~ SCATTERBRAINED POST ~


Before we talk about relationships and how interesting they are, I thought I would share these little boots with you.  Ok...so they are not all that little, size 8 to be exact, but think how many flowers can be planted in them this Spring!  Good idea, not original but HEY!  Still a good idea.  I wonder how they do that.  A few rocks, some gravel, perhaps some of that foam...oh wait, Tootsie would know.  That woman is brilliant with it comes to this stuff...
So..what do you think.  Just $1.00 at a garage sale a few weeks ago.  I forgot to show them to you.  I think it was the only thing I bought that day if I remember right. 
Cute?  I sat them on the front porch next to the fountain.  I hope you like them.
Rose covered ones would have been nice..but these are RED and fit right in.

They make me smile every time I step out onto the front porch.  :) Yeah...like this..  :):)

My children are watching my diet...can you imagine being made to eat this gorgeous salad.  I am NOT a salad lover (chocolate bread pudding is more my..um..taste) but I ate every single drop of this..and not a whimper out of me!  Thanks kids!  (Courtesy of Jammin' Bread Bakery, bless their hearts!)  My eldest son and his wife own it....so..am I lucky or not..  :)

Would you just look at how earnestly eldest Granddaughter is listening to her Grandma out here in California.
LOVE that Skype thingy!  Will Kristy hate this picture I took of her?  ..oh probably.  But she'll get over it.
She takes life in stride...and I love that about her!  Imagine.  She is the oldest of the 14 Grands. 
Hugs to you Kristy!  Grandma loves you and misses you.


I wanted to chat about how amazing relationships are...and I had one certain one in mind.  Later.

Hugs and love,
Mona

Sheesh...I get sidetracked SO easily! :)

'Lovin' those boots girl...let me tell you, they beat the heck outta the manure stompin' barn boots I wear 'round the Ponderosa!!!

I am looking for a pair of yellow or red boots for my garden. You found a beautiful pair. Maybe I will be so lucky too.

Gail said...

Rocks or styrofoam peanuts will work, any thing to help the plant drain.

I would be wearing those bad babies in this mud.

Mellodee said...

The boots are terrific and using them as planters is inspired! Course, they are adorable just as boots too....ummmm, I can wear an 8 (with a little kleenex stuffed in the toes)....just in case you decide not to "plant" them!!

How do you find all of these neat things at the sales? I go to them and don't find hardly anything. The little boots are cute. Can't wait to see what you plant in them.

I love the boots...they will look fantastic with some red geraniums and blue lobelia in them. I'm not Tootsie but I like a lot of flowers. I'm looking forward to hearing what you have to say about relationships!

I love your tartan boots, Mona. Hope you find more interesting treasures tomorrow!

Desiree said...

Oh Mona! I loved this scatterbrained post - even though you'd not specifically mentioned the one relationship you'd intended covering here, you did touch on a few...your son & DIL, your granddaughter and your daughters :)

I love salad and the one you'd had to eat looked yummy! Why are you 'dieting?' You look perfect just as you are!

Your patio/porch garden is so beautiful, Mona. Your plants are the picture of glowing health! And I think the boots fit right in! Don't forget to make a couple of drainage holes in the soles before you plant them up :)

Thank you for leaving such a lovely comment on my blog, Mona - I really am thrilled to know my posts bring you much pleasure!!!

Hugs,

Des xo

These boots are too cute! I like them just standing there. I had some little girl ones, I found in the goodwill. I just stood them in my garden. They only lasted one season in the sun.
They faded and cracked. I hope to find another pair. I put rocks in the bottom of mine, and then fake flowers! lol

Just read your today's comment. You are so sweet...that is why I nominated you for the Irresistibly Sweet Award (#139-YIPPPPPEEEEEEE! LOOKEY WHAT I GOT!)...when you didn't pick it up I assumed you were one of those who got so many awards that you no longer accepted them. It's yours anyway, because it fits you so well.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY SEPTUAGENERIAN BLOGGING! I AM HAPPY TO FIND THAT I AM NOT. NO WONDER YOUR BLOG RESONATES SO WELL WITH ME! kt
