Decor and Boots

Catching up on happenings from the last few weeks...

First, decor. We hardly had an autumn here. The weather stayed very warm day after day, feeling like extended summer instead of autumn. Nonetheless, I decorated for Halloween/autumn. I used some orange and purple plaid fabric and added lots of pumpkins because I seem to go crazy for orange every October.

(Today, we finally had a change in the weather... in typical Colorado fashion, a BIG change. Yesterday it was  yet another warm, sunny day (77F / 25C); today the high temperature was 38F / 3C and snow was falling.)



Second, boots. I have liked the look of John Fluevog boots for ages. Fluevog opened a store in Denver three years ago, and I finally took myself there. Though I had low expectations of finding anything to fit my wide feet, I discovered that the men's 7th Heaven Derby Swirl boot fit perfectly. So I bought my first pair of Fluevogs. They are super comfortable.

Photographing the black-with-white-swirls boots against the black-with-white-swirls rug was entirely fortuitous. :)

    1. It was like summer held on as long as it could... then finally surrendered and the temperature plummeted. Thank you!
