Wearing boots previously owned by Sheryl Crow...how cool is that?


I am not one who would consider themselves all that lucky. Of course, I know I am for all that I have, my health, family, wonderful friends and all that other great stuff but on a day to day basis, like playing the lottery or buying a raffle ticket, I rarely win a thing. Who would have ever thought I'd be lucky enough to win a pair of boots pre-owned by my favorite singer, Sheryl Crow? Surely not me! She sings the songs of my life and I love her so much but these things always go way above my grasp since I am a poor working girl. Although as I watched the auction it appeared I might just be able to snatch a pair of her boots within reason. Wow, I couldn't believe my eyes!  The girl certainly has some good taste so I wanted them all and I was watching all the boots that came close to my size. I mean I had to be able to wear them or why bother. Her feet are a bit bigger than my own. One of about 20 items would be mine, if possible. I've been shopping on eBay for years and sell crochet items there so I knew I had to be ruthless and bid at the very last minute and place my top bid. Talk about a nervous wreck that morning. I had told myself not to be disappointed because it was unlikely I would even be in the running come the last minute but I watched with anticipation all morning as the bid never went any higher than the $150 bid I saw each time I looked at this pair. When it came down to the last minute I put in my bid of $200 as top bid and to my surprise it only went up to $153 with myself as the winning bidder. Yippeee! Add an extra $18 for shipping and for under $200 I was the proud owner of a pair of Sheryl's boots. I couldn't have been happier! When they arrived I put them on and wore them around the house all evening. I don't know if a person can actually feel cooler than they are but that's how I felt. And kind of funky! lol I loaded my cd player with some of her older cd's including "Home For Christmas" so I was all set for the season. The flashback jam session was on. I've had the best time and I finally wore my boots over the holiday. Love, love, love!

I had the pleasure of making a new friend on Facebook after posting on Sheryl's page about winning the boots. She herself had won a pair and was feeling as cool and funky as I was. I stated I was planning to wear them drinking on a Tuesday with a guy named William but I bet his name will be Bill, or Billy, or Mack or Buddy and she stated she had been saying the same thing (lyrics from Sheryl's first hit song "All I Wanna Do"). As it turns out she only lives two hours from me and we plan to get our boots together come spring. With any luck Sheryl may do a tour and we could meet there. Now that would be cool and funky!







The auction is over but if you would like to make a donation to Feeding America you can do so here.

“It is so important for everyone across the country to dare to be conscious and aware of the struggles of those around them—even if those struggles are not the same as their own. Feeding America does just that, and it’s a great privilege for me to unite with them in their cause.” ~ Sheryl Crow

    1. Needless to say I am thrilled with them! I give a donation through eBay works each time I buy something on eBay so I double dipped on this buy. It always feels good to give and good to get too. I was able to do both. Love it! Thanks for stopping by Patti and I hope you are having a great new year yourself!

I Have Officially Retired My Ugg Boots For The Season

UGG.com
My Ugg boots are probably my favorite shoewear. I love them! My feet have a tendency to get cold but not while wearing these. I have read that men don't like them but I think they are cute as can be and my hubby doesn't complain. Yes, I even like them with shorts. Although I only wear them with jeans. With the sun finally coming out, sadly it's time to place them at the back of my closet.
Top: ModCloth Jeans: Levi's 515
The top I have on is the most softest thing I own and was purchased at my favorite internet clothing shop...ModCloth. It is the The-Great-Estate-Dress and is currently sold out. They have some really cool, unique items. This was listed as a dress but was a bit short for me since you can see through the bottom layer. I pulled it up a bit and it was perfect as a top with my Levis. It would be cute with leggings or a short skirt and tights too.  I'm still trying to get out of my Levis and into some more stylish outfits but I love them so. Still …

The Cabbage Patch Kids inspired crochet hat

I just love Cabbage Patch Kids! Years ago my dad went on a mission to get me one when they were hard to find. With the invent of the internet you can almost find anything these days but back in the day it wasn't so easy. He finally succeeded but there was always a story about what a time he had. He was able to get me two in the long run. The first a little boy named Bobby George (my dad's name was Bobby also) just in case he couldn't get his hands on a girl with red hair. Luckily eventually someone was able to get the girl doll for him to give to me. I was so pleased to get them and he was so happy giving them to me that it is a memory I will always treasure. Whenever I think of Cabbage Patch dolls I always think of him. I get them out once in awhile and clean them up but I hope to display them after I paint my second bedroom which I hope to make whimsical and colorful. Arlene looked like she could use a bit of sprucing up when I got her out for pictures so I'm not su…

Saturday was date night!

♥ Dress:  Modcloth ♥ Sweater:  Ralph Lauren ♥ Booties: Modcloth-boots
On Saturday morning snoozing late was a must after all that booze on Friday night. After finally getting up I was still tired and since my favorite show recorded the night before I wanted to watch it while I tried to wake up. I absolutely love Haven! Although it's just one more reason to stay out of Maine :o) Art got up early and went to breakfast with his brothers and washed the car so I had the house to myself. If I wanted to watch tv in the morning, why not? I mean I was going to be another year older the next day so I figured I could do whatever I wanted. Although not productive I didn't have to wonder what strange occurrences were happening in that strange little town. I did finally get up and do a bit of housework since my family were coming over the next day for cake but I only gave it a lick and a promise. Before I knew it it was time to get ready. I bought my dress from Modcloth when they had the …
