Well, not exactly "boots" . . . more like "pumps".

Are these not THE most adorable ring holders you've ever seen???  

Last Saturday night, Hubby and I went out for dinner for our anniversary ~ to my most favorite restaurant.  After dinner, we decided to stroll through a cute little home accent store nearby.  When I saw those amazing ring holders in the display case, a whole wonderful variety of them, I knew I had to have one.  Actually, I didn't end up getting one for myself, but one for a friend's upcoming birthday ;o).  

Let me tell how I struggled when I got home about perhaps just keeping it for myself.  I know I could go back to the store to buy another for me, but there was only one of each style, and I just loved the one I picked.  

Hmmmm . . . huge dilemma.

Well, my sweet, wonderful, thoughtful Hubby stopped by that store on his way home from work the other day, and bought another shoe so I could have one.  Now I have to decide which to keep and which to give to my friend.  
Decisions, decisions . . . 

The night we went in there after dinner, the sales woman was telling me that a few days earlier a woman came in and bought several of the shoes for her granddaughters.
The woman was handing down some of her family heirloom rings to each of her 
granddaughters, and was putting them in the ring shoes as part of the gift.  What a wonderful gift that must have been for each of those lucky ladies!  

Although these shoes are designed so "bootifully", and with such gorgeous detail, they're quite affordable ~ under $20.  How could a girl resist a new shoe at that price???

Thanks for visiting! 
Leave a comment so I can get to know you.
