Wild, Wild West

I grew up on Bonanza and Gunsmoke.  I'm not a wild, wild west kind of gal, but I do love me some cowboy boots (although I don't own a pair of my own!) and I have a fetish for stars.  This star has a western kind of look, don't you agree?

I found these boots at a local flea market crammed in a corner (my kind of hunt).  They were filled with old newspaper and not suitable for wear.  So I did what I always do, I painted them white!  I intend to use them as a pair of bookends for children's books in my shop or maybe even for planters.  Of course, in this photo,  I had to show off one of my favorite decorating books.  I have much to learn!

The white star belongs in my kitchen along with the old milk bottles and my favorite Ball Jar that I use for flowers!  The basket is a very old basket, an estate-find.  The blue patina wood came from my sister's barn.  It is my favorite.  You will see it again when I decide what I am going to do with it.  Any ideas?
