She's gotta wear somethin... (boots for my wife)

I recently informed my wife that the boots I made her for her birthday are too pretty for her to wear, as we currently need them to show customers. This week, however, she has kindly agreed to help out at our vendor booth down at Abilene's Western Heritage Classic. I am of the opinion that one shouldn't work at the Leverett Boots vendor booth less they are proudly standing in a pair. So I whipped these up for her over the weekend; she's gotta wear somethin. ...and something might as well be made to measure chocolate horse hide with a turquoise James Leddy inspired one row pattern on cemented and pegged sole.

The boots, in my opinion, are much the same as my sweet wife: simple, classy, and they seem to smile back when you look at 'em. Love you, Sarah.

Boots for my Father

These full quill ostrich dress boots with royal blue calfskin tops and 6 rows of stitching are made to measure for my father. It was a joy to make these boots as without him I would likely only be dreaming of having my own shop while slaving for another maker.

He is a real go-getter of a guy and he wears a cowboy hat that, around here, warrants a certain level of respect. Now he has the boots to match. Thanks Dad.
