Why Lavender Chick, how do you keep your boots standing so tall? And – didn’t Nikki Sixx always wear cowboy boots?

Saturday, January 15th, 2011

I had a list of things to accomplish today. Remember my last post where I claimed to be all ambitious by getting my Christmas decorations put away? Well – I got a little distracted and a week later I’m deciding to tackle the project again.


It’s a cold and rainy day and for some reason sitting by the fire and reading sounds so much more pleasing. So – I probably won’t get much done today except for hollering for Jack when it’s time to put another log on the fire.

As I type this, I am taking a brief break from my book and Jack is now reading his book. So what are we reading?


Jack is reading a book about George Washington because he’s just smart like that.

I’m reading a book about Nikki Sixx and Motley Crue because I’m just cool like that.

Because – you know, opposites attract and we’re just good like that.


Since I don’t want to feel like I’ve wasted an entire day reading a book about Nikki Sixx (which is REALLY good), I will share this bit of Lavender Chick wisdom:

You have just stepped inside my closet in which you see my boots standing oh so tall.  How do they do that?

Well, take a look inside the boot.  What is that inside of there?

No... I'm not stashing booze inside my boots.  I'm recycling empty wine bottles by using them to hold up my boots. 

Because this is what they do otherwise.  They just flop over. 

Y'all have a great day and hope you have enjoyed this helpful hint.  I am getting back to my very good book.  I can't seem to put it down. 

I also have a feeling that Nikki Sixx probably stashed other things in his boots for other reasons....
