Boot-iful Boot Sale

Monkeychild and I got up early today for our first boot sale of the year... can see that she's raring to go..or perhaps not!

Anyway, by now you'll probably have guessed that the above boots were the best buy of the day. I love boots and these two are smashers. The green boots are suede with leather and sheepskin trims; they've even got a lovely lacing detail at the back, Yet, one of the best things about them apart from how great they look is the Utility CC41 label inside each boot:

However, they don't fit my hooves, so I am gutted! But fortunately the black ones fit perfectly. Unlike the others these aren't CC41; although they're Clarks and even came with the original box minus the lid:

Its funny really as back in January this year Her Vintage Life Magazine printed an article of mine about CC41 clothes and in it I wrote some words that turned out to be rather prophetic..

...spooky eh?

And the boots aren't the only Utility that I brought today, as I also chanced upon this small Spode Utility teapot:

Its actually light green not blue!
These teapots are reputed to be excellent pourers, with their non-drip spouts and self-locking lids. I have yet to try this out for myself, but will do so later this afternoon whilst watching 'The Railway Children' DVD with Monkeychild.
