‘Day’cation inspiration

Michael and I really need a VAcation, but for now a ‘day’cation was about all we could squeeze into the schedule.  An overnight stay in Long Beach, Washington; just to get away and relax.

Michael forgot to pack a jacket or sweatshirt.  I forgot to pack my hairbrush and it RAINED all day!  Oh well.  We did some sight-seeing from the car, and visited lots of little antique and thrift shops.  More pics to come in a later post, but HERE is my favorite sight from the trip:

How stinkin’ CUTE are all these little red rain boots filled with plants?!?!?

Unfortunately the shop was closed for the day.  A handwritten noted explained their child was participating in the county fair.

With this much creativity showing outside, I can only imagine the fun displays we missed!

And now I am ‘on a mission’ to find LOTS of one color of rainboots so I can replicate this idea for next spring.  Maybe yellow boots filled with purple pansies?

I wish I’d looked a little closer at the boots.   Wondering if they really were all red to begin with, OR if they had been painted red with the new vinyl spray paint???    They ARE all the exact same shade of red, after all.  Any of you tried the new vinyl spray paints on rubber rainboots???

  1. The boots are awesome. Yellow with purple pansies would be a great color combo.

  2. I bet they were painted. One of the boots looks like a little black showing thru. It is a very cool idea! It looks so “AMERICAN” with the white chair and the geraniums! I have tried the plastic paint on those plastic lawn chairs and it lasted for 2 years before repainting. And that is out in the weather 24/7! It seems it would work. We all will be waiting for pictures next spring! Diane

  3. I just picked up a pair of rain boots at a yard sale with the same idea in mind. I had no idea about the spray paint….hmmmm….now the wheels are turning. I can’t wait to see what you do!
