Last week, I realized I had just missed my 3 year Etsyversary. I was looking in my shop for another reason on Monday, and I realized that the previous day was the date I joined Etsy . September 20, 2006.
Last year on my second Etsyversary, I made some special commemorative ACEO's and this year the whole thing just slipped my mind.
Then on Tuesday, a friend reminded me that the traditional gift for a 3rd anniversary is leather!
This was all the rationalization I needed to buy myself these fabulous vintage boots as an Etsyversary present!

Then I got looking at more and more vintage shoes and boots. Oh how I love fall weather (aka BOOT WEATHER) and how I love leather and SUEDE!
These are all shoes and boots on Etsy that I am currently lusting after. Click to see full size.

I cannot really justify 12 new pairs of shoes, though. The two black pairs in the second row are to DIE for, but I currently have about 30 pairs of black shoes. What's a girl to do?? Post a comment and vote for your favorite pair.

Last week was also my mother's 80'th birthday! Now THAT'S a milestone!
I made her a lemon meringue pie instead of a birthday cake.

I totally dig the black ones, but my faves are the green on the bottom left, and the mod multi-purple ones on the bottom right. Dooooooooo iiiiiiiiiit.......

I used to have a pair of boots like that many years ago, but in lighter leather. Sigh. My favorite ones.

And I LOVE those green shoes in the bottom left of the treasury!

I ended up buying these black ones last night. Soap ( said if I didn't buy them, she would!

I LOOOVE the purple ones on the bottom right and the price is a bargain, but they are 6.5 narrow, while I wear a 6.5 medium. I worry they might be too narrow for my feet.
