I don't have a barn or a tack room ,so my Boot Rack is living in the front hall. It is made of mahogany and is most likely English. Could be French because of the design on the end. I would say the age is most likely 1850. I would love to have a least one pair of tall leather boots, with there form inside, to complete the picture. Any body out there have a pair? I might be interested. Today most people just throw the boots in a pile on the floor. Life has changed. Of course we do not have servants these days, to keep the boots. Most people have never heard of a riding boot as they have never rode. Well I would say that there surely is a Boot Rack at Downton Abbey. What do you think?
Come by for a tour anytime. I will always leave the lights on and Sissy Dog will meet you with a jump and a kiss.

This is a repeat from last year, but Sissy and I still stand by what we say. Happy Valentines Day to each and every one of you out there. I wish I could give each of you some flowers and candy, but, Sissy's beautiful picture is the best I can do. We have snow and ice covered everything here in Missouri, but the sun is shining and tomorrow is promised to be a nice day. I hope all your dreams come true. I sure wish mine would.
