Ok nice boots but Im loving your stairs! I want to paint ours - would you recommend it? Sinead x
I would, Sinead - they used to be varnished pine, which I hated. The painted stairs need more frequent hoovering/dusting but it's well worth it for their lightness. They are just about due a touch-up now after two years; the Farrow & Ball floor-paint is very good.
Not only good looking boots, but clever too. And yes, the stairs are wonderful.
It wasn't quite time for the boots Mise?
It mustn't have been, Jacqueline. Boots can be very inscrutable.
Eerm.....OK.....Have you been on the Blue Sapphire and tonic, Mise ??!!Just kidding......cute little boots and a lovely way to show off your Farrow and Ball painted stairs !Enjoy the weekend, Mise. XXXX
Jacqueline, I wouldn't dream of opening the bottle till you reach here. Much though I am often tempted.
I love photos of children's shoes - a snapshot in time, that's for sure. :)
Clarkes? I thought they were Ugg - much more sensible. I bet they love them.
totally cute. i like that they cant decide...ps, your comment on my last post made me laugh.... alot!thx for that~laura
I often find boots and shoes left in the middle of our stairs, too (though never as photogenically). Unfortunately our stairs are not light and airy like yours so I don't always see the boots and shoes till I've tripped over them - for me, boots on stairs is dark and dangerous...
Those boots are made for walking.xo Jane
Genius. And your white staircase..! Beautiful.xoox-maria
My childrens shoes magically transport themselves too. From the doorway or hall where they are dumped to outside their bedroom door. Just like magic. Do your stairs wear?
Do your beautiful little girls also have the power to make themselves invisible? Uh oh. You are in trouble.
Ha! And that, my friend Mise, takes the blogging crown. Cool photography, amazing interior design capabilities and lovely boots. It's the trifecta of blogging.
They don't wear badly at all, Jane - a few scrapes from moving furniture upstairs, but otherwise they would go years with no extra painting.
LOVE the contrasts!!! I totally loved my white-painted stairs in my last house...well worth the small amount of upkeep.But, more than that, these two pictures take the cake! Coming and going, these dramatic photographs about your little girls win the prize!
Do you have the cleanest children on earth? White. Everywhere. I am unworthy.
Yep. Just when you think you need them...
I love this post Mise...so simple, so cute and so fun!
Very Tidy House Award ..your children are so lovely!
Clever boots. And very snug looking.
I so need to F & B my stairs! And then the rest of the house! Great post!
