Daddy's Boys


Private Collection

These little boots belonged to my husband and his two brothers.  The toes are scuffed, and the heels are worn.  You can tell that they were well loved by all of the boys.

Darla McDowell said...

Thank you, Karen, Amanda and Page. I should have painted them on a bigger panel, but the little boots were so fun. And I think that I will keep this one. I am too sentimental. :)
