These Boots Were Made for Walking

Several years ago, I worked on a Black Tie and Blue Jean fundraiser for UCP of Central Maryland. We held a Benefit Concert with Emmie Lou Harris and we decorated the space in a country/western theme. We decided to use boots as the centerpieces.
I ordered a bunch of used cowboy boots in various sizes on ebay. We then had several painting parties where friends came over and spent the evening drinking wine and painting boots. I have some very talented friends!
These boots were designed by local artist, Kelli Nemer.

Love the cow spots!
We filled the boots with wild flowers
and placed them on the tables around the space.

These boots just came back to me...they have been in my friend's garage since the event. Any ideas on how I can use them again?

I would LOVE for you to link me! I need to sell these suckers. I bought what I thought was somewhat committed. The supplies will make three projects, or I am making the Christmas project so that some of the overflow supplies can be used on that. It will be awesome... I promise!! melanie
