After that I got the itch to make something creative and yes, a little bit rock and roll. Even, dare I say, a little punk rock? I decided to dig out my very first pair of Doctor Martian boots and make a flower planter out of them.
First I made a self watering planter from a plastic water bottle Husband got after running a road race and a bit of leftover t-shirt material.
The original laces from my boots were long gone. I think I cannibalized them as laces for one of my many Elizabethan bodices. No worries! I used a pair of pink shoe laces that I got from a past Race For The Cure to lace the bottle planter snugly into each boot.
I planted some free wildflower seeds that I got from an Earth Day event into each boot. I watered and waited and watered and waited.
My apologies for the photo quality. I had to use my PDA.
Ta da! My boots are now a punk rock planter.
