Raining in Austin

June 22, 2011 § Leave a comment

The rain is finally falling here in beautiful (if a little parched) Austin, Texas. This rain is really coming down and we could not be happier about it. Really, it is so lovely to hear that beautiful sound.

Naturally, rain gets me to thinking about rain boots. Jimmy Choo just put their spin on a rain boot last year: This really cracks me up, I gotta say.

When I’m jumping in puddles, I’m pretty happy to wear my cowboy boots or just take my shoes off. But, I guess if you want to spend $300 on rubber shoes more power to ya.

Now please excuse me, my darling husband has just gone out to frolic in the rain with our dogs and I need to get that on video.

Well, now we can get moving!

I recently got married and made a lot of stuff for the wedding. I made my dress,

I made boots for my mother, I made tablecloths and runners and oh-so-many decisions. The craziness of planning a wedding finally over, I finally feel like I can move forward with my work. More photos of the wedding to come…

Next on the block is a weekly class at Studio Griffin where I will be teaching a small group of adult students how to make a leather clutch. This is a great class for people with minimal experience who will walk out after four two-hour sessions with a very high quality, beautiful bag. There is still room in the class, which starts the first Wednesday night in July. Click on the link above or email me at juliawardboots@gmail.com for more information.

Have a great week!

Where Am I?
