To celebrate her 250th birthday, Beatrix Potter came to Teapottersville! For all the details, check out the MMTPT365 Teapoter challenge and play along with us! EVERYONE is welcome!
Meet Dee Dee Bootsenfritz and her kitty sidekick Hans Boot. She lives in a tiny town in southern Utah called Tropic and works on the Campbell farm where they grow carrots, clover, celery, basil and broccoli ... all the veggies that bunnies could want. She loves her life in this quaint, county town and her kitty, Hans Boot. And then ... there is her love affair with her BOOTS! Oh, yes. From garden to hiking to Chukka to work, to western to Chelsea to polo to motorcycle ... she has them all! In her closet you will find tall, short, knee-high, fashion, rain, winter, fall, booties, designer, ankle and flat. There are striped, polka dotted, flowered, lacy, pink, purple, orange, faux suede, snake, crocodile and leather. They tie, zip, snap, button, lace, and more. WHODATHUNK there were SO many kinds of boots??
Dee Dee had only one problem. Her closet was overflowing with boots and she desperately needed money to add another BIG closet to her burrow. Working on the farm was great but she needed to earn more money for that closet. But what, where, how? One afternoon on a work break, as she lay basking in the sunshine, enjoying a freshly picked, crunchy, juicy carrot, she got a brilliant idea ... .
Hope you will join us in reinventing one of your stamps and that you'll tell us a story, too!
Thanks for looking! :)
