Taking the Plunge…

My love of the old.

My love of rescuing something that still has life in it.

My newfound joyfulness in a pile of fabric and rags.

I’m putting them together and have officially listed my first REPURPOSED item up for sale. I’m putting myself out there as (gasp!) an artist. A garbage artist.


Combat boots ultimately speak to the ongoing wars in our world.

This wearable art piece seeks to counter the hatred with something soft and wonderful.

Vintage pearls evoke feelings and memories of our mothers and grandmothers. Allowing ourselves to feel those feelings is a direct stand against the hatred of war.

On the flip side, there are those who say war is necessary. For those, let these speak to the reasons for which we fight. Honor. Goodness. Peace. Freedom.

These are a worn pair of Doc Marten combat boots in approximately a womens size 9. The soles do not show much wear, however there are crease marks across the toe box and a crack in the leather above the left achilles area. They are completely wearable should you wish to wear these.

Should you wish to display them, they have no ‘odd’ odors.

The war boot has a keychain of an automatic weapon and a keychain that says “Do unto others before they do unto you”

The peace boot has a strand of vintage pearls and three clip on vintage earrings. The yellow tie is tattered, worn and tied together in places symbolizing the realities that somewhere in our world, there is always war.


I will ship these FREE in Canada or the USA. $69.99

    These are amazing! I am a Doc Marten fanatic, and I love the contrast of pearls and jack boots. I only wish that I had bigger feet…then I wouldn’t have to go through the agony of breaking in my new pair!
