The White House Decks The Halls 2009


Well, the White House is ready for Christmas. I love how tasteful and elegant everything looks, yet it's very simply done, too....it's just right!

Michelle Obama's Jimmy Choo Garden Boots


The Victory Garden is under way at The White House and this is a project that I am very excited about...not only because I love to garden, but just look at First Lady Michelle Obama's Jimmy Choo Biker leather flat gardening boots:

Are they too cute or what?



Now, I'm all for dressing down and dirty when I garden, but I might have to rethink my grungy look after seeing these motorcycle boots in the mud on the White House lawn!!! It's so unexpected and hip, I love it!



In fact, I loved the whole look she had for gardening day:

I have a feeling garden chic is going to take on a whole new look, thanks to our first lady and I, for one, am right on board with that. Who says gardening can't be glamorous?
