If only Mona were around to enjoy the pictures you entered in the Tredstep’s Make Mona Smile, Win Boots Contest, she’d not only smile, she’d snort that nice Italian red we’re sure she was sipping (how else would one sit and pose in Renaissance Italy?) right out through her nose. As they sifted through entries, the chinchillas were rolling on the ground laughing. Or taking dust baths. (Sometimes it’s hard to tell). They might have been doing both at once.
Anyway, now it’s your turn. Vote for the pic that makes you smile the most, and help a fellow EN reader smile as well as they zip up the luscious leather Da Vinci Stretch Field Boots that won’t make them weep during a break in time — BECAUSE THERE ISN’T ONE!
