This is my front door. The sled is the coolest! The Silver Streak! How fun!
I found this sweet sled in a dusty old salvage store in Exmore, Virginia!
I love the shameless self advertising!
This is my back door with another sled (with less propaganda) and another skate (the match to the one by the front door). I found the skates at a yard sale. I wrapped the base of the greens in plastic cling wrap, since the skates are my size and technically, I could pitch the greens and skate in them, if the Burg ever froze! A few weekends ago we hit near 70 degrees! I guess I have a better shot at the
This one was the sled we used to pull our little ones around the snowy yard, when they were small! Extra greens go in this one, waiting to be placed when the other greens get too brittle.
I recently got some of my dad's things. Reminders of my childhood, came rushing back as I opened a box from Gimbles. My daddy's old skates. I remember him holding my hand and leading me out onto a frozen pond in those! Under the skates, a receipt (Dad kept all of his files and receipts in order, ALWAYS)! It was a gift from my aunt to my dad and the cost of these fancy skates, was only $9.00 in 1969! These are also the same skates Dad wore on his first date with Mom, at Lakemont Park, in Pennsylvania! I would never decorate with these, they are far too special with their plaid flannel linings! Maybe the memories of skating and sledding with Dad are why I decorate the way I do in the winter.
Dad kept everything! The old receipt is still in the box! My Aunt's signature is on it! I love that!
I think I need to shine these babies up!
