Ice Skates

Hello everyone!  Over the weekend, I packed up all my Fall things and started decorating for Christmas.  I started in the hallway with the little table that Charlie made for me back in September.

This summer, I was lucky enough to find not just one but two pair of ice skates.  One pair I found at an antique mall and the other pair I found at a thrift store.

I’m having so much fun accessorizing my little table in the hallway with the change of seasons.

  8. This looks fabulous, Gail! Really beautiful! I once saw a pair of kids ice skates at an antique mall a few years back. Still kicking myself for not buying them!

  13. Yesterday I decorated the basement for Christmas. I have my son Charlie coming for Thanksgiving with his family and I want them to take back their presents, so how could I give them their presents without a Christmas theme. Hubby is usually against doing Christmas before Thanksgiving, but one only knows it's down there if they dare to go...

  16. I love it, Gail! This is perfect for Winter and Christmas! Lucky you finding the skates. So far any I've scene, even a single skate, was more than I wanted to spend. I'll keep my eyes open though. Who knows, I may get lucky. I always wanted to do an outdoor vignette with ice skates. I do have my little sled, though, so I'm happy I had even found that at a yard sale. I think I'm going to take my stuff down from the attic before Thanksgiving, where normally I wait until the Friday. This way I'll be raring to go first thing Friday morning.

I went with a "Baby it's cold outside" theme,so far a sled and small tree decorated with ice skates, snowballs, and hot cocoa, cappuccino, ornaments.Love the Ice skate vignette. I have been wanting to do something similar but no luck in finding a pair of skates.Can't wait to see what you come up with next,I so love reading your posts.

  21. I don't have a head start on Christmas unless you count the ice skates I got at a garage sale that have been hanging on the mudroom coat tree since July. At least I know where they are, and there will be no excuse not to get a wreath made out of them.
