Vintage Winter Fun



It's time to take this down but I wanted to get a photo to show you before we store it away. We put this up every year, a vintage sled (ca. mid-1950s) and my skates from about 1970. It doesn't help the condition of the sled for it to be out every winter, all winter, but I really like it as a decoration. 

I see that it is time for me to clean out last year's perennials. I like to leave the dead growth as protection from the cold.

Here is the info from the back of the sled:

What a coincidence, I bought a pair of white skates at an estate sale today. And I have a sled real similar to yours. Love the ways yours looks with the grenery.
Happy VTT

I am waiting for a little warmer day. I love my yard and can't wait to get back out again.

This brings back fond winter memories of sledding down the hill by our house or having fun at the rink just down the street--back when I enjoyed being out in the cold! I leave the dead garden growth too. It's fun to watch the birds come grab it for nesting materials in the spring.

Nice display! I used to have a sled like that one in our family but I don't know what ever happened to it. Wish I had it now so I could copy you... :)

Very sweet, and so appropriate for the Olympic time of year.
