Christmas Skates

 Ice skates are a fun alternative to a Christmas wreath for your front door decor.
I like to use a colorful cording for the shoe laces and sometimes even add glitter
to the whole shoe. Just glue a piece of styrofoam inside and begin adding
embellishments until you are happy with the way it looks. I like to tie the skates
together first before I begin decorating. Hot gluing the pieces to the styrofoam
will make it more secure.

This is a pair that I sold at the boutique a few weeks ago.

It is currently one of the things that I enjoy making the most.
It sort of reminds me of the flower arranging class I
took in college that I loved. (Those were the days!)

Have a lovely weekend!

12 Easy Vintage Christmas Decorating Ideas

Vintage items can be used very effectively in Christmas decor. Here
are some ideas that I rounded up--any of which would add a nostalgic
touch to your home for the holiday season without breaking the bank.
So look around and see what you have on hand. You may be surprised--
vintage doesn't have to be 100 years old!

 You need a new cheese grater anyhow, don't you?
And you can always add the rust spots!

 Check your attic, garage, basement, curbsides, or
Goodwill for an old worn out chair, even a rocking chair.

Drag out that silver you never use and 
DON'T even think about polishing it!

Shabby chic!
