We are anticipating over a foot of snow here in Massachusetts. We expect that at least once a season in New England, but that does not mean we welcome it. It is charming to look out the homestead windows and see the white landscape but someone has to also shovel it! I am sharing some older pics in this post. My go- to winter icon in decorating my doors is vintage skates. The front door here, at the homestead with black skates a plaid scarf and silver balls and silver stars. The silver reflects nicely with a spot light directed on it.
I painted these skates picturing a snowman on a blustery day for my friend for Christmas a few years ago.A bit of fur and glitter sparkle placed in front of the fireplace.
I am not a gifted skater but plan to try it again this winter. I should probably stick with watching the skating competitions, but am going to try.
Here, I simply added big red pompoms to the white skates. They remind me of the red fur pompoms I had on my skates as a girl. A little fake snow was attached with a glue gun and accented with red check ribbon bow. A great bonus for decorating with ice skates beside that they look inviting is that you can keep them up all season long.
Stay warm and
thank you for visiting the homestead.
