Merry, Merry. Slowly.

Slowly getting ready for the holidays...

The outside  decor is all taken care of...

The hall tree is swagged...

And MY 55 year old skates are hanging next to Santa's hat. How is it possible that MY skates are this old when I'm only 39? I must have calculated that wrong...they must be MY 35 year old skates, LOL.


  1. That was a very cute post, love the skates, no matter how old they are :)

  2. Hello Deezie:
    Yes, I can remember wearing those little skates...I was either 3 or 4. My feet were so cold that my cousin had to take me home before the skating party was over :(
    Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday season!

  3. Wow! Those are your old skates? That's so neat considering people are searching for them. your sense of humor!

  4. True story, those are my skates! I still have my first skating dress too, but it might be too grungy to show on here. It's blue velvet, lined with white velvet and trimmed with white, angora rabbit fur. My mother made it for me when I was 5 or 6.
    Thanks for stopping by and commenting :)

  5. Your skates are beautiful! I could have used skates a few weeks ago when the lake behind my house froze solid. Of course I'd need lessons too! I really would love to see your little skating dress...grungy or not. It sounds adorable.

  6. That little dress might be the topic of a January post :) I must dig it out and have another peek...


Your comments are valued. I read every one of them. (In fact I often go back and reread them.) They really do make my day! Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to write to me.
