Old Skis Find a New Home for Christmas

Yes, that's real snow at the bottom from our Dec. 8th snowfall
The radio is playing "Let it Snow" and "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" so what better decoration for the porch than a set of skis?  My husband had this old pair sitting in the attic for years.  Finally, this year we pulled them down.  I love an old sled draped in holly that I occasionally see on front lawns.  So why not a pair of skis?!  They have lived a good life on the slopes, so this week we gave them a Second Chance as a decoration.  And when the snow fell yesterday, it just completed the Christmas look!
They add color to the porch in the day, and they're lighted at night by the Bethlehem Star hanging nearby.


  1. U should paint them next year and distress them a bit. They would be perfect
