Christmas skate display
I thought I would share a little project I quickly put together.
I had seen something like this at the lodge at our cottage.
They also have an old pair or work boots with flowers in it for the summer.
I have also seen one on Beth's blog and on pinterest.
But lets get back to the winter display.
I picked up a pair of skates from the Thrift store for about $7.00.
Then went to the dollar store and picked up this sprig for $1.50.
Stuck the sprig in the skate and voila you have a pretty display.
And because I bought a pair of skates and a couple sets of sprigs, I made two of them ;)
Sorry about all the shine on this photo....but you get see how I displayed them.
Now you know how much I love my Coca-Cola. I have only been drinking one can of Coke for the whole week, including the weekend.
I have been doing pretty good, except for this weekend.
But look at all this slushy, cold Coke on the top of my glass......makes your mouth water doesn't it.
Well this is why I had so much slushy Coke in my glass. I forgot to take these 2 cans of pop out of the freezer. They were in there all night, see how they are bulging at the ends of the cans, lol.
I am so so happy that they didn't explode.
That happened to my girlfriend many years ago, she told me it was a mess to clean it out of the freezer.
Onto My Day:
My goal for today was to wear my jammie pants, watch Christmas movies, and catch up on my emails.
I always make wild rice casserole for the family Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve . I have to soak the wild rice the night before. But when I went to get the rice out...I didn't even have 1/4 of a cup and I have to double the recipe as the family complained there wasn't enough, so I needed 2 full cups.
So I had to get dressed and Wayne and I ran to the reserve to pick up some.
Then we came home, I put my jammies back on, caught up on a lot of my emails and we watched A Christmas Story.
This is Heather's and my favourite Christmas movie.
I hope you all have had a creative Sunday :)
