The Ice Skate Tree

 I finally got a new tree for all my ice skate ornaments ..and here it is! I got it at Walmart ..I went for the flocked tree (without lights ..used my own )and I think it looks perfect with all the ice skates!
 I used 2 different red plaid ribbons for decorating..
 Since I was a figure skater I have always collected ice skate ornaments.. I have so many fun skate ornaments and I love taking them out every year..
 I used a basket I bought at a flea market for 50 cents for 3 of them ..I was using this for a waste can in my laundry room but since I cut the bottom out of it I can't use it for that any more :) I used a vintage wood crate to sit it on to make the tree taller..The base is surrounded by more skates!
Don't you just love the basket on the bottom ?
 It sits in the corner of the dining room and I am loving the look of the flocked tree in there!

Priscilla,
I love your new flocked tree. What size is it if you do not mind me asking? And is the flocking messy? I would love to get a flocked tree! Maybe on clearance at the end of the season......
Your ice skate ornaments looks lovely on it and I especially love your tartan plaid ribbon on this tree! Really sweet!!

Hugs,
Deb

This is one of my favorite trees you share each year. I love it and the changes you did this year. I also adore that santa in the one horse open sleigh! You have such good stuff Priscilla!

Hi, I just wanted to tell you how much I love your skate tree. I too was a figure skater. My first pro gave me a "Santa on skates" ornament when I was 12 and I have collected ever since. I have one tree that is just skates or skaters too!
