Holiday Ice Skates

I started skating when I was very young.
All through elementary school and high school I went skating
on weekends with my friends.  I loved everything about it ~ the
crisp cold air, cute little skating skirts, hot chocolate by the fire
in the clubhouse.

I made this little ice skating ornament for the tree with pink laces
and a pink pom pom.

I have not skated for a while, but am hoping that there will be a
new pair of skates for me under the Christmas tree this year.  And 
tonight I will be watching The Bishop's Wife staring Cary Grant,
Loretta Young and David Niven.  I love the skating scene in that movie!

Have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to visit ~

Bentley ~ maybe I could put you in a little puppy carrier and take you
skating with me.

  1. How sweet these are. Bentley would love to go skating too...I have a friend who ice skates.

  2. Hi Susan and Bentley! I tried skating as a kid but just kept landing on my butt! I love your cute ornament though. Thanks for the reminder about the movie. I have never seen this early version. xo

  3. What a sweet ornament! I love the ice cube snowman too! We don't have many places to ice skate in Alabama but I do enjoy watching it on tv. I'm going to see if Netflix has The Bishop's Wife, I've never seen it before. Thanks! :)

  5. Happy Pink Saturday, Susan and Bentley! I love your little skate! I used to love to skate too and we always had bon fires on the ice. It was lovely. I haven't skated in years either. Love that old movie! Have a wonderful weekend.

    Christmas blessings,

  6. I have tried ice skating a few times when I was young but I wasn't any good at it. Still I love to watch ice skating! hugs, Linda

  7. Your ornament is just adorable! Max and I will cross our fingers (and paws) that Santa will be good to you ;0)

  8. You ice skate ornament is sooo cute. I used to roller skate, but never tried ice.

  9. What a sweet ornament...I love it! I've written down that movie that you mentioned....I've not seen it but love the "oldies" so I'm making a list!

    I hope you and your family have a lovely Christmas! I'm hosting my weekly Homemaking Link-up Weekend and would love to have you come join if you'd like!

    HaPpY pInK sAtUrDaY!

  10. Susan ~ I just love this little ornament. How sweet it is. Hope Santa put those Skates under the tree for you at Christmas and I hope Sants puts a little sled on skates for Bentley. You could pull him behind you ;-)

  11. I so love your skating post! love skating too, the ornament is too cool- it even looks like it is melting so real!


  12. Love the Skate! Happy Pink Saturday. ~Marti

  13. i've only ice skated (sort of) once in my life. It wasn't inside at a nice smooth "gambonied" skating rink. Nope it was a small pond on my uncle's property in the country. It was NOT smooth until you got to the middle....there were twigs stuck in the ice and some rocks (mostly around the edges. I couldn't stay up long enough to get to the middle. After about my fifth fall within the first 15 minutes, I went back to the house and helped my aunt make hot chocolate! Never tried it again!

    I do love "The Bishop's Wife" (the original Grant/Young/Niven one.) It's one of my favorite Christmas movies. A definite must for the season!

  14. How cute! A local church is putting on The Bishop's Wife this weekend. Should be fun! Happy PS!

  15. What a delight to see these lovely decors.!

    Pink at my page, please come and see. Have a wonderful holiday from my family to yours!

  16. Lovely! Cute Skate! Happy Pink Saturday!! Winona

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and Bentley and your family xx jeanetteann

  18. What a neat way to remember a Christmas Time Memory...cute skate ornament! Thanks for sharing. Happy Pink Saturday and Merry Christmas.

  19. What an awesome ornament. I have a pond across the street and I would love to sit in the window and watch my daughter learn to twirl around on her skates and try to do jumps. Thank you for bringing that memory back.
    Merry Christmas

  20. Hi Susan and Bentley,
    Oh goodness - the little ice skates are adorable. I hope that you get a pair under your tree.
    Wishing you and your family all the Joy, the Hope and the Wonder of Christmas.
    Bentley sends a tail way to Bentley.

  21. I'm smitten your skate ornament. I just might need to do something with that theme for my girls this year. My husband and I met ice skating in college in 1988. Ice skating is very dear to my heart.

    Christmas hugs!

  22. Adorable..
    HPS..I miss everyone....Thank you for sharing this Season.
    Happy Holidays~
