Today, Day Three of the Twelve Days of Tree Ornaments, we have a silver skate charm.

About ten years ago I decided I wanted to learn how to ice skate. So, I took a class and then I took private lessons. I loved bundling up in vintage sweaters, pulling on my bright white new skates and learning how to glide across the ice. Well, it was more learning how to fall; the gliding was hard to come by.

At the time, a friend of mine from work was collecting antique silver charms. We had the love of antique jewelry in common and we often shared our latest finds. I asked her to keep an eye out for a skate charm for me and she said, “Or I could just give you the one I have.” A few days later she came to my office with a box containing a silver skate charm. I love the detailing and the bottom opens! It’s a nice addition to my tree and it holds pleasant memories of my skating adventures and my friend from work.

Tomorrow is another day, another Tree Ornament. Tune in.
