Decorating with vintage water skis!


Last week, Chris took two of the vintage wooden water skis that he found in a barn at a recent estate sale and made a shelf to show-off a few special fishing-related collections.

 Several of the treasures that you see here, were originally in my grandfather's basement.

 They had been taking up residence in Chris's downstairs man-cave.

 I'm so glad to have a special place to feature them at the a-frame.
I hope you found some special treasures of your own this weekend. 
Updating Blogger via  my smart phone is driving me nuts.  You "may" have seen this post and then I took it back down until I was back home again from the cottage.  I can't believe it's Monday already. 
XOXO

We found a great set of vintage water skis and have been thinking about what to do with them. Since we want to resell them I really like this idea.

AWESOME shelves! Love everything on them too. It looks like you have always lived there and been collecting for years. It must be hard to get through the week, just waiting to get back to your cottage!
