When I was a kid, one of my favourite things to do
at Christmas was set up the ice scene.
I loved placing the skaters on the pond
(a pie tin covered in foil).
And decided where to put the skiers and sledders.
A few pieces have been added over the years,
but most of it is pure '50's vintage, including several
bottle brush and candle Christmas trees.
There's something magical about seeing it
and realizing that I've been putting it up
every holiday season for over 55 years.
Keeping a precious Christmas memory alive.
