    I like your ideas
    I have an old sled I’m working on right now + an old set of kids skis , do you have any ideas how to combine those into one display ?
    Thanks

    Graham

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Graham! I have another post on how to refresh and decorate with vintage skis, also, https://lorabloomquist.comhow-to-refresh-and-style-vintage-skis/ If you want to combine them, you could put the skis in an “X” behind the sled. Or you could hang them parallel up and down next to the sled (both vertical). If you have a fireplace in your home, you could put them on either side. Lots of possibilities! Hope that helps!

  2. These are all so pretty and creative! I don’t think I can even pick a favorite…but now I want a vintage sled to decorate! Thanks for linking up to Best of the Weekend last week. Your post was one of my features! Be sure to stop by this week to see the other features and link up any other projects you want to share. Enjoy your weekend!

      Thanks for the feature, Shelley! I’ve got 4 sleds, so I get to enjoy quite a few different looks. They’re quite plentiful in my snowy state, yet they usually show their earned fun-time. I enjoy them in and out all winter (which seems to be getting longer).

  3. Love all of these options. Thanks for sharing at To Grandma’s House We Go DIY, Crafts, Recipes and More Link party. I pinned this! Hope to have you join us again this week.

      Thanks, Larissa! And thanks for sharing, too:)

    2. Beautiful decor! Kind of hard to find snow sleds in the deep South, though! I guess I need to recruit some northern friends to keep a look out for me and ship a sled! to me!

      1. Lora Bloomquist says:

        Great idea, Gail! Good luck:)

    I love vintage sleds! All of these are darling!! I had 3, but gave two to others. My last one is in my entry this year. I’ve added a metal bow to it, but it could use a little more sprucing up. 🙂
    hugs,
    Jann

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Jann! I’m sure you’ll make it look adorable, especially if it sits next to that adorable shed you have!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      They’re so much fun to decorate, Angie, and you can put them anywhere!

  9. I am swooning at all the sleds!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Karin! I sold so many through the years; these babies are staying with me!

  10. What cute ideas! Numbers 4 and 10 are my favorites. Now I just need to find a vintage sled.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks for your vote, Carol! Good luck finding one!

  11. What a wonderful collection of ideas! I love every one of them and there’s no way I can pick a favorite. Your snow covered lawn and woodpile make the perfect backdrop for your pictures.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Paula! I was so excited when I realized my boys were stacking a perfect backdrop for some winter pics;)

  12. You are blowing my mind right now, Lora! I love all of these ideas so much I would not even be able to pick a favorite because they are all that good. I seriously adore how creative you are and how you elevate ordinary objects into something extraordinary. It’s all just gorgeous. Love, love, love! Hugs, CoCo

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks so much, CoCo!I do believe anything can be prettied up and made beautiful with a little creativity! Fun hopping with you again!

    1. Thanks for sharing your beautiful sleds at Vintage Charm, Lora!

      1. Lora Bloomquist says:

        My pleasure, Cecilia!

  14. I do have an old sled which is strange since I live in Florida. I didn’t get it out this year but after seeing all of these wonderful ideas maybe I should. BTW I bought the sled at Good Will. I wish I knew the story behind it.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Michelle! We just got a couple inches, which was perfect for pictures:)

  15. I adore each and every look Lora. I need to be more creative. I just prop mine up – boring! Merry Christmas!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      You are creative, Cindy! But I do actually love them in their purist state, too!

  16. Hi Lora! Your sled decor is absolutely stunning! I love each and every one of them and I wouldn’t be able to choose a favorite. You’ve given me so many ideas that I am so getting a sled to decorate next year! So happy to be hopping with you!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Glad you got inspired, Michelle! Good luck finding one in your sunny state!

  17. Marlene Stephenson says:

    Wonderful ideas and yes i have a big and small sled and now all kinds of ideas, thank you, i truly do not know how someone can be so talented.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m so glad you have a couple to decorate, Marlene! You’ll have to let me know what you come up with! Thanks for your sweet words and faithfully following all my creative adventures!

  18. Girl this is your magazine feature post!!! WOWZA!
    Did you take all of these shots last winter or have you already had lots of snow? This photos are amazing. You should make a set of note cards with all these sleds. Be still my vintage-winter loving heart!

    Thank you so much for hopping with us. Merry Christmas friend!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      We got a good couple inches just in time, Amber! And my wonderful boys will never know how happy I was when they decided to stack the tree wood in such a nice photo backdrop;) I have been thinking about note card downloads in my future, so funny you mentioned that;) I’ll tag the mags when I IG it all!Thanks for the compliments, friend! Enjoy the Christmas season!

  19. Your sleds are adorable. I’d love to have one but they are a rarity in Texas! So pretty.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Katie! I’m sure they’d need to be a transplant there;)

  20. Lora I would luv for you to share this with us at Wall to Wall DIY Wednesday that runs wed-Monday’s. Pinned and I shared on IG. I luv this?

  22. Thank you so much for sharing all those pretty inspirational ways to decorate a sleigh. I am in love with all of them. Hope you and your sweet family have a Happy Holiday!

  23. Lora! I absolutely LOVE this!!! I have a vintage sled that I decorate the same way every year. You have given me soooo much inspiration! Now I want to completely change it up, but all of your ideas are so beautiful that I don’t know which one to go with. Thanks so much for sharing! Happy Holidays!!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Wonderful, Heather! I’m sure whatever you come up with will be amazing! Glad it inspired you! If you had (4!) sleds like I do, you could do a little of each;)
