VTT - SKI BOOT AND MATCHES


Isn't this new VTT logo beautiful? I'll miss the Cake Lady - I had fun dressing her up for the holidays (maybe that's why Suzanne changed it - LOL!) - may she rest in peace!

Now . . . one little item this week. This cute little ski boot was a gift from Mister a few years ago, from an antique shop. It's about 3" long and tall (7.5cm). It's mostly made of leather and has a souvenir sticker that says Wien, which is German for Vienna (Austria), and an old box of matches in it.

The skis are modern, just in the photo for atmosphere! Have a super VTT week!

This is a very interesting item, would be so cute hanging on the Christmas tree. but it also made a perfect match holder for the coffee table back when folks used matches to light candles or even to light a cigarette.
Thanks for sharing

Oh My Gosh Sue...
Sweetie that is just the cutest little thing I have ever seen. I didn't even know they made a souvenior ski boot. What a precious thing to have and the matches and all. Mister did a great buy, as you have something so unique. Leather even.

Thanks for sharing today. I so love it. Country hugs sweetie, Sherry
