Christmas Brooch of the Day-Day Fifteen

Anyone for sledding? I had a sled just like this as a child and let me tell you-it was heavy! You kids today have no idea how good you have it with lightweight plastic sleds. Try pulling all that wood and steel up a hill over and over. I remember it being a very special purchase as sleds were expensive-the good ones anyway. It did hold up to a lot of use and abuse, but damn, that thing was a pain to lug.

I don't think this brooch is that old, but the silver plate could use a polishing.

Not strictly being a Christmas brooch, this is one of my favourites so far. It's certainly very unusual! xxx

I never had a wooden sled but you see some Raj era relics at places the British used to frequent in the Himalayas. Gorgeous & unique brooch!

this remembers me on my own childhood in the snowy mountains...... unusual for a brooch but lovely. once i had a silver brooch depicting two skis which i loved much - sadly lost them somewhere in silesia.

Thnk you-I am never sure how to wear it (lengthwise?) but it is a fun piece.

@Bibi
You'd need to be pretty badass to go sledding in the mountains.

@Beate
I know that feeling losing brooches!
