One of my most treasured finds is a vintage pair of ice skates. I spotted them in an antique shop several years ago and had to have them! 😍
I have this romantic idea of skating in New York's Central Park, in the crisp winter air, with the city skyline in the background... ❤️
I got thinking about the history of ice skating and discovered that it was invented in northern Europe around five thousand years ago. It's the oldest form of human-powered transport (move over Fred Flinstone and his caveman car!) and helped people travel more widely during frozen winters.
Aren't the Scandinavians a clever and stylish bunch?!
