Ready For Snow/ Ruby Tuesday



Seen outside an antiques and collectibles store, this sled is ready for snow, but I'm not...not quite yet. The Greater Toronto Area is breaking a record held since the 1930s 1847 for no snow in November. Whoohoo!



Seeing red? Why not join in the Ruby Tuesday fun, by visiting MaryT at http://workofthepoet.blogspot.com/

Nice red runners on that sled, and it looks like there is another sled by its side. Good shot!

Manang Kim said...

It's been very warm here, EG! Yesterday it 50 degrees F and beautifully sunny! I love it! I love your RT shot! Thanks for participating! :)

Annie said...

Wow, what memories. I had a sled like that once upon a time and long, long ago.

Lots of rain here and the weather is not cold enough for snow. Your shot is once again quite stunning.

eden said...

Great shot and I love the red runners.

Felisol said...

A rare example of an old sled standing next to its mother. The red runners, wow, how did they think of that?

That's an oldie, but goodie! I like the fact it's got a place to put your arms when you're careening down a hill!

Beautiful photo, EG!

We haven't had any snow here yet, either! ;-)

I love it. Keep breaking those records I say. I am not ready for snow but then again all we have gotten here since October is RAIN and more rain. It can get very depressing--so gray all the time. Not to mention cold and wet. I sound like I am whining--oops I am. But I am smiling---through my tears. Hahaha!!

Love that little sleigh. MB

Robin said...

Great photo. I had a sled like that when I was a child.

Dianne said...

beautiful photo
it has both a vintage and modern feel to it
I'm hoping for no snow as well
or the snow that falls and then melts, that's good snow

Ann said...

Looks like some one's dad had put on a new coat of paint.

Has it snow yet?

May I tell you my first snow experience? I thought some one had put white little pellets of fertiliser on the base of the trees.

Ralph said...

This sled is nice! Instead of the aerodynamic lie-down pose, the rider can look and feel a bit more dignified sitting up, arms resting quite nicely. The kids would not like this sled though...

see you there! said...

If I had that sled I might even learn to like snow.

how neat what a great shot to welcome the winter season with!

Carolyn Ford said...

What a cute sled! And, the red runners...stunning! I really like this one!

Leora said...

Oh, I have a sled like that in my garage! We tried it once in one of our mild NJ snows. The plastic new-fangled thingies worked better. Sigh.

Michelle said...

Catching up on your shots. I love the little antique sled. It is so sweet.

That bird on the M is too funny! You know he is just waiting to swoop down and get something greasy.

Becky and Gary said...

I love old antique sleds, and I can just imagine how much fun the kids used to have on this one.
It's snowing here, but only lightly covering the ground. Last year at this time we had 54" already.

November is coming to an end, so the snow will be making an appearance soon?

Martha in PA said...

What a great old sled. I saw something similar in VA last weekend and wanted so badly to bring it home...

beautiful in a rustic way.

Grace and Bradley said...

Marvelous shot of the sled. Well, seems the global warming is upon Canada. I remember the cold day in Boston, hope your good weather last.

Nukke said...

So beautiful old thing !! And was so useful in old days. The climate has changed so. We have so little snow here in Finland, onlu raining all the time :(
ps. my cat is in my Ruby pic !!!!

Hootin' Anni said...

Auntie E said...

Love it! I'm ready to sled side in to snow. happy RT

N said...

lol, I think you are missing a piece. The horse can't pull it without it. I think it's funny!

Stephanie V said...

Great find! My old sled had a wooden steering bar but I still had to lie down. This would have been very ladylike.

Patti said...

The old-fashioned sled must have carried a lot of people on fun rides. I'll pass, though. ;-)

Nice find, EG!

I'm not ready for any snow, either.

Happy Ruby Tuesday ~
