  6. WOWZERS!!!!! Loving both ideas! I have a pair of skates from high school at my mom's house that she keeps telling me to get out. Now I have a reason too!

  7. Wow, what beautiful projects. And Holy Moly Patti...those skates are awesome. And the story of your mammy and the skates is such a great story to tell your kids too. My wee mammy is always reminding my much younger siblings that when we (Me and my brother)were young, didnt have expensive toys and the best designer clothes and that it was a big struggle to put food on the table as it was just us two and my mammy. So she likes to remind my 3 other siblings that they should appreciate everything they have and get. But boy does it make me feel old, lol! My youngest brother is 11 years old so there is 21 years between me and him! Lee x
