In granddaughter Tiffany's younger years, she took ice skating lessons, and Jerry and I used to go watch her skate at the indoor rink on Saturdays where she learned to be a very good skater.
Now fast forward to this past September when my daughter, Lori, downsized her residence after becoming an empty-nester. On moving day, she had a bag of the kids things they weren't keeping to drop off at Salvation Army. Inside the bag were two pairs of Tiffany's ice skates. Well... I couldn't let those get away, and with Lori's permission retrieved them from the bag.
Yesterday I went to the craft store and purchased $7.75 worth of materials to make a wintry arrangement in one of the skates to hang on our front door. I was quite pleased with the results, and will be reminded of Tiffany every time I use the front door.
I need to do some photo retakes when the sun is in the opposite direction so there aren't reflections on the glass, but these will suffice for now.
I wish little feet still filled those skates, but time marches on! Here's a picture of Lori and her three children on Christmas Day 2015. They're all grown up now, and their childhood is just a pleasant memory.
