    I'm showing my age, everything old is new again. We did stuff like this when I was growing up. Enjoy.

      No it’s not new Judy but to the younger generations it is lol , fashion always comes back around with just a hint of something different to make it new again. My 21 yr old is wearing clothes that I have in a box of memories that I actually had to go check they were still there cause I thought she took them lol she wasn’t happy she had bought the dress when I had it already it was from grade 8 /9 40yrs old lol
