How clever you are! I loved your "3 Element ATC". So glad you recycle & repurpose--me, too. My husband always remarks on the "junk" I keep, but I love the "free" stuff. My daughter & her family just relocated to Heath, TX, in August. Hoping to visit them this spring. Hope to swap with you sometime in the future!

MissPaula on Nov 25, 2017:
