    How difficult is it to bend the skewers?

      I didn’t bend the skewers but if you wanted to bend them you could pretty easy. The spoon was easy to bend.

    have you a way to get rid of woodlice ,mice and silver fish please

      Hi Martha, for mice go around the outside of your home and make sure everything is sealed up - seal with sos pads and silicone in holes. Mice will eat through the dry wall to get inside homes as well, so if you have an attached garage it is wise to attach a rubber baseboard along the bottom of the dry wall to prevent them from getting in. Here is more info... Mice, Silverfish, Woodlice

    Sorry I’m a lover of old dishes! A friend thought she was doing me a favor by glueing a Lefton cup and saucer to a depression glass plate! I liked to died! Can you safely undo this craft? Will a hairdryer loosen the glue?

    Not so much a question as an 💡 idea. If you bend the top of the skewer down and you can sit the “flower” on it then stick it in the ground or pot and use as a bird feeder! Thank You 🙏🏽 Love Your Ideas❤️
