Good morning all,  yet again yesterday was not that nice a day here.  That cold in the afternoon I needed to put on a thicker cardigan, I did think that just maybe just we would get some warmer weather.   I can see the summer clothes going away and the winter woolies being back out.

Today I have a basket to show you.   This was an order from the department that Anna and Beth's  mummy is part of and is for a member who is leaving after 15 years to go to a new job.   She is a single mum who puts her children and her home before herself, so I was asked to do a basket of products that she wouldn't dream of spending money on, she is also receiving a very generous amount in gift vouchers that  she can only spend on herself too.

I decided to do hair products, as I think if your hair feels good you do to.  The Wicker Basket has Charles Worthington  Salon at Home range of  Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Booster Mouse.  I have also put a bigger than a normal hand towel in dark plum, a fuchsia pink flannel and a cream one just to add a bit of colour ( the fuchsia pink looks red unfortunately).   Wrapped it in cling then I have tied three lengths of organza ribbon in silver  and a pinky purple colour round it and popped a purple rose hair clip in to the bow.

So here's hoping I have chosen the right kind of things.  I just feel that she wouldn't spend her money on these products as they are expensive when you are watching the pennies. - well I know that's me any way.   I will have to wait on the feed back from the department on Monday.  I can always do another if not.

That's it for today.  Thank you once again for all your lovely comments.

  5. Hi Hazel,
    playing catch up. I love this basket. It is just what I would want. I don't think you can beat good hair products. It's what I always like to spend my pennies on. She is going to be sooooo thrilled with it.
