Good morning.   Thank you for all your birthday wishes for Charlie.  Yes it's seems he's not the only Man to do what he did.   He enjoyed his birthday, a big one next year, so he better behave between now and then.

I am just showing you that you don't need a fancy basket or gift bag to make things like some lovely hair products into a nice looking gift.  Yes a length of cellophane or cling as I call it can do that.

All I have done here is cut a length of cellophane places a cup coaster in middle placed the products in the middle gathered up the cello and tied with two lengths of organzas ribbon.  Cost to wrap - pennies really.

Thank you all for your wonderful support and lovely comments this past year.  I wish you all a

                                     MERRY CHRSTMAS & A WONDERFUL NEW YEAR

  12. Hazel, wish I could share the dolphins with you. We saw some again today. But it's not always sunshine & dolpins. This evening we had rather a heavy thunder & rain storm. Very dark. Wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas once again, and thank you for all your visits & sweet comments over the past year. And send my wish that 2015 will be a banner year for you & your hubby. Hope the weather will be pleasant for your day. Hugs
