After some thought I decided to post this addition to the original  post as seen below. I like 'pretty'. I felt I should point out that I love beautiful things! When receiving gifts the thrill for me is the thought. And yes I still love beautiful things! But my most prized will always be Love Family and the simple things in life.

I have spent a WHOLE amount of time on the internet lately - all in the name of research you understand. Here I have featured some treasures from some of my favourite shopping sites.
I have stumbled upon beautiful 'things' and have added them to my wishlist, THINGS I want.  Take a look. Use the links. You may discover something you would also love. Forward the link to your man or...leave the link open on your laptop so your man can take a peek. You never know he may surprise you with a little something similar from the wishlist seeing as its gonna be 'that time of the year' soonish. I also have great ideas for fabulous gifts to give my nearest and dearest people. Here I have featured inspiration which I shall use as examples to find similar to give pretty gifts I know people I love will enjoy.
