Gifts - The Little Gifts Count





Pretty Statements






It is the small gifts that matter the most.   The little things which shout joy and bring forth spring like memories of apple pie, sunshine, lemonade and of course thoughtfulness.  Yes, a shiny blue teacup, flower earrings, a pair of brightly hued sunglasses or a dash of cherry red lipstick changes the day from dreary to cheery.   The small things in Spring 2017 become center stage adding a sense of hope, delight and happiness to come. 



Hair Color Moments






I.  The Happiness Hair Holder:  Spring colors in beautiful hues are exceptional for adding a bright spot of cheerful sunshine to a pony.   Additionally fall back on a standard braided headband in black for a beautiful hair fix.
