Mom's Wishlist last updated on 12/22/04

♥ - indicates item that Mom specified

♫ - indicates a good idea from Johanna

General items not pictures below: bead kit

Dad: Mom specifically keeps telling me to tell you about K.Hall Designs. She would like the eau de parfums, room sprays, candles, lotions, but NOT the linen sprays. She thinks it would be neat to have a matching perfume, candle, and room spray. She likes these varieties: fig, cypress & cassis, bulgarian rose, vanilla, milk, linden, champagne, orange amber, but NOT lavender or patchouli or lemongrass. Also, the bulgarian rose or lavender chocolate. (I put the ones she has mentioned the most in bold.)

Beading kit

Mom has mentioned an interest in making jewelry from beads. I'm really not sure what to say on this one. Most kits I've seen are pretty cheesy. The best thing might be to go up to the bead store in the strip near The Bears Den and ask them what they'd recommend.
