T.P.  Necessity or luxury?  If you gotta have it...make it look purdy!
Have you taken the TIME to appreciate the people and things around you?
Stay warm this holiday season...and share some warmth with those you love.
Take an evening (or afternoon) to sit down and watch a good Christmas flick with your kids.
Give an old friend a call...reminisce about good times youve had together.

With the holiday season upon us, now is the time to reflect on the wondrous people and things around us that make our lives so full.

Only you could make toilet paper look fabulous, my friend! At first glance, it appears to be a nice fat candle. :) LOVE it!

And I agree with the others, great post. :)

Happy Holidays!

SweetMelissa writes: Thanks, Sue, for the feature! I started this post as a group of comical gift giving suggestions...but once I started (other than the T.P.) I decided to put a different perspective on some of the common things we have...good CAN be done even with some of the luxury items.

Happy Holidays!
