Bouquet

“Absolutely loved my bouquet, was so sentimental, something I’ll treasure forever. She had so many ideas to personalise it and we had the boutonnieres which were not only beautiful with the suits but had a very personal touch for my husband and beautiful keepsakes for both our mums. Julie is so easy to work with and has so many ideas to incorporate all aspects from ways to remember our loved ones and my personal taste. Would highly recommend Julie at Bouquet~licious. Amazing!”

Maria Gillen, Donegal, April 2017


Thank you so much for my amazing bouquet Julie! Everyone was fascinated by it as not many had seen anything like it before, guests were passing it round tables at dinner having a good look at it. It is such a special piece and I will treasure it forever! The scroll was such a beautiful touch as well!

Roisin Bríd, England, April 2017


 

Julie is a pleasure to work with! From the beginning she listened to everything I wanted and what she gave me was that and so much more. My bouquet was amazing and so so meaningful. It is full of mementos from my mum, sisters and granny that Julie used to create different parts of the bouquet. It was really special to sit with my mum and granny and look at all their old jewellery and hear stories about where it came from and who gave it to them. This is something that I never would have done otherwise! In other areas are old pieces of jewellery (broken watch, odd earrings etc) of my own that were presents from my husband and friends that I no longer wear or were broken but that I’d could never throw away. This is such a fabulous way to keep them forever. Along with my bouquet she made a beautiful boutinerre for my husband and two beautiful brooches for our mums. These were designed after she had seen pictures of their outfits and so were totally customised to them for the day. Julie was also really easy to get in contact with, very reasonably priced for the incredible amount of work that she puts in and when I changed my mind about certain things she was very adaptable. I couldn’t recommend her more if you are thinking about a brooch bouquet or custom made boutinerres or brooches.

Michelle Doherty, Donegal, March 2017


A big thank you to Julie for creating an absolutely amazing bouquet for our wedding.
I met Julie in her house and she showed me a couple of samples. Once I explained to her what I wanted, she reassured me that she would do exactly what I wanted and she did.
When making my bouquet she sent photos of the work in progress which was nice as I could see how beautiful it was and it also heightened the excitement to receive the finished product.
The amount of compliments we received for my bouquet was unbelievable.
I can’t thank Julie enough for my lovely bouquet. I would definetly recommend Julie to anyone. Such a lovely person and also so talented.

I have just received my “Mounted Memories” from Julie.
What an extremely talented lady she is.
I couldn’t be happier with the result, the frame has all of my most sentimental pieces of jewellery displayed in the most beautiful way.
Even from the beginning Julie sat down and went through every piece of jewellery to get a feel for each piece and what it meant to me.
I couldn’t recommend her and the service she provides highly enough.
She has created something that will stay in my family forever.
Thanks Julie its amazing.

A big thank you to Julie for creating absolutely amazing bouquets and boutonnières for our wedding.
Julie was very accommodating as I was very late in organising our bouquets but that was not an issue for Julie.
Julie listened to what we wanted and incorporated all our own items of jewellery and brooches which meant a lot to everyone involved in the wedding.
The amount of compliments we received for my bouquet and Carla’s mini bouquet was unbelievable even security and customs at Lisbon airport stopped us to get pictures for their partners
The pieces Julie created for both mothers complimented their outfits
I can’t thank Julie enough for all the hard work and thought she put into creating our bouquets and boutonnières they really added the personal touch we were looking for in our wedding

On meeting Julie for the first time at a wedding fair I just knew this was the lady to make me something special for my big day! � Julie was so professional and just got exactly what I wanted. So later we met at Julie’s house to discuss my colours and for her to get a feeling of what I wanted. I was in total awe upon seeing her amazing creations and couldn’t wait to have my own. Throughout the making process nothing was a bother for Julie if I wanted to add more or take out anything she was so helpful so to say that I was so excited when she mailed me to say my bits were ready was an understatement – I just couldn’t wait! � Julie totally outdone all of my expectations – I totally fell in love with everything I had received from her even the presentation was unbelievable and such a great little extra touch � my bouquet is something so close to my heart with all my sentimental bits and memories all wrapped up inside where I will keep and treasure in our home for everyone to admire and who knows maybe even one day pass it onto a daughter I might be so lucky to have. Lastly, I just want to say a big Thank you Julie so much from the bottom of my heart!! � I will send on some pics at a later stage whe I receive them from Jay! I would definitely recommend this lady high up and low down to everyone!!! Xxxx

They were absolutely amazing and we all got so many compliments on the day. The wand did it’s job and kept our fabulous flower girl Yasmin entertained. She loved it.

Michelle McLaughlin, Donegal 2016


Thank you so much for my stunning bouquet, bridesmaid and the boutonnières, it was all everything I wanted and more. You were brilliant to work with from start to finish nothing was ever a problem, so glad we put the keepsakes in it, as we got married in New York you would think they have seen it all over there but the amount of people that stopped me on the street to look at it and to tell me how beautiful it is was unbelievable, and the little surprise scroll really did bring a tear to my eye brought loads of memories back lovely idea. You are truly wonderful at your job and I will be highly recommending you to other brides xx

Emma Sheridan, Cavan 2016

Hey Julie I have just had two mins to send a massive thanks to you, for my beautiful bouquet you turn all my treasured items into a beautiful bouquet everyone comment on how amazing it was.. Thank you again x

Ann-Marie Gibbons, Australia, July 2016


A massive thanks to Julie for my very beautiful bouquet. My husband’s parents have both passed away and I wanted something special, personal and unique to have them with us on our wedding day. I was organising our wedding from Canada and Julie made the whole process so easy. I met with her when I was home to talk about styles and decided on what I would like. I showed her photos of my dress and gave her a range of pieces from my mum, my own pieces and my husband’s mother and also a cufflink that belonged to his father. I was 100% confident in Julie’s work. I asked her to put it together as she saw best and I was thrilled to pieces when I got the photos. I even cried add did my sister in law. It was even better when I picked it up. Everyone loved my bouquet and the sentimental pieces that made it so special. So many people stood around as I pointed out earrings, rings, brooches etc and there were many tears shed!

Julie made my husband a button hole with his dad’s cufflink and it was beautiful. It meant so much to him to wear it on our wedding day.

Julie you helped make our wedding day very special. Thank you so much for everything including the lovely scroll you included with the box!

Fionnuala McElhinney, Canada/Donegal, July 2016


Thank you so much Julie for my stunning bouquet I absolutely love it. Your very talented and a pleasure to deal with. Everybody at the wedding complimented my beautiful keepsake so thanks again for ur hard work I would definitely recommend you to any future brides xxx

Thank you so much for my beautiful bouquets Julie. everyone was in awe of them. They even made a full page in my wedding album. Even though my wedding was brought considerably forward and left you with only five weeks! to design and make them, you where fantastic about it and they still where made to the highest standard! I loved them and they will be a part of my day I get to treasure forever.

Lesley McCooey, Derry, September 2015


“Loved all my bouquets and pins for the men and also both mothers. Has to be one of the best business around so friendly and able to do anything you need to make your big days finishing touches perfect. I was able to get through my big day without a few amazing people not being with me anymore thanks to being able to have there pieces incorporated into my bouquet. Thank-you Julie for all the amazing work you did, you made my day so special.”

Simone McLaughlin, Limavady, August 2015


My plan was to make my own bouquet, so when I went to Julie I didn’t have much time left until my wedding. Nothing was a bother for Julie, she sat and listened to my ideas, colours etc and she had my fantastic bouquet finished within a few weeks of our first meeting. Julie was so easy to talk to and my finished bouquet was nicer than I could have ever imagined! Thank you so much for everything Julie x

Cathy McColgan, Donegal, July 2015

Collette Donegan, Mayo, June 2015


“I placed my order for a brooch bouquet for my wedding from Bouquet-licious. I worked with Julie on my order (via email and phone, as we didn’t actually meet), she was very friendly, helpful and noted everything I wanted. She made the whole process easy and straight forward. When I got the final product, it was better than I had ever imagined. I was very pleased with the whole process and final product.”

Deborah Leonard, Carrick-on Shannon, May 2015


 Julie, thank you so much for my gorgeous bouquet and Michael’s boutonniere. I loved the process from you putting your creative touch to the sentimental pieces we added and to seeing the final results. I absolutely loved the presentation and beautiful scroll interpreting our story. Michael’s boutonniere is so special to him because he used his late Mother’s buttons as a keepsake. My bouquet holds memories from my grandparents and I love it. We have them forever and are pride of place in our home. I’m often asked by brides where I got something so unique and personal to our day. Thank you again, Una and Michael xx

Misha McDaid, Derry, April 2015


The plan was to make my own brooch bouquet until I met Julie at wedding fayre in Derry. I’m deaf but yet I found it really easy to chat with Julie about what I want- I loved the way she understood how important it is that my bouquet is personal. She had a lot of patience while I collected brooches from family and close friends. I was concerned that colours of brooches collected would clash and be too strong together but she took them and softened them with additional brooches. She also took some material of my Grandad’s and used it to cover the base of the bouquet along with photo of him with Angel charm which meant a lot to me as I was very close to him. I couldn’t believe how fabulous the result was- in fact I was so delighted that I took a selfie of us with wedding countdown board! She also made a fabulous buttonaire for my husband using the brooch Grandad used to have on his post office hat and it was perfect- I might be biased but it’s far nicer than any flower would look. I love the way we can keep both bouquet & buttonaire forever and hopefully pass them on with special memories of our big day. I lost my bouquet few times on the day as it was being passed around and plenty girls wanted to take selfies with it! 😉 They said it’s truly something unique and beautiful. Julie also added a special surprise which was a scroll of our very own love story written out like a proper fairytale.

She is such a special and lovely lady with an amazing talent that I wouldn’t hesitate recommending.

Aoife McElhinney, Donegal, January 2015


“I got the most gorgeous bouquet from Julie at bouquet-licious. I met Julie at a wedding fair only 6 weeks before my wedding and her work was truly amazing that I asked her if she could make me a bouquet. Although it was within a real tight timescale, she was more than willing to help. She asked me details of my relationship with my husband such as how we met, how long we’d been together and how he proposed. Julie also asked me to give her some personal items so they could be included in the bouquet, I thought this was such a lovely idea as my mum is no longer with me so it was great to feel like she was with me on my big day. At my wedding it wasn’t just me that loved my bouquet, everybody loved it and asked me where I got it, my friends actually all posed for photos with it. It was just soo different and original. I feel the service I received and the thoughtfulness was way above and beyond what anyone could expect. I cannot recommend Julie and bouquet-licioushighly enough! Truly amazing! “

Debbie McCay, Belfast, November 2014


Thanx so much to julie @bouquet~licious for my stunnin wedding bouquets… such a shame to put such beauty back in a box…

Maria”

Maria Murray, Derry, October 2014


I was so proud of my bouquet on my wedding day it was so perfectly fitted to me, my dress and my wedding x I wanted ivory roses and bling. When I first met with Julie she encouraged my to add some personal touches to the bouquet I explained that I didn’t really have anything to go with my theme as I only wanted new extra bling pieces!!She assured me if i brought pieces that ment something to me or… my family she would try her best to make it work. She explained it was important to try and have something special in my bouquet for me to look back on and keep. In the end I added 3 extra pieces one of which was a green butterfly from my grandmother. I really wanted to remember her in some special way……I never in a million years thought it would have been in my bouquet (specially with my plans of bling) the green stood out so beautifully and matched in so well. My bouquet was truly made just for me I LOVE IT x Thank you so much Julie x

Fallon McShea, Mayo, September 2014


“A big thank you to Julie at Bouquet-licious for my beautiful bridal bouquet. It was absolutely amazing and got so many compliments on the day with numerous people interested in where I got it. The bouquet is something that can be treasured forever with various sentimental pieces in it. What an amazing talent you have Julie and you are a pleasure to work with. The scroll that you gave me with my bouquet was so beautiful and is a lovely idea. Thank you so much x Alison”

Alison Cosgrave Conneely, Westport, Mayo, August 2014


Another lovely testimonial…delighted when I receive them and know I have contributed to someone’s special day, even in a little way:)Angeline incorporated lovely pieces of sentiment in her bouquet, reminding her of those important people in her life, on her wedding day.

“Just a wee message for Julie to say thank you so much for my bouquet, I loved it. I found Julie so easy to work with from start to finish, she knew exactly what I wanted and having pieces from my mum and bridesmaid made it even more special for me. I would highly recommend Julie to any brides out there thinking of getting a Brooch Bouquet. xx”

Angeline Toner, Letterkenny, August 2014


“Thank you soooo soooo much Julie for creating my beautiful bridal bouquet.

I know I gave you a hard task with all the different pieces I wanted included but you took everything I said into consideration & the result truly exceeded my expectations. You took lots of time to listen to what I wanted & you were so lovely to talk to….As I said in my text…You are a Lady! I also loved the little extras you added…the scroll had me & my family in tears, so touching. I had so many compliments about my bouquet on our wedding day & it meant alot to me to be able to hold heirlooms & objects of sentiment close to me on what was one of the best days of my life Lots of Love Marcella x”

Marcella Hynes, Dromore West, Mayo, August 2014


Thank you so very much Julie for the simply beautiful bouquet for my wedding on August 7th. I can’t explain how much detail is in this piece and the photos do show it well but not in all it’s glory. Julie met with me and took great interest in my story,how we met,when we got engaged,what our lives are about,our hobbies and our passions in life. The bouquet was everything I wanted and more. I will treasure it forever,not to mention the presentation case it came in and the beautiful scroll inside with our story so far. I can’t thank you enough Julie. It made our day even more special. You are a gorgeous person inside and out and it’s been my pleasure to be lucky enough to have met you and received one of your one off bespoke pieces. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Tracey Cullinane, Mayo, August 2014


Hi Julie,

I was fortunate enough to find Bouquet-licious in my locality, and it was the best find ever! I only had to meet with Julie once and she knew instantly what I wanted my bouquet to look like; but the finished product took my breath away! The DETAIL was amazing, and she incorporated the vintage feel I wanted to perfection – beautiful lace, pearls and diamanté- it’s an heirloom now and the presentation box she used was perfect!! Is it wrong that I still parade around with it?!… 😉

Clár Uí Chinnéide, Mayo, Ireland, June 2014


“Julie, Words cannot describe how beautiful my bouquet is. From the moment I met you, I knew it would be perfect. We met at your house and we discussed what I would like, colours, textures, brooches and flowers. My nanna’s brooch I gave to you which you beautifully incorporated into my bouquet, this meant I had a little bit of nanna with me on my special day. When I collected my bouquet, tears rolled down my face at its beauty. I had seen the photos but to see it for real and hold it was amazing. I showed it to my little sister before the wedding as I just simply had to show someone! Even my sister cried at the sheer beauty of the bouquet. The presentation box and scroll we’re beautiful touches and I will cherish them. On the day, everyone commented on the bouquet, even some of the men! It became a real talking point and my dad was really touched that nanna’s brooch was in the centre of the bouquet. It has now taken centre stage in my sitting room where I can admire it all the time . I can’t wait to email you the photos the photographer took of it. From the bottom of my heart thank you.  

Katie Wright (Di Lucia), Castlebar, Mayo, June 2014


Hi Julie,

Just a quick note to say thank you very much for the fabulous Brooch Bouquet you made for my special day. I was pleasantly surprised to see it delivered in its own unique storage box aswell.  The bouquet itself is outstanding and something I will treasure forever. Thank you very much

Emer Benson, Sligo, June 2014


“Just want to say a massive thank you to Julie from Bouquet-licious.Your work is truly amazing.From the initial meeting to the final meeting everything was so professional and super helpful.Nothing was a problem.I had a particular heirloom from my grandmother who passed away which was very special to me which I wanted to be a part of my bespoke bouquet.Julie was so helpful and creative and guided me with the decision on how to enchance the bouquet.I also used different brooches from both sides of the family.My bouquet is unique and special to me and I will treasure the bouquet forever.So for any brides to be who are thinking of purchasing one of these unique bespoke pieces I promise you will not be disappointed.Thanks again Julie you are truly amazing at your job.Thanks.xxxx”

Carla McNulty, Mayo, May 2014


Hi Julie,

I must say I was more than pleased with the beautiful brooch bouquet. You took on board exactly what I said regarding the dress and colour scheme and made a bouquet for me which is going to perfectly compliment my dress. I look forward to the big day in Spain and then again in Wicklow when I can show it off.

It is a credit to you how you have finished it to such a high standard, I will most definitely be recommending you.

Many thanks for your hard work which is evident in such a perfect final product.

Best wishes in the future.

Helen Doyle, Wicklow, May 2014


Hi Julie,I just want to thank you for my fantastic bouquet. Words cannot describe how much I loved it. It was more that I every could imagine I loved it so much as did all my guests. It was the focal & talking point of the day. The fact that I can keep it forever is just brilliant and I hope some day to pass it down the family chain.I cant believe after one conversation you know exactly what I wanted and you do not know how much having the lockets on it meant to me. Seems both our mums are deceased I felt at ease knowing I had them both in my grasp walking up the aisle and I cannot thank you enough for allowing me to have that.You truly are one in a million and amazing at what you do.

Suellen McKenna, Letterkenny,Co Donegal, April 2014


A big thank you to Bouquet-licious and Julie for my amazing bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, groomsmen boutonnieres, and mother of the bride and groom’s bespoke handcrafted brooches for our wedding in March 2014. Everything truly was stunning and I was overwhelmed by the results.I wanted a diamante bridal bouquet and left the remaining items (bridesmaid bouquets, boutonnieres, and brooches) in the hands of Julie with very little guidance. The results truly were more than I could have imagined. Everything perfectly complimented the wedding colours and theme and Julie took so much hassle out of the day for us as she was so easy to work with and seemed to know exactly what I wanted with very little instruction. She was always available and easy to contact (I found the skype contact particularly useful to show bridesmaid and mothers of the bride and groom’s outfit colours). We really wanted something different for our big day and something to fit in with our rustic vintage theme. Julie’s work truly was stunning and her attention to detail is second to none. I cannot recommend Bouquet-licious highly enough!

Naomi Campbell, Belfast, Northern Ireland, March 2014


Hi Julie, sorry I haven’t got to you sooner, we’re just back from honeymoon. Just want to say my bouquet was absolutely fabulous, it was the talk of the day, even my photographer thought it was gorgeous. He never saw anything like it before. You were so lovely to deal with and made it so easy for us to decide. Having my grannies brooches made it extra special and I can treasure it forever. If any bridesmaids out there are planning on giving the bride a present, there is nothing I could recommend more and from only one place that’s Bouquet-licious. I couldn’t recommend Julie highly enough. I haven’t many pics yet so i’ll send more when I get them thanks again Julie xx

Sarah O’Dowd, Castlebar, Mayo, February 2014  


Hi Julie, We just wanted to thank you for the amazing job you made of Sarah’s bridal bouquet, it was beautiful and Sarah was truly delighted with how it turned out. You were a pleasure to deal with and we could not recommend you highly enough. We will forward on pictures of the bouquet as soon as we can. Once again thank you and we look forward to coming back to you for the next wedding in the family!! Take care Mary Ann”

Mary Ann Woods Walsh,  Mayo, February 2014  


Hi my name is Maureen and was so excited to have a New Year’s Eve wedding in the venue of my dreams. My husband and I decided we didn’t want a church wedding as we wanted something more intimate and informal but with an elegant unique ceremony. Everything we had at the wedding was bespoke down to the Blessing itself. I love flowers but the thought of my beautiful bouquet withering away was horrible so I discovered Bouquet-licious. From the moment I spoke with Julie I was immediately at ease. I had an idea in my head that Julie helped me develop. From the outset she was so easy to work with, nothing was out of her reach. My colour was royal purple with cream satin flowers and vintage lace and of course the elegant sparkle of the brooches. My flower girl is a very playful girl and when I said this to Julie she suggested a few purple feathers in her bouquet and a sparkling silver butterfly. It was stunning and my little flower girl treasures it and won’t let her friends even touch it! Thank you Julie so much for your style and creativity but also your relaxed nature it was wonderful to work with you.” Regards Maureen

Maureen Lawlor, Mayo, December 2013


 

~Julie  Thank you so much for the beautiful brooch bouquets you made for the bridesmaids and flower girls. They were stunning and we really appreciate all the work and effort you put in.

Stephanie Byrne, Derry, July 2013


  ~Julie, what can I say, my bouquet is more beautiful than I could ever have imagined! Thank you again. Wishing you all the best for the future.

Bernie Whyte, Dublin, 2013


~Hi Julie, “To anyone interested in getting brooch bouquets for their wedding or event I cannot recommend them highly enough. Personally I don’t really like flowers or greenery in general, so when I saw an advert for bouquet-licious.com on the Western People I was quite excited. I had a quick look at the website and this confirmed to me they were what I was looking for. I didn’t even know such a thing existed! I went to meet Julie in Bouquet-licious and with a little chat about what I was looking for, along with looking at some fabulous samples we agreed on my own bridal bouquet, the bridesmaid’s teardrop bouquet, flower girl, page boy and also the buttonholes for the men & parents of the bride/groom. Basically I kitted all the bridal party out from Bouquet- licious with only fresh flowers in the church.I went to collect them on the week of the wedding and LOVED them, especially my own. Somehow Julie knew exactly what I had wanted and managed to create it. If I loved my bouquet it was nothing to the reaction the brooch bouquets got at the wedding. EVERYONE commented on them, especially all the ladies! People loved the bling, the fact that they could be personalised to likes/dislikes, colours, that you could incorporate some sentimental pieces into them. We had a traditional wedding and it was great to bring something new to it. My bouquet brooches were a real talking point at our wedding and it is great that I can look at my bouquet at any time and remember such fabulous day. Thanks again Julie. Genevieve & Mikey

Genevieve Flanagan, Kerry, November 2013


~Hi Julie, I just want to say a huge Thank You to Bouquet-licious for my beautiful bouquet for my big day, made from personal pieces of jewellery that mean a lot to me. It was so well put together, I couldn’t believe how fab it looked when I saw it – something I will have forever, and for my flower girl such a beautiful little one and not forgetting the buttonhole for my hubbie which was very different and looked fab on the day. We got so many compliments on the day about our bouquets and the buttonhole. It’s a credit to you. We really appreciate all the time and dedication you put into them. Thanks again. Luv Martina, Gerry & Sophie xxxx

Martina Duffy, Mayo, October 2013


~Hi Julie I just want to say what an absolute pleasure it was to deal with you for my bouquet for our wedding. From the very start nothing was a problem and you made things so easy. Once I gave you my colour scheme and personal pieces of jewellery, you took them and made a beautiful piece that I will cherish forever. The communication was fantastic from the word go and I was kept up to date with the progress at every stage. I never had a moments worry. And to top it all off, everyone loved it!! I had so many compliments on the day. I have absolutely no problem in recommending you to anyone. Thank you so much xxx

Jacinta Moyles, Foxford, Co Mayo, September 2013


~Good evening Julie, I received my Bespoke Bouquet and Button Hole this week & I thought I would message you to say we are absolutely delighted with them. They are even better than we imagined. We appreciate all the time & dedication you have put into them to make them perfect for our wedding day. We can’t thank you enough. We will treasure them and they will be lovely heirlooms to pass on some day-Kind Regards, Louise and Damien xo

Louise Henry-Taggart & Damien Owen, Cheshire, England, July 2013


~A big Thank You to the fantastic ladies of Bouquet-licious.  I was a very relaxed bride with a very tall order with very little time.  The ladies welcomed me in with open arms.  They spoke with me for a few moments as I described my ideas. They had samples of their work on location which allowed me to see the beautiful creations they had completed.   I needed a bouquet that was elegant, classic, with a splash of colour and would endure the test of time.  Also that could survive a mountain climb without losing any of its flawlessness.  They offered to Skype which allowed me to follow the progress and modify anything if needed.  I also included some family heirlooms which added to the romance and emotional attachment to the bouquet which I hope to pass on to my daughter.  When I went to collect my Bouquet I was speechless, it was more spectacular than I ever could have imagined.  It was presented to me in a beautiful box with a scroll with the details of how my husband proposed to me.  It was a lovely personal touch which the ladies added to box.  Thanks again Ladies for making my beautiful bouquet for our special day.

Allison Clarke, Dublin, 2013


~Girls great to have met with you both, really amazing bridal bouquets, brides to be should check out your amazing collection!!!

Regina Coady, Elegant Touch


~Just wanted to say thank you so much to Julie and Sam for my beautiful bouquet! From the initial selection of my brooches right to down to the presentation of my bouquet you were extremely kind, professional, helpful and absolutely fantastic to deal with! Everyone commented on how unusual and beautiful my bouquet was and it was great to be able to include my own personal and sentimental pieces! It will be a treasured heirloom for years to come.

Thank you so much for delivering the jewellery box, I am so chuffed with it.  I have shown it to a few and everybody thought the same, stunning!

Best present ever, you can definitely put your hands to anything, still so happy with it as was the person that got it.. I would definitely recommend to anyone and will certainly be in contact again.  Thanks again !
