Ornaments Riddle Answers and Perfume Draw Results

2014th medium was harder but two people recognized old wooden clothes pins.

And 2013 proved to be the hardest: only one reader – Lisa Plum – has recognized sand dollars.

But have I mentioned it was a Christmas draw? Lisa Plum gets a 5 ml decant from my bottle of Chergui.

All the winners: please send me your shipping addresses.

I have been in a foul mood because of car troubles yesterday and today, so reading this has turned my frown upside down. :-) Now, perhaps i am being stupid, but i cant see an email address for you so that i can send my postal details, I don’t want to post them in a comment. Can you advise please.
