It's really just a miserable day here with freezing rain, black ice, trees down and low temps. But my day suddenly turned warm and happy with the call that there was a package awaiting me at reception. I ran downstairs to get it and found a package from House in London with my precious I Coloniali soap!
Hmmm... pretty big package for a bar of soap, but I was sure that he'd lovingly packed this cargo in lots of wrapping. Imagine my surprise when there was a whole carton of six soaps nestled in the packing paper!
Further, there was another overwhelming present in there, but you'll have to ask House if I can tell you what it was. Suffice to say, it was an incredible, thoughtful present which will hold a place on my table and in my heart for many decades as a testiment to the kindness of strangers and people I have not yet met. Thank you so very much, House.
Because House was so generous to me, I'd like to share the bounty. If you're interested in seeing what is so special about I Coloniali, please post a comment by midnight EST on Friday, February 15. I will do a random drawing and send you a bar of the soap. I will post the winner's name on Saturday morning. Bon Chance!
