Our dear, beloved postal service has been on strike (who’d have guessed) for the last couple of months (or years, considering how efficient they are). As such, no-one in the area has any idea what mail they might be missing.
Now, on an average day, I can’t say I’m all that unhappy. Most mail is either utterly boring or terrifying. However, every now and then, there’s something exciting. I remain clueless as to anything good that may have been sent but for one exception.
Imagination Is Spicy had a competition on their site so, of course, I had to enter. And I WON! I didn’t get the answer right but, then again, nor did anybody else, so we ended up in a hat. Long Life was drawn! Oh, the excitement of it all. Now that, in itself, is something of a miracle but the fact that the prize actually arrived, is the greatest miracle of my time!
Our prize came beautifully wrapped and presented:
It could hardly be more appropriate, as it included a MOR Tin-Boxed Soapette and Handcream with Lychee (or Litchi as we would spell it here) flower fragrance. Together with a beautifully hand stitched heart (or favourite) brooch.
Litchi (the dog, not the fruit) is delighted! She believes it was created especially for her. She will not be getting to use it!
I love that the tin is collectable and has a cute little hinged lid. Just precious.
And, as with all things that I love, it even gave me a giggle. The soap tin comes with instructions. Maybe they’re concerned that, here in deepest, darkest Africa, we may not know how to use it.
“Add water and massage onto body for a creamy lather. Rinse thoroughly with water”
Thanks Imagination Is Spicy! I love the gifts. I love their fragrance and I always love a good laugh.
