A Perfect Gift
Posted by terrepruitt on January 10, 2015
You might have read my post Homemade Soapy Goodness back in August. I wrote about this yummy soap that I had been buying for a couple of years. It was really nice soap. It had essential oils in it and smell great. It wasn’t cheap, but I considered it one of the splurges I like to as for as a Christmas gift from my hubby. Well, this year I was counting on him being able to get it for me for Christmas, but when I went to there was nothing there. I thought she went out of business since there was no product on her website, her Etsy shop was gone, and the e-mail I sent her was returned to me. There was no notification of discontinuing business or anything. I’m always a little disappointed when people don’t leave any “out of business” information or a notice as to what is going on. I know things happen, but when you have a business, I just expect a little information to be dispensed for customers. Oh well. It so happened though, I received soap as a Christmas gift. I actually received two different soaps. One I have not yet tried, but it smells really good (you’ll probably read about that in a later post). The other one I received smelled even better so I jumped on the internet to see if I could buy it on Amazon. And I can. And I did and it is awesome. It is my new soap. It is Verbena Flower scent.
It is very nice feeling soap and even better smelling. I showed it to my niece when she was here and she couldn’t stop smelling it. It smells terrific. It lathers up nice and it leaves me feeling clean. I don’t like it when I feel like I have a layer of something left on me.
Since I couldn’t get soap from my favorite place — I was lucky to get this soap for Christmas. I purchased addition bars from French Presents through Amazon.com.
I am just noticing that I purchased Verbena Flower and the one I had received is Verbena. They smell the same, but I guess they are different. When I was ordering I hadn’t noticed that there was a Verbena, I thought they had just changed the name from Verbena to Verbena Flower, but now I am seeing they are two different things. Either way, they smell great and I am happy to have been handed a new soap to love.
I’ve spent a good portion of the last few days “undecorating”. I’ve only been able to spend a few hours each day on it so it seems to be taking a very long time. My husband and I spent at least four hours today and it is pretty much packed up. He is helping me do the part I don’t like and that is putting all the boxes back in the big boxes. It just baffles me how the small ornament boxes can come out of one box, but when I go to put them back in they don’t fit. I get frustrated so my husband comes to my rescue. Not all the ornaments have a box so it makes the process a bit annoying. I need to work on getting things more organized so it is not as frustrating and therefore less stressful upon putting things away. I am so grateful my husbands help.
I have been wanting to post about my “soap lady” since I went on and on about her.** And I wanted to share about my new yummy soap, today seems like the perfect time since I am just able to get up to my computer now.
Seems like more people than I am used to are taking their time this year with taking their decorations down. I have more friends say they are just starting or just getting done. How is your “undecorating” going? Are you done? And just out of curiosity, what is your favorite soap?
**I just check on my “soap lady” and she might be back in business, but I don’t see my regular package that I used buy and I like this other soap I am buying. Maybe she took the Holidays off. Perhaps is she is in business at Christmastime I will ask for soap from her for Christmas.
