Sun is about so far today


Yesterday was a 6 . something day, very cold for this area...it gets cold but not snow cold that close...
today I began much earlier than I had anticipated with a doorbell ring not long after 7.30am...
Sleeping nicely & woken to my parcel delivery from Saison ...
I use Nesti Dante soap as it lasts long & has adoreable lasting perfumes & I treated myself to their NEW perfume... 
I have always said if they made perfume like the soaps I'd roll in it...
I have not rolled in the perfume ..Yet.
It was a fabulous deal as I connected with the newsletter a $10 discount first order, I ordered the soap too.... & when I delved into the box this morning there is a second soap, a sample perfume & a sample body cream..
It is an indulgence & it is something I don't do a lot of in these days..  

You know what is wonderful about making customer connections with other companies who either do so much of an unique trade or specialise in a niche market.
I feel I come home...
it reminds me...
how I should aspire to...
in what I do....
It
also reminds me so vividly that it is surprising
of my apprenticeship days in a hairdressing salon..
where French was the leading in product...
where customer service was taught...
where dress was ctitiqued...
hair was expected to be well groomed....
the perfumes from the products we used in the 1960's .....
It transports me back 
to all of this...
*
My work is smaller than what I am talking of here.... it is online...so one doesn't get to reach with the same degree of customer connection...
My smile is missing...
However...it is  so much to be aspired to again & be reminded of again.
When I paint my buttons or decorations...it is with the utmost care.... 
I paint love into each Santa, funny deers, flowers, cats..
Each is individually loved as it is worked on...
This is a creation I cannot cut corners on....
&
this is also what I appreciate with Nesti Dante business, no corners are cut...
They have divine packaging...
