The bathroom shower was out of soap so I opened this pretty package which had been gifted to me. I'm partial to Trader Joe's Verbena soap but since I haven't organized myself to purchase one, I had to make do.
The packaging was so pretty I really hated to open it and it is a little over perfumed for my taste. As I unwrapped the beautifully creamy bar of soap this ticket fell out. Without glasses I had no idea what it said but it did appear to be a used rail ticket. London to Tokyo Milk station. I thought perhaps I had opened the millionth bar of soap and was being rewarded with the golden travel ticket. I think however it is just a bit of marketing, a fun one and one that invoked at least a few minutes fantasy. Sigh, I guess I'm not going to London.
In my corporate life I traveled to London at least twice a year and sometimes more and I miss it. And then I didn't even know Jean Power and I totally want to go to London and meet Jean.
I'll leave you with a photo of me wearing 'My Own Necklace'
Off to Santa Cruz in the very early morning, where I'll celebrate a 60th birthday (not mine, a friends), visit with Ms. Rachel, have dinner with Beading by the Bay partner Susan and spend some time with Ms Malayna Pies. I'll meet you back here on Wednesday!
