Here is Something I Like

Very neighbourly italian soap.
I arrived home today from a glorious riverside walk and a trip to the local nursery to see my neighbour hurrying out her door holding a beautiful Italian soap in her hand and and offering it to me. It was a 'thank you' from her for the loan of my trusty hole-punch. (Yes - I am the kind of neighbour who has innumerable odd tools on hand ... the result of many interests and a commitment to ongoing moodling).

She is in the throes of making giant playing cards as costumes for an 'Alice in Wonderland' themed gala fundraiser, and needed the hole-punch to, well, ----- punch holes. The offer of the soap included a tour of the costumes which are brilliant in their design and simplicity, along with a glimpse into her cushion-festooned living room where she is producing 'lounge-seating' for the gala, home-factory style.  I am in just plain wonderland at my good fortune in having such warm and generous neighbours! And fine soap is my one weakness and something I really, really like.
