day 9 of the advent calendar 2011

Welcome to day 9 of the advent calendar 2011. The last few days were just wonderful and I thank you ALL, for your enthusiastic comments. Today, you can win something that you cannot buy. Nowhere.  Just leave a comment below and make sure that you take your chance today.

This very morning, I saw the sun rising and the sky exploding in colors. It was the first thing I saw. Well, actually: It was the second thing. The first thing was my face in the mirror, after a short night and a bit too much work yesterday. I took the phone and did a quick photo (of the sky, not my face) . You see it bellow. Actually, it looks almost nicer than reality.

And then I figured: I will need to make the soap "Mandarines ambrées" today and started my working day. It is a glycerin soap that I make every year for X-mas, as gift for friends and family and a few, very few selected winners. I will pour them in a few hours. And you can win one. It smells fresh, citrussy, yummie and with a hint of a vibrant amber gris. And it is expensive to make....And, as we got so many comments in the last posts: I will also give a consolation prize: A cologne du Maghreb. Thus, two chances for you today!

Just leave a comment, anything goes. As always: I will pick the winner by random.org and let you know by e-mail. If you wish you can tell the world what you have seen, first thing, in the morning. Enjoy your day!
