Welcome to my home!
When you pull up in my driveway you will see my Jeep with my website on the back. Its looks classy not like some painted on fly by night website statement. Think about all the people behind me locally and on roadtrips reading my website address. People in cars get bored unless they are driving. It stands to reason that people will pick up their cell phones and take a look for kicks. If I do a good job on my website and offer a fantastic product I bet they will favorite it for later. One time I got an email from a lady telling me my tail light was out. So many other perks!
Here is a vinyl cling of a fleur de lis on my driver's side window. I bought this at The Tabasco Country Store (St. Ann St.) in the French Quarter, New Orleans. They are also one of my oldest customers and good friends.
When you arrive at my front door you have to press my fleur de lis doorbell to get my attention. (purchased at http://www.inspirationsgiftgallery.com/ )
Once you have stepped into my home you are in the living room. (If you bring food you will always be let inside). Above my front door you will see a wrought iron fluer de lis embellishment over the doorway. I love it because it reminds me of New Orleans and I can't wait to go back! You will also notice the leaded glass window in my door is also a take off on the fleur de lis.
Here you see a table in front of my picture window directly behind my sofa. Yes here we go again! The silver bowl holding the very fake plant has a small fleur de lis design pressed into the metal. ( I have commited too many homicides in the plant world, this is state order no real plants)
This clock hangs in my kitchen and was also purchased at http://www.inspirationsgiftgallery.com/ . The thing I like most about it, is that I cannot figure out what time it is. (blame it on the clock)
On my kitchen counter you will also find the fleur de lis.
I keep this tray in the corner near my Keurig coffee maker in case some fancy pants people come over! Just kidding I don't know any.
I keep this displayed in my dining room in case some French Vampires stop by for a drink. I don't need to be any whiter than I already am!
This is on my Dining room table where we eat everyday. On the top is a lanter candle by http://www.imageglow.com/ . Notice there is a fleur de lis napkin holder too.
When my stove is not cooking I leave this on the skillet. Oh yes once again.
While you are here, you might as well use my fleur de lis bathroom. Notice the toilet paper cover on top of the tank it has a FDL but it also have my website address on it. By now most people think I am in a cult and run screaming from my house.
Don't forget to wash your hands before you leave!
My point to exposing my decor to random strangers today? YOU MUST BE YOUR BRAND! Create situtations that start conversations. This means in your work, your home, and your life. Think about how you can peak people's curiousity and make them die to know more about you or your business. DO you know what happens now when random strangers read this? They feel like they know me and in a sense you do. Do people buy from people that make them feel a connected? YES!!! A million times yes. You also see the passion I have for my business in these photos. I live, breathe, and sleep soap and you now see this. My mind is always on the job. Now I am going to use social media to post this Blog piece and more people will see just how crazy I am.
