You Never Know Who Is Reading Your Blog






 (The laundry room has recieved a little makeover that I will show you very soon)

I recently wrote a post showing part of my laundry room. I showed a shelf unit that I like to stack toilet paper and other necessities on. In my post I mentioned that the only toilet paper I will purchase is Northern. Well I received a thank you email from Northern and they told me they would like to send me a little Thank you gift.

Needless to say I was quite surprised and of course I thanked them.

Two days ago I received something from UPS and guess what it was?……

Northern toliet paper 003 (600x800)

Northern sent me a whole case of toilet paper!!! Can you believe it.
They also sent along a long floral box with a single rose. Guess what the rose was made out of?…. You guessed it, TOILET PAPER!!!!!!

I don’t know about you all, but I was totally shocked and pleasantly surprised!! So you see dear readers you never know who is reading one of your post.

“Enjoy the Process!” Of:

Being totally surprised with a gift that you never expected!

That is quite a pleasant surprise indeed! Although it is nothing glamorous but an unbelievable experience like this will keep me thrilled for a day or two, if I were you! The flower is a lovely touch! :) The kind people at Northern are so creative as well!

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend, Kathysue!

Well, isn't that a treat! The toilet paper rose is a sweet touch. It does make you wonder about who's reading your blog though, doesn't it?
Have a great weekend, KathySue!

This is a riot!!!!!!! Love that they did that, says a lot about the kind of company they are and I impressed!! Goes to show there ARE some brains still running some of these companies afterall. I am going to go now write about a first class trip I want to take through Europe if I mention the airlines do you think they will send me a pair of tickets? LOL......fingers crossed but seriously this was a great story...

Maybe you should do a post on how much you love jewelry from Tiffanys, just saying...

La Vie Quotidienne said...

How fun! And what a nice surprise, just goes to show you never know who is out there.(-:

Sally@DivineDistractions said...

What a hoot! Talk about good customer service! Someone at Northern really takes their marketing seriously! How nice for you! Now you have to find somewhere to store all that TP!

You are right Kathysue, you never know who is reading your blog.

Now that's an excellent PR division at work.

You got that right. I just got a call from Christopher Moore, he designs wallpaper for the lee Jofa Company.He called from New Zealand. He wants to photograph 2 of my rooms for a book he is doing on his designs. Go figure. Oh yes, one can never have too much TP.

This may make a Quilted Northern user out of me!!! I just LOVED this story. Still smiling.

laxsupermom said...

What a fun surprise! The tp rose is such a fun little touch, too. It's so neat when you find a company that actually listens and has a sense of humor, too. Thanks for sharing.

SHERRY HART said...

Amazing!!! Your right....maybe you should do a post on diamonds:)

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Yep, you never know. That is way too funny.

Uncovered Ruby said...

Now that is really cool. Who can't use more tp, and the fact that they sent a rose out of tp too, that's just special!

Angela said...

Fun!!!

Stacy Curran said...

That is so cool! And smart. Look how much publicity they got for about $20! I need to start mentioning Guuci bags more often. So I can carry one to the supermarket and the football field :)

*** Ahhhh, the "WAYS of the BUSINESS WORLD", huh??? This is delightful and OH-SO-"FUNNY"!!!

I am a turquoise addict (as in the stone AND in clothes!), Kathysue... Soooo, hmmmmm, you've got ME a thinkin' it's time to FIIIINALLY start a blog, w/ the first posting showing the incredible turquoise & silver (and coral & other fab stones) to be found, appreciated and purchased here in AZ... Alas, SOMEhow I don't think it would float re a "complimentary necklace, earings or bracelet", do you?

ANYHOOOOO, I can PICTURE you (1) receiving this "THANK YOU" and (2) thinking, "Allll this work to provide a great blog for others, and I get a CASE OF TP???? THAT'S my 15 MINUTES?"... And I'MA THINKIN', hey, thank HEAVENS there I*S TP in the world!!! Chuckles~~~

I'd say "ENJOY", but SOMEHOW that seems "odd" with a "gifting" like that, girlfriend!!!

Warmest regards, kiddo & HAPPY SMILES!

What a fun surprise! Very cool and lots of publicity for them.
Just catching up and must say I enjoyed your post about table camouflage. I've always liked them on a round table in a bedroom. XO

Becca said...

What a wonderful surprise!! You're right ... you truly never know who is reading your blog!!

Debby said...

Kathysue, this post totally made me smile! How cute! Perhaps you could get a commercial out of it!! They could use a new spokesperson... don't they currently have cartoon bears? Maybe that's Charmin! xo

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Love the toilet paper rose. :o) I agree that you just never know who's out there. Every once in a while someone I know will mention that they read my blog. I'm always so shocked...I guess I thought only other bloggers would be interested. Obviously not so!

Mona Thompson Providence Ltd. said...

Looks like someone was really paying attention. Good for you. I agree with the person who said that you just might get a commercial out of this one. Happy Labor Day. Mona

Holly said...

Wow, unbelieveable! And really nice of Northern to do - great lesson learned with this post Kathysue, thanks!
