Juicy Watermelon Soap

Wouldn't you like a slice of juicy watermelon straight from the garden? It's one of the simple pleasures I love. But it will be awhile before I can indulge in that delight. So in the mean time I made this sweet smelling slice of watermelon soap. At least it smells like the real thing.:)

Blueberry Cheesecake Brown Sugar Scrub Soap
This bar smells like fresh picked blueberries and yummy cream cheese cake. So what's not to like? The bottom layer of this soap is a brown sugar scrub to help polish your skin. This soap also contains shea butter to make it extra moisturizing.

Lemon Parfait Soap

Lemon Parfait is a sweet lemon scented bar.It has a creamy ,fluffy topping of shea butter curls and a lemon wedge just for fun. It's a great spring and summer bar.

Green Gardeners Grit Soap
Are you ready to go green? I've got just the bar for you. This bar is for the gardener in all of us. It contains shea butter to help with the drying effects dirt has on our hands. It also contains tea tree oil to help prevent infections from all those nasty little cuts and scratches gardeners get. Cornmeal is added as a scrubbing agent to remove dirt and stains. The clean scent of Fresh Mowed Grass is just fun:)

Black Forest Cake Soap
I like Black Forest Cake and I like this soap. Made with layers of chocolate scented glycerin soaps and vanilla cream soap, just like the real thing! The cherries are wild cherry fragrance and have a touch of glitter. The combination of all three scents is sweet and warm. This bar is guaranteed calorie free :)

A Mother's Love Soap
I made this pretty pastel bar of soap for anyone who would like to share how they feel about a loved on. Maybe for Easter or Mother's Day or just any day for that special friend. Fragrance with a slightly sweet and innocent scent that includes a blend of peonies, hyacinth, day lilies, apple blossoms and soft bergamot. I also added just a touch of glitter for fun!

Please contact me with any questions, comments, or special requests.
Thanks for your time.

Rain, Rain, Go AWAY!!!

Wisconsin has been living under a rain cloud for the month of April and quite frankly, I'm tired of it. The weather man said today that this is the coldest and wettest April in 15 years! Yay!! All I want is to get in my garden. But what's that old saying? When God gives you lemons, make lemonade. So I have been taking advantage of my time in the house and have been make soap. This is what I have been working on:

Ginger Lime Soap
 You'll be thinking summer with one whiff of this soap! The scent is refreshing and invigorating. It has wonderful notes of citrus with a hint of ginger.

     Strawberries and Cream  Soap
A simple spring pleasure is a big bowl of strawberries and cream! Especially the first of the season. I live right next to a strawberry farm, so I know I have awhile to wait. But while I wait I decided to make this soap in anticipation of the first pick. This soap smells just like the strawberries I love. Made with shea butter, it is great for dry skin.

Lemon-Lime Frappe' Soap

Bright and cheerful, fresh and fruity, this is a great spring and summer bar. It is scented with both lemon and lime. The top of this bar is made with shea butter soap for extra moisturizing. The polka dots make it fun.

   Spring Fling Soap

 This is a great srping scented soap made with olive oil and aloe. The fragrance has notes of cherry, spice, almond and lime. The colors are fresh and bright.

So this is how I have been spending my time. All these soaps and more can be found in my Etsy shop.

Also you can follow what going on ,on my facebook  page.

           Till next time, I wish you sunshine and warm Spring days:)

           I'll be Singing in the Rain!

The Birds are Back. It must be Spring?

I am a huge bird watcher. There is nothing I like better than to wake up early on the week-end, grab a cup of coffee and sit on my front porch and watch the birds at the feeders. We live near a marsh so we are lucky to have a wide variety of different birds to watch. I think people can learn a lot from these little creatures. How they protect their young against intruders. How many of them mate for live. How they can build a nest out of seaming nothing.The list goes on and on.

I have a dear friend who works at the D.N.R. in Horicon, Wisconsin. Part of her job is to keep tract of the migration of birds through our area. She is kind enough to keep me informed as to what to be watching for.  The other day she sent me a link she knew I would be interested in and I want to share. It's of a web cam in Iowa the is set up to watch an eagles nest. It's a live feed and you can see the baby eaglets and watch the
dad bring in the food and mom do her job.It's fun to watch and I check in every day.

What do you think? Neat, Right? I think it's wonderful to see nature up close. Something to share with the whole family and something I'm happy to share with you!

                                                                Till next time.
