One Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words.

I just had to share this with everyone. This adorable pink confection (on the left) is one of Janet's Creative Pillows. It is being held up by my grand daughter, Lili. She is featured in the picture on the right, and she was absolutely thrilled with her Easter present. I spotted this pillow at Janet's web site, and I knew immediately it would be perfect for Lili. It is a gift fit for a princess, and Lili reminds all of us quite frequently that she is, indeed, a princess.

Janet creates lovely pillows, but she is also a talented artist. Take a look at her lovely creations. Just click on this link. Janet's Creative Pillows. You won't be disappointed. And Janet is as lovely as her creations. Thanks, Janet.

I love lists. I like reading them and making them. They help keep me organized, and when I cross something off of a list, I feel like I have been productive. It was only a matter of time before I added a list to my blog. I decided that instead of making just one long list of favorites, I'd work my way through the alphabet. Take a look at the right. How do you feel about lists? What's on your A List?

And the winner is...

Well, I said I was new at this. My little contest needs to end now. I read a post today from Ann of Green Oak Antiques about letting go of bad ideas. I don't think my contest was a bad idea, but I do think running it for 3 weeks was definitely not a good idea. What was I thinking? The sooner I end it, the sooner I can plan another one.

So I am happy to announce a winner. I snagged a student and asked him to pick a number from 1 to 6. He chose number 2. So the winner is Lynn of The Vintage Nest. Congratulations, Lynn, and thanks for the post.

Thirsty for Spring.

Winter is on its way out. Finally! I just can't wait for Spring. It is one of my favorite seasons. I always think of Spring as a time of renewal and hope. Everyone seems happier in Spring. And why not? It brings warm weather, beautiful flowers, and sunshine. Everything and everyone seems brighter and more colorful in Spring.

Let's celebrate with a giveaway. Just leave a comment sharing what you love about spring. This contest will run until March 20. At that time, I will count the responses and have a drawing. The winner will coincide with the number drawn. In other words, if the number 8 is drawn, the 8th post will win. The lucky number will be drawn by a student in the school where I work (my version of Price Waterhouse). The prize will be an assortment of 3 soaps scented with Spring fragrances. Good luck to everyone.

Hello Everyone,Welcome to my new blog . And I really mean new. This is all so new to me, but I am sure I will soon be up to speed. I knew it was time to create a blog when I started feeling that I was missing too much fun. I plan to share ideas, favorite things, and information. I love making soaps and toiletries, so you can be sure to see some ideas and tips related to bath and body care. I have so many favorite things; I hope to share them with you in fun ways. Enjoy your visit.
