Name Change




Hello Everyone,
At last, Spring is in full swing. All of those rainy days have given us pretty flowers, the days are sunny and bright, and we're ready for some relaxation.

The name of my blog has been changed. I decided to return to the original name of my business: Savon Marie. This was the name I used for about ten years. I changed it thinking I needed or wanted to have the feeling of a store. Your Bath Boutique seemed apporopriate, but it never seemed quite right. I have decided to simplify a lot of things in my life, and my business is one of them. I can assure you that the only thing that is changing is the title. The products will remain the same. In fact, simplifying is allowing me to do what I have been doing even better. So I am working on a few new formulas for lotions and potions.


To celebrate, I am having a giveaway. June 1 happens to be Marilyn Monroe's birthday. So anyone who leaves a comment will be eligible for a gift of Body Wash and Hand Cream in a fragrance named for Marilyn; it's Marilyn's Marvelous Melons. Add a piece of information about Marilyn, and if you win, I will add a bonus of Lotion Spray. The winner's name will be drawn on Friday, June 6.

Show and Tell Monday

Hello Cupcakes,
Here is my latest soap creation. For some reason, I could not post here, so they are on the right. They are made of glycerin soap with aloe and foaming bath whip. The cupcakes are Strawberry and the frosting is Vanilla Cream. I am waiting for packaging which looks like a cupcake. I am still working on the name. Today they are Bath Cakes; I was thinking of Soap Cakes or Tub Cakes. Any suggestions?

Chocolate


Hello Fellow Chocolate Lovers,

Today has been quiet but productive. I did a little soap making, gardening, and reading. I have also been thinking about my C List which will be completed and posted soon. One of the first things I wrote on my list was chocolate. It was beat only by coffee, which I happened to be drinking at the time. Chocolate is such a heavenly treat, and now it is even considered healthy. An ounce of dark anti-oxident rich chocolate is actually good for you. A pint of Ben and Jerry's triple chocolate whatever would not be a good substitute. But we already know that, don't we.


By the way, if you are looking for a sinfully delicious treat, try Oooh Fudge, pictured above. Carol of Clutterbug Studio makes the best fudge from scratch. It truly is a bit of Chocolate Heaven. One taste, and you will be hooked. As you can see, it is also beautifully packaged; it comes with its own serving spoon and it's all tied up in a pretty pink ribbon. Try some of Carol's own homemade fudge today. Taste the love!



What Your Taste in Chocolate Says About You!

Now, let's have some chocolate fun. It's calorie free. It's a Chocolate Quiz.

Show and Tell Monday

My oh My! Is it a Pie? Whipped Cream? Well, it is whipped. It's a new product I created using lots and lots of Aloe. Aloe is such a wonderful ingredient. It soothes, moisturizes, and even helps heal the skin. It's Whipped Body Butter. So new, I have not even created the packaging for it. But soon, it will be available. So that's it for my Show and Tell today.

Welcome!
