Shop Hop Begins with Birthday Wishes for Marie Antoinette

Thanks to Marie Antoinette of Dolls by Marie Antoinette for inviting me to the lovely birthday soiree given by Joy of Cupid's Charm. Joy has decided to honor Marie Anoinette, everyone's favorite French Queen on Sunday, November 2, 2008. If you are not familiar with Marie's and Joy's blogs, click the links above. You will be delighted. Both ladies have wonderful blogs; I promise you won't be diappointed.

I can't think of a better way to begin the Twelve Days of Christmas Shop Hop. Savon Marie is participating in this fun-filled shopping event sponsored by Make Mine Pink . Each day I will be adding new items or featuring customer favorites at special prices. It's easy and fun to participate just register at Make Mine Pink and visit each participating boutique.

Marie Antoinette certainly knew how to throw a party! As a close personal friend of the Queen, I am very honored to participate in yet another of her birthday celebrations. I just happen to have a photo of her birthday soiree a few years ago. Here I am sizing up her shoes when she nodded off after a sugar binge. She did promise them to me. Really, she did. But that's another story. Her shoes were too big for me anyway.

I did make some lovely tarts for this year's soiree. I have three varieties.

The first is a delicately scented Rose Petal Tart. The second one is the ever popular Cherry Tart, and finally, in honor of Marie's Austrian heritage, a luscious Apricot Creme Tart. As you can see, I did get the shoes after all.

Unfortunately, I am not a baker. I am a soap maker, so please don't eat the tarts. Enjoy them in your bath, instead.

Show and Tell Monday

Hello Everybody,

So many people love this time of year and I am one of them. I love the cool crisp weather, the lovely colors of Fall, and Halloween.

Today, I am showing my latest soap creation. These leaf soaps are dusted with a bit of gold mica and scented with a fragrance called Indian Summer. It is a wonderful fall fragrance reminiscent of an afternoon walk down a country lane. Apples, woodsy, and a little spice make it a fragrance that both men and women enjoy.

It is packaged in a rustic oval box, embellished with golden highlights along the side. On the lid, there is a silhouette of a group of trees embossed in gold.

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.
