French Farmhouse Soap

This week I am introducing some new soap. It is called French Farmhouse Soap. This soap is made from scratch using all natural ingredients.  Made mostly of olive oil and coconut oil, it also has shea butter.I love this soap! It was made by a fellow soaper, and it is the only soap I use other than my own. It feels wonderful. Sherri, of Antique Paperie designed the Rosette and image for the box. I think she did a great job.

Thanks for looking, and have a great week.

The winning entry

Thanks to everyone who suggested a name for the image of Pierrot and the lovely lady pictured in my last post. It was difficult. A few of the names were ones that I thought of, but the name that really stood out for me was Debbie's. Sweet Secrets was her entry.

Thanks to  everyone who participated.

Roses for Lili & Giveaway

Hello Everyone,

 I have been very fortunate to have some wonderful new wholesale customers. They have been keeping me very busy, but I finally managed to post a few soap boxes today. I mention the boxes with my customers because a few of them have been purchasing the boxes before I even get them posted. So, yes I have been very, very fortunate.  I am very grateful, too.  It has been fun rubber stamping and playing with my oh-so-easy-to-use greeting card software.

However, I am highlighting a few boxes with images from Sherri of Antique Paperie. I have been using her designs for a while. Sherri has recently become a member of Make Mine Pink. So I decided to feature some of her work here. The first box is named Roses for Lili. I love this design. I'm sure you agree that her work is beautiful. The next one I call Stolen Kiss. It is a perfect match for my Pierrot soap. I even managed to find a matching image by the same artist. I have not made anything from it yet, but I will very soon. I posted it here as well. It is the image on the right.  All I need is a name. I have a few ideas, but I would love some  suggestions from you. The winner will receive soap in a gift box of her (or his!) choice. Thanks. Marie
