Thanks everyone for your suggestion for my new soap. The name I chose is "Tranquility." This was suggested by Debbie, and I agree with her; it does have a Zen feeling. As soon as Debbie sends me her address, I will get the prizes out to her.

Thanks again for your suggestions. It was a difficult choice.

Buttons are Back
The Bar of Buttons soap is back. I've got a new photo of a white Bar of Buttons, but I can't wait to try it in black. Maybe a deep country red or pine green for the holidays. But right now my favorite is just plain white.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week.

Rose D'Amour and Ripple

Hello Everyone,

I want to share 2 of my newest soaps. I have had my eye on these molds for a long time. They are a bit pricey, but I am so glad I purchased them. I love the rose for many reasons. First it IS a rose and the heart shape makes it extraordinary. The detail is so delicate and beautiful. What I really love is that it will stand up to shipping.  Now that's a rose after my own heart. Please excuse the poor pun.

This is the third in a line I call Zen Garden. I love the elegant simplicity of this soap. I scented my samples with Water Blossom Ivy, one of my favorites. Right now I am calling this one Ripple, the name that the mold maker gave it. However, if any of you have a suggestion for a more romantic name, please let me know. If your suggestion is used, you will recieve one of each of these new soaps. Thanks so much.
