Hi Everyone,

It's so hard to believe that summer is just about over.  We hope that all of you had a wonderful and relaxing summer. We especially hope that Hurricane Irene spared you. We have been very busy with lots of new items. We're going to share some of them with you. 
First is our selection of soap for men. We have thought about this for a very long time, and after a number of requests, we are happy to present them. They are pictured on the left and are available in a few designer scents as well as a few of our popular unisex fragrances. We have even created some boxes that should please our male friends. One of them is pictured on the right.

We have had a lovely mold featuring two cherubs for a while. What is so special about this one is that the sides of the soap also have a lovely cherub design. But as special as this mold is, we couldn't decide on a name or a presentation for it. Sometimes the names are the hardest part. So now we are happy to show you what we call Love Eternal. You can see it below.

In keeping with our policy of packaging every soap in a hand-embellished gift box, we are including a matching box, which you can see on the right.

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to visit us at Shabby Lane Shops.

See you soon,

Look Who's Back

Hi Everyone, 
Where does the time go? I know it has been a while, but I have been making lots and lots of lather lately. I have also been working on new products and packaging for some customer favorites.  If you'd like to see  our new additions and also receive news of sales, sign up for my newsletter here. It comes out every 2 months or so. But for now, we want to share the return of one of our favorites and new packaging for another favorite.

He's back! Our Rubber Duckie soap was very popular, but he was also a packaging/shipping nightmare. In the past we attached toy Rubber Duckies to a pond which was made of soap. Now we have a Rubber Duckie made of 100% soap. He is packaged in his own little box. He even has a little side kick, also available separately.

We also have lovely new packaging for our buttons. We love it. Hope you do too. The tin can be used for other little treasures when the soap is gone. We are also planning other soaps and more designs for these lovely tins. 

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you soon again.

Peonies and Froggy

 Hi Everyone,
I know it has been a long time. I have been really busy making lots of soap. I have finally started working in my garden. It rained for so long, I could not get out there. I finally had success with peonies that I planted a few years ago. I moved them and they are thriving. I have a picture of one of the plants. I never thought I'd be showing pictures of a plant, but what the heck. Just this once. 

Now on to some soap. I have been really busy, but one of my favorite new items is one that I just call Froggy. I've added the photo of the soap and the gift box below.I hope you think he's as cute as I do. I almost want to kiss him. Just almost. Thanks for stopping by.

 Pardon my absence. It all stared with major computer issues. It took a while and resulted in a new computer from Dell. That covers the first 6 weeks of my absence. I will spare you the rest. But now I'm back to blogging.

I decided to write about ZipperStop.com, which is my favorite source for ribbon. I'm sure many people are aware of this wonderful company. It has been around for about 70 years. You can read all about the history of ZipperStop here. I just love this company's story. I'm sure you will enjoy it too.

ZipperStop is located right here in New York. I could easily hop on the subway and go the store's location in lower Manhattan. Or I could drive there. I do neither; I have my ribbons shipped. I buy 3 at a time as I slowly add to my stash and try to keep the clutter down.  Why only 3 at a time? Why don't I go there? It can be tough sticking to my rule of only buying an item when I get rid of an item. If I went there, I would probably buy 33.  I am not interested in lugging tons of ribbon (or myself) up and down subway steps with tons of ribbon for an hour long ride where no seats are guaranteed. It is at this time that I invoke my arthritic senior citizen status. I don't drive there because the shipping is less than the bridge tolls. I live in the Bronx, so bridges must be crossed. Then there's parking. ZipperStop is located in the Canal Street area. Canal Street should be pictured in the dictionary under the listing for the word congestion.

ZipperStop has a great web site and the popular seam binding ribbon that so many of us use is available in 202 colors. It is 1/2 inch wide and 100 yards cost $7.95. I think that is a great  bargain for a thing of beauty.

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.
