I have been reading Tig's blog at FuturePrimitive for some time and have wanted to try her soaps. I make these little soap dishes and I would love to figure out how to sell Tig's soaps with them. I finally ordered some and they came yesterday just in time for my 25th anniversary. Thanks Tig for the little anniversary bonus surprise! Great timing :)
I ordered the potter's bar and a soap sampler. The sampler is so adorably packaged on a rope and almost too pretty to use. I even hated unwrapping the packaging is so wonderful. Little touches like this are what buying hand made is all about! Check out the description of the potter's bar:
Stylin' : layers of country charm. With wheat bran to exfoliate the hands of gardeners & potters alike.
Scentin' : airy eucalyptus, dreamy lavender, bitter sweet sicilian lemon all spiked with a smidge of spicy fennel.
Butterin' : organic un-refined cocoa butter to soften chapped or cracked skin.
Colourin' : muted tones of palest mint green & cool washed white.
Arrivin' : in our own branded wrap with a pretty soap card with full ingredients list.
I was out on the porch and came in to the most amazing fragrance in my house. Gerry had just showered with one of the soaps and you could smell it all over the house. Heaven! I can tell already that the amount of bath taking in this house is going to double just so we can smell this soap!
and here is a slightly older version of the couple you saw yesterday and a much more intoxicated version! We had a great dinner last night at our favorite place, Top of the Hill, had fresh blueberry beer and tempura grouper, yummy. We met our friends Laura and Bob for drinks earlier at Lantern Restaurant, they were celebrating their anniversary also. We have to go back to Lantern. Beautiful place, great cocktails, and a fantastic menu. I'm thinking I'll celebrate the big 50 with a party there this year. Check out the link to see their menu. I had a drink called the Late Blossom, pretty appropriate title for me don't you think? I should name my studio that!
OK, well, just back from a deep cleaning at the dentist and a lecture about my poor dental care, and I have 7 cavities so I have to go back and get more drilling done, and I am so excited about that I could just pee! The bill without insurance would have been $700 and we haven't always had dental insurance. How in the HELL are you supposed to take care of yourself with medical costs like that. $700 is more than 2 of our car payments. Don't even get me started! How can I buy more soaps if I have to pay for dental work. torture vs. pleasure which do you think would win here?! Have a great week everyone.......
