New Items

I added some new items to my soap line, and they are now available in my etsy shop.
Laundry Soap

Animal Soaps

The laundry soap works great and goes a long way.
The soaps were so fun to make. I can't wait to give them as baby shower gifts or favors!!

I am joining in the "Shades of Inspiration" challenge. I just happened to have a few white things that I wanted to share here goes...
Here are some clematis that are growing in the back yard. This is the second year that I have had this plant and one other. (I added three more in this year). I could swear that these were purple last year, but here they are blooming like crazy and all white this year. Hmmmm??
Today my husband came home, opened the back of the van and said, "Come look at this." This picture is while the vanity is still in the van. Looks promising. All the drawers are there, just haven't had the time to put it all together yet. Any ideas for this?The mirrow is very neat, I just couldn't get it into a place for a decent picture.
Lilies coming up by the white bedframe.This is what is sitting on the windowsill above my kitchen sink. The flower is what my daughter wore at my neice's wedding back in December. The rose was HUGE!!! :)

Hope you all have a beautiful day!

A Tag for Lori

I finally sent out my tag to Lori. She is having a graduation/going away party for her son who is joining the Air Force.
Hopefully it makes it to her in time (it should).
I didn't get too elaborate with it, but I kind of like the simplicity.
I'm looking forward to her posting pics of all the tags she gets!!

What's in a word???

I have been delinquent in posting. I am still having computer problems. Once everything was up and running again, the computer lost the DVD drive. I got that fixed...lost more photos in the process and was running along smoothly for, oh...2 days. Now the DVD drive is missing again and doesn't recognize any CDs. Aaaargghhhh! I use a CD for graphics for all of my soap/craft business. Anyone have these problems with VISTA???
My son-in-law also assured me that this new computer would be super fast, I would be amazed...well, ummm...not so much.

*vista - a view extending into the distance but bounded, e.g. by headlands or rows of trees; a mental view into the distant past or future. (I definitely can view myself mental in the future!!)


*VISTA - Volunteers In Service To America (hmmm...I don't think so)

So...I went out today, leaving my vista behind (past the headlands or rows of trees) & found some beauty in my very own yard.
