Sat. Update

Found another wonderful soap shop: 2 Virgos Designs. Traded a raggedy bag for some of her soap.




The different scents are:
Coming up Roses
Pumpkin Pie (smells just like pumpkin pie)
Lavender Fields
An unlabelled free one.
Lavender Dreams
and she also sent some incense.

I've used the "roses" one and really like it. The soap lathers nicely, smells great (but not over powering) and I can tell that one bar will last quite a while.
There is nothing worse then spending $4.50 on a bar of soap that lasts for only 6 showers. I've had it happen! That won't happen with this soap. I am very pleased with this swap!!

I won 2 give aways in the last 2 months. Got both prizes this week. The coin purse is from Tomato Tea, a wonderful shop on "Folksy". The coin purse is just the right size!! Love the little heart button attached!


The pendant is from a Give Away I entered on a wonderful blog: Jackkyll Scraps . She has an amazing shop: Suspended Imagination. I love pendants & flowers. Still have to decide what to hang it from.

Please visit the shops that have Etsy Mini's on the sidebars. All the ones on the left side are brand new shops!!
Hope everyone is having an awesome weekend!!

  6. Oh I have had that happen as well and it is so sad to watch hard earned money literally spiral down the drain! This seller sounds lovely, the lavender caught my attention. Congrats on your wins as well, both very sweet items!

  7. Cool soap! And just like you, I've had those 5 buck soaps that only last 4 showers, it's very discouraging! Lol, hope you enjoy your soaps a ton!

  12. Fabulous! I LOVE handmade soap and I really like the idea of craft trading. 'Specially since I'm pretty sure I could never make soap myself :P And long-lasting soap is DEFINITELY a plus.
