Yesterday I received in the mail this wonderful package of soaps from Wendy Lorimer of Lorimers’ Soap in Scotland.
Wendy had emailed me about my marbled fabric. Since I also love to not only make soap but to try others, we set up a swap. I sent her two of my marbled pieces for her soaps. I was dying to try her Calendula goatmilk & organic Shea soap and Dave was interested in the Lemongrass & Ginger so I requested those for the trade. She was so sweet to include her rose geranium lip balm!
I’m looking forward to taking her soap for a test run today!! Thanks again Wendy! Check out her soaps and lip balms HERE.
On a thrift shopping note, I have started volunteering with my friend Barbara at our local thrift stores once a month. Dave told a friend of his that it was like the monkey guarding bananas! Well, yesterday was the day and here are a couple things I bought at the end of my shift.
They are all for fabric. I especially liked the wood piece. Can’t wait to use them. The white-lace piece was too pretty to resist. I had stuck $5 bill in my pocket in case I found something I couldn’t live without. These items totalled $1.35! What a deal.
Happy Saturday all! And thanks again to Wendy for the swap.
