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.
I love the woman shaped soap! And I can see all the wonderful texture possibilities in your thriftting finds.

Beautiful soap. I’ve been asking around for a electric skillet for you and checked four resale shops, no luck yet. You’ll find one soon since you are “working” at the local thrift store.
Carla, Thanks for your help with my search. I may just have to buy a new one!
Rinda, the calendula soap is not only pretty, it is so bubbly and wonderful! It’s so pretty I hate to use it but I am.
A monkey guarding the bananas…HA! That’s precisely why I haven’t volunteered at our local thrift shop. I drag too much stuff home they way it is!

Halle, That’s why I can’t volunteer at the humane society – we’ve have gobbs of kitties! But thrift shops are dangerous for me but it’s fun and I did limit myself to $5.
