A thankful heart ~

We really have been so very busy around here!
Soap orders have been piling in and
I am so very thankful but they do pull me away
from my other endeavors you know.

I have to share with you a sweet photo of our robin's egg blue soap
that is packaged in a glass apothecary jar ~

ALL we did was create soap this past weekend,
then clean it and package it up for mailing.

I really should have taken a photo of it before I boxed it all ~
it was just so beautiful!

I hit the thrift store yesterday and just LOOK
at the GORGEOUS lamp I found!!!
Don't look at the shade that it came with
as I will change that,
but don't you love the lamp itself????

A few more wonderful finds from the last few days?
This amazingly large paper mache dress form!!!
Can you guess what she will become?

You know I am so, so stingy now when it comes to buying magazines, right?
Well, here are two that I purchased lately and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!
I didn't take photos of inside but just thumb through them at the store
just to see what you think, OK?

I thank you so much for stopping by to see what I'm up to ~
I treasure you all so much!

Happy Tuesday precious friends ~
hugs and love,

I'm sure you won't be away from your craft room for to long. The soap in the apothecary is really pretty. Hmm could you be making another wonderful angel???? I too like those two magazines. I've been really really stingy lately about purchasing mags too, but I'll need to look for that Holiday Cottage next time I'm out and about.

I've got to get some of these soaps for my mother's stocking. I found 2 vintage bluebird lamps to give her and the soaps will make a nice theme at Christmas. :) It's all so pretty, as always.

Oh yes, the lamp is gorgeous. I wonder how it looks like when you finished it. Love the dressform and the angel it will become(smile)

Hugs from here

Love your soap! I've got to see a copy of the cottage magazine. I've got a mantel that needs inspiration.
