Sudsy Surprise

Does anyone else get excited when they see a key in their mailbox.? Here it means you have something too large to fit in the regular mail slot, so they put it into one of the two large package mailboxes that flank the 20 others. Yesterday I got a key because I had a wonderful package waiting from the real soap company.

I had ordered four soaps just three days ago. The aroma that wafted out the second I opened the box, well, we need smellablog. I ordered Valencia Orange. Grapefruit Bergamot ( I think will be my favorite) Rosemary Peppermint, and the one you see here Oats Goats & Honey. I love the homemade look and texture.

I was impressed with the quality and care that Cindy puts into every bar and you must read her section on why she makes soap.

I had already decided that one bar would go into the powder room for my guests to enjoy. It looks wonderful don't you think? The other bars are affordable luxury bars just for me. Maybe I'll watch the Oscar red carpet from my tub with a lovely glass of vino. Oh, geez it's only 3:00. OK skip the vino.


Doesn't everyone have jewelry in their powder rooms? No?

Please visit Cindy at the real soap company soon.

I love receiving parcels... so exciting... . I'll have to pop over to Cindy's and check it all out!! Thanks for the lovely comment.. xx Julie

Her scents are delicious. I almost ordered soap from a site the other day and then realized I'm over run with soap. I bit of an obsession. I really love the texture and look of her soaps so I might just have to give in.
ps....Love Rhoda...I think I really identified with her when I was younger....more her then Mary:)) haha

I DO LOVE THE SMELL AND LOOK OF EARTHY SOAPS. I MADE SOAP ONCE, LONG AGO, BUT THEY DIDN'T LOOK ANYWHERE NEAR AS GOOD.
