Goodies for me!


It was dreary, grey and nasty today and I was missing my daily walk, in fact I wasn't in too good of a mood when lo and behold the mailman brought me some goodies. My sweet daughter sent me these lovely new soaps from her Etsy Shop to try out and they come in the most delicious fragrances, Red Tea, Oatmeal Milk and Honey, Lemon Verbena and Creamy Buttermilk. So tonight I am going to have a wonderful soak in the tub and try one of these lovelies.
Also in the box was this wonderful little bar, it is actually called a bubble bar and it has the most wonderful lavender fragrance. Thank goodness she has instructions for use as I would have put the whole thing in the tub and would have had bubbles all over the bathroom. Apparently you break it into three or four pieces and just use one piece, the bubbles last forever she tells me so I will have a go and report back how it went.
I haven't done to much sewing this week other than these little linen pouches, and I don't think I will get a great deal done this weekend as we have company coming, but maybe I can squeeze a few projects in.

Well I am hoping that our weather will dry up for the weekend so I can resume my walking and hubby can resume his picture taking.

Have a great weekend!

The soap looks good enough to eat, hope you enjoy your visitors, sometimes I am guilty of 'I just can't be bothered to entertain' but I do anyway....
