Each one features a pretty floral printed transfer design.......
And I thought that they would make perfect soap dishes for the vintage inspired bathroom or kitchen, which could be changed with the seasons.....
I have made some gift set with them for my website, by wrapping the handmade lavender soaps in vintage wallpapers and adding ribbon ties and vintage costume brooches.
I love putting sets like this together, coordinating the colours of each element to create a thoughtful gift.
Sorry, all sold - THANK YOU!
I have also been making some candle gift sets for the winter season. Some have vintage fabric covered matchboxes and others are tied with antique lace with a matching vintage brooch and postcard; each one being unique.
I have updated my on-line catalogue today - I hope you will enjoy taking a look if you get the chance to.
A couple of days ago I was lucky enough to receive a surprise parcel from Michele of Cowboys & Custard. I had entered a competition of hers and although I didn't guess the correct answer (!) she still rewarded me with a prize, which was a set of her delightful handmade cards. Thank you Michele, they are fabulous - I shall send them to extra special people!
Michele also awarded me with the 'Christmas Spirit' Award for encouraging her start her own blog, which I am flattered to accept! Thank you!
I have received several emails from kind hearted bloggers who have asked why I have switched off the comment option on my blog. It was a tough decision, but it had got to the stage where I was spending so much time replying to comments and questions (I am not very good at ignoring emails!) that I wasn't getting enough of my work done. My website is my only income and I have to work hard making my handmade creations, answering customer emails/orders, packing the orders, regular trips to the Post Office, sourcing vintage goodies, typing website listings - oooo that takes FAR too long!, taking photos of new items....................................I could go on and on and on......
Anyway, it was suggested by a few that I switch the option back on for those who like to leave comments or read them, which I will do but I am sorry in advance if I am not be able to reply to any comments/questions received. I certainly wasn't looking to cut myself off from the Blogging community, I just felt guilty for not having the time to comment on other blogs!
