Vintage Inspiration!!

Hello When thinking about what inspires me to create my little felted folksies.. i would have to say the toys from the 1960's era is a big part of it... and i love to see little tiny miniatures of them! Here are some pictures of what inspires me to create my felted folksies!

Wonderful Homemade Soap!

Hello Everyone!!

I have made some homemade soap... we use it because there are no preservatives-- I made some darling little bundt cake soaps-this one is scented with green tea, brown sugar, and frosted fig! The scent is wonderful! I also used pearlized powder to lightly frost the top so it has icing! Way too cute! And for those that like pink, you can order one in pink with pink sugar fragrance! On sale at my Etsy Shop! Hugs, Linda
