More Decoratively Packaged Gift Soaps...

I've made a few more packages of gift soap to share.  I'm going to have a "Lunch & Learn" for some of the ladies from Church.  We will be having a craft show at our annual Christmas Luncheon and I thought these might make a cute contribution and not be too difficult to do.
The money we raise goes to WIC (Women In the Church) to enable us to do a variety of projects throughout the year helping those in need etc. I am excited about this and if it goes well I will find additional things for us to make for the craft show!.
Vintage velvet pansies from a vintage hat just full of them!
I'm not sure how much we'll charge.  Do you think around $5.00 is too much?  If you are interested in making these you can find my Tutorial HERE.

        I'd love for you to leave a                                                             comment.  If you like this blog I'd be honored if you became a follower ... maybe we could follow each other in Google and Linky!  If you ARE a follower PLEASE sign up to follow in Linky as well... I don't want to lose my friends if Google does get rid of friends connect.

I hope you enjoyed my little soaps.  Until next time...

Garden Bunny Tea

I want to begin with an apology.  I am still having issues with my tripod so I am not getting good photos.  
I will get this figured out soon! Thanks for your patience.
Today I am sharing a place setting of my Portuguese ceramic dishes ... I just call it  my Garden Bunny china.
I have service for eight in this set.  Additionally, I have the Tea Pot, sugar bowl, creamer. water pitcher and  the cake stand. While I really like it, I don't use it much because it seems to chip quite easily, the design of the tea pot is cute, however, the spout is so short it really drips.  Having said that it is still a sweet set and fun to use for a garden luncheon.  

Oh... and I got most of it from our favorite store ... T.J. Maxx many moons ago!

I love the detail on these dishes ... the little saucer is a ring of carrots!  How cute is that? This set also comes in pink but I was unable to find enough to make a set.  I only have the mugs in the pink. 

The marking says "Bordallo Pinneiro - Potugal"

I used these cute little Terra Cotta pot napkin rings I have had forever and just added a sprig of hydrangea.

Above... a very poor photograph of my Fitz and Floyd bunny salt and pepper set, a paper whites floral with cast iron garden bunnies and a bunny lamp.  You think I might like bunnies? LOL!!

Thanks for visiting me today and sharing a cuppa ... in case you were wondering ... the name of the tea you are drinking is Yorkshire Gold ... sooo good!
Until next time...
