Meet TiLT Creations

Teresa is the woman behind TiLT Creations. A stay at home mom to two, Teresa has been sewing and crafting for years and now shares that talent with others through her online store.

Handbag in Brown and Pink Blooms is one the newest additions to TiLT Creations. I just love the pink and brown combo. Here is the low down on this beauty...

This mid sized Janet handbag fits great on both your arm or in your hands.
The exterior is a cotton shirting fabric with brown blooms that have a pink center on a cream background.
The lining is an ivory silk twill ~ the lining is interfaced to give some shape and stability.
The closure is a magnetic snap. There are no interior pockets.
There is rose colored 7/8" grosgrain ribbon sewn around the bag's exterior. There is a vintage styled antiqued bronze stamped metal floral filigree attached to a gathering of the rose ribbon on the front of the bag.
The strap is the same rose ribbon, stuffed with polar fleece to make them soft to grip. It is one loop that is held at the sides under a pocket of sorts inside each side of the bag. These "pockets" are made from the same fabric as the exterior, giving a pop of contrast on the interior.

approximate size:
11 1/2" wide
6" top to bottom at the center
2 1/2" deep

You can't beat the reasonable price on this gorgeous handbag. I have a feeling it won't be in her shop for long.

Teresa also has a destash shop, TiLT Too!, along with FOUR blogs! It's all I can do to keep up with one, I don't know how she does it with four!

A Tropical Oasis

I take a deep breath and smell the salty air coming off the ocean through the open doorway as warm breezes kiss my skin. I quickly open my eyes to take in the views of the tropical oasis when reality sets in...I'm laying in my own bed, buried underneath a mountain of blankets to keep warm, hear my husband snoring next to me and the furnace clunking in the basement as a blast of warm air pours from the register. Sigh....It's that time of year when winter begins to wear on me and I dream of warmer climate. Most of the snow has stayed south, pushed further north, or missed us far this winter. I'm not missing the snow all that much, but I sure am missing the warmer weather. I'm all for ditching the coats, scarves and gloves in favor of shorts and tank tops. This year I feel more cabin fever than I've felt in the years before, most likely because last summer we didn't have much of a summer to speak of. The yearning for warm tropical air is beckoning me. I hope the lack of snow means an early spring and nice warm (and long) summer. But until then, my tropical oasis will have to greet me in my dreams.

Chocomint Soap

Cool and refreshing peppermint drowning in a pool of chocolate is exactly what this soap is all about. This bar of soap is dressed up with curls of chocolate soap on top. Smells delicious enough to eat (although we do not recommend eating) and feels great on the skin. You will find some of these fabulous bars of soap in our shop.

It's Been A While

Time has managed to slip away from me the past several months, and blogging has had to take a back seat. I found my soaping groove which means the blogging groove is coming back, also. :) Here is one of my newest creations ~

Purple Mountain Majesty ~ This is the epitome of clean and crisp. It's the ultimate water scent with the freshness of an icy mountain lake packed into one single bar of soap. This is sure to please both men and women alike. You can find some of this fabulous soap here!

On another note...I have had to put the comments on this blog under moderation due to the excessive amount of spam and obscene comments that have been left in recent months.
