Feeling Springy

The weather has been absolutely glorious this week! It is rare in Vermont to see so much ground and so little snow this time of year. My lilacs are budding out (YIPPEE), and I see signs of my herb plants in the garden poking their noses through the soil once again. I ditched my trip to the exercise room this afternoon in favor of getting outdoors to enjoy the fresh air. It was delightful, indeed! With the ground warming up, any snowfall that might come our way is sure to melt quickly, which warms my spirits.

Happy Birthday Christina!

It's hard to believe that one year ago today we welcomed Christina into the world. A precious miracle that immediately won the hearts and love of her family.

At 6 months of age, the independence was starting. Her personality beginning to come to the forefront.

Today she's a ham and three quarters. The big smile is just a glimpse of the sweet baby she has become.

Citrus Treasury Curated by Leyton Smiles

I woke up yesterday to find that I was featured in this awesome Citrus Treasury. I just love the various citrus colors, they are so cheery and bright. Clicking on the image will take you to the treasury, but hurry because it is only there until tomorrow afternoon....

This fabulous treasury was curated by:

The woman behind Leyton Smiles is a mom to two boys. She enjoys making homemade baby items for her own children as well as friends and family. It's a good thing she opened up a shop on Etsy. Each of her products are chic and eye catching, indeed. Who says baby stuff has to look like the traditional baby gear.
Check out this adorable Baby Swaddling Blanket in Chocolate Brown and Blue Polka Dot! Quoted from her listing: Every baby needs tons of swaddling blankets! This perfect blanket is a mod chocolate brown and blue polka dot cotton print, backed in a super soft white flannel. (And the flannel just gets softer every time you wash it!) It's large size allows for many years of use for numerous purposes - swaddling, staying warm in the car, stroller, play time on the floor, etc! This swaddling blanket would be a wonderful gift for any Mom and baby, or keep it for yourself!

♥ This swaddling blanket is a larger size than normal, measuring approximately 32.5 x 32 inches. It's also topstitched for long-lasting durability.

♥ This swaddling blanket comes tied in a cute chocolate brown grosgrain ribbon and is ready to give! Pair it with the matching burp cloth set for the perfect baby gift! See the matching burp cloth set here:

♥ All fabrics have been prewashed to prevent shrinkage. Machine wash cold and tumble dry low.

The Tulips Are Here!

Vibrant and beautiful tulips...a sign that spring is around the corner. Up here in Vermont the weather has been absolutely splendid. We still have plenty of snow laying around but it is melting, and that is a good sign. I'm anxious to see my flowers blooming once again.

I've created this trio of soaps in anticipation of spring. The purple tulip is scented with Lavender Essential Oil. The pink tulip is scented with Pink Jasmine Musk. The yellow tulip is scented with Honeysuckle. Share the essence of spring with your friends and loved ones. These make great "pick me up" gifts for those who are still burdened under the weight of winter.

Meet Dizzy Dragonflies ~ Where Spinning and Yarn are Abundant

Vicki is the woman behind Dizzy Dragonglies and Knitting Dragonflies. She states on her shop that she has always loved creating items. While her passion is yarn, knitting and crocheting, she has branched out with spinning, and hand dyeing yarn.

By accident she started selling her hand knit items when people offered to pay her to make them something.

In my journey to become better acquainted with Vicki, I found her photostream on Flickr to be the best resource where she is showcasing various projects. I am in awe of the detail on this particular project...

In addition to running two online shops, Vicki also maintains Knitting Dragonflies Blog.

Congratulations, Vicki on being the Featured Etsyblogger for the Month of March 2010!

Lilacs ~ My favorite flower of Spring

I have always dreamed of having lilacs growing outside my bedroom window. When we moved into our house, the first thing I bought was a lilac bush and I planted it between my bedroom and bathroom window. Each spring I look forward to the smell of lilac wafting through the windows. I also love to take photos of the lilacs when they are starting to bud out and as they come into full bloom.

In anxious anticipation of spring, Lilac products are making their way into our shop.

Lilac Soap

Lilac Shower Gel

Look for more Lilac products to make their way to our shop in the near future.

Whipped Sea Salt Scrub

Our made from scratch whipped soap by itself is a fabulous treat for the skin but with the addition of sea salt it offers a royal pampering treat that will leave your skin soft and nourished. Product testers have indicated their skin feels like it has been cleansed, buffed, and moisturized at the same time.

Sea Salt is beneficial to the skin. Skin absorbs sea salts, vitamins and any other substances it comes into contact with. Bathing in high quality sea salts could replenish the minerals vital to our skin metabolism.

Unlike oil scrubs that leave you reaching for help to get out of the tub or shower, our whipped soap delivers the sea salt treatment to your skin with a softening touch without that slippery oily residue.

We've enhanced the greatness of this Whipped Sea Salt Scrub with Tranquil Spa ~ a clean and intoxicating fragrance oozing with the freshness and essence of a royal pampering treatment at a day spa.

Goat milk soap is often recommended by dermatologists for their patients who suffer from skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne.
