Time to Rest

Time to Rest

Our holiday market season has wrapped for 2015. Time to take stock, share meals with family and friends and plan the products for 2016. Soaps take 4-6 weeks from pouring to being ready for the bath. Coming on for January is the Buttered Vanilla Latte, a fragrant exfoliating bar.  For February we will relaunch Mughal Rose, an intoxicating feminine bar redolent of the exotic east and the rising sun. Perfect gift for the perfect love. March speaks to me of wind and rain and the melting earth....perhaps an Oakmoss and Patchouli blend. Just a few highlights for the new year....

A New Market Venture!

In my neighbourhood, there is no access to fresh food, other than the large supermarkets. A large suburb of Halifax, Spryfield continues to be a bedroom community.

Farmers' markets are notoriously fun places to gather, have coffee, buy treats, food and network.  With the support of the Community Development Officer, I decided to start a market. Here is your invitation to join us April 17, 2016. Meet your Makers! Launch! Spryfield and District Community Market...

Day 2, the door is stuck!

Content management systems are easy once you have the structure entrenched in your mind. we have arrived, but the door keep stickin'. That is, things look pretty and organized and I forget to save a page. Nothing like the dreaded 404 message or a blank web page to shake one's confidence....onwards, with a little oil. Or a lot as it were. Here's a little sunshiny dawn of our Halifax harbour....in August.


We've arrived

Newest soap unmolded this afternoon. Ummm, the house smells of Buttered Vanilla Latte. Vanilla imparts such a warm sweet aroma. Contrast that with heavy wind and rain tempest outside. Great day to start a new website!
