A Tad of Old Time Pickin'

We went to Ohio over the weekend and I had to make a quick stop to look for enamelware.
Found some!

I had to grab that pulley and the letterpress drawer, too.

I have piles and piles of enamelware in my basement.
Today, I started pulling it all out of boxes and washed every single piece.
My hands weren't pleased with that decision, but they felt better after an application of shea butter.

Plans for all that enamelware?
Well, it will be paired up with my handcrafted soaps and be up for sale.
Rustic and Simple. A vintage farmhouse look.
I think it will be a good fit. For me. My shop. And my buyers.

New Season

I'm ready.
Ready for Autumn.

I'm ready to...
wear soft, cozy sweaters, 
drink yummy hot cocoa, 
make my homemade soups and breads,
sit by the fire pit with a glass of wine enjoying the warmth of a fire,
enjoy the smell of my freshly baked cookies,
walk my dogs in the cool, crisp mornings,
just move about to a slower rhythm while taking the time to appreciate it all.

Yep, fall is my favorite time of the year.
I'm ready for the new season.
How about you?

Wild Woman Here

Yes, I know.
I've been missing in action.
I haven't written a post in ages.
I haven't taken time to visit anyone.
But really...would you when you look and feel like this?

My hair is a mess.
I have bags under my eyes.
My feet hurt.
Blah, blah, blah.

I'm not asking for any sympathy. Just please accept my apologies.
 Life is still good cause I've been working on this...

Yep...a new business adventure.
And I'm making soap. Lots of soap.
And more soap. Hundreds of bars of soap.
And I think I'm getting high on the fumes from the essential oils.
In a good way that is.  :)

So I'm trying to get into a routine and find the rhythm for my day.
I'm getting there. And I'll be back on here soon.
So much more to tell.
Y'all have a wonderful weekend!!!
