Terra said...

Yes, I am with you Koralee on your stacks of paper wrapped soap. I bought an organic Linden triple milled soap in a paper wrapper. This kind of soap is a great treat.
Another treat today was seeing the children carrying palm fronds and walking around the pews as we sang joyful songs. I hope everyone had a Palm Sunday of joy.

It is true, Some soaps are wrapped in the prettiest papers aren't they? I remember that thermos from Cost Plus a couple of seasons ago. I just did a post on Cost Plus they have the prettiest embroidered Market unbrella and shipping is free right now. Always love to come here and take a little rest, Sigh!! Kathysue

Koralee...

I'm late visiting you after your visit to my blog, but I haven't had computer access the last few weeks and am not going to have it again for another week or so. Hence my tardiness in visiting.

Let's see... I like that blue princess phone on your sidebar. That is so neat, and I love the pink gardening gloves I was fortunate enough to find and give as party favors to a group of bloggers who came to lunch for Claudie's birthday last week.Most of them are Pink Saturday girls, too. I don't have good pictures yet, but it was fun. I also love the little yellow chicks that she added to the favor goodies. I do have a pic of that! LOL!

Love your blog. You've got a great color eye...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Elyse said...

I love these things. Do you make them or buy them. If you buy them, may I ask where you buy them from?
