January Gratitude

Hello all and happy new year! It is our hope you are all having a wonderful winter. We have been enjoying the chance to sip hot tea and cuddle up with our loved ones.

This year has started very well for us – we had a large order placed by one of our customers from last year! We’re so excited to usher in the new year on such a good note and so grateful to our customers and patrons for their support of our small business!

This is what 151 petite soaps look like!

This year we have sworn off resolutions and began a practice of keeping a rememberlutions jar in which we store small notes about the wonderful things that happen to us this year. This winter has been a beautiful time of reflection and refocusing and we are finding ourselves indulging in a renewed interest in healthful and natural eating, meditation and exercise. So far, 2015 has been absolutely beautiful!

The holidays were full of hustle and bustle and we’ve found ourselves lacking time to make new soaps. This is the week in which we will wriggle it back into our schedule. Our focus will be on small batches with great, pure ingredients and exciting blends of essential and fragrance oils.

In Love

A city draped in saints, gods and fragrant jasmine; Rome is beautiful! We were lucky to stay in the city 7 days.

Abundant, gracious, kind people made for a thriving city full of delights for every sense. The sweets were immaculate and decadent, the fruits and vegetables smelled luscious and fresh.

The city is littered with lime, lemon, orange and fig trees.

Much of our time was spent walking the city, taking in everything it had to offer.

Our imaginations danced among ruins of temples, markets and homes of a people gone from this world thousands of years.

The architecture is enchanting.
