New Soap and a most precious Christmas gift

Three new batches are on the curing rack!
Sinister, inspired by Something Wicked this Way Comes by Ray Bradbury. Blue and black layers/swirls, it even looks sinister doesn't it? The scent: Fall pumpkins, black licorice, carnival cotton candy and a hint of spearmint. Amazing. I'm so happy with this one. This book is fantastic. I love Ray Bradbury's style and have another book scent of his in the works - Dandelion Wine.

Top: Longbourn, inspired by Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen. This was for restocking. Honeysuckle and lemon, it's fresh and clean. This will be part of a new gift pack I'm working on of Jane Austen inspired soaps (along with Matchmaker and Barton Cottage).

Bottom: Celebration, inspired by The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Naturally colored soap with a light swirl of golden glamour. Think of the enchanting parties from The Great Gatsby. The scent: Champagne with just the slightest hint of sugared strawberries.


And the most precious gift of all...
