Great New Blog

You want to stop over, visit and follow a great new Blogger named Samantha's Accessories. Samantha is a young 20 year old woman who is just venturing out in the sewing and stitchery line. She doesn't have her website started yet but is busy working on an ad for Country Sampler Magazine. Truly an ambitious young lady. Rumor has it, she may be having an Apron Giveaway soon :)

Let's really encourage her in her endeavors. I'm pretty sure she'll love for you to say hi!!!

Natural, Gentle, Fragrant, Luxurious, Silky, Smooth, Unique

Those are words that describe the new products found at The Farmer's Attic from Summer Kitchen Soaps. Summer Kitchen Soaps creates handcrafted, artisan soap the old fashioned way. Their soap is made by the cold process method, retaining all the naturally occurring glycerin in their products. Commercial bars have the glycerin stripped away and sold back to you in another form such as body lotions or toothpaste. Their bars are filled with detergents, many being the same ones you find in your bottle of laundry detergent. These ingredients are meant to be "degreasers" and they dry out and sometimes irritate the skin. Their bars have every drop of skin loving glycerin still inside.

Here at The Farmer's Attic, we know you'll appreciate the care Summer Kitchen Soaps takes to make each small batch, filled with skin moisturizing oils like almond oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil, palm oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter, as well as natural essential oils and fine quality fragrance oils that are all Phthalate free.

Many of their soaps are natural, and many are vegan except those made with goat's milk, honey or beeswax. They use only high quality vegetable base oils in their soaps.

Summer Kitchen Soaps never test on animals, only willing family and friends. They try to keep the majority of their packaging green by using natural, biodegradable products and products made from recycled paper. You can even compost their soap box if you remove the label first.

You'll feel the difference the very first time you use one of Summer Kitchen homemade soaps. The luxurious lather and moisture rich emollients will leave you clean, moisturized and say nothing of the intoxicating scents! And you might just find yourself reaching for that lotion bottle less and less.

Free Shipping if you order 3 or more Summer Kitchen soaps now through July 31st*!

New Look!!!

Everyone needs a change now and then (me especially). I used to live in a house where I was able to change the furniture around in my living room. My husband would come home from work and find the furniture rearranged on a regular basis. The house I'm in now doesn't allow me the fun of rearranging other than how I decorate; from curtains to photos, etc.

My blog gives me a great opportunity to "rearrange" whenever the mood strikes. There's not a whole lot of changes done but to me it feels brand new! Take a look around and let me know what you think.

The background was designed by Amybug's Primitive Attic. Amy is such a talented lady. She even took the time out of her busy schedule to change out the background for me. All I needed to do was "rearrange" a few of the elements. I love it!!! Thanks Amy!

Feeling Lonely

I was wondering why no one has commented on any of my posts for a while (that's unusual) and decided to take a look around. For some strange reason, the settings were set to emailing me a comment. That is now fixed.

I love everyone's comments. You are all a great encouragement to me. Don't be shy :)
