John and I live in the little country town of Springville located in the Endless Mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania. We thank God for bringing us to this beautiful area where we raised our 2 daughters and are now enjoying watching our grandchildren grow here as well.
Thank you for taking the time to stop in and visit with us.
It is our prayer that as you spend time with us you may begin to reflect over memories that you thought were long forgotten. Or maybe, you will begin to build new ones! No matter what, we pray that you will leave here with a smile on your face and the desire to share your joy with others.
May we leave you with this: "For God so loved the world (that means you) that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth (placed your faith and trust) in Him (Jesus) should not perish but have everlasting life (with Him in heaven). ~ John 3:16
You are loved!!! ~ John & Lucy Galgano

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 pampered...to 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*!
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!
...the Old Farmhouse Gathering Artisans Blog. There are some fabulous Etsy Shops listed. You want to spend some time visiting each one. You will not be disappointed!!! While you're there, become a follower so you don't miss a single new shop listed. Don't forget to "heart" the shops you visit.
This is the first time I've made a Raggedy Doll. I just love her. She is wearing a pink flannel dress and bloomers with a matching bow in her hair. For more information and to order this cute little raggedy, please stop by The Farmer's Attic.
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 :)
