Soapy Scavenger Hunt and a Couple of Critters

15 Nov

This week’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday items are: starts with c, cool, media, scarf, and something new.  I always try to find a theme for my scavnger hunts, but I could only fit three of them to share my recent soapmaking adventures.

From last weekend to this weekend I made thirteen batches of soap to prepare for the busy holiday season.  Here they are curing (starts with c) on my little shelf.  Well, twelve of the batches are here.  I ran out of room for the last one.  The tea tree soap is on the other set of shelves.

Top: Lightly Lavender, Cornmeal Scrubbing with Lemongrass Oil, Cucumber Melon & Black Amber and Lavnder

The milk and honey is something new.  I’ve not done that fragrance in soap before.  It was quite popular with the wax melts and candles at the pumpkin patch, so I thought I’d use it for soap too.  I also made a batch of Heavenly Honeysuckle because the sample batch I made sold out at the pumpkin patch.

I have added two other new soaps (vanilla oak and lavender) to my website (media) for sale.  You can check it out HERE.  The Milk and Honey and Heavenly Honeysuckle have to finish curing before I can add them.  I’m also hoping to add wax melts to the market soon.  That’s my next project.

Bob is a pretty cool dude, and I liked the shadows too.

I wasn’t sure what to do for scarf, but with hunters in the ditches along my property today made me think I need to get a bright orange scarf to put around Llenny’s neck.


It wouldn’t even have to be knitted from llama yarn.

      Most hunters are responsible, but I always have that lingering fear this time of year.

    Great texture in the close up soap shots. Of course, the animal photos were my favorite.

    I know how you feel about wanting another dog. I know I have to wait too but it is sooo hard.

      Hopefully the perfect dog will find its way to your door soon. 🙂

    Hunting season sighhhhh always glad to see the end of that!!

    • Teresa November 16, 2015 at 5:18 pm #

      Most people around here are really good. It’s just that one that worries me.

    Your cool soaps are just beautiful!! So tempting to try some, except that we at this house have to avoid scents, because of #1 Daughter’s allergies! Ratz! Llenny is beautiful too, but he could certainly benefit from a bright orange scarf! Would he consent to wearing one, do you think? If you think so, you could probably pick up some of the florescent orange stuff available in the stores and fashion something for that handsome dude!

    • Teresa November 16, 2015 at 5:46 pm #

      I do have quite a few varieties with no fragrance added. 😉 I can’t touch Llenny. He’s social, but there’s no way I can catch him.

      • Jeanne November 18, 2015 at 11:36 pm #

        My daughter suggested a walk by spray paint with bright orange paint! She says it’ll come off in time!

      • Teresa November 19, 2015 at 6:50 am #

        Not sure he’d like that, and I’d hate for him to try to clean it out and eat paint.

      • Jeanne November 20, 2015 at 8:43 am #

        Ooops! We didn’t think he’d try to clean it off, himself! Forget that idea! We’ll just pray that he stays safe!

    Hunters nearby is bound to make one uneasy. Beautiful display of soaps!
