Christmas in the Soap Room

23 Nov

I am really busy trying to get my soap room ready to open for small business Saturday and the next few Saturdays leading up to Christmas.


I have some of my dad’s wooden trucks.  Some are cribbage boards, and some are just toys.


Of course, every Iowa farm kid loves fences to play with.


We’ve already had orders for the yard Yahtzee games.


My mom made chess pieces for the boards my dad made.


I have my sister’s stools here.  I also made skirts for  my shelves to hide all the stuff I need to store beneath them.


I have my five new soaps set out.


I also dug out the little molded soaps in the gift boxes I made.


I made a batch of jam and a batch of jelly today to restock.  I’m still planning on baking on Friday to have sweet breads and other goodies.


I’m amazed at how much I’ve managed to get into this one little room!

I do hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my sidebar.
