Spring is in the air......

For us in north America the weather is finally shaping up for spring. The daffodils are
out and the birds are singing. This means most of you will be out in your gardens like
me getting everything ready, planting and cleaning up from all the winter grub that fell.

I have new planter boxes all built and filled with good soil that I will be filling up soon.
I have not decided what I want in these planter boxes so I am heading to the nursery
this week end to see what catches my eye. I prefer perennials as investment plants
but I don't want anything that will get too big. Something with pretty summer flowers
maybe? Got any suggestions?

I also have my eye on a decorative arched metal bridge for my garden but I am not sure
it would look right since I don't have any water features except my birdbath which really
doesn't count! (but the birds love it)

Here's a picture from last summer of my front yard.

I'll share more as soon as I get something done. Enjoy spring!

Rain brings new beginnings & soap

So you really want to know what I've been doing all these month when I am not creating molds and casting cement? I've been making soap! Yup, it's the truth. It only seemed natural since I love bath products. What fun I have been having. And like many of you I get to buy some awesome molds (since I do not make soap molds). I wait patiently for the mail lady in hopes of something new each week. I currently have my soaps for sale in a local massage clinic and hair salon. Soon I will offer them for sale on my own website but for now if you would like to see or purchase any they are available through Etsy Heavenly Scents Soaps and soon online at my website, and visit on my newest blog Heavenly Scents Soaps where you can just keep up with my "other personality".'s a tease to my soaps. They are made from All Natural ingredients, natural essential oils or natural fragrance oils. Enjoy!
