yummy upstate find: gotsoap.com

shelter_gotsoap.jpg

At last fall’s Sheep & Yarn festival, I bought a few bars of the most yummy smelling soap from a stand called Got Soap. The flavors included cinnamon & oatmeal, spiced milk & honey, and thyme. Each one is amazingly fragrant and lathers up so richly. We’ve been using them exclusively in our upstate shower. We’re finally on our last bar so it’s time to place an order via their website. I will probably order a few extra bars because this stuff will make the perfect hostess or housewarming gift. Always good to have a few of those handy, I find! And here’s a great deal: If you tell them that you found the site through this blog mention, you’ll get a free bar. Check it out! — Angela M.

beth's etsy find: the cutest homemade dolls

Leigh’s first birthday is this week, and I wanted to get her something really special. Since her older sister steals all of her toys, I decided I would buy her one very special gift and make sure it stays hers. The one perfect gift? A handmade, natural and organic doll from Bamboletta. The bonus? I think it looks like her. Green eyes, crazy brown hair, and deliciously cute. — Beth J.
