Soap for a Shower??? Of course!

Well, what a wonderful idea for a bridal shower!

A bar of HAPPY HERBS SOAP, for all of Kelly's guests!
And what a great variety to choose from.

And since we just had a lovely wedding for George and Jo here at the gardens of Two Crow Cottage, I am sure these herbal delights will get this Bride off to a sweet start!

Garden Wedding

It was the perfect day for a wedding at the lovely gardens of  

The grape covered gazebo was a wonderful spot for the altar, 
as the bride walked over rose petals and lavender buds.
Of course, rosemary for remembrance of this special day
 with white ribbon tied in knots and bayberry leaves for 
a simply lovely altar.
The iron heart shaped garden gate was stunning with 
hydrangeas, spearmint, rose of Sharon and shiny magnolia leaves.  All so sweet...
Just like the happy couple, George and Jo!

(the photos of the event are private...sorry)
But I can tell you that not only were the minister and his wife thrilled with the venue,
the Bride and Groom and witnesses were stunned at it's beauty and aroma!

Well the downed tree from last year, well seasoned, has been hauled off by some friends who will be toasty-cozy warm this winter using their wood stove.  We are both equally pleased with this transaction...I have more room to garden, and they have a nice woodpile!

And since old man winter can't decide if he wants to snow or rain, I am enjoying some Double Inspiration for 2017 with 2 tarot decks...The Druid Plant Oracle and Crow's Magick a gift from my friend Vicki who is always outofhand. The annual January shape-shifting of the soap room is almost complete, and with 3 of my incense crows burning, Blessed Be, Friendship and Prosperity, I am enjoying myself by my own fire...immensely!

The seed catalogs are in, and since I saw a flock of robins in the yard, I am hoping that Spring will be right on time this year...and no April Foolishness with a snowstorm, like last year!  But even though it is in the 40's right now, old man winter is lingering on...we still have a long way to go!

My name is Nina...thanks for stopping by.  Check out the post by Arty Tea Party for our featured artist of the month...Sandy "Rosebud" Scarano!
