No more soap sales + being copied

I have discontinued soap sales, at least temporarily. I have had a lot of fun over 18 years making soap and meeting so many other interesting people. Thank you everyone .
Maybe I will get back to it again later, but meanwhile I will be making only for personal use and gifting..

this one is goats milk made with mixed oils and looking pretty pale which i like.
sometimes the soap is a bit darker..depends at which temperatures i work

a day with steam trains...........start at the bottom of the story!!












carrriages on arrival of the train.
the steam train is right at the front of the 10 carriages
and a looooooooooooong line of tanks waiting for the steam train to pass by

and across the road was a bit of old and new juxtaposed

and the pretty station courtyard

and saw the wheels and connections of some freight tanks

things i did last night and this morning to avoid househwork

some jacaranda seed pods and a macadamia nut shell. the cokatoos pick them off the tree,
break them up and spit them out




made and cut some is plain white goats milk and coconut milk
which has gone a very pale cream.
some is the palest yellow with a white top and green blobs.
and some is pale green with a tiny overpour of white

essentially there is little between them colour wise

picked a few of the endless gardinias that will flower this year.
dont know why the bushes are so prolific....but they are. bit like the jacaranda trees
