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..

28 October 2017....Unfortunately someone has chosen to copy/paste huge amounts from my old web pages....product information, receipes, soap making methods eg...and place this on the domain name I let go a few months ago. They can buy the domain name but that does not give access to my copyright material or the use of my registered business name.
If you go to that page it is not me you might be dealing with. The person hides behind a "disposable" email address

some things were shiny today

reflection of my camera lens and i in the side of a tea pot

detail on a family teapot

reflection of camera and i ,when i realised that i was able to see myself in the back of a beaten up
stainless spoon just taken from the dishwasher and just sitting in the cutlery holder.
you can even see on the side, a few logs of soap that are there waiting to be cut.
the generic dishwashing stuff must work well because those spoons are very very very old and beaten up :-)

sons car has been rained on tonight

a family tea pot

some pancake and some soap

i messed with some photos of dog before i made the pancakes and while i was waiting for the soap to get released

these soapas are sort of damp and shiny because they have just come out of the freezer.
they are soaps where i have tested new fragrances and have used some old plastic moulds .
which need to be frozen to release the soap

i am on a pancake jag. havnt had any in ages . maple syrup !!!!!!!

some pages from my great great grandfathers day book

He was a surveyor in Derbyshire and the book records details of peoples crops,
measurements of fields, steps to a dance, maps of the local area and handy hints like waterproof for shoes and how to make tracing paper
