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
I have sold all but a few bars of castile and goats milk.
new soaps will be ready in about 10 days as i did a few lots today with deep water discount
to have them ready early. i even did one log as a rather pretty non fragranced one
.... for those of us who like pretty but dont want a fragrance .
will make more soap tomorrow if the dentist dosnt traumatise me too much.
today i did Vaniglia de madagascar...and went mad with the amount of fragrance .
it is one of Scent Works stronger fragrances so i will have a powerful vanilla fragrance on my hands!!!
another was Scents works "Provence" and the other fragranced one was Scentworks Pink Peony.
can you tell i like to use Scent works???
i had a couple of soaps i really liked........a creamy rose which was regular rose but done in a pale orangy yellow, and a mix of lemon myrtle and a flower fragrance (the latter again from Scent-works).
they too are all gone
A four year part of my history was spent there doing my hospital based nursing training.
it is so enormously changed with some of the fascinating old buildings long gone.
the main two pavillions...one named for Prince Albert and one for Queen Victoria remain but not in the format i knew.
both pavillions were being renovated but i grabbed a few pics anyway.
the first pic shown here is the "A block" with Albert watching over all that occurs in the very busy streets around
the main entry remains as it was but with the addition of some seating and a less austere atmosphere. the stained glass windows
interesting now as they ever were.
i couldnt photograph it as it was covered in scaffolding
Victoria has her own window ...pictured here
this is Victoria's side of the building with her on top in all her green verdis glory . dont know what the rooms are now, but this part of the building was referred to as the "Vic block" and was full of patients, while the block at the right hand end was the pathology labs
despite that dog and i went to the local school for her usual walk......this time making sure she didnt get to eat any of the scraps that are forever lying around from the kids meals. she is going to have to stick to her low fat diet very rigidly
the sky was blood red as the sun set, so just in case no one believes me here are too many photos of the sun setting coloured red!!!
they are all taken at maxium zoom with a shaky hand.... so are not the best.
the city was covered in smoke and in some of these pictures of the schook grounds you can see smoke filtering thro the trees.
i finally got photos of a couple of the sheep that live in the school grounds.
and a few more of dog .......showing her new slim self and looking much more healthy
this is dog today ....pretty in pink in blue and not sure just how much food she actually wants
on last friday she suddenly became scarily sick late at night so i had to take her to an all night emergency vet. she came home the next morning and hung in ok for the rest of the the day, drinking minimally. sunday morning i took her to the local vet twice for pain meds . at 7 pm he soooo kindly came in especially for her and admitted her with an IV overnight as she was in so much pain and couldnt really drink enough. i hated to leave her by herself . next morning i went to visit her in her cage and it broke my heart.......and hers that she had to stay there she came home Monday night and went back for another check up again today after a test meal of plain rice the way she is trying to attack my food tonight i think she has turned the corner. by the time she eats a little bit again tomorrow morning she will have had very little over 5 days. pancreatitis is not a nice disease. special thanks to Matt at the Thornleigh Vetinary Hospital for care above and beyond the expected
this was taken on saturday as she lay around very sad and sorry for herself
