Fresh & Clean!

Everyone needs hand cream, and we have one for everyone! Finally back in our shop we are featuring our Fresh & Clean Hand & Body Cream. This hand cream is great for teachers, kids, guys, frequent hand washers. All of our hand & body creams have the same base. They are chock full of wonderful skin loving butters and oils. They are rich and velvety, and a little goes a long way. They even last through hand washings!

The essential oil blend in this formula gives it a fresh scent, and they are said to be nature’s antibacterial busters! When antibacterial soap started to boom I was always skeptical. I remembered in biology learning about good vs. bad bacteria…that you actually need some bacteria. Now that exact thing is all over the internet. Some even say that we are lowering our childrens defenses with the stuff. However, when you are sitting in an office or classroom filled with the sniffles you want some kind of defense; this one is made by Mother Nature herself.

We aren't saying that this is the "cure" (we all know mother nature can throw us a curveball...snow in April?!?!?!) but it is a good alternative to all those chemicals we tend to slather all over ourselves!

My trip to the local hardware store...

I can't say that I like the local hardware store is now a huge conglomerate...but I do appreciate the 1/2 price seed sale...and the bargain bin of leftover lumber!

For the low price of about $15 I got seeds and the makings of a raised "salad garden"!!! Can't go wrong there!!!

I spent my afternoon clearing out my little shade garden and planting wildflowers. I also planted my peas! Last year it was a hopefully this year will be better.

Tho...clearing out my garden always leaves me thinking...did I pull out weeds, or something that I had bought the year before and painstakingly planted...hoping for a resurgence the year to follow...I guess we will never know.

Perfecting my space...

It is a work in progress...and I am sure always will be! But I have been working on my space recently. Painting, rearranging, beautifying! My workspace is my basement. I love it because it is doesn't interfere with daily life. I can have projects going on and still make dinner or have company. So, I thought I would give a little insight into what has gone on in these last couple weeks:

I cleared everything out...and painted my walls and my shelf above my table. My husband made me a great work table...and my supply shelf is a sample from his job!

That still left me with a lot of stuff...stuff that didn't have a place to call home

So, I did some dearest friend made me a curtain! and I put down an area rug! I also added a bunch of artwork! Curtains and rugs sure do change the feel of a space! And now I am back to work...

...what a mess I can make!

Upcoming Farmers Market!

Everyday that passes I get a bit more farmers market starts on June 6th! It will be the first that I have participated in, and it is every Saturday until October 17th!!! I am afraid that I will have too much stock, or not enough and I won't be able to keep up. And now I want to add another market on Sundays. Am I crazy?

The biggest question is:
will I make enough to support the habit that it is obviously going to create?!?!
