SPRING! FLING! GIVEAWAY!

Farmhouse Fresh™ Lavender Oatmeal Soap
Hand crocheted dish/wash cloth

I can't help myself!
I am giddy with excitement!
The rain we had yesterday has washed away ALL of the snow and I can see bits of green coming up here and there.

So...to celebrate I am having a small giveaway!

I have a 4+oz. bar of homemade Lavender Oatmeal soap and a hand crocheted dish/wash cloth.
The soap is made right here in my little farmette kitchen, so I can proudly say...
Made in the U.S.A.!

The dish cloth is also hand crocheted by ME! from 100% U.S.A. grown cotton and made by our good neighbors, Canada.

NOT included in the giveaway is the twiggy birds nest and the lavender (greening up in the courtyard perennial garden) it is nestled in!

To enter simply leave a comment.
No linking, no posting about the giveaway on your own blog, no fussing....
Just leave a comment between now and Sunday, oh, say around 6PM, and I'll announce the winner asap!


Sorry...due to the high cost of shipping pret' near anything these days, the giveaway is limited to the United States.

My Farmhouse Fresh™ soaps ARE for sale for those who are interested!
Each bar is hand poured and hand cut and will weigh at least 4oz and sells for $3.50 plus shipping. Orders of more than 6 bars sell for $3.00 each.

And please, keep in mind, these bars are rustic! There will always be some irregularity in the cutting of the soap! Cause they're hand made!

Fragrances include: Amazing Grace, Citrus Cilantro, Lavender Oatmeal, and Pure. (no fragrance added, jest' plain soap!)

Ingredients will always include: olive oil, coconut oil, canola oil, distilled water, and lye. Just like great-grandma used to make. And they may include essential oils, fragrance, organic oats and local honey.

So...whatcha waitin' for?
Throw your name in and while you're at it, tell me what's poppin' up in YOUR yards!

xoxo,
Cindy
Pin It!

I think this would be a good opportunity for me to try this first and then I may consider making it. I would love to see, smell, touch (but no eating!) this!

How sweet to have a giveaway! I can almost smell that lavender soap!!

Here the daffadils are about ready to bloom, and the tulips are coming up, and things are beginning to get greener and buds are popping out on the shubbery and trees!

I would love to try your soap. I planted lavender last year and hope that it comes back this spring. It is a wonderful scent.

Old Centennial Farmhouse said...

Gosh, Cyn, what a sweet giveaway! I am enjoying this brief taste of spring, too. This week in my front garden, I spotted snowdrops, crocus and some daffodil shoots, and some of the hosta closest to the house, too! AMAZING!

And the buds on the trees are very swollen and just waiting for the rain and sun to coax them out of their little winter coverings! SO EXCITING!
XOXO

Count me in, too. I have read your blog for quite awhile-especially about your knee surgery; which I'm going to have in June. Not looking forward to it but am looking forward to walking without pain. You are doing so great, am happy for you.

Take care - Blessings!

Susan said...

First time at your blog, enjoyed my visit. Would love to be entered into the giveaway.

Have a good weekend.

Faith said...

That is a beautiful little gift package. I have not tried knitting a wash cloth yet, though I might soon. I finally went beyond the regular knit stitch this month, and I am working on my first official project that is not a simple scarf. It's a shawl. A big scarf. LOL

Michelle (She Looketh Well) said...

You have got to be kidding me! I haven't been able to check blogs and I missed this one! Okay, the really fun thing is that just Saturday Brian said I should see if you have anymore soaps, as he loved the oatmeal one! I said, shoot, I am buying them from the health food store anyway, might as well see if Cindy will make us some. And here you make them and sell them right here!!! I am so excited.

We want some, six would be great!!! CAn they be the oatmeal kind? You gave us two different kinds, the oatmeal one help up better and felt more substantial.

Brian wants to know if you have any 'man flavors' LOL he means scents. ;-)

We will talk soon!
Love ya
