spring is only a date on the calendar here...


rosemary/nettle shampoo bars in the works 

My dear friend Nicole and I have been soaping!
Well, Nicole has a soaping business, and I have been hangin' with her and getting inspired.
Two weeks ago we worked on a double batch of rosemary/nettle shampoo bars, and i must say...
the house smells heavenly!

Also in the works is a new deodorant recipe we have been tweaking.
I think we almost have it right where we want it...



 Nicole's apothacary

Inspiring!
Nicci likes to work with herbs and natures own ingredients....
clays, teas, and essential oils.
Coincidentally, so do I!


 Motherwort

Yeah...so much for spring here in west Michigan.
Rain, cold, snow, sleet, hail, more rain, more cold..and a itty bitty peek at the sun.
And that was just yesterday.
OK....exaggerating just a teensy bit.
There was actually no hail yesterday.
The rest is all truth.
In spite of that, I went outside yesterday with my camera to see what was what.
Pretty sure this is motherwort.
What I'm not totally sure of is what to do with it.
I mean, I know what it can be used for...
just not sure I'm goin' there.


your guess is as good as mine!

My mystery clump(s)
Scattered through a portion of the back yard are these clumps of somethin' or other.
Definitely not quackgrass or crabgrass.
Perhaps some type of hyacinth?
I guess time will tell, cause I sure as shootin' don't know right now.
Hopefully we will get a glimpse of spring before summer arrives!

Meanwhile, I'll just keep on...

Loving Jesus,
Loving people,

Cindy

Really want to make some soap when the weather stays a bit warmer. It is on my list to try. Do you suppose I will be hooked?

Oh my, I'm totally jealous of your friend's shelves of goodies!! I've just started soaping & I absolutely love it! Does your friend have a website or a blog?

Someone told me Lowe's still sells lye but one has to ask for it. I'm going to find out if that's true 'cause I'd love to make soap again. maybe -grin-.
No really, would love to make it but don't need it...quite yet.
Thanks again, Cindy!

Hello Friend~
It is 85 degrees here in Missouri but we have snow in the forecast for Thursday and Friday. I think spring is having a hard time this year.

No winter lasts forever and
No spring skips her turn.

My Grandmother would say this often ~ lets just hope she is not wrong this year!

Victoria said...

Two comments really.. one, how does a shampoo bar work? Just lather and put the lather in your hair?

Secondly.. We had those little clumps of grassy stuff in our MI garden, too. I think eventually they sprouted little flowers, like a lily of the valley I think, though they may have been purple.

Just a quick note to tell the general public about a great man who brought my husband back to me after 11 years, his name is Dr. OKO. My husband was snatched from me by another woman when I went to see my sick mother, I came home to meet the house empty my husband was not at home, he wan’t picking call none will he call back. I was left alone with our 4 years old baby, he was gone for 11 years but just a month ago a friend of mine called me to tell about oko and she gave me his contact and I did contacted him and he told me my husband was with another woman. Also, he said he will bring back my husband within a few days, I thought it was a joke but behold my husband came home begging for forgiveness just as OKO promised. Off course I forgave my husband everything became normal even more that it was before. You too can be helped by him if interested through: okotemple@live.com or call/whatsapp: +2348131684022.
