I hope everyone who celebrates Christmas had a lovely one! I took a week to catch up on fulfilling orders and just being with my family. Over the past week my DH and I went to see "The Golden Compass" (loved it, despite some bad reviews I've read) and today I took myself to a solo matinee of "Atonement." Oh my goodness, that movie lived up to the book, which I read long ago when it first came out. Pure sensual, romantic and tragic indulgence.
I added a wonderful new soap to my shop today, Lemon Sugar and Candied Violets! Sounds weird, but smells beautiful and it's tinted yellow naturally by steeping annatto seeds in the olive oil that I use to make the soap.
