Soap Schmoap

I have had a blast today with Faux soap. I wanted a basket full of sweet little wrapped things to sit on the back of Les Toilettes. I dug into this dresser for stuff and paid a visit to my computer file of graphics.My file is full thanks to Graphics Fairy! (I know I've mentioned her like 20 times in 3 days, no she's not paying me, I am just giddy over her website!!!)
I used a hand saw and cut some wood into soap sized blocks to wrap. I also hacked down lots of my lavender and sage and dried it in the oven. Boy did my house smell LOVE-UH-LEE! Hubby asked "WHAT?! is that SMELL!?! Herbs???"
Uh-huh!
Okay- an oven full of sage and lavender CAN be a wee bit overpowering...

I heated up that glue gun of mine, threaded the machine, printed, cut, glued, and made a mess! BUT had a blast.
The end result of my rummaging, sawing and sewing?






I love me some Eiffel towers! The sachet smells heavenly. Maybe it will help hide the scent of 3 boys and what they leave behind in a bathroom.

You may just find some of these on my etsy shop in the next week...

I also have been working on other little bits and pieces for my bathroom... A towel rack,( I DO have one of these in my Etsy shop!) a sign, ... Can't wait to show you the end result!!!! And the shower curtain that ALMOST won! Oh- Can't wait to reveal that! This can hold you over for now!
