Goat's Milk + Roses

goat's milk + roses = a fragrant 5 minute get-away.
I love all the scents of goat's milk soap
...they take me away to a virtual spa...
{me in the late '70's with one of my in-law's goats, soap from Soaps and Sundries}
Rose with rose petals
Lily of the Valley
are my favorite soap scents.

milk + orange
Orange scent wakes me up!

This comes in handy especially after making 200 mini meatballs this weekend!
{freezing them for the wedding shower}
They'll be in a crock pot of sauce!

Now, that's a different kind of aroma!
...that spells A M O R E 

I hope everyone has a great week!

~ Joy to you all ~

Brings back such great memories. Simple things, tender moments a flock loved by the shepherd, who will give everything to find a lost little one.
Love U ~Chris

Love the 70's were stunning! I love handmade soaps. I lean more towards the natural scents...citrus, oatmeal, vanilla and stay away from the flowery smells (except for lavendar). I bought 6 bars at a local art show over the weekend. My bathroom smells so good!

Goats milk? I have discovered can have a beautiful scent.
Enjoy this time as you treasure all these memories.

That is an adorable photo of you in the 70's Maria - you look like a Flower Child! I see that preparations for the upcoming wedding continue. What fun! You'll need to soak in an aroma of goat's milk soap to calm your nerves...

Maria, I'm with you about goat milk soap! And handmade soap is such a lovely treat!

Just to let you know I am posting the cupcake recipe and tutorial for Foodie Friday. They are really very easy to make. They just take time.
Thanks for the sweet comments. I hope you post your daughter's shower too!

Hi, Maria,
I loved seeing you in the 70's with that cute little goat. I feel like I can almost smell that goat's milk soap if I take a deep enough breath!! You have been busy getting ready for the wedding shower. I know those meatballs will be delicious in their yummy sauce. Enjoy your week, sweet friend! Vicki

I bought some goat milk soap last year for the first time and it was heavenly--

You are so cute in the picture. I love love love your hair. When I get to heaven, I am going to ask God for hair like that.

Oh, the meatballs--isn't it a thrill getting to do stuff like that for your daughter's wedding? That is the stuff that makes life so special.

Enjoy them all,
