I’m squeaky clean!

Or I should be…I love SOAP!

One of my favorite stores is downsizing and having a big sale. Magpies is going from 2 locations to 1 and everything in their store is 40% off! Time to shop!

I bought these precious little chicks and this beautiful cube of vanilla honey soap!


I decided to enjoy it right here by my computer for awhile!


I also won these soaps and a bottle of lotion in a giveaway by Homemaker on a Dime.


The soaps are made by Rebecca at Soap Delicatessen! Visit her blog HERE!


Look at these wonderful scents!

A special THANK YOU to these sweet ladies!

And Bath and Body has a new hand soap…


fresh lavender…perfect for my bathroom!


And I don’t want to leave out my Lavender Dreams soap that Tracy..the Screaming Sardine …and Sunburnt Cow Handmade Shop(don’t you LOVE the name of her blogs)…made just for me! I brought one bar with me to the condo! I better use it sparingly!


Do you have a favorite soap? What scent do you like best?

I mostly use Dove Sensitive Skin because my dermatologist says it is best for sensitive skin. But I must say that I love Mistral's soaps, and one of my favorites scents is Japanese Apricot :D

Congrats on your wins!!!

Hello Diane I love handmade soaps and body butters.
Lovely pictures, my favorite scent is pink sugar.


Cindy said...

Well, I'm going to have to go to the mall and get some of that Lavender Soap! I wish B&B had a lemon line. I remember Fresh Lemon from when I was a teenager. Loved it!

You commented on my blog that you liked the embroidered sachet. I am going to be opening an Etsy shop sometime soon, and that will be one of the things I will be selling. More info later.

I also use Dove for sensitive skin but my favorite scented one is pink grapefruit from the Body Shop..

You look as if you're all set for soap. Did your mom used to give you the cute little hostess sets from Avon when you were a little girl? Mine did. I think that's why I still love soaps.

Right now I'm loving Cape Cod Cranberry, though I do have a favorite kitchen soap called "Coffee Grounds" because it has coffee grounds in it.

Yes indeed I LOVE handmade soaps and have a couple favorite flavors: Honey almond, roses, lemon are just a few !
Nice wins!

Oh how I love fun soaps too but like Ricki and laurie, I use Dove. Reading your post makes me want to take a walk on the screaming sardine side.

The honey soap sounds wonderful!

Screaming Sardine said...

Beautiful soaps and lotions you have there, Diane. I bet they all smell yummy.

As to my Lavender Vanilla Dreams soap, I'm so glad you like it! I actually am using a sliver of it from the batch I made you. I really like it - hehe. I usually like food smelling soaps, esp. pomegranate. I like a scent I created called Spiced Cranberry Espresso, but alas, that's not skin safe, so I have to have it in a sachet.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Diane, I love those chicks! I would have definitely bought them if I saw them fo sale cute! :)

I love Orange Bergamot scented soap the best, closely followed by lavender. I buy it at Bath and Body Shop.

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

I love lavender and have just hung some bunches of fresh lavender in the bathrooms.

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

I LOVE soaps and lavender is my favorite scent, though jasmine is a close second. It looks like you've got a good supply thanks to your win! Congrats!!!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

LAVENDER IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE! But you mention VANILLA? How could I resist that! But I have to say that ANYTHING LAVENDER gets my senses so happy! Thank you dearest for coming to visit me!!!! I am glad you caught the stardust....enjoy, Anita

missing moments said...

I am so boring when it comes to soap ... boring ole soap in our household! I need to spice it up a bit after seeing all this!

KAT said...

I'm not as up to snuff on this scented soaps idea. I'll have to try some lavender scented ... that appeals to me the most of all the ones mentioned so far.

LaelShine said...

You are soap rich!
My fave is rosemary licorice,yum!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Wow, you better get busy washing alright!! I love vanilla!


Della said...

I hopped over to Rebecca's and saw a papaya mango that looks nice.

Love that you have Lavender soap! You should!

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

Wow looks like you hit the jackpot. It all looks wonderful!!

Ginger Zuck said...

I love soaps and yours sound and look wonderful. I make my own soaps also with a gentle scrubber in the middle. I have very dry skin and they help so much! My favorite scents are any kind of citrus, they just smell so clean. My second is mint, I grow mint in my garden and it is so calming! I am growing Lavender in my garden also, I'm hoping it does well so I can give it a try!

Vintage Gal said...

Oh My ~ I am as bad as you are ~ I have a thing for soaps and one of my favourites is made by a blogfriend ~ Frog goes to Market ~ she makes a dreamy lavender goats milk soap ~ I LOVE it ;-)

Freckled Hen said...

I love those little chicks! On special days I use Nantucket Briar soap from Crabtree and Evelyn, but other than that I've been using Irish Spring every day of my life! Even on my face! This makes my sisters yell at me.

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

How cute are those little chicks! Love 'em! Hmmm, I would have to say that gardenia is probably my favorite soap fragrance!

Diane Writes said...

Hello Diane! Lucky you!!! I love the prizes too. You must have done something good to be rewarded. Regarding your question, I use either Dove or Ivory all my life. I love the clean and refreshing scent it brings. Both are also mild enough not to irritate my skin.

Fresh Garden said...

Absolutely fantastic!
A nice post (with great pics too)!
Keep it coming!

Joy said...

Ohh..I love lavendar too. I will have to get some of that soap. Have a great weekend :)

Cindy Adkins said...

Oh, I love everything and it's from people I think the world of!!!

P.S. Yes, there were keys! lol

Kasia said...

Any french milled soap is superb! Scented ones are so good! I have a store that has soap looking like the most delicious cupcakes! (Ans they smell like it too!) I love the post, all these soaps look sweet! :)


Angela McInnis said...
