Product Review Featuring Southern Country Creations

Look at what I got in the mail!! Doesn't this look like a party in a box?I was excited when I smelled the fresh clean scent. I couldn't wait to try out my new soap! This handmade artist is named Dee Bibb a charmingly warm friendly lady from Mississippi:)
My  soap was safely bundled and wrapped in bubble wrap, everything about this box said love:)
Each bars was wrapped in bright tissue paper and tied with ribbon, like little presents! I even got a little something extra:) That extra something turned out to be a bar of her special Shea Butter shampoo.

For my shower I chose to try the Rosemary Mint, it was a wonderful experience. The soap produced a rich creamy lather, and rinsed off clean, my skin felt refreshed and moist not dried out.
I tried out the new shampoo bar too and it gets a thumbs up from me. I shampooed as usual and used my homemade vinegar conditioner,towel dried and styled. My hair was very manageable and that is saying something since I have naturally curly hair that is turning silver and is usually hard to control.
I give her a total thumbs up :) 
I am a fan for sure, but don't just take my word for it. You can find her here Southern Country Creations Her shop is filled with handmade items like crotchet, and jewelry as well as wonderful natural chemical free soaps!
Don't forget to mention you saw the review on my blog:) 
God Bless you!

Legend of the Buffalo Stone "Deliverance"


                                   " Deliverance"




The focal of this necklace is Buffalo stone or Ammonite. It is  a  fossilized shell resembling a buffalo hump. It was thought sacred by the Blackfoot tribe,and was said to be used to call Buffalo to the hunters in ancient times. The stone was also said to bring attention to itself by chirping  like a bird!


The old legend of the first Buffalo Stone inspired this necklace and the name "Deliverance."  The legend tells of a woman from a starving Blackfoot tribe who goes to gather wood and hears singing, when she followed the sound she found this stone. The stone spoke to her,and taught her a song. She carried it back to her tribe and they followed the stones instructions and the Buffalo were lead back to them,they were delivered from starvation.

Another tempting soap I discovered that goes on my list is from MyLovi
Natural HandMilled Lemon Verbena sounds fragrant, I love old fashioned simple scents don't you?

I stumbled on this luxurious sounding Organic Wildflower Honey Sugar Scrub while on my quest for bubbles:) It goes on my "To Try" list. It is from Essensu

Look @ These fun Earrings!

My Hubby was going to throw these away and the shiny lens caught my eye. If you have read anything I have written you know I am a recycling queen. I love to re-purpose, if I can use it I do!
I love shiny things, they make my heart beat a little faster and I get mesmerized:) I knew right away these would make cool earrings.

You can make these with just 5-6 inches of 20 ga wire, I used silver, but copper ,brass, or bronze would be great. Oh and any reflective sunglass lens, do NOT tear up a good pair to make these. Ask around if you don't have a pair, someone will have an old pair to give you.

I used my torch to heat a large safety pin, then pierced the plastic lens, I inserted the wire, made a swirl to cover the hole, push the wire through to the back, then I made a wrapped loop. Attach a jump ring to hang it on your ear wire (I make all my own) you can use a purchased one if you like.

5 minute earrings nearly free! You can decorate them anyway you can think of, have fun making your own sunglass earrings:)

These are light, swing-y and fun fun fun! I hope you will try these and come back to tell me how yours  turned out. Thanks for reading my blog, till next time!
