So I dug through my soap recipe box and then old pics on my computer and I found it! To make things even better I had all the Essential oils I used the last time, specifically Lavender, Lemongrass, Bergamot, Amyris, and Sweet Orange.
I colored it with Spirulina from Bramble Berry (you might recall I was asked by the company a few weeks to test some of their products. You can read about that HERE) as well as Wheat Grass Powder, Nettle Leaf Powder, Indigo Powder and Titanium Dioxide. The Indigo was blue when I poured it in the mold but by morning had turned a dark deep green.
And so Bluegrass no more and instead I re-christened the soap "Galway Bay" Galway is the third largest city in the Republic of Ireland, curled up next to Galway Bay on the Rive Corrib. Known for its great music and art such as the world renown Claddaugh Ring, it's a city that embraces old traditions and newest creative venues for those who make their living in pristine crystal, wondrous stone walls and modern design.
My soap is not nearly as adventurous as Galway but the colors are very close to the waves of Galway Bay that rush past the Aran Islands to eventually wash over the land on the far East cost of the US.
I love the city of Galway
I really like this new soap dish too. Found a few days ago while investigating an estate salvage store in Campaign, I was thrilled to find two of these. I was even more thrilled to score them for only $10 each. They have multiple layers of paint and their petite size is very attractive. Anyone seen this type of soap dish before? Would love to hear what you might know.
PS. The tightly woven, high end dishcloth in my soap photos was created by blog buddy Martha Witcher of Thistle Rose Weaving. Her work is amazing, not like that cheap crapola one finds in the mass produced Walmart World. Her weaving is the purest type of art. Any item placed on a piece of her work is instantly transformed into a solid piece of everlasting beauty.
I wonder what she would charge to weave me a dress ? Nothing formal, a simple A-Line would suffice.
