Treat for You (Giveaway)

Life is full these days - full of summer happenings! We are thankful for our fresh eggs coming in and the produce from our small garden. Since we just moved in this year we decided against having a full on garden for canning. We have more of a garden for snacking and enjoying: tomatoes, squash, fresh flowers, and some snips of the young herbs.

2 blueberry pies were baked yesterday as the result of a 2nd blueberry picking venture. It is exciting to be able to pick a gallon of berries without a baby strapped to my back; maybe next year we will pick enough to put some in the freezer. Next year my girl probably will not have a repeat broken leg, so she will be added to the picking ranks (currently myself and Jacob).

Homeschool ideas are swirling. This is our first year to be "official" for the state, so we have forms to fill. Textbook order is in the works.

With so much going on, I am thankful for small moments to enjoy my handmade items. I love to start a fresh bar of soap in the shower - my favorites usually include at least a bit of lavender. I love to light one of my beeswax candles while having a few quiet knitting moments. My kids have been having fun picking the colors for their new washcloths.

I want to share something with you! Please check out my shop to let me know something you would love to try!

Giveaway winner will be picked, randomly and on Friday, from the comments on this post.


  1. Hi, Sarah! You're doing a lot of the same stuff I'm doing these days :) Esp. homeschool planning. Just went over and checked out your store. I'm torn between your body butter (which looks fabulous, and I'd like to see how those ingredients feel) or maybe a wash cloth. But whatever you chose would be lovely for your giveaway :) Have a great day!

  2. Hi Sarah...your days sound like mine. It's hot here this week, so we're up early and about to head out to do some garden work before the sun is up over the ridge of the mountains to heat things up. Your soap is wonderful, my friend. I have had my eye on your beeswax candles since I love the fragrance. :) Would you mind if I share about your giveaway on my blog?

  3. Hi Sarah! I don't think I could pick just one. I would love to try the shaving bar, the shampoo/body bar and the lotion bar. So many great choices in your shop! Homeschool planning is underway here as well. :)

  4. I would like to try the exfoliating scrub! Work at The Compound has left my skin less than desirable. I got word of your site from Lisa at Happy in Dole Valley.

  5. Hi Sarah. How exciting to be preparing for your first official year of homeschooling; I am preparing for my second to last year. Homeschooling has been amazing for my family and I hope for you too.
    I love your shop, and I think my favorite is the body butter due to the fact the I have such dry summer skin.

  6. Hi Sarah -

    My you have been busy - my favorite bath soap scent is the rose one. It makes my bathroom smell yummy. I can't believe that you are talking school already. I know Zoe will be excited to start preschool again. We've been having so much fun this summer but it feels like it is going too fast. Slow down!!! LOL! Take care and hope to see you soon.

  7. Hi Sarah!

    Thanks for giving me the chance to win! My favorite item in your shop is the lip balm.

    Thanks again! :)

  8. I'm glad you enjoyed picking blueberries without a baby attached to your back! Hope you enjoyed eating the pies. I'd love to try out the creamy, all-natural body butter. Lisa from Dole Valley sent me here, but we also have a mutual friend in PA, and I've purchased some of your items at Wolf Creek Yarns.

  9. Hi Sarah, I found your wonderful blog through Lisa at Happy in Dole Valley. Your Sugar Scrub sounds delightful. Thanks for hosting a giveaway.

  10. Hi Sarah, Glad to have found your blog! I would love to try your handmade soap, looks amazing! Thanks for hosting a giveaway!

  11. Hi Sarah!
    Thanks so much for the giveaway! I would love to try the Lip Balm!


  12. Hi Sarah, we love all of your scented soaps! They make wonderful fresheners in our clothes drawers and linen closets until we are ready yo break it another bar. Root beer was a big hit with my preteen boys!


Thanks for visiting. I love to hear from you; comment away!
