A walk in the woods…. stumble upon natures goods

 

The green earth has always graced us with an abundance of useful and nourishing resources, and our ancestors went straight to them for a variety of uses.   Long before our time and the ease of running to a superstore, generations of people were well cared for by Mother nature.

Christmas gift splurge……

IMG_1668

Trying to shop for the perfect gift at Christmas for my husband is more difficult for me than  the “Secret Santa” game.   This year since we are now “empty nesters” I decided to get really extravagant.  Since he does not care for caviar, Brazilian coffee or gourmet cheese from southern Italy it took some thought.  Easy enough,  I shopped at local homemade soap boutique and splurged on a  $60.00 per pound  bar of Lemongrass scented soap that weighed in at 1/4 pound ($15.00)   I carried on and filled the gift bag with cotton candy bath bombs, eucalyptus foot cream, spearmint lip balm, and still had change left over from my $100 budget..

I tried my best and failed at extravagance, but I bet I have the best smelling husband at the New Years Eve celebration….Happy New Year y’all from Savannah, Georgia USA🎉
