Cupcakes and Other Things

Fancy a cupcake anyone? I hope they look good enough to eat.

But I don't recommend taking a bite of these lovelies :) You see they are soaps. Yes that's right, I spent my days making cakes of soap - literally! LOL
Lavender cupcake soaps - soon to be on sale in my store (once I have prettied them up a little). Opinions anyone?

Let's see, what else...
I received my lovely parcel from Gena at Patra's Other Place. What a delight that was! A vintage cup and saucer, and spoon, teabags, a pretty doily - all in a wonderful tin. I am so spoiled :) Thank you Gena, I loved it lots.

Thanks to the rain (not complaining!) I still haven't caught up on the laundry, but am getting a couple of loads a day done and dried. Folding is mounting up fast though!
Is it just me? Once I get going on the creative stuff, the housework just goes out the window. I can't seem to find a way to get both things done in a day - and in a house with three munchkins roaming about, it sure gets untidy mighty fast! Aah well, they are on holidays at the moment, now might be the time to get them working! LOL

Oh, my mum has finally gone and got herself a blog too :) I'm not sure if she wants me to let you know, but I'm gonna anyway. Go and say hi to her - she's a good mamma :) You can find her at
Robyn's Place Hi Mum!!

I still haven't ventured near the sewing machine - I'm having too much fun in the kitchen, creating non-edible items LOL. Next on the list is sparkly, smelly (in a nice way) tealight candles. I'll just keep them away from
Alison Heehee.

Well friends, that's all for now, talk soon...
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Edited to add: I have decided to publish the link to the store...there isn't a lot in there at the moment, but I'm working on it! LOL

Come visit me at
Amethyst Grove Online and tell me what you think!

Thanks for telling your friends about my blog. I had some lovely comments and now I'm going visiting. Love the soaps. Maybe you can personalise them to order, eg by putting someone's name on them?

Your online store is absolutely beautiful, Flossy - very professional! All the products look lovely too - and I even have one which I am dying to try out next time I am ironing one of my linen treasures! By the way, I'm GINA not GENA - she is another one of us ladies with a name that sounds the same but is spelled differently by the Owner!!
