This is the order that got me hooked . . . or should we say obsessed. That's an Oatmeal, Milk & Honey bar, and it's still my sentimental favorite scent. I was so excited and fascinated by this newly discovered world of goat milk (and handcrafted) soap that I placed several more orders from Goat Milk Stuff early on.

This is one I came across during my brief time on an absolutely horrible bully infested soapers forum. Her site (not the forum) is gone now and I wonder if she quit or just has a new one. Now that I think about, I'm pretty sure I did post about this one. At the time, I ordered these because she had a renaissance line and I thought that was the coolest thing. I was a bit shocked by the scents once I received them because they were not the sweet and pretty types I was used to at that point. Thinking about it now, these were more along the lines of what FuturePrimitive, Haus of Gloi, and Valhalla do. If anyone knows what happened to this shop, please let me know!
I know I said in a recent post that melt-n-pour shops would not get my business, and I've felt that way all along but last fall when I saw these on Etsy I could not resist. That was my first soap cupcake, and it was so freakin' Halloween-gorgeous. The cupcakes are available again this fall . . . HERE . . . and are in Candy Corn scent. The other was a French Macaron soap in a vanilla or caramel or something scent. I see those are now available in Halloween colors too . . . HERE. Oh, they look so cool!
I know there was at least one more shop I had tried but I didn't see the pics from it when I was sorting, and I'm not even sure what the name was. I know she's still around but I'm not sure what she's called now. I remember the names Pure Simplicity, and something like Hil's Heavenly Scents. I don't know if they are the same shop, or why they both stick in my head. If anyone can clarify this in my head, thank you!!
I think I am now pretty much complete on every handcrafted soap I have every tried . . . LOL I'll have to move on to talking about books and movies and general life rants. How boring is THAT?
