The Fair is Open...Soap Rhapsody

Welcome! The Buttercupland Chanukah/Christmas/New Year fair is officially open. I am delighted to open the fair with my favorite soap collection, made by my favorite soap maker. Yes, my friend, Connie, is the only soap maker I know, but if I knew a dozen soap makers Connie's lovely, creative and handmade soaps would still be my favorites. Three decades ago -- yes, we were twelve -- we worked together in city government. Connie was one of the most organized managers I've ever met and she handled literally  hundreds of details a day calmly and with a smile. After retiring she began Soap Rhapsody, and those of us who are soap fans are the luckier for it.

The wide range of soaps are made with natural vegetable glycerin soap bases and there is something for everyone on your list. Prices are reasonable and this is a great place to look for stocking stuffers that will be fun and useful. I am a soap fan and found so many products that would be fun to give and to keep. I know I would want to keep the pretty acorns pictured above.

I think the Christmas bar soaps would be so cute in a basket with candy canes...


 ...and if you're looking for a Halloween treat for the ten year old boy in your house these soaps might be just the thing. They're not for me -- or probably you -- but this would be a great way to encourage kids to use soap more often.


There are too many great designs to feature them all, but I recommend a visit to the Etsy page. Pumpkin Soap-on-a-Rope would be my first stop. 

I'm so happy to open the Buttercupland Fair this morning. Please stop by again. We'll have some fun gifts to give -- and to keep!

I love these out-of-the-ordinary (and practical) soaps ... something for that person who has everything, ya know?
Come to think of it, stocking stuffers are my favorite part of holiday shopping!
