I’m having a good morning. First it started when I woke up with no fuzzy white cat ass in my face, a rare treat! For some reason, Jack decided to sleep in his own cat bed, something he rarely does. Without my hot, furry, bed stealing cat, I got enough sleep and was actually early enough to work to make a coffee and pastry run, and the coffee shop had homemade pistachio s’mores! It was like Christmas!
While I was waiting for my coffee I checked my e-mail and guess what? My day got even better!!!! I won something! A really cool book from someone cool! I’ve been enjoying westeastern.me blog for a while now, her blog is very well done and entertaining. Plus her pictures are badass. And there are horses. Go there, enjoy her story.
So Jessica inspired me to pay it forward. It’s been a long time since I’ve done a giveaway, it’s time. My Mom is sponsoring this giveaway, thanks Mom! We make old fashioned lye based soap on the Ranch, just like our great grandparents used. Its lovely soap, I’ve used it since I was a teenager and attribute the fact that I still get carded every time I attempt to buy booze or get into a bar, to that soap. Well that and lots of water and sunscreen.
Oops, sorry, I lost focus there for a moment. Back to the soap. My Mom has been making this soap for a long time. She always had a passion for soapmaking ever since she was a child. Being the youngest of 5 kids, my Mom developed a colorful vocabulary and became very well acquainted with the taste of soap at a young age. We are working on new pin up girl labels (by we, I mean me), but my limited skill with Photoshop is proving to be a hindrance (hint, crafty photo people want to come over and help?).
This giveaway is for two of bars of Table Mountain Ranch Goats milk Soap, in Lavender Breeze and Yuzu. All you have to do in comment on this blog. Next Tuesday, May 15, 2012, I will use random.org to select a winner. Good luck!
