A little Bit About Me
Someplace in Thyme
I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

PINK SATURDAY IN MY LAUNDRY ROOM
If you follow my blog or know me, then you know I am a basket weaver. I used to be in an AOL basket swap with some very talented weavers. I also did juried shows. The basket you see above was woven on a vintage wash board. It was not woven by me, but by a fellow weaver in Maryland. It is one of my favorites and perfect for the laundry room.
I am loving the little wooden clothes on this wash board. Too cute for words. I have thought about weaving on it, but decided to start a wash board collection instead. Won't my husband be so happy to hear about that!!
This beautiful box was bought at a flea market while we were leaving in Europe. It had no lid, and as much as I would have loved the missing part, it didn't matter to me. I never intended to use this as bread box. Instead, I use it to hold my handmade washing soap!! Yep, you heard me right, handmade, and it only takes about 5 to 10 minutes to make.
Bloggers are a wonderful people, they share their ideas, hearts and recipes. This is the best soap I have ever used and can't imagine ever buying laundry soap from the supermarket again. If you would like this simple recipe, please go visit The Beehive Cottage HERE. You will not be disappointed.
Thank you so much Ms. Beverly for once again bringing the pinkies together. You can visit Beverly and all of this weeks participants at How Sweet The Sound.
