Sweet Pea Day!

 
Last week was Sweet Pea Day at Summers Past Farm. The sweet peas are blooming, and there's nothing quite like that fragrance. Unfortunately, the event was just a bit early, in that many of the flowers weren't quite ready for cutting. But it's still fun to go to events and fun places, and this is a perfect place to picnic. They've got some great classes on things like herbal soap-making, but the price is a bit too steep for my pocketbook. I would like to learn how to make some glycerin soap bars with cut soap shapes inside. They don't teach that class because they say it's really easy to learn on your own (guess I'd better look into library books). They do sell wonderful glycerin soaps there though for $5.95 per bar--I especially like the seahorse and bee-shaped ones. Expect to be greeted by their huge yellow mascot kitty and the friendly banti rooster. Posted by Picasa

That looks like such a fun and lovely place, wish it was near by me. They have lots of stuff for soap making at Michaels, they must have a book there too you could look through. Do you have Borders Book stores by you? You can go there and sit and have a coffee while you read all the crafting books :)
