Trying to manage to keep life simple and happy in a crooked, old, pet-filled farmhouse with an idea crazy dreamer for a husband!
Interests: Making good food from organic ingredients, living simply, running (not too fast), dreaming of traveling, sewing without patterns, photographing pretty things, and knitting with natural fibers. Oh, and cleaning up after my busy and curious little babe!

Thank you so much for the kind comment Janet - your morning sounds peaceful and lovely.
Thanks - it was a lot of fun to visit, even in December!
Thanks Gillian - a 10k isn't something to scoff at. It is all about training. I tend to go in cycles, backing off over the winter, so I'm hoping to be able to keep at it this season.

Thanks - and it smells good too!

Yes, the fact that is makes a lot is good and bad - if it goes bad, it is quite a bit of wasted money, but luckily this turned out okay!

Ing, we used a recipe from a soap making book. I'll try to remember to share the amounts. (traveling on the road now)

We stuck with the recipe this time (not like my baking...), but I do want to add more good fats to the next batch. And you're very welcome!

Thanks CJ - that is the best part for me; that I know exactly what is and what is NOT in it.

Gillian, I know you could make a lovely soap - and package it up beautifully for gifts!

If you add the oatmeal, he might not even notice since it doesn't add a scent. The peppermint oil was actually my husband's pick!

We made soap! Well, actually my husband made the soap, but it was my idea and I found the recipe. We added ground oatmeal to make it better for the skin and peppermint essential oil to make it smell good. We have made soap in the past (okay, again it... Continue reading

A large, slightly stinky sea-weedy smelling button.
Sand dollars are really interesting Christina! I always associate them with warmer waters, but apparently they are really common in Maine.
Wow, how exciting to contribute to something like that! What a special gift for you just in time for Christmas. I love those handwarmers - really cute pattern.

Chrisy is taking a little break from her Reconnecting With Nature link-up, but we had such a great time enjoying the natural world in Maine this week that I wanted to share. A sand dollar and a mysterious bone. A large Canis familiaris print, seaweed attached to a mussel shell,... Continue reading

Thanks Steph. The foot is feeling better - the salve must be doing something!

I smile a lot when I read posts written by British and Aussie bloggers! One of my favorite phrases is "a lucky dip" - which is the same thing as a raffle contest here. That phrase cracks me up!

Today I am thankful for... two amazing days on Maine beaches. The first day was windy, overcast, and snowy! My husband and I were so excited to be on the beach in the snow - it was perfect. Then on the very next day, just a couple miles up the... Continue reading

Using your own plant would be great - I bought the dried comfrey root at the health food store.
