Dried Flowers

Dried flowers are not just to be enjoyed in the winter months when there are no fresh blooms. They can be enjoyed all year round, and if they are cared for properly, dried flower arrangements can last for years. Dried flowers come in many shapes, sizes, and bright colors, they are not small, faded, crusty blooms. Dried flower arrangements are just as colorful and vibrant as their fresh counterparts, and they last much longer. They can brighten up any room and fit style of home decor.

Dried flower arrangements must be cared for properly. They should be kept out of direct sunlight. They should not be allowed to become damp, rooms with alot of consensation should be avoided. In order to clean any dust that may collect on the flowers, a simple hairdryer can be used, it should be set on low speed with the cool temperature setting.

Flower Pot Arrangement with Oranges

I created a flower pot arrangement using a mix of flowers with hues of orange, yellow, tan, and white. This arrangement also has real dried whole slit oranges. It comes in decorated terra cotta flower pot.

I added a cute little embellishment to the arrangement - little orange and black faux insects on the flower petals.

This arrangement can be purchased at TC Fragrance Crafts.

Clear Glycerin Soap

Glycerin soap is always my favorite, I never use commercial soap anymore. I only bathe with glycerin soap and I even use it to shave my legs. Unfortunately I have very dry and sensitive skin, and I have always had problems with commercial products. Shaving my legs was always a bad experience, I used to end up with red marks, cuts, and nicks, no matter what I tried. I have tried soap for sensitive skin, creams, lotions, ladies shaving foam, men's shaving foam, etc., I even tried shaving with baby oil and baby lotion. Even Nair and Neet irritated my legs.

Glycerin soap has been a miracle for me. I have never had any problems since I started using it. I never get any nicks, cuts, or irritation anymore. My skin feels like velvet after I use it. I especially love lavender glycerin soap, it's so fragrant and soothing.

Lately, I have been working with clear glycerin soap, and I created 2 pretty bars. I like the transparency, it makes a great decorative soap. Both of these soaps can be purchased at my store: TC Fragrance Crafts. There is a rose soap with real rose petals it it:

I also made an icy soap. It is a cool icy blue bar with little snowy white flakes embedded in it.
