The carpenter and her jewels...

The ravages of summer storms played havoc with my aluminum storm door last week ripping it from it's hinges...soooo...
I replaced it with a new vintage wood door...
sweet huh!
The original Friend's store was in this quaint lil' brick house that was sold along with everyone else's homes on the block to build a Family Video store.
All the homes were torn down, but we were allowed to salvage anything we wanted from them.
I wish I could've gotten all of the arched windows, but there just wasn't enough time or help,
but I do have the fancy Victorian door, that will someday be on my front door...
heehee...

My jewels...well...I spent the other part of the day making soap for Amazing Grace in Amana...
Sandy you are gonna love the Blueberry and Strawberry Rhubarb...OMG!!!
This scent is Oatmeal, Milk & Honey
and has organic oatmeal scrub.


This emerald jewel is Garden Mint, laced with bits of ground mint leaf...
mmmmm...tingly!

Strawberry Rhubarb...oh yeah, is your mouth gonna water with this one...

Blueberry...you like the berries...well, you are gonna love this sweet scented fruit flavor!

Sweet Orange Chili Pepper...bright orange fruity scent...

Clean breeze...like fresh laundry on the line...mmmmm...

Chanel #5...oh yeah...the scent of the 60's,
who doesn't love it...
As you can see my jewels abound, as this morning I finish the soaps heading to Sister's Garden as well...never a dull moment at The Pink Chateau...
the sweet scents of Sweet Repose linger on a summer breeze.
