Isn't This the Cutest!

This is the prettiest jar of french milled soaps. Lee sent these to me from Uncommon Goods.com as a thank you for their visit. I just smiled when I openned the box. They are the prettiest little robin's eggs nestled in the brown paper straw. How clever.
These are guest soaps of course, but they match my own master bath perfectly, so they are staying nestled in there for me to use! Lee, thank you so much for the wonderful gift and for coming to see me! Love you, Buddy!

When Lee arrived, I gave her this cute box of notes that I happen to run across at Marshall's. I added some ribbon and a tag and it just dressed it up sweet enough for a dear friend. This also serves as a reminder of our promise to each other to travel to France on our 50th Birthday's.

Have a Great Weekend Dear Friends and Fellow Bloggers!

Love,

Tammy

Ah girl...
As always your finds blow me away. You have such a knack for it.
I just enjoyed all the pictures you posted of your time with Lee. You both are just amazing and look so happy together. Hopefully we all can make it to getaway in October. I'm hoping too. See you there buddie.
PS..homework...working on a BS in Business Management. Beening going for a few years now...it's just started to weight me down though. I only have 5 classes left, but I really think I need a break. It leaves me with no time to enjoy anything and makes me cranky..lol.

Your soaps are the cutest! I have a college room mate that I still keep in touch with but could do better. Your relationship with Lee has motivated me to really stay on top of our friendship. Have a great weekend.

Oui Oui!! How much fun are you going to have!! Make sure to visit those famous french flea markets. Love all of your photos too!! the soaps are familiar to me. One of my best friends, her sister is the designer of the line. Gianna Rose. That is her real name too! I know you hate to use soaps that are that pretty...but they are all french-milled and soooo nice. In the past I have been lucky enough to get the "broken" ones from the warehouse....that is probably the only way I would use them. They are so pretty.

I completely agree that those soaps are the cutest! But, that could be because I work at UncommonGoods and love all of their unique items. If you ever need gift ideas yourself, check out uncommongoods.com and browse the whole site or select specific sections like "For him" or "Just for fun" to see what we suggest. Happy shopping!
