Valentines Giveaway - Poetry and Soap

WINNER CHOSEN - CONGRATS DOVILE


This month I am giving away some soap made by a dear friend of mine! I still had two Honey & Shea Glycerine Soaps left from a whole bunch I ordered from her last Christmas, and since she just gave me some more (some beautiful Lavender Soap and some Christmas Soap), I thought I'd give away one of the soaps from her I already had as a way to share about her shop with all of you. This soap is shaped like a honeycomb with a little bee on it (you can't see that from the picture). Oh, and she doesn't know I'm doing this by the way (shhh!).

And, because it's February and Valentines is quickly approaching, I'm also giving away one of my magnets quoting Byron's poem, "She Walks In Beauty Like the Night."
Purple Lady magnet

CLXXIII. "She walks in beauty, like the night"

SHE walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies,
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meets in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which Heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress
Or softly lightens o'er her face,
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek and o'er that brow
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,—
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent.

---

BUY IT
The soap from this giveaway is not currently listed at my friend's shop, but she would probably be willing to make some up for you if you asked!


If you would like one of my magnets, this month you can get them for a $3 donation to MercyCorps, an organization helping with relief work in Haiti (I'm not affiliated with MercyCorps, I am just choosing to support them in this way)--that includes shipping. These aren't the ones I sell in my shop, but ones I bought for a bulk rate a while ago. I also have some rectangular magnets you can have for a $5 donation (plus I'm giving one of those away here) and have other round magnets and buttons that I'd be willing to trade for a donations (sleep deprived parent, tantrum zone, tribal toes). If you're interested just ask me: ecarian@yahoo.com.

  59. I love the ballerina soap. It's a really cute idea and my niece would love it (I have all boys so they probably wouldn't want it lol) so I'm marking it so I can buy some before her birthday. Plus it comes in a cupcake scent and I am a big cupcake baker so that appeals to me.
