Winter came down to our home one night
Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,
And we, were children once again.
- Bill Morgan, Jr
Winter is the season of both quiet comforts and child-like fun. In the darkness of the long mornings and even longer evenings, we retreat indoors for warmth by the fire, the solitude of a good book or time spent with friends. This time of year is filled with so much delicious food - hearty meals prepared with much care and special treats of long-standing tradition.
But who can resist the fun of a Snow Day?! Snowball fights, careening down the hill on a sled, rolling a snowman around the front yard, laughing till your belly aches. And the very best part of winter? The holidays, silly! So much activity packed into every single day – the baking, the shopping, the decorating. The anticipation almost makes you burst. Racing down the stairs on Christmas morning, oh the piles of presents! And their faces when they open that gift from you. Yes, winter truly is a season of happy delights.
As the holidays get closer, the gift lists grow longer. The perfect gift is a unique, special, treasure - both useful, and use-able. Soapworks Studio’s little gifts of soap and bath goodies totally fit the bill. All locally handmade and reasonably priced, there is something for everyone on your holiday gift list.
Holiday Seasonal Soaps
The upcoming holidays have sparked a bunch of new wintry wonderful soap scents for a little fun in the shower, or a treat for that special someone (or all your friends and family). The autumn seasonal scents are still available a bit longer too, plus our full list of soaps are available online, something for everybody! ($4.25 each or 4 bars for $16.00)
Douglas Fir & Mint – The perfect winter day is spent outside in a snowy Northwest forest – skiing, hiking, or searching for that magical Christmas tree. Fresh pine and fir needles blend with icy cool peppermint for a tingly, refreshing soap. (100% natural soap)
Cinnamon Sugar - Nothing beats the combination of cinnamon and sugar together – on toast, in baked goodies, or even in a bar of soap! Delectable, comforting, and warm, it’s the perfect treat for a dreary winter day.
Rosehip - Rosehips are the fruits of the rose plant, those beautiful dried red berries that brighten up our drab winter gardens. This soft red bar is an absolutely lovely blend of ripe, juicy, berry with a bit of citrus tartness and a pinch of soft rose petal.
Holiday Spice Home Fragrance Spray
It’s our own little holiday tradition around here, and I know many of you can’t wait for it either, the Holiday Spice aromatic spray. It’s just not the holidays without it. We spritz around the house just before guests arrive, and they all coo about how great the place smells. And we spritz gift boxes, cards and stockings too before sending them off -- family and friends get a whoosh of holiday goodness when they open their presents! Holiday Spice is our most requested seasonal spray, every year since the very beginning - oranges, cranberries, spices and greens all blended together for the perfect scent of magic and delight. (4 oz bottle - $ 6.00)
