My idea of Heaven and a GIVEAWAY!!!

My Heaven

I love simple pleasures. Baths are one of them. I take a bath every night to get all relaxed and warm before I pop into bed. Some people think I am weird. I don't care. The Romans loved their baths and so do I.

Look at this ancient Roman bath.

This is the Roman baths in Bath England. They would make a whole day out of going to the baths.

This is a bath in Turkey...oooh la la.

Check out this one in Budapest. Can you say AWESOME in a high pitched voice?

That's what I say when I see this picture :)

This is how some dudes like to take their baths. Not liking this bath so much :)

One day I will get rich and have a stone bath like this. Although, it might be really cold and the water might get cold too quickly. Maybe it would stay warmer longer ??? Hmmmn- so thought provoking ;)
In any case- it's beautiful !

So all this bath talk brings me to my giveaway. I recently discovered the most AMAZING soaps.
They are all natural handmade old fashioned soaps. Made with love by a sweet Mom. They are not only so nice to look at, and some you wanna eat because they look like desserts, but they last so much longer than regular soaps and they feel so good on your skin.
Look how pretty!!

I have this Pumpkin pie spice one and it is made with real pumpkin, goats milk and all good natural things. It smells SO good. My hubby wants to nibble on my neck after I wash with this. Not a bad thing right ladies ;)

So I am going to give a few away. Leave a comment and I will randomly pick a few numbers on Tuesday night. If you want to buy some for Stocking stuffers, I highly recommend it.

A coupon to get you 15% off is NEWCUST08 when you go here

I like the pretty looking ones. I am a big fan of bath. That is one my greatest escape moments, at least an escape where I can still be close enough to hear what my kids are up to.
Oh yeah, I like your blog.

I'm loving the sound of that soap! Hope I'm picked.

Wish I could take a bath every night! I used to, but we have an outdated master bathroom now. We have to renovate to get back a master bath tub. Can't wait until I can do that again!

I love baths too! I can't resist everything that's out there for the bath...oils, soaps, beads...I love to light candles and soak in the tub.

Wow nice giveaway and great pictures of my dream bathtubs!!
Love to try Pumpkin Spice!

Don't pick me for the soap, but it sure is an interesting post. My wife loved baths also. Never took a shower.

The stone tub would take time to heat up, but would retain the heat a long time.

groutte........that's what you seal tile with.

WOW...seriously people are so creative! I would love the rainbow one! :)

Heather said...

how pretty! I am totally a bath girl...I love a good bath! When I'm sick, I tend to take multiple baths a just always seems to make you feel better, no matter what!

So, after posting about your Etsy store, I am seriously in love with your paintings. I am going to see if I can put that Tree of Life one on my Christmas list.

These look super yummy, but I can't help asking: do they have a chocolate chip cookie soap? I wouldn't mind lathering myself in chocolate!

I feel the same way about baths. I wish somebody would design a human hygiene receptacle for TALL people, though. I can never seem to get comfortable in any of those run of the mill tubs. I need to go to Rome, I guess. I think I'd fit in their baths...

The Crash Test Dummy said...
