Last Farmers Market ~ Wednesday Dec. 23rd


It's been a whirlwind of a Holiday Season for me. Making hundreds of bars of soap, labeling them all, sending out packages, fielding desperate phone calls and meeting customers in Shaw's parking lot for a soap delivery, selling at Craft Fairs and Farmers Markets....whew!

I have managed to squeeze in some shopping of my own, trying to support local merchants when I can.  I have also baked a few batches of cookies Martha Stewart's Cookies: The Very Best Treats to Bake and to Share (Martha Stewart Living Magazine) some new recipes from The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl as well as attended a great neighborhood party and walked away with an awesome Yankee Swap gift, a Wine Bottle Pepper Mill!   You can find it here: Marlux 9-3/4-Inch Red Wine Bottle Pepper Mill .  I have another party tonight, a Pot Luck/Yankee Swap at the bakery where I work.  Hoping that maybe I come home with something like this Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics: Fabulous Flavor from Simple Ingredients, or this And Winter Came (by Enya) or I would even take this Twilight (Two-Disc Special Edition) !  What fun we have at our Yankee swap,
you just never know what will be there and after a few cocktails and a lovely meal, it is all great!

There is one more chance for you to shop for soap....Wednesday we are having an extended Farmers Market in Falmouth and are calling it (are you ready?) The Festival Of The Last Minute! Come to Allen, Sterling & Lothrop on Rt. 1 Falmouth from 10-3 for all sorts of last minute gifts. There will of course be plenty of soap for you to choose from as well as knit items, yarns, pottery, baked goods, teas, specialty Olive Oils and much more. Hope to see you there!
