Hand Felted Soap and Bling

I  won a couple of bids on two very cool items for the Treatboxes for the Troops Auction, and they arrived Saturday.  They are both created by artbylisak on etsy.  First, is the keychain bling that I thought was really pretty and it's even prettier in person. I have it on my purse and I love it!
I also bought this heavenly Lilac scented hand felted soap.  It came in this cute little package, and the wool it is felted in has anti-fungal properties so no worries there.  Then when I opened the package, oh my, it was like standing in the middle of a bunch of lilac bushes and I love that smell!  I've used the soap a few times now and I love it and I feel quite pampered when using  it.  It took a little bit more time to get it to lather up for the first time, but that does make sense since it is encased in the felt.  It fits in my hand perfectly and you use it like a wash rag.  It smells wonderful and it's not slippery and doesn't slip out of your hand like regular bars of soap do.  So this spring I get to enjoy the scent of lilacs for longer than the usual two weeks. 


So I highly recommend you stoping by artbylisak's etsy shop and check lisa's handmade soaps out yourself.  They come in all kinds of wonderful scents, some are felted, and some aren't.  Here's a few more that Lisa has in her shop.  They are so pretty!
