If you've followed along with our Homestead story for any amount of time, you know that we have the VERY best neighbors that anyone could ask for. They aren't just folks who live down the road from us, they are also our friends.
My Friend and neighbor, Janice called yesterday afternoon and said that she had a goody for us. Well, Janice owns a bakery so when she says "goody" our salivary glands start to work and we get the forks and napkins out and anxiously await her arrival.
Like always, she did not disappoint.
Check out this decadent dessert that she made.
The shortcake was made with cornmeal, coconut milk and coconut. The whipped cream was REAL and the strawberries were divine!
Proper people would have waited until after supper to eat this delicious treat but we aren't proper people. We were hungry gluttons and we happily dove in to our treats, soon after Janice left.
I found this, deep in the files of my computer. We are originally from Tennessee but lived in Texas for 5 1/2 years. All three of our children were born there as well as my father and myself. My Daddy has always been a great wordsmith and I asked him to write up something for my soap business which at the time was called Sister Golden Hair Soap & Candle Co.
I changed the name to reflect my current business name now but everything else still applies.
Funny how browsing through the files of your computer can be like browsing through the pages of a scrapbook. So many old pictures, writings and memories are stored there.
From Tennessee to Texas,
Sweet Harvest Homestead has traversed the magical link between these two Great States, collecting the scents, sights, and sounds of Southern Culture at every stop along the way.
With Honeysuckle Dewdrops gathered in the Dells of Nashville
to the Wild Mountain Laurel found on the highest peaks of the Smokies..
While the smells of Meadowpink and Bluebells
from deep in the Heart of Texas beckon you to visit this
Scentsational site of Soaps, Candles, & Lotions.
We invite you to spend the day in a land of Magnolia Trees and Shade.
Pull up a chair, sit on the porch and wile away the hours
with a good cup of tea, and the company of a true Southern Belle!
Sweet Harvest Homestead ..........
You'll be Delighted !
This lovely lady was my original graphic. She has since been replaced with the silhouette of the tree and my children.
How about a class on Soap Making and as an added bonus, I’ll show you how to make lotion too?
When: Saturday, March 15th
Where: My House, Stanfield, NC (directions will be mailed after payment is received)
This class is so much fun! I have taught many people how to make soap over the years and a lot have gone on to make their own after attending my class. One lady has even started her own soap making business!
Your skin is your largest organ. Doesn’t it make sense to use the best and purest products on it?
I’ll teach you what you need to know to do this!
You will get to see a full demonstration; start to finish of Hot Process Soap Making. This is the method that I have used to make my soap for the last 13 years.
I will also show you how to make a fabulous face and body cream.
Come Hungry! I can’t let you come to my house and not feed you! We’ll have ham and bean soup, corn bread, salad, tea and coffee.
You will go home with a Hot Process Soap Making booklet, soap, cream and new knowledge!
Class is limited to 10 participants. Spots are reserved with payment.
I have been working on the *Perfect Cream* for a year and is available now, for you to enjoy too!
Why is it perfect? Well, I’m glad you asked. ... It is made with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Aloe Vera Gel, Distilled Water, Vitamin E Oil, Beeswax, a few drops of Lavender, Rosemary and Neroli Essential Oils and Optiphen (a paraben and formaldehyde-free preservative)
I have been using it on my face, neck, legs, arms, torso, feet and hands and it feels wonderful! It has been great for my itchy, winter time skin and my face has a different glow about it.
The fragrance is rich and amazing but light at the same time.
This Perfect Cream is made up in very small batches to ensure that you get a quality, fabulous product.
Price is $8.00 for a 4oz Jar + Shipping.
