Handmade Soaps and PineNeedle Baskets!

Today we have a neat award being given to the fastest posters in the land. Congratulations to the winners of our 7:24 on 7/24 contest -- the two shops being featured today are our very own...




These two very talented and very quick EtsyBloggers were the very 1st teammates to pop into one of our recent forum threads. So let's move on to see their handmade goodies!

You can find SpottedCowSoaps nestled deep in the heart of Vermont amongst the mountain views and dairy farms. Or if you prefer, you can also conveniently find her located just a click away at her Etsy shop right here!



And if you're thinking soap is too heavy to buy online...think again! Per SpottedCowSoap, she "can fit up to 8 bars of soap in a flat rate envelope". Who knew?! Now the hard part is deciding which 8 to select!

And where would you put all those fresh new handmade soap? You can showcase your lovely new soaps in your bathroom in one of these gorgeous Pine needle baskets from the beautiful shop of Peacox Creations.




Isn't that absolutely gorgeous?!

Her Pine needle baskets are "hand coiled and sewn with natural raffia, an old art developed in Africa and in the US." That's right...hand coiled! Can you imagine the time and patience needed to create such a beautiful work of crafty art?

So be sure to visit both Spotted Cow Soaps and PeacoxCreations -- and go find yourself some new favorites!

7:24 on 7/24 was a fun and impromptu little game of timely skill and posting!
Let's do this more often. :)
