White Wednesday #37

While in Naples, my mom and I hit several thrift, consignment and antique shops.  One of my finds was a beat-up old white scale.  I used it to stage the photos for my newest batches of soap, as well as some of my white pitchers, dishes and vintage linens.  And of course, as my soaps are al 'a natural, they are all shades of white too.....these pics are all 'vintage-fied' with Picasa, and I love the different textures and shades of the whites in a warmed black and white setting.....

  

  

 

 

 


My mom, a breast cancer survivor, for whom I began making soap.

I agree, each time I see pictures of your mom, my thought is you could be sisters.

Your soap looks delicious. Reminds me of fudge, yum yum!
