At Central Market, they have this wonderful section tucked away back in the corner of the store. GC and I nearly rethought our stance on bar soap after smelling every single offering they had – around 40 or so and every one smelled better than the last. The ones to the left of the photo, while simple in design, were an olfactory delight – especially the spearmint and the clove ones. Mmmm, fantastic!

Some of their more artful soap bars were: a delightful pineapple that was reminiscent of a fresh pina colada, scents of romance and jasmine, a happy little kiwi-scented froggy right along beside an accidentally blurry (apologies, I jostled the camera!) duckie. There were exotic dragonflies, cups of raspberry coffee, berry-scented kitties, and delectable insects

you take one of these soaps, place them on the counter and slice off the amount you want. One of the stock boys laughingly told me they sometimes have small packages of soap fragments – bits of soap sold in sampler sets to get you hooked. And it would not be difficult because every single soap is handmade, all organic and completely fantastic.

I don’t have much else to talk about – the soap was pretty much the linchpin of my blog today. The melodrama of John Galsworthy’s Forsyte Saga is tremendously addictive … I must get back to the trials and tribulations of these wretched families entwined no matter how hard they try to break free.

Seeya on the flip side 😉

p.s. Oh yes, one last image before I post. At the Container Store, I stumbled across these. It’s one of the nicknames for our sweet Wonder Cat …
