A Happy Fall Y'all Giveaway- Day 1

****12:00 AM- November 10, 2009- Comments are now closed****

It's here!!! I just know you have been counting down the days to the "Happy Fally Y'all Giveaway," right!?! Well, I have and I am so excited to offer to you, my lovely readers, some totally AWESOME treasures.

Today's treasure is from Touche Bags and Beads & The Thankful Goat. Dawn and I met about 14 years ago in college. Oh my goodness gracious!!! It's been 14 years since I started college!?!


Breathe in..., breathe out...

Breathe in..., breathe out...

Oh, man...that means I'm (blank) years old!! Geesh!!!

Ok, nevermind... moving right along, please. *Smile*

As I was saying... Dawn and I were roomates in college and we have recently reconnected through Facebook. It has been so fun catching up with her and hearing how God has blessed her and her lovely family.

Dawn is a very creative and crafty lady. I would say she is a good mix of a Martha Stewart and a Rachel Ray who loves Jesus with her whole heart. She is the proud owner of Touche Bags and Beads & The Thankful Goat. Today she is going to be giving one of YOU a 4oz. bar of Handcrafted Goat's Milk Soap and a 4 oz. Goat's Milk and Honey Lotion, both with the beautiful fragrance of "Hangin on the Line"; one of her most popular scents.

And, let me tell you... when she says "handcrafted goat's milk soap" she means "handcrafted goat's milk soap." First of all, she has her very own goats. AND, she milks them!! Have YOU ever milked a goat? No? Me either, sister! Then, get this... once she milks the goats, she mixes all the ingredients together, pours those ingredients into molds, cuts the molds into bars of soap, beautifully packages the soaps, and then sells them. Can't get anymore "handcrafted" than that!

I am so excited to be able to share her products with you; I just know you are going to LOVE them!!!!! Dawn also has some beautiful handcrafted jewerly, purses, and other soaps, lotions, massage oils and facial masks available for purchase. Head on over and check out her treasures- Touche Bags and Beads & The Thankful Goat.

I subscribed to your emails

Jenn @ Beautiful Calling said...

Oh, they sound neat. My littles have been blessed with sensitive skin so we only can use all natural products on them or else they have troubles. I love that she milks her own goats to make the soap. Neat!!

I follow in my google reader but am not sure that counts as an entry.

I enjoy your blog very much!
