Espresso Bean Cold Process Soap

Espresso Bean Cold Process Soap

Ingredients: Olive oil, Coconut oil, Sodium Hydroxide, water, espresso fragrance, Espresso beans (ground and whole)

This espresso bean soap is my first time experimenting with a fragrance oil versus an all natural essential oil. It smells delicious and is so pretty! The dark brown layer in the soap is ground espresso beans which act as an exfoliant.

Handmade Pillows, San Francisco CA

I have recently made a few more pillows to add to my inventory and I think they are just so cute and unique! The rectangular set of two decorative pillows gives me a warm desert feel with a modern twist. The singular blue and gold accent pillow has a design on the fabric in blue that gives the pillow texture and interest without having multiple colors in the fabric design. Contact me for purchase or for custom pillows at lpiccetti@gmail.com.

Armor, Ancient, Desert

I recently visited the Alameda Point Antique fair and found the perfect solution for my present addiction with ancient cities, metal armor and the desert. I came across a different variety of metal pieces that will jumpstart my new collection.They give me the feeling of the hot desert and armor of soldiers, yet the rich color metals look like they belong on high class ancient women.

Here is a peek…

Most of these pieces are from the artist Marjorie Baer who is located in South San Francisco.

I particularly like her pieces because of their unique design of different color and size metal pieces.

She also tries to be environmentally friendly in the process of making the metal pieces, packaging, and limiting the amount of chemicals used. To learn more about what she does to reduce her waste check out this link. http://www.mbaer.com/environment.html

Here are some more vintage parts and pieces that I will use to develop the new collection
