Make Natural Soap Last Longer

All Natural Soap can seem to give you trouble but really its simple. All you need to not have a mushy bar of soap that doesn’t last is a soap dish. But not any soap dish will work. You need to have a draining soap dish so that your soap can dry in between uses.

Soap gets mushy when it doesn’t dry and is left on a flat wet surface or a soap dish that has water in it.

Here are some photos and links for good soap dishes. You can also type in the name of the soap dish in google and find the price range that fits you.

I use a metal rack that hangs from my shower and I put my shampoo and my bar of soap on that.

Ingredients: Organic olive oil, organic coconut oil, clary sage essential oil, sodium hydroxide, water, natural brazilian clay, ground pumice, indigo powder.

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.

Blue/Silver Movement Design Pillow

This fabric remnant I had found and as soon as I spotted it I was absolutely positively in love immediately. The different colors of blue with silver intertwined are stunning. The Design has the movement of a river or stream and flow so peacefully. I paired this fabric with a silver fabric backing to create a more metallic shimmer.

Each pillow in the pair shows a different pattern of the fabric.

Here they are and enjoy!

Someones Give Away is Someones Come Up! Thank You ThredUP!

My main theme of Lianna Piccetti Designs is to recycle vintage jewelry parts and pieces, to create new one of a kind pieces, and upcycle fabric pieces to create my jewelry pouches.

 

 

Recently we did a photoshoot for the Gilda collection and wanted to continue on our recycle and reuse path by using clothing that was consignment. We shopped at thredUP which is an online consignment store for women and children. Being online is extremely convenient because you can shop from home and they have so many options. We are so excited that thredUP’s service is available, and we absolutely love it. Check out our pieces below and check out www.thredup.com for some new clothes!
