Default Rustic Old Glory

I made this soap on Sunday so it would be properly cured before the Fourth of July. I'm just tickled with how it came out. I wasn't sure about the colors when I unmolded....the blue was an icky gray, and the red was totally orange. In just 4 days it came around and has made me happy. I let it ash up to make it look old and dusted the top with an iridescent glitter to give it a little "fireworks" feel. My middle son and daughter-in-law live in a community of beautiful 1800's rivertown houses....theirs was originally an old hotel called The Helvetia. They have their own private Fourth of July celebration every year; complete with parade and fireworks. This is a lard soap scented with a combo of Fresh Bamboo and Grass Stain. It smells just like someone is mowing the lawn in the sunshine.

"Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares."
Hebrews 13:2

Love them. Nice job making the ash work for you.
deciding everything is falling into place perfectly as long as you donít get too picky about what you mean by place. Or perfectly....
