Exotic Packaging: Crabtree & Evelyn Tea Rose & Glycerine Soap

More Than Yesterday
Less than Tomorrow

For some reason the french text does not mention that this soap was heart-shaped.
I remember it well from 1975. A great big red heart.

A Little Bit of Chocolate Does You Good: Gin & Tonic Truffles

I got a little box of truffles for Christmas. Gin & Tonic flavour. Gin & Tonic? Really?

Really. Only I don't really think they taste of gin & tonic. The outer shell of these truffles is white as you see, and quite thick. The inner truffle is milk chocolate. And as I said, doesn't really taste of gin & tonic. A little bit citrusy perhaps? There are some crunchy crystals of something that may be citrusy. It's hard to tell.

It's a fun idea and quite tasty but I am definitely not convinced on the gin & tonic front.

Ehrman Tapestry Sale Catalogue Summer 2013

Here's another sale catalogue from the wonderful Ehrman tapestry company. Every time I look at these I want to buy practically everything but let's be honest; there are only so many cushions you can fit in one house. And we only have a lavish 2 sofas. If only we had 7 or 8 like some people I know. But then the people with all those sofas don't sit down and make their own tapestry cushions. At least, I'm fairly sure they don't. Too busy going to the opera.

Remember you can check out Ehrman's current products here.
