Please note that the item descriptions listed are the contributors product descriptions and not my own.

SBS Teas Ice Wine black tea
To make ice wine, Vidal or Riesling grapes are left on the vine until after the first frost hits: usually in late November. The grapes area picked on freezing cold nights when the temperature is less than 17 degrees. At this temperature the frozen grapes are as hard as marbles and thus during pressing, water is driven out as shards of ice. This leaves a highly concentrated juice very high in acids, sugars, and aromatics--the required elements for perfect ice wine. This premium high grown Ceylon tea, infused with natural flavors and Ice wine captures the romance and flavor of this exotic treat. There are beguiling sweet pear notes with hints of berry and caramel. Enjoy!!!

and 1 Personal Tea Bag
Environmentally friendly paper filter specially designed for loose-leaf teas. Simply put tea into bag, fold the flap and smooth and use just like a regular tea bag. There is even a string with a paper tab for easy manipulation.

Hippie's Bath & Body Flower Power Soap Bar
My bars of soap may not be the fanciest around but they are handmade goodness for dry, itchy and ashy skin and scalp. My family and I have been using these soaps we have noticed how our skin is so soft & smooth. We also have heard customers saying the same thing about our soaps…their skin feels clean, good and soft.

I take pride in making my soaps- and use hot press method. I am inpatient and while I occasionally use the cold press method, hot press allows me access to my soap faster and well, lets me use it.

Why handmade soap? Because most manufactured soap makers remove the glycerin from their soaps and then sell it to increase their bottom-line. But is exactly the reason behind people experiencing dry, tight, itchy skin when they use these store bought soaps. My soaps contain the natural glycerin which helps moisturize your skin.

Colorado Catnip Toys cloth catnip toy
This cute little critter is approximately 4x5 inches making it the purr-fect size for your kitty to toss up in the air and catch. Mr. Monkey is stuffed with organic catnip from the health food store. It carries a heck of a punch. Ribbon is attached to the top so you can swing the toy in front of your kitty and get more foot action going.

Toy is made from 100% cotton fabric and lined with iron on interfacing. The interfacing will keep your kitty from shredding the toy as fast. The toy is finished with a decorative stitch.

Some kitties like to hold the toy between there front paws and rub it against there cheeks. Catnip affects cats differently. If your kitty does not like catnip, I can make a toy just for your kitty without the catnip. Convo me with details.
