  • SweetHeart Corn Dolly Favour

    With Valentine's Day on the horizon (Santes Dwynwen is even closer) inspiration struck yesterday and I made this.



    It's a variation on a Countryman's Favour,

    traditionally made by country lads for their girlfriends.

    Tiny Box make a suitably sized box and although I have pale green gift boxes with a Briallen label for my soaps I think this should go in red (without a label 'cos printing in yellow and green on transparent won't show on red)

          ooh I've not seen a corn dolly for years. I think what you have done is very pretty.


          Agree about the red box too.

                    The Sweetheart is here , third one down - but I don't have any boxes yet (that's going to add a pound or so to the price so I'll offer it as an option).

                        The heart corn dolly is amazing, such wonderfull work and keeping traditional skills alive too. I just clicked on the link to see it in your shop, then I had to go through every single page.
                        The shop is so well laid out and easy to browse and the descriptions are so enticing. The only difficulty would be in deciding what to get...
                        Do you do a sample pack that new customers can purchase. The same cost (or a bit dearer) as a full bar but with a smaller bit of multiple soaps.
                        It's the only thing I find difficult with buying sopas online is the scent
                        (some make me sneezy)

                          Thanks people.

                          Nic - I'm so pleased you found the site easy to navigate as putting in the side navigation bar caused me a lot of grief! (particularly for viewing in IE7 and earlier).

                          I am working on making sample packs for soaps and scrubs, but each one will have to have ingredients lists covering all the items (regulations insist).
