We are on the home stretch now, with less than two weeks  until Christmas, and I hope that you have a good idea at least of what you will be giving your family and friends for their presents!

But there is always that ONE person who is hard to buy for, who has everything, who is “picky”, or so sweet they are happy about everything they get. Sound familiar to anyone else out there?

Well, what better gift than a fabulous soap-a-month club membership for three months from Kleine’s Farm and Country soaps?


I have featured her soaps many times before, most notably in ((learning how to make your own handsoap)), but I use her lovely products all the time! My favorite is her gingerbread soap, which is currently in my bathroom scenting the air every time someone uses it with a wonderful rich gingerbread scent!


Chelsea is a good friend and partner in crime, since we have butchered chickens together, hung out many a time, and enjoyed one another’s company and life’s joys over the last couple years. 🙂 Here is the best picture I could find of her newest and brightest joy:


What a delight to see the Kleine family growing and changing as the years pass! Congratulations to Chelsea and Travis on their newest little addition of Josiah! He is cute as a button, just like all the others are!

Speaking of accomplishments,  have you seen that we released our newest book yesterday? The first book in a three book series, this 52 page book is chock full of recipes for water bath canning that we use around here every year, and walks you through the whole process from start to finish!
