Spring in definitely in the air – thank goodness!!   Folks are getting out into their yards, letting the tops down on their cars and headed to the historic Marietta Square in Cobb County.  This turn of the centruy square is filled with specialty shopping and a variety of unique restaurants.  They’re having theater and museum events all-year-round!!  We’ve found a fabulous boutique that offers exactly what you’d expect in such a quaint area – it’s called LimeLight.  From the moment you walk in the door, you’re greeted with the warmth and hospitality of a small, country town.  Susie Mauldin, the owner, has done a terrific job in featuring tons of one-of-a-kind finds that you’ll only find at LimeLight. – and she also enjoys featuring local artisans.

Ya’ll can also check us out – LIVE and in person – later on this week at The Unqiue Boutique being held this Thursday, April 25th  6a.-9p.  and  Friday, April 26th  9:30a.-1:30p.  at St. Brigid’s Catholic Church in Alpharetta.

A Beautiful new line of salvaged wood trays!….  As many of you know my husband Larry is the creator and talent behind “Farmwoods”.  His rustic wood trays and mini soap crates are his latest creations.  Many of our retail shops already proudly display their NuMe Natural Soap on one of his awesome trays or a custom display piece that he made just for them.  His trays and other “this and that’s” we have  requested along the way,  have sort of been a part of our soap company from the beginning.  But make no mistake…..my husband is very happy to be an anonymous creator behind the scenes with little fanfare for himself, but every now and then I think a glimpse into the artist workshop helps the buyer understand the workmanship & hard work that goes into each and every piece.

  The new Collection, (inspired by our daughter Shanda), has beautiful touches of color in the hardware to bring a fresh new spin on these rustic hearty trays.  What do you get when you buy a Farmwoods handmade tray?  You get a one of a kind piece of art, with various toned wood grains, visible nails,… cracks, chips and other possible salvaged wood characteristics are all common.  It’s all part of it’s hard to resist charm,… it’s as if every piece has a story to tell.   NuMe Natural Soap will be displaying the new line in our booth at the upcoming Country Living Fair October 26th, 27th & 28th!  So come out to Stone Mountain to see the entire unveiled collection, and of course pick up our awesome show specials of all you favorite NuMe Natural  soaps!  We have some new items we can’t wait to share with you at the show by the way!  More blogging to come soon on NuMe going to the Country Living Fair for the 1st time!  It’s sure to be an adventure :)  By the way….we  love to hear from you, so please leave us a comment telling us how you like the look of this new line, or if you are planning on going to the Country Living Fair this year?  We have actually never been so fill us in on what is was like in previous years.  What did you like, what did you not like, you know all that good stuff :)  We thank all of you for your support and ongoing encouragement!

Dianne and I are over to moon when we hear from our customers and other NuMe lovers.  We’ve found over time that we’re getting some of the same questions from folks – ‘I LOVE the soap, but only have a little sliver left – what am I supposed to DO with it?’   This is music to our ears !!  For one:  it means that we can hook them up with some more awesome soap – maybe even a scent they haven’t tried before – Two:  we can share the many, many ways that we’ve found to use your bars down to the last drop.  {YEP – we’re totally into repurposing around here.}    It’s a fabulous luxury to place a sliver of any of our Lavender soaps in your pillowcase – Lavender is a relaxing and soothing scent.   While you’re running your bathwater (yes, take some YOU time and take a soaking bath)  toss in a small piece of soap, making the water silky and leaving your skin nourished and smooth.

Summertime in Georgia

Have a sports bag that might be smell’n a little funky – you know what to do.  {I actually popped a small scrap in my son’s football bag with out him knowing!!  He’s none the wiser – but I’m not turning green anymore when I unzip the bag -Ewww.}  Make your dresser drawer smell fresh and clean because you’ve tucked a small piece back in the drawer.

This next one is my FAV.:::  I love summer and all, but aside from the heat, what I DON’T like are the BUGS !!  I ran across this little tidbit, thought I would try it — and low and behold — IT WORKED !!  Take a scrap or small piece that you have left over, wet it a little, then rub the damp piece directly on your skin.  The natural ingredients in our soap make the bug bites stop itching!!  Genius !! !! The first time that I actually tried this, I was literally driving down the road, had a slice of soap in my truck and started rubbing the dry bar on a bite.  It seemed to work instantly.  What a RELIEF !!  Other scents that the bugs aren’t crazy about are: Peppermint and Eucalyptus Mint.  Use these scents as an ‘all-over’ wash too and critters will be keeping their distance.  NIRVANA !! !!

We’ve shared a hand-full of secrets with you….. now for some fun we have in store for you this Fall from NuMe:)

COMING SOON:  Our online store is soon going to be having a NEW addition!!   Bit’s & Pieces are soon to become a must-have.’  These are individual bags with a hefty 15oz. of our natural soap tucked inside.  Each bag contains random selections of various sized soap Bits & Pieces - a piece from the end of a loaf, discontinued scents, experimental batch pieces – no two pieces are the same within one bag.  These bars are made with the same quality ingredients as all of our NuMe Natural Soap.  They’re not labeled or wrapped – so be prepared for a little surprise.  And….  you guessed it …. you can use it for the helpful hints that we’ve listed above:):)  Look for the addition to our store soon !! !!

Enjoy the rest of August:)                                                                                                                                                                                                  -Marie.

Ok,……so about a week ago I had a chance to sit down with a two year old.  You know, just a typical completely random little 2 year old you would find on any playground around these parts :)   Turns out she had a lot to say about NuMe Natural Soap.   She was quick to tell me that her mama washes her from head to toe in Oatmeal Complexion NuMe Natural Soap!  She says it smells very nice and her mama doesn’t have to worry about any harsh chemicals or preservatives because all the ingredients are safe and plant based!  Oh, and she said her mama loves how it lathers so well also.  The Shea Butter, Olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil,  and soy oil, leave her skin soft and creamy!  So there you have it.  If it’s mild enough for this little beauty it will surely be mild enough for your sensitive skin needs.  We all know about the soothing, healing benefits of ground oatmeal, which each and every bar is loaded with as well as Vitamin E and Jojoba oil!  We are so excited about our Oatmeal Complexion bar we are offering a special SALE on it through out the entire month of August!  Just use Promo Code – oatmeal25 to receive 25% off this scent all month long!

Oh by the way…….so maybe this two year old wasn’t “completely random”, and maybe she “might be” my granddaughter Harvey Jane, but hey a two year old tells it like it is right? :)

Thanks Harvey Jane for doing an interview and photo shoot with di di – I LOVE you!

It’s always something that my family looks forward too – going to visit my folks during the summer back in Louisiana.  We retreat to the farm out in the country away from all the hustle and bustle, bright lights and noise of the city.  In fact, the only noise you’ll hear are the bull frogs at night, and the only nighttime lights you’ll see are coming from lightning bugs and the stars.  My kidos enjoy their coffee with Grandma in the morning, then it’s down with breakfast and outside with Grandpa – getting into whatever Grandpa and grandchildren can find that’s interesting, fun and most of all DIRTY :)  They LOVE going fishing, finding ‘teasures’ in the barn, gathering eggs from the chicken house and getting their

Joey & Snowflake

visiting time with the numerous Noah’s Ark of a collection of animals on the farm.  We love it out there – it gives us a chance to realize we need to slow down a bit, regroup as a family and spend time with the ones we enjoy most.  My children are making memories helping Grandma in the garden, reaping the abundant crop of squash and zucchini that they have this year (they LOVE helping making zucchini bread) and counting down until the tomatoes are ready for harvesting and canning.  One week doesn’t seem to be long enough, but we’ll look forward to visiting again come this fall.

Something I love, almost as much as spending time on the farm, is sharing NuMe with those that LOVE IT as much as we do.  We found such a place with Nest & Company, another beautiful shop in Bossier City, Louisiana.  With the help of owner, Linda Wicker, and her shop of helpful ladies, NuMe has found another home.  It’s located right in the heart of the Boardwalk area – along side the Red River.  Over the past several months, Linda has quickly become a HUGE fan of NuMe and shares her love of our soap with her customers.  They keep a well stocked display of our soaps, with fresh shipments arriving as quickly as Linda can get them.  {She’s such a sweet, Southern lady.}  Nest & Company has very generously invited me to stop by for a visit and even a ‘meet-and-greet’ event while my family and I are in town next week.  We’re having a ‘Good-Clean-Fun Event’ that is sure to draw a big crowd with the warmth and charm of Linda’s shop.  I’m personally bringing in a large, fresh shipment of NuMe soaps – so they’ll be plenty on hand for all to sniff and share.  The ladies will be offering sweets, yummies to sip and their Southern hospitality.  I’ll be getting there around Noon on Sunday, July 1st and staying as long as folks are there – or until they kick me out – whichever comes first:)

Linda Wicker at Nest & Company

You’ll find them at:  524 Boardwalk Blvd., Bossier, City LA   Tel. (318) 741-9511   Feel free to stop in ANY time and say “Hey, Ya’ll.”   We’d love to see you:)  I’ll be posting pictures from my visit when I return to Georgia after our visit.  Until next time…..

I’m proud to say that I grew up an ‘Air Force Brat’ and couldn’t be more proud of my father choosing a career serving his country and happier to have grown up traveling the world – along with my mother and sister.  When folks ask ‘where are you from,?’ I’m never really sure what my answer should be.  My home is – well, whereever my parents are.  My father retired from the service and settled in an area of Northeast Louisiana where we were once stationed, where I was born and an area of the country that they’ve always loved.

My family, here in Georgia, travel back to see them several times a year – loving the hospitality, visiting with family and friends, and of course, the FOOD:)  While visiting my folks earlier this spring, right smack in the middle of Mardi Gras, my mother told me about a charming shop that was a MUST SEE on our list of places to stop.  The shop was called Chinaberry located in Bossier City, Louisiana.  We stopped by, opened the doors and I was blown away my ALL the beautiful things from home furnishings to gourmet kitchen items, boutique clothing and gorgeous linens.  One thing that I thought maybe they were missing…. some NuMe.  I just so happened to have some soap out in the car and before we knew it, the gals in Chinaberry were sniffing and smelling away.  They were ALL so sweet and inviting.  They been carrying our soap for several months now and it’s doing great.  If you’re ever in the mood for a road trip, or might be in the area, check them out at:  1011 Chinaberry Drive, Bossier City, LA 71111. We’re delighted to have a new home there.
