Beautiful picture!

Oliver has said so already,
the soaps make me think of Marseille soaps. I love to use them.

Are the soaps home made? I was at a Christmas Craft show here in Oliver and one vendor had home made soap made from Goats milk, he raises goats among other animals.
Several other stalls also had soaps.
I am happy with plain old Ivory soap

Excellent idea and very unique!

Self made soap - I remember, when my mother made soap after the war, when shops were empty, she made even potatoes flower.
This came to my mind about this photo:)

Nice Wednesday to you, Sue!

Lovely photo! These do look vintage; very original. Happy Thanksgiving!

Jay said...

There's a shop here which has begun to sell soap in big cakes like this, all kinds of fragrances and bright colours. The old milled French soap looks far more appealing to me! Is it lavender-scented? Made with olive oil, perhaps?

My favourite soap is L'Occitane in lavender. Mmm!

Laurie said...

Excellent submission. Love these old soaps.

rambling woods said...

These are very distinctive looking cubes of soap; I have never seen anything like this before.

Not like modern brightly coloured soaps, this soap looks hand made. I hope it has a nice Scent.
