& Gwen Miller used one of Lis' alpaca silhouettes to make
their farm sign. Larry sent this comment:
"We had been looking
for some time trying to find an alpaca to do this with. We have had
some nice comments from the sign being up and people stop to look at
it all the time.” -----Larry
Celebrate! Ribbon Displays
provided by: Dennis & Holly Gamble and
their Italian Spinoni "Booker". Framed certificates surround his picture.
This is a custom-made, 6’ wide, double-dowel
Display by Lis Smith. The double-dowel allows for the staggering of ribbons.
Holly sent this comment:
"Thank you, Lis, for
building a wonderful wooden ribbon display that allows us
to organize our dog's accomplishments. The picture frame adds
a nice touch as it can be used for a picture or certificate.
It has created a nice display in our home for friends and family to
see what we've earned in agility competitions." ----- Holly
appreciate this suggestion from a repeat buyer of Louise’s lotion bars.
Shari H. (Hillsboro, Ohio) says:
"The lotion bars are
fantastic for people who travel. Since they are not liquid, they do
not get flagged by the TSA if they are in your carry-on bag. That
was my primary reason for trying them when I first found them last
year, and now I am addicted! … I love the little pottery pieces,
which along with the lotion bars will make great little gifts."
Sue S. (Lancaster, Ohio), is a long-time
customer. Her standing order is for
Lavender-Rosemary soap and Lavender-Fleur Lotion 3X Spa Bars. She
the Lotion 3x Spa Bars, wow, I can't live without them. If I use
them on my legs before putting on panty hose, no static cling. The Lavender-Fleur lotion bar perfectly compliments
Lavender-Rosemary soap. The fragrance is subtle yet
George S. (Zanesville, Ohio), said
this about Louise's lotion bars:
"I'm always washing my
hands after working with the horses. Especially in the winter
time my hands
crack open and bleed. The lotion bars really help."
Rose B. (Galloway, Ohio), sent
this text about Louise's lotion bars:
"I am absolutely crazy about the lotion bar tube!"
Teresa A. (Piketon, Ohio), said
Louise's lip balms:
"I used to use Burt's
Bees chap sticks but now your lip balms are my favorite."
Alma S. (Lancaster, Ohio),
sent this note about
Louise's lip balms:
"Other all natural lip balms didn't last long on my lips.
I really like yours, especially the peppermint."
Kristy (Wabash, Indiana), ordered Pet Shampoo Bar, Winter Pet Shampoo Bar, Lily of the
Valley, Lilac, and Lavender-Rosemary homemade soaps. Her comments:
purchased some of your pet soap and I just wanted to tell you how much I
like it. My dog has had a problem with itchy skin for months and months.
I had been using an expensive pet shampoo but he was getting
no relief. I also did not like the way it left his coat feeling dried
out. Your soap makes his hair so soft- he is no longer scratching and licking- it is truly a God
send. I also purchased some "human" soap at the same time and I love
them too especially the lavender/rosemary. What a yummy scent!"
Faith Anne (Columbus, Ohio), is a repeat purchaser; we appreciate her very much! Her
most recent order included Lily of the Valley, Lilac, Lavender-Rosemary,
and Real Lavender homemade soaps. She said:
"Your floral soaps really help me enjoy springtime, even in the
George M. (Denton, Texas), sent this
comment about Louise’s Sandalwood soap:
really like the Sandalwood soap! It is great for hair and my
hair feels soft and is shinny. I especially like the scent
which is very, very mild.”
