The 12 soaps of Christmas: And a partridge in a pear tree…

Crisp Pear 5

This pear-scented soap should come with a warning label:

Warning

The color swirls will enchant you with the way they change as you use it. It’s a good thing this soap is packed with moisturizers—specifically coconut, palm, olive, rice bran and castor oils—since you’re spending all your time in the shower.

We recommend using Crisp Pear only on weekends; you will be late for work if you try to use it during the week. If you are late for work too often, you may be unable to buy more of our soap; that would make us sad.

Summer Block Party 5

When I think of summer on Emmet Street, I think of sitting on the front porch chatting with the neighbors, running barefoot in the grass, catching lightning bugs and neighborhood block parties. Those parties were a blast—we got to stay up late, sneak sips of Dad’s beer and listen to the raucous banjo playing that broke out as the evening wore on.

No summer block party was without food. Platters of burgers, freshly cut melon and other bounty fresh from our gardens made it to the picnic table.

With just one whiff, Emmet Street Creations’ Summer Block Party soap, with its fresh cucumber, melon and pear scent takes me back to those lazy summer days.
