Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Dirtroad Team - Coffee House Suds & Cottontail Quilts

Welcome friends! May is coming to a close and summer actives will be the normal way of life. Please say a quick prayer for those who have been hit with some of storms that have marched across our great country this last month. Then take a few minutes to visit two more wonderful shops from the Dirtroad Team on Etsy. The first shop is Coffee House Suds. Starting in 2001 making soap and sell at local shows, she is now gone global with the internet. If you are in Mobile, AL you will find her at the Mobile Market most weekends. All soap is made with the cold process method, using essential oils. Having sensitive skin if the soap irritates her skin she will not sell it. You will also find laundry soap and lip balm in her shop.

The next shop is Cottontail Quilts. Cindi learned the art of quilting from her Grandmother over 30 years ago. Cindi's quilts are works of art, each being hand quilted. All made to last a life time and to be pasted on to the next generation. Living in a log cabin with her studio over looking the woods, her ever changing view with Michigan four season must be wonderful to work in. Besides quilts for your bed, you will find mini quilts, bags, kids wear, fiber art and many more items to look at. It is a real treat to visit Cindi's shop and her wonderful art!

Enjoy your visit and come back next week for two more amazing shops from the Dirtroad Team. Are you in artist living in a small town, come and check out this amazing team on Etsy.
