If you live in the Houston area, you can now purchase Feto Soap products at Te House of Tea located at 1927 Fairview @ Woodhead in the Montrose area. They carry sandalwood vanilla, yuzu japanese citrus, white tea & ginger & lavender patchouli soap, bath salts, candles & dry oil sprays. They are the only place to get lavender patchouli candles – they are made custom just for them!
In addition to my soaps, they have dance nights on Friday – Tango and on most Saturday nights you’ll find me here dancing. This teahouse also has nice dinner fare – the Chicken in a Blanket is my favorite!

I have been working on orders pretty much non-stop since I got back from San Francisco and the happy little packages will be making their way towards you now! Perhaps I will write about Maker Faire this Sunday.
If you have any questions about the status of your order, please do not hesitate to contact us!
In the meantime, hope to see you at the Midtown Farmers Market tomorrow where all items at my booth will be $5.00!
At Maker Faire I will have oval, round, rectangle, floral patterned and bees & honeycomb molds for people to use to create their own soap. I will also be bringing a box of toys, glitter and fragrances so you can make your soap look and have whatever you desire in it!
Here’s a fun cow soap I made with blue colorant, gold glitter and fresh rain fragrance in an oval mold.
