A Touch of Glass and Diane of ATouchofGlassAnd has been doing Stained Glass for more years than she care to admit to; handcrafting everything from stained glass suncatchers, to windows, to whatever catches her fancy or someone else’s. Each sheet of glass is hand cut and inspired by the colors of springtime flowers, the crackle of an autumn fire, songs of the birds in summer, the babble of a winter brook and the whisper of the spirits in the trees. They are true works of art, great craftsmanship, and made with love.

She also carries Heat Bags filled with flaxseed and herbs for aromatherapy relief, and they smell great 🙂 Last, Diane has also been selling flags, pennants and banners which focus on honoring Northern European or Asatru traditions.

Kilted Suds is a line of handmade soaps and body products created using an old family recipe from Ireland. The brand logo is St. Brigid’s cross, and bars of soap are hand stamped with Celtic knot work. Brigid began creating soaps at a young age with her grandmother. As an Irish immigrant to America, she brought with her recipes from the Emerald Isle, one of which was her recipe for soap. Over the years, her original Irish recipe has become Kilted Suds. She has tweaked and changed little things here and there to bring to you an all natural, organic, and vegan line of products. New discoveries along the way has allowed them to expand our product lines to include things such as lotion and lip balms.

All of their soaps are hand crafted using the finest natural ingredients. Liquid soaps are made using a hot processing technique which transforms distilled water, olive oil and organic coconut oil into a liquid soap base. They then scent and dye the liquid soap using all natural ingredients and essential oils. Scents are created using a variety of fresh herbs, dried herbs, teas, oils and essential oils. Dyed soaps are dyed using natural ingredients. Their bar soaps are created using a cold processing technique with most bars being made of olive, coconut, and sunflower oils. They take great pride in the fact that only the best natural products are used in our soap production to create a product that is silky and will leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed.
