No, I'm not eating again although these little treats look good enough to eat.
They are in fact soaps which came all the way from Florida.
Thanks to Pbase my cousin who lives in Boston knows I have a weakness for
fancy soaps. So when she was on holidays in Florida, she bought these and
brought them to Ireland with her. They were made by Greek emigrants who
have settled in Florida and incorporate natural sponge in the soap.
We had good craic (an Irish expression for fun) catching up last night.
I was delighted to hear that she drops in on my Pbase galleries and enjoys looking at pictures from home.
To me that is what Pbase is all about, sharing our photographs with family and friends,
as well a learning from the other photographers here.
And as I did a ten and a half hour day at work today, the soaps will
come in very handy for a soak as well.

Very well arranged. I'm not sure which I like better, your images or your commentaries. Actually I think they're about even...

Ten and a half hours? Ugh! You deserve a good soak with your pretty soap.

You had us all fooled thinking they were delicious nibbles, but I'm sure you got equal enjoyment from the soaking they provided!

I thought they were candies at first, until I read your description.
Very pretty!

Phillip is always cracking jokes! These do look good enough to eat Mairead! :)

Brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "wash your mouth out with soap and water" :o)
