Check out Amelia's Soap Co.'s quest to declutter and get her workroom more organized!!
And here is a sample of all the goodies that are created, stored and, packed in that workroom!!
It was the proposed marriage of King Edward VIII to an American divorcee in 1936, shortly after Edward ascended to the throne at the death of his father, King George V. (as in the recent movie)
When King Edward announced his intention to marry American Wallis Simpson, it was met with great outcry. Understanding that his proposed wife would never be accepted and his status as monarch would be ruined, he acknowledged his marriage was “forbidden” and abdicated the throne. So, after a reign of only 325 days, King Edward became known as the Duke of Windsor.
I would like this soap to actually be a celebration of the House of Windsor. It reflects the colors one would most often see at magnificent Windsor Castle --- the golds, beiges, and browns. The glittery gold swirls and colored layers of the soap are elaborate and sumptuous, like the portraits and wall hangings within the Castle itself.
Rather than remembering a “Forbidden Love,” let’s enjoy the festivities soon to come from this happy and remarkable event!
(And PLEASE tell my husband it’s NOT a waste of time to watch the wedding. It’s a lot better than a football or basketball game!)
