Sponsor Giveaway :: Songbird Soaps

by Stefani on 24-April-2009

Happy Friday Friends!

I have a very special place in my heart for yummy candles and soaps… really, I feel that one can never have too many of either. 

When I go romping around the shops in little towns and out of the way places with my mom, I never fail, EVER, to bring home either soap, or a candle, or both…. and maybe some Pyrex, but that's a whole 'nuther story. 

Anyhow, knowing my weakness for the smell goods, you can imagine my delight in having a sponsor who lovingly crafts and creates the most delicious soaps and candles – Songbird Soaps


I think her studio must smell like heaven on earth, don't you? 

Songbird artisan, Ansley, has generously offered up TWO prizes for Blue Yonder readers in this weekend's sponsor giveaway. 

The first winner will receive a whole coconut soy candle. 


This reminds me so much of my honeymoon in Maui. I don't see us going back anytime soon, but I'm thinking that if Mr. Blue Yonder and I could share a fruity drink over a candle like this one, I just might be able to close my eyes and hear the ocean. 

You know Mother's Day is right around the corner. I may have to lobby for a mini maui vacation via coconut candle. 

The second winner will get to pick out three songbird soaps of her choice. 


You will have to try your hardest to resist eating them with a spoon though, because really they are just so dang delicious looking, aren't they? I think a nice little soak with some lovely scented goodness might make a nice Mother's Day mini getaway too.

All you have to do to be entered into our Songbird Soaps giveaway is run over to their shop, browse around a little, then come back and leave a comment here on this post, telling me what struck your fancy. 

I'll close the comments late Sunday night and announce a winner, on this post, on Monday. 

Good luck everyone, and happy weekend to you!
Sorry – this contest is now closed. 

And the winners are….. 

 Jennifer V. who said "mmmm…it would have to be the pine scented candle, that smell reminds me of my honeymoon kayaking on Canada's West Coast."

And also, Kobey who said, "Lemongrass & Ginger soap sounds wonderful. Insect repellent that smells good and an energy boost – awesome. All the soaps look beautiful."

Congratulations ladies! And thank you so much to Songbird Soaps!

I am all about the soaps. Rosemary Mint Soap.

Mim April 24, 2009 at 6:17 am

Mmmmm, they sound so yummy. I like the sound of the lemongrass and ginger soap or the lavendar and oats soap. And the candles are beautiful.

Angela April 24, 2009 at 6:22 am

I’m a coconut lover and a candle lover; so both of the coconut sizes look great to me! And the mini-soaps are really cute! I could see a basket full in a bathroom. 🙂

Sherry April 24, 2009 at 6:26 am

magical mint soap…yum 🙂

Leah S April 24, 2009 at 6:34 am

Definitely falling for the soap bars… lavender oats would be my first one. 🙂

Lorilee Kopp April 24, 2009 at 6:39 am

Oh I hope I win! I have no electricity and I need a bath! 🙂 Just kidding. My fav is the coconut candle for sure! That’s really creative!

Lisa April 24, 2009 at 6:46 am

The candle in the coconut caught my eye right away! Cute and original – I have a perfect for it in my bathroom! 🙂

Cristie Baron April 24, 2009 at 6:48 am

Yum! I’m loving the Magical Mint. I’ve been obsessed with mint lately in my cooking – I had never really tried it in anything else but dessert before now. And now that I’ve read her description maybe it is because I’m seeking a little relaxation and escape by dinnertime 😉 Now I could take my escape to the washroom as well! Mint…mint…mint!

Cassandra April 24, 2009 at 6:53 am

I am ALL OVER the coconut candles…

Brittany April 24, 2009 at 6:55 am

I’m loving the lavender spray, I can just see myself spritzing everyone and everything in the house. 🙂

Julie L. April 24, 2009 at 6:58 am

I love rosemary and mint together…yum!

Denita April 24, 2009 at 7:00 am

What is not to like…fantastic shop to browse. Love the coconut candle and the lavendar spray…yummy!

J.T. April 24, 2009 at 7:10 am

I always look for the handmade soaps and candle makers at our local farmer’s market! They are wonderful in any flavor :)! What a neat idea for the coconut candle!

Darla April 24, 2009 at 7:13 am

Rosemary mint hands down!

Erin April 24, 2009 at 7:28 am

those mini soaps are too cute! also, the geranium with carrot seed soap sounds so interesting.

Amber April 24, 2009 at 7:28 am

We honeymooned in Maui, too. Snorkeling there is my ‘happy thought’, remembering it always relaxes me.

Which is also the effect I would hope for with my favourite item, the lavender spray. Just a bit of easy relaxation.

golden April 24, 2009 at 7:31 am

I just bought my very first soy candle. OH my. I had no idea what I was missing!

I love the orange candle and the clove one!

anne April 24, 2009 at 7:31 am

OOH! They all look yummy, and I wish I could smell them through the screen. Lavendar, clove, orange-tangerine, pine–They all must be delicious.

Carol April 24, 2009 at 8:04 am

Ohhhhh, the smells must be amazing….right now I’m soaping up with a locally made goat’s milk that smells….hmm, well it smells okay. I could use soemthing yummier smelling.

Maybe if I’m lucky enough to win I could imagine I’m honeymooning somewhere exotic….I am sad to say my honeymoon (nearly 10 years ago) was spent in….drum roll please…..Narragnesett Rhode Island, certainly a lovely place but not Maui!

Happy Friday!

coffeechris April 24, 2009 at 8:04 am

Wish the my screen was a “scratch and sniff” those mini-soaps are so tweeeet!

k April 24, 2009 at 8:06 am

The candles are beautiful!

Pebbledash April 24, 2009 at 8:24 am

I love the coconut shell soy candles…and I adore soap, something fresh and zesty like rosemary mint, and for relaxing…lavender with oats. Yum!

Fiona April 24, 2009 at 8:30 am

Mmm.. handmade soap, one of my favourite simple pleasures.

Tara April 24, 2009 at 8:53 am

Love the candles the colors are beautifully done. The tall ones with the color streaks is really cool. The coconut that also smells like a coconut. Awesome!.

Jennifer April 24, 2009 at 8:59 am

I like the candles with the funky colors. The rosemary mint soap looks nice, too.

Deanna April 24, 2009 at 9:04 am

the lavender oat sound so good – and the coconut candles look like fun!

Tracey April 24, 2009 at 9:09 am

I love the rosemary and mint soap. What a great thing to use after working in the herb beds.

Kerry April 24, 2009 at 9:14 am

Just thinking about the lavender with oats soap is making me feel relaxed.

Miss. AujahAcorn April 24, 2009 at 9:16 am

How fun! thanks for the chance to win!! Happy friday!

marcela April 24, 2009 at 9:28 am

Wow! they look so beautiful. I don’t have the sense of smell (I know… weird? huh?) never have… so for me is all eyes and touch. I think the coconut soy candle (haven’t tried soy candles yet) look so nice and smooth, relaxing!

and oh the soap… I love handmade soap because they are more natural to feel. Besides the nice comments my family makes when they smell them!

thanks for the chance to win.

rachellake April 24, 2009 at 9:31 am

rosemary mint soap sounds divine!

debbieR April 24, 2009 at 9:32 am

ooooooooooohhhhhhh yum! What’s not to like. If I had to pick a favorite I would say Lavender Oat soap floowed closely by rosemary mint. mmmmhmmmm.
I love candles and soap too, I actually used to make some. ome to think of it I need to do it again. It was very theraputic.

Thank you for a scrumdillicious give away! Have a great weekend!

Kayla April 24, 2009 at 9:37 am

Wow, she has some pretty candles. I like them all, the soaps I think I’m a magical mint kind of gal. These must all smell great! Thanks for the chance to win.

Krista April 24, 2009 at 9:40 am


Lynnette April 24, 2009 at 10:15 am

oh me oh my! Earth lander and lavender with oats struck this mama’s fancy.

Juanita April 24, 2009 at 10:20 am

Yummmmmmmmmmy, I bet the Sweet Orange Tangerine Soy Wax Candle is a winner!

Thanks for the chance!


Jennifer V April 24, 2009 at 10:26 am

mmmm…it would have to be the pine scented candle, that smell reminds me of my honeymoon kayaking on Canada’s West Coast.

Bethany April 24, 2009 at 10:33 am

I think the Lemongrass Ginger soap sounds interesting.

minnesota:madre April 24, 2009 at 10:57 am

I LOVE the funky candles. And you’re right, one can never have enough soaps. Very cool shop.

Illuminated Attic April 24, 2009 at 11:11 am

Lavender oat soap seems like it would be a little piece of heaven to me.

Corey Ackelmire April 24, 2009 at 11:21 am

I’m lovin’ lavender lately, so I’d have to pick the lavender spray as my favorite!

Cayce April 24, 2009 at 11:53 am

lavendar, mint, rosemary. Oh My! Reminds me of a summer garden in full swing. Ahhh, love them ALL!

katie April 24, 2009 at 12:06 pm

I was at Target this morning and they have a young boys shirt with doodlebugs written across it. I thought of you and your boys and your other blog.

Vanessa April 24, 2009 at 12:09 pm

Magical mint, Rosemary Mint, or Lavender with oats soaps-sound great!

Mama Amethyst April 24, 2009 at 12:29 pm

I like the Natural Soy Wax Candle – Scented with Cedarwood Essential Oil. It reminds me of a blue and pink sky.

Christy April 24, 2009 at 12:35 pm

Oh the lemongrass ginger soap would be divine! The perfect summer scent.

Kobey April 24, 2009 at 12:47 pm

Lemongrass & Ginger soap sounds wonderful. Insect repellent that smells good and an energy boost – awesome. All the soaps look beautiful.

Jaybird April 24, 2009 at 12:49 pm

magical mint! We could use a little magic around here this week!

Carrie April 24, 2009 at 1:10 pm

The patchouli and sweet orange soap is calling my name. I bet it is wonderful. And that lavendar spritz spray looks pretty yummy, too. Thanks for the chance to win!
