Missy Moo’s Magical Hand Cream – Carleton Place Farmer’s Market



If you have not met Missy, you can check out the blog I did on on her called: Showering With Missy. Each time I bump into Missy she reminds me of Catherine Landry’s younger sister. Not that they look alike, she just acts like Catherine, and creates all sorts of great stuff. You have probably seen her around the local craft shows, and she is always at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market. She has all sorts of goodies you will never find anywhere, and it is all handmade with natural ingredients by Missy. This woman even meditates over her soap when she makes it. You need to see her stuff to believe it.



So a few weeks ago she was looking for guinea pigs for her new hand cream. Seeing mine look like something out of the movie Hocus Pocus I made sure I was there at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market nice and early. She told me her hand was made from unrefined organic shea butter from a co-op in Gahana that provides fair trade jobs for women. It’s made with love, and organic coconut oil– very nourishing and hydrating simple and effective.

So after a two week challenge it made a lot of difference in my hands. Not that I will ever be a hand model, but I will no longer qualify to be a horror film extra. It smells so good– just make sure you don’t eat it. It is that delicious, and it’s not going to cost you a week’s salary either. Everything Melissa has is so affordable, and made with love. I no longer have to keep my hands in my pocket in embarrassment.

About lindaseccaspina

Linda Knight Seccaspina was born in Cowansville, Quebec about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7 at CHS by Mrs. Blinn. When Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died in 2010, Linda wrote her own obituary. Some people said she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa from 1976-1996. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off she finally found her calling. Is it sex drugs and rock n' roll you might ask? No, it is history. Seeing that her very first boyfriend in Grade 5 (who she won a Twist contest with in the 60s) is the head of the Brome Misissiquoi Historical Society and also specializes in local history back in Quebec, she finds that quite funny. She writes every single day and is also a columnist for Hometown News and Screamin's Mamas. She is a volunteer for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, an admin for the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page, and a local guest speaker. She has been now labelled an historian by the locals which in her mind is wrong. You see she will never be like the iconic local Lanark County historian Howard Morton Brown, nor like famed local writer Mary Cook. She proudly calls herself The National Enquirer Historical writer of Lanark County, and that she can live with. Linda has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County, and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she wrote her obituary, most people assume she's already dead. Linda has published six books, "Menopausal Woman From the Corn," "Cowansville High Misremembered," "Naked Yoga, Twinkies and Celebrities," "Cancer Calls Collect," "The Tilted Kilt-Vintage Whispers of Carleton Place," and "Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac." All are available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. Linda's books are for sale on Amazon or at Wisteria · 62 Bridge Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada, and at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum · 267 Edmund Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada--Appleton Museum-Mississippi Textile Mill and Mill Street Books and Heritage House Museum and The Artists Loft in Smith Falls.
