Snail Mail’s Not Dead!

One of our very favorite things to buy for the store is stationary. So much so that we are constantly brainstorming where in our little shop we could find a place to add a few more card shelves. And we have to say, they are definitely some of our best sellers too! Which is oh so reassuring. In the digital age, we often forget the value of sending a handwritten note when it is more convenient to dash off a quick email or text message. But we do a little happy dance whenever we see a customer walk out the door with a stack of cards, knowing each one will put a smile on its recipient’s face, and keep the tradition of hand written notes and cards alive!

We are sharing some of our favorites and best sellers below, but check out our entire Stationary Collection HERE and use promo code SNAILMAIL for 10% off your entire Stationary purchase through Tuesday July 28, 2015!

A Happy, Healthy Home

Happy Friday all! We are looking forward to the weekend, how about you? We don’t actually get off on Saturday and Sunday (such is the life in retail!), but we get to see more of our lovely customers on the weekends than during the week, and that’s something to look forward to!

Today we wanted to share a few of our eco-friendly products that have been popular with our customers and make for a happier, healthier home environment. Each of these products is made in the US with an emphasis on sustainability and ditching toxic and synthetic materials in favor of all natural alternatives. Let us know what you think and be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom for a COUPON CODE you can use on the products featured here and more!

Bee’s Wrap

Handcrafted in Vermont

Bee's Wrap All Natural, Sustainable Food Storage | Set of Three Assorted Sizes

We love seeing our customers stop at the Bee’s Wrap sample and display to marvel at what a cool concept this is! In my own home, I rarely keep plastic wrap on hand, and instead try to use reusable containers. But lets face it…that can be super inconvenient. And when a top is misplaced there is really no good way to cover the container and keep your food fresh. That’s where Bee’s Wrap comes in!

Bee’s Wrap is handmade in Vermont using organic cotton muslin, beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin. The antibacterial properties of the beeswax and jojoba oil help to keep food fresh and allow you to use the Bee’s Wrap again and again.Use it to cover a bowl or wrap up pieces of fruit, veggies or cheese, using the heat of your hands to soften the bee’s wax and form a seal. Bee’s wrap is absolutely reusable…just wash it up in cool water with a mild dish soap!

The Maker says, “Bee’s Wrap is an old fashioned solution that feels miraculous in the modern world!” And she is totally right! Our customers seem to agree. We have had people come back for more after trying one out at home!

We are particularly fond of one of Bee’s Wraps newer products, specifically designed for your lunch box! The Sandwich Wrap sports a little wooden button that helps keep the wrap closed and adds such a charming touch!

Bee's Wrap Handmade, All Natural, Sustainable Food Storage AlternativeSo cute right? In addition to this Sandwich Wrap, we carry Small, Medium, and Large, and Bread sized Bee’s Wrap individually, plus a more cost effective Assorted Sizes set, including one Small, one Medium, and one Large Wrap.

Bog Berry Dryer Balls

Handcrafted in Philadelphia, PA

Bog Berry Dryer Balls. 100% Felted Wool, sourced from family farm in Lancaster, PA. #Handmade #AllNatural #Ecofriendly alternative to toxic dryer sheets!

These simple little felted wool balls have been a total hit with our customers! And they are beneficial to the environment and community in a multitude of ways. Each and every one is handcrafted by Maker Brooke Petry from freshly carded wool, sourced from a family farm in Lancaster, PA and colored wool from a small, eco-friendly company in Maine. Throw a bunch of them in with your laundry to soften clothes naturally and reduce drying time, wrinkles and static. Ditching dryer sheets in favor of this sustainable alternative keeps harmful chemicals off of your family’s laundry and reduces your contribution to landfills!

Some dryer balls are made with yarn, which ultimately unravels. Not so for Bog Berry Dryer Balls, which are made with high quality wool and are first needle felted and then wet felted. Brooke says “They take a little longer to make, but are the best quality and will last you all of your laundry doing years!”

The Maker says, “The value in these dryer balls goes beyond the money you won’t be spending on dryer sheets, and the savings on each month’s electric bill ( or the quarters you won’t be shelling out at the laundromat!) They’re an investment in our planet, in the small family farms that this wool is sourced from, and in the health of your family.”

100% Pure USA Beeswax Candles

Handcrafted in College Grove, Oregon

Hand Poured Beeswax Candle Tin.  Made with 100% all natural, US sourced beeswax and cotton wick in College Grove, Oregon. #Handcrafted #AmericanMade #AllNatural

There is nothing like the light, sweet scent of burning a pure beeswax candle! Handcrafted in Oregon by a small family owned and operated company, these candles contain only the best, American farmed beeswax. With a cleaner, longer burn than petroleum-based, soot-producing paraffin wax candles, these are a no brainer when looking for a healthy, natural alternative! Plus, you support the farmers that produce the wax and the Makers that pour or dip each of these beautiful candles by hand. Available in Tins, Tapers, Tea Lights, Honeycomb Pillars and Birthday Candles! Read more about the benefits of beeswax candles in this article by Australia-based Green Lifestyle Magazine.

Summer Eats Recipe Roundup

Hello warm weather! The summer solstice is still a few weeks away, but all the Vitamin D we’ve been soaking up lately has us in the mood for light, fresh summer meals. It didn’t take long to round up this mouth-watering list of recipes from some of our favorite food blogs. Together, they make a perfect menu for a laid back Sunday spent cooking and eating and spending time under the sun. And then later under the moon…preferably with a blazing campfire and good company. Ah, summer…


 -Brunch-

Simple Goat Cheese and Egg Toasts with Peas and Dill

by Cookie + Kate

If we’re building the perfect menu for a laid back summer Sunday, we’re obviously going to start with brunch. Take your time getting out of bed. Enjoy your cup of coffee on the porch. And when you’re ready, venture to the kitchen, still barefoot and PJ-clad (cause that’s the best way to make brunch, right?). These simple toasts are perfect for brunch…light enough for breakfast but substantial enough to get you through the day. Pair it with some juice and fresh fruit, or maybe a Bloody Mary if you’re feeling adventurous.

-Snack-

Strawberry Guacamole

by Love and Olive Oil

Strawberry Guacamole by Love & Olive Oil

What’s a perfect summer Sunday without a little guac? This version by Love & Olive Oil has our mouths watering. The sweetness of strawberries mixed with the bright, fresh flavors of lime and cilantro and scooped up in a big heap on a nice salty tortilla chip…sounds like heaven, am I right? If you can bear it, save a bit for dinner. You’ll see why. On second thought, you’re probably better off just planning for a second batch.

-Dinner-

Spicy Shrimp Tacos with Garlic Cilantro Lime Slaw

by Pinch of Yum

Just when you thought this day couldn’t get any better…

These spicy shrimp tacos look absolutely unbelievable. From the base of smashed avocado, to the flavor-packed sauteed shrimp, to the cabbage slaw smothered in a creamy lime sauce, all topped with perfectly salty crumbles of Cojita cheese…this seriously sounds like heaven in a corn tortilla.

-Drink-

Spicy Jalapeno Margaritas

by Love & Lemons

Can you think of anything more perfect to wash down those Spicy Shrimp Tacos? Jalapeno infused tequila gives these margaritas a refreshing kick. This recipe makes a party sized pitcher, so call up some friends and enjoy together!

-Desert-

Swirled Berry Yogurt Popsicles

by Smitten Kitchen

Swirled Berry Yogurt Popsicles by Smitten Kitchen

No perfect day would be complete with out a frozen, berry-filled desert. And these yogurt popsicles by Smitten Kitchen should do the trick. The color of the blackberries (or whatever type of berry you choose to use) swirled into creamy greek yogurt is as visually stunning as it is appetizing, and that’s saying a lot. I can see this becoming a summer staple in our house. I think we need to stock up on some popsicle molds!


And just like that, the day is over! With good eats like this, you’ll be sad to see it end. On the bright side, you’ll undoubtedly go to bed with a satisfied stomach, a healthy body and a happy heart!

Give it a shot…let us know which recipes are your favorites, and what else you would add to make this nearly perfect day even better!

New Featured Maker: HAVEN

Oh, Spring. Come on….you can do it! I have seen via Instagram that other parts of the country are in full bloom, but here in the Northeast, Spring seems to be hobbling along. We are so ready open our windows and replace the stale end of winter air with the smell of blossoms and rain and renewal!

That being said, our new Featured Maker was an obvious choice. HAVEN’s home care products are perfect for rejuvenating your home environment with a spring cleaning. Here is why we think so!

1) HAVEN’s products are all natural, botanical, non-toxic, sustainable, AND handcrafted in Brooklyn, NY

All HAVEN products are cruelty-free and free of parabens & harmful preservatives, surfactants & detergents, pthalates, dyes, synthetic scents, phosphates & sulfates, petroleum-derived ingredients, and allergens (try saying that list in one breath!). And how perfect is that? Who wants to tackle Spring Cleaning only to replace dirt and grime with harmful chemicals? To add to this awesomeness, every HAVEN product is multipurpose, and can be combined with other HAVEN products to amplify their cleaning power. This means just a few all natural cleaning products can replace DOZENS of your usual commercial cleaners.

Image via http://www.homeintohaven.com

Here’s an example. This Lemon and Mint All Purpose Cleaner is a favorite in our household.

Here are its ingredients:

Organic Natural Grain Alcohol, Organic Saponified Coconut Oil, Non-GMO Vegetable Glycerin, Essential Oil Blend (Lemon, Organic Lemongrass, & Organic Peppermint)

2) Each home care product HAVEN makes is multipurpose and can be combined with other HAVEN products for even more cleaning power and more uses!

The All Purpose Spray we highlighted above is a great example. Its powerful yet gentle formula makes it great for use on a variety of surfaces, including Countertops, Stainless Steel, Butcher Block & Finished Wood, Laminates, Tile & Porcelain, Painted Surfaces, Appliances, Fabric & Carpet Stains, Sealed Marble & Granite, Glass & Mirror and more.

For a really deep spring cleaning, you can combine the All Purpose spray with HAVEN’s Scrub cleaner. Or combine the Scrub cleaner with her castile Soap to make a paste for use on tough kitchen and bath surfaces.

3) HAVEN offers sustainable and cost effective refill options

Aside from using earth friendly ingredients, HAVEN is also committed to sustainable packaging. For each cleaner, there is a concentrated, sustainably packaged, and economically priced refill, decreasing waste and cost.

New Handmade Home and Gift Faves!

The beginning of the year has flown by, and we are just floored that it is already the end of February! We have had a lot of fun stuff happening around here, including NY NOW, where we met lots of amazing new Makers, a decision to STAY PUT at our Pop Up location in Somerville, NJ, and the addition of LOTS of new products by new local and global artisans to our inventory.  If you are local, be sure to stop by the shop and have a look. Not only is it better to see and feel the types of products we carry in person, but there are some products we carry in the shop that aren’t available online!

Here are a few of our favorite new handmade home and gift products.  We hope you enjoy as well!


Hand Poured Soy Candles by Brooklyn Candle Studio

Handmade Mason Jar Soy Candle by Brooklyn Candle Studio. The impeccable styling and sophisticated scents captured by Brookyln Candle Studio make their Mason Jar and Travel Tin candles some of our new favorites.  Hand poured in Brooklyn New York, each candle is made with care, and with only the best ingredients, including soy wax from 100% American-grown soy beans, a lead-free cotton wick primed with vegetable based wax, and premium grade fragrance oils.  With no added dyes or chemicals, these candles are not only a perfect specimen of vintage-inspired-modern style, but eco-friendly as well!

Illustrated Succulent Postcards by Quill & Fox

Hand Illustrated Succulent Postcards by Quill & FoxQuill & Fox has been a great addition to our list of Makers, and is a perfect fit in our stationary section!  We love the sweet illustrations on these succulent notecards, and on the rest of their simple, whimsical notepads and cards, which often feature natural elements and woodland creatures. We love having extra cards like these around to go with a spur of the moment gift, for a random note to say hello, or even to frame together as a collection or around the home.

“Love” All Natural Face, Body + Room Mist by The Good Hippie

The gorgeous All Natural, Vegan, and Handmade skincare and beauty products by The Good Hippie have been a hugely popular part of our Apothecary Collection!  We recently restocked after selling out of several items, and decided to add a new fragrance to our inventory.  In addition to the “Peace” and “Strength” scents we previously offered, we now stock Maker Bri Ussery’s Face, Body + Room Mist and Body Butter in her beautiful “Love” fragrance, featuring a romantic, floral blend of Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, and Lavender. This mist is perfect for setting the mood for a relaxing bath or a romantic evening…Ylang Ylang and Jasmine are known aphrodisiacs! Find this and more products by The Good Hippie here.

Hand Lettered and Illustrated Chalk Art Prints, Cards & More by Lily & Val

Maker Val McKeehan’s designs all start with a blank chalkboard and a piece of chalk. After her meticulous illustrations and hand lettering is complete, her creations are photographed and turned into prints, cards, notepads, wrapping paper, and more. With sweet sayings or well loved quotes, fun lettering, and neutral colors, her unique style fits well with a range of styles. We particularly love her Floral or Happy Birthday Chalkboard Art Wrapping Paper, for making gifts feel extra special!


Which is your favorite? What would you like to see more of?  We love feedback and input from our friends and customers, so we can continue to offer a selection of ethically sourced, handmade home and gift products that you love as much as we do!

Our Holiday Recipe “Must Try” List

There are so many reasons to love this time of the year, and the joy, celebration, and togetherness that the holiday season inspires.  One of our favorite ways to be together and celebrate is through FOOD. This is the general rule for our family at any time of year, but there is no other time of year that compares when it comes to inspiring cozy, hearty meals, decadent, indulgent deserts, and creative cocktails to liven up the festivities.  Here is a little roundup of some of the recipes we have had our eye on this holiday season!

Holiday Pop Up Shop in Somerville NJ!

Whew! The past few weeks have been an absolute whirlwind! We are so excited to have opened up a Holiday Pop Up in our sister company’s design showroom in Somerville, NJ! And we will be even more excited if all goes well and we can turn it into a permanent retail space! We knew from the start of our online shop that we wanted to try a Pop Up shop at some point, because it’s a great way of “testing the waters” and seeing how a brick and mortar shop will do in general or in a particular area before setting down permanent roots.

Three Hearts Home Pop Up, Somerville, NJ

We have been overwhelmed by the positive response we have received and the amazing support we have felt from the Downtown Somerville Alliance, other business owners in the area, and the community as a whole. We have had countless guests tell us “this is exactly what Somerville needs!”, and we agree! It is really fun for us to be able to offer something unique in a such a vibrant community that is already home to so many interesting and diverse independent businesses.

We are also incredibly grateful to our sister company, Platinum Designs LLC, who already had so much of the space finished as a showroom. Their unique vision and attention to detail from top to bottom made it so easy for us to make the space feel welcoming, interesting and in line with our value of cultivating comfortable spaces with unique, high quality, and handcrafted elements. It is truly the perfect backdrop for the amazing products we carry by an incredibly talented group of local and global Makers.

We hope you will come see us if you are in the area! And if not, you know where to find us online. Here are a few shots of the shop in its first couple weeks, including some of our favorite details!

New Collection: Fall/Winter 2014

We were so excited to finally launch our Fall/Winter 2014 Collection last week! The timing seems thoroughly appropriate, as here in New Jersey fall seems to have really settled in, turning foliage bright shades of red and yellow, and encouraging forecasted temperature highs to drop ever lower. We’ve gotten our sweaters and scarves out, gone apple picking, and made our first few pots of soup.

With our new collection, we really focused on selecting unique products that (we think) round out our offering quite nicely. We added a new Pet Collection for our customers who share our love for animal companions. We have added a few special products for the upcoming holiday season. We got our Three Hearts Originals line up and running, and are continuing to develop and craft new products to add to it. And we put an emphasis on adding products that make great gifts.

As the seasons change and we start spending more time inside, we also wanted to offer a collection of products that brings elements of the natural world indoors. Our new collection includes handcrafted, 100% US sourced beeswax candles, Terrarium Kits that allow you to create your own, sweet little terrariums, and fun felted wool river rocks and felted wool acorn ornaments created with real acorn caps. And these are just a few of the lovely items we are offering with this new collection. We would love for you to check it out and tell us what you think!

Over the next few weeks we look forward to sharing a bit more about our new products and the Makers behind them. Wishing everyone a lovely week!

Saturday DIY Roundup

I feel like DIYs were made for Saturdays. They’re fun, yet productive, and perfect for gathering with friends and doing something together. Here are a few DIYs we’d love to try ourselves…let us know if you try them, and how they come out!

1) DIY Succulent Wreaths on Uncovet

DIY Succulent Wreath on Uncovet

DIY Succulent Wreath featuring Willow & Jade's Veronica on Uncovetimages via blog.uncovet.com

These succulent wreaths are just breathtaking! This is one of those DIYs that is sure to impress house guests, who “ooh” and “aah” and ask where you got it. And you blush with pride and tell them you made it yourself. Be prepared for subtle requests disguised as innocent comments, e.g. “that would look AMAZING in my living room!” But hey, the holidays approach and these wreaths not only make stunning decor, but would surely be welcome (and very impressive) handmade gifts. Find the tutorial here, in addition to a link to purchase a completed wreath, for those who are not so DIY inclined.

2) DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup by House of Earnest

DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup by House of Earnest

The long awaited Pumpkin Spice Latte season has finally arrived. But let me make a confession…brace yourselves, and please don’t judge too harshly…I’m not that big a fan of most pumpkin spice lattes.  There I said it. I know it’s all the rage this time of year, and it’s a first-cool(ish)-day-of-the-season tradition for many people. But I find a lot of places use a syrup that to me seems artificial and entirely too sweet. But I LOVE this idea for an all natural, DIY latte syrup, that you can alter to your taste. And you don’t even need a fancy espresso machine to enjoy it…I imagine a splash would be delicious in your morning cup of coffee! This one is definitely on our “make-it” list!

3) DIY Wooden Mosaic Wall Art by A Beautiful Mess

DIY Wooden Mosaic Wall Art by A Beautiful Mess

DIY Wooden Block Mosiac by A Beautiful Messimages via www.abeautifulmess.com

This DIY is super impressive, but doesn’t require any special power tools to complete, unless you want to use your own wood scraps. Mandi at A Beautiful Mess shares a good source for finding the raw wood blocks, already cut and sanded, which significantly reduces the amount of elbow grease required for this project. But if you are ambitious and good with a saw and sander, I say go for it and use those scraps from your last home improvement project! Find their (as always) beautifully photographed and thoroughly explained step by step instructions here.

 


Now go MAKE SOMETHING! And have a wonderful weekend!
