Link Love 7.11.14

It’s Friday again already!  The week has flown by around here. We got word Tuesday afternoon that there was a spot for us at a local Farmer’s Market (at the incredibly cool Stangl Factory in Flemington, NJ), so we have been busy bees getting ready for our very first Pop Up!  I’m looking forward to sharing a little behind the scenes look at the process next week.  For now I have a round up of links for you to peruse as you enjoy your weekend!

Color Love 7.3.14

These days I am so torn between two major design trends.  I love bold colors, global style, and lots of mixed prints/patterns/textures.  But I also love the trend toward simple, clean design with subtle, often neutral colors, little clutter, and natural accents.  This color palette is inspired by the latter trend.  I took this shot on a walk through my old neighborhood in Nashville, TN.  I was struck by the way the cool, neutral tones of the church building were accented by the blue sky, and actually picked up some of its hue. Color Love 7.3.14 | Three Hearts Blog To further inspire you, here are some images of similar palettes used in real life design!  What do you think?

Wedding Gift Guide Part 2 | Three Hearts Blog

Wedding Gift Guide Part 2: For Lovebirds

For part one of this little series we shared several wedding gift ideas with a focus on simple, timeless, instant-heirloom design. For Part 2 we are bringing you some suggestions for the sentimental couple…gifts that celebrate love and togetherness.  Check them out in the shop!


“We Are Birds of a Feather” Hand Screen Printed Wall Art by Satchel & Sage

A play on the saying “Birds of a feather flock together,” this sweet illustrated quote represents friendship, love, and kinship, celebrating the familiarity and bond between kindred spirits.  Each piece is cut, stained, and screen printed by hand, and mounted with brass hooks.  The hand drawn typography and feather illustrations are printed in white, which stands out beautifully against the walnut stained pine.

 


Hand Stamped “Love” Pillow by Nesta Home

We love this simple pillow and its simple statement for newlyweds!  The design is hand stamped, using antique textile printing blocks.

“You, Me, Forever” 4×6 Screen Print by Satchel & Sage

“You, Me, Forever” is just one print in a series called “Venn by Penn,” created from original, hand-drawn illustrations by Satchel & Sage. Check out the other Venn by Penn prints here. The print comes signed and numbered on the back, and is printed in coral on 210 gsm cover stock white, textured paper.  (Frame not included)


“Go Where Love Grows” 5×7 Screen Print by Satchel & Sage

Satchel & Sage’s original quote, written in hand-drawn typography, is surrounded by sweet floral illustrations.  The illustrated, hand-pulled silkscreen print uses white ink on 100# kraft cover stock paper, giving it a light, natural aesthetic.  (Frame not included)

Wedding Gift Guide Part 1: Heirlooms

Love is in the air!

We are in the thick of wedding season, and we know for a lot of people, that means multiple weddings, and of course, multiple wedding gifts to shop for.

Most couples do you a favor by creating registries at large stores for products they need or want for their new home together.  But personally, I am one of those guests who hates shopping off of the registry.  I say, where’s the fun in that? Particularly for couples I know very well, I much prefer surprising them with a thoughtful gift they weren’t expecting.

Over the next couple of weeks we will post a series of Wedding Gift Guides, each with a different theme.  Our first guide is all about heirlooms.  We can’t think a better way to celebrate the start of a life together than by giving a gift that will last a lifetime.  The products we are featuring in this collection are all impeccably handcrafted, with simple, classic styles that the newlywed couple in your life can plan on passing down to future generations.

Find all of these (and many more!) heirloom-quality goods in the shop.


Hand Loomed Virgin Wool Blanket by mexchic

Hand loomed with a mixture of rustic virgin and merino wools, this blanket is thick and very large, and can be used for a bed cover or even a rug!  The delicate fringe at the hem of each side is hand knotted and offers a beautiful contrast to the bold stripes of the blanket.

Wheel Thrown Pie Dish & Pantry Bowl by Farmhouse Pottery

Farmhouse Pottery’s work all offers the timeless style characteristic of heirlooms.  Each piece is made of durable American stoneware and is dishwasher, oven, and microwave safe.

Shaker Cutting Board in Walnut by Vermont Farm Table (also available in cherry)

This Shaker Cutting board is just one of a collection of cutting and serving boards by Vermont Farm Table.  You can feel the care put into crafting each piece when you hold it in your hands.  We also love their French Paddles, available in Walnut or Tiger Maple.

Fair Trade, Hand Forged Heirloom Scissors by Rupalee (available in three sizes)

Each pair of Rupalee’s scissors is made of recycled brass and steel, and hand forged by master craftsmen in India. The blades can be sharpened when necessary for a lifetime of use.

Cherry French Taper Rolling Pin by Vermont Farm Table

Simple, functional, and elegant in design, this french taper rolling pin is crafted from one solid piece of wood. We love it as a compliment to the Pie Dish featured above.

Link Love 6.6.14

It’s Friday!  Who has awesome summer weekend plans?  I am looking forward to Nashville’s annual summer “modern handmade market,” Porter Flea.  There are always so many wonderful, creative, local Makers, and I’m looking forward to scouting out potential new products to carry in the store!

Other than that, I’m hoping to spend some time outside, cook some delicious food, and catch up on some reading of both books and blogs.  Here are a few lovely links I’ve found over the course of the week if you’d like to catch up on some reading too!

Get the Look: Cobalt and Cream

We are excited to start a new, regular, “Get the Look” series today!  As avid blog readers ourselves, we love seeing our favorite bloggers curate collections of products for different looks.  Even if you have a natural inclination for interior design and home decorating, it’s great to get a fresh perspective and inspiration for styles you may not have put together yourself. And let’s face it…it’s easy to page through a magazine and point out the looks you love, but to recreate them is another story!  It can be overwhelming to comb through a store’s offering, even a shop as small as Three Hearts Home, and identify products that create a cohesive look.

With this series, we will curate mini collections that help you see the way different pieces fit together. Our first “Get the Look” collection is all about color and a well-coordinated tabletop. This fresh, clean color palette is incredibly classic, but offers a contemporary feel at the same time.  Enjoy!

Big hugs, sound advice, your favorite home cooked meals–whatever makes your Dad special to you, Father’s Day is the time to let him know!  While we are sure Dad has loved all of the ties, wallets and slippers he has gotten over the years, why not go for something he’s not expecting this year?  We have put together a collection of Father’s Day Gift Ideas on the website, but wanted to share a few of our favorites with you on the blog.  We love these products paired together, but each makes a lovely gift on its own as well!

Okay, so maybe candles and soap are not your typical Father’s Day gift.  But we love these products by The Onyx Exchange, and we think Dad will too!

Using fragrance oils, The Onyx Exchange has achieved truly unique candle scents.  These 4oz. Soy Wax Candles Tins are available in three Dad-Friendly scents: Tobacco, Leather, and Bourbon.

Their handcrafted shave soap is formulated to hydrate and refresh skin, and is fortified with kaolin clay to create a good slip so that the razor glides smoothly.

Is Dad at home in the kitchen?  Any lover of cooking and cuisine would feel absolutely spoiled by this lovely set.

Artisans at Vermont Farm Table use time-honored technique and a simple, traditional style, resulting in an heirloom-quality product that you’ll have, love, and use for life.  The beautiful hand joinery gives the pieces two cross-running lines, allowing the wood to expand and contract while keeping the board from warping due to humidity.

Farmhouse Pottery’s Maine Farmed Sea Salt is harvested fresh from the ocean and sun-dried on Bailey Island, Maine. The mineral rich saline waters of the Gulf of Maine give it a crisp and unique flavor.


Nature Lover Set

Vermont Wood Candle
Ol Pine Heart Warmer Natural Fatwood Firestarter

I know, I know, again with the candles!  But these Vermont Wood candles are perfect for lovers of wood and nature and the feeling of spending time with the trees.  Available in Birch or Cedar scents, these candles are made in small batches with pure essential oils, fine fragrance oils, and American farmed soy wax.  Each candle is hand poured into reclaimed vintage glass, and comes in a recycled letter pressed package.

Since ancient times, people have used the heartwood of old pine trees to create warmth.  Each bundle comes wrapped in screen printed Belgian Linen, handcrafted by Cincinnati-based Maker VisuaLingual, and offers enough material to light 50-100 fires.  To use, whittle a stick down to 5-10 matchstick sized pieces and use as tinder under a pile of kindling in your campfire or fireplace.

New products from a new Maker!

We are so excited to welcome a new Maker to the family! We received our first order of candles and soaps from The Onyx Exchange last week, and they are fabulous!

Handcrafted in Indianapolis, Onyx’s candles are hand-poured, 100% soy wax.  Their fragrances are unique, and offer a lovely balance between earthiness and lightness. Co-owners Shan Parker and Jarod Wilson began the company, at first called Green Illuminations, in 2010 with their line of candles that make use of recycled wine bottles. After three years of growth and evolution, they realized they had outgrown their original brand, and brought to life The Onyx Exchange.  Their website explains,

“Onyx is an excellent stone for releasing negative emotions such as sorrow and grief, and therefore brings good fortune and helps in recognizing personal strength. This black colored stone helps in relaxation, and in facing various challenges in life, especially if one suffers from a lack of life energy and exhaustion.”

Appropriately, Onyx’s fragrances are relaxing yet energizing, employing fresh, soothing essential oils, like rosemary, lavender, tea tree, bergamot, and citrus (to name a few).  The soft crackle of the wood wick in their 7 ounce Lux line and their wine bottle candles adds another dimension to the atmosphere of relaxation!

7 Ounce Soy Wax and Essential Oil Candle by The Onyx Exchange | Three Hearts Home

In addition to their essential oil line, Onyx offers a line of candles scented with fragrance oils, which allow them to capture truly unique scents like leather, bourbon, black tea, and tobacco.  We will definitely be featuring their products for Father’s Day!
