The Month Of Extra Love

The Month Of Extra Love

Who doesn’t love Valentine’s Day? Whether you want to let someone you love know how much they mean to you, or give yourself some extra TLC with a treat, we’ve been having a lot of fun gathering some new goodies that cover it all. So, I thought I’d round up my favorites for you here in this week's journal entry...

Zen Master, Thich Nhat Hanh brings his signature clarity, compassion, and humor to the question of how to love. With offerings on children and family, being in love, physical intimacy, crushes, and much more, How to Love includes meditations you can do alone or with your partner to expand your own capacity to love. The book includes sumi ink drawings by Jason DeAntonis.

Show your heart by decorating a table, door, or fill a bowl with these sweet galvanized metal hearts ready for hanging by a rope loop.

A bestseller and one of my favorites, the Cashmere fragrance candle by Linnea is handcrafted with natural biodegradable soy wax and therapeutic grade essential oils. This fragrance has notes of chamomile, amber woods and patchouli.

An exciting new addition to the store, Trudon is the creme de la creme of fragranced candles. Established in 1643 and a favorite of royalty, each candle is poured into handcrafted glass in Tuscany inspired by the shape of champagne buckets. Paying homage to Marie Antoinette, the Tuileries candle has head notes of pink berry, blackcurrant and mandarin, heart notes of white flowers, raspberry, geranium and rose, and base notes of musk, patchouli, sandalwood and vanilla.

A pretty little trio of diamonds set in 14 carat yellow gold, these petite earrings made by Adina Reyter are perfect for everyday and give a lot of sparkle.

Inspired by ancient rudimentary designs, gold wire is hammered, then knotted to form a simple, organic ring that is both understated and elegant. Handmade in Upstate NY by Mary MacGill. 

This beautiful botanical paperweight showcases a perfectly preserved dandelion head. Each specimen is hand-picked in England before being dried and later encased in a sphere. A perfect gift for lovers of the garden.

And when it comes to gardens, flowers are our first love. And what better way celebrate that love than with the Botanical Wonder Bar. It is a decadent, 72% dark chocolate bar infused with blonde orange and elderflower, and is pressed into a flower mold, and scattered with beautiful organic rose petals and delicious toffee. The ultimate botanical dark chocolate treat for yourself or the ones you love.

Celebrate a Valentine’s lunch or dinner using my napkins from The Stone Jug Collection. The Misty Rose is a bestselling color and just restocked in time for the season. The mid weight linen is pre-washed to give a soft handle to the touch.

You can elevate your special table setting with these chic, hand poured twisted rope style tapered candles. Lovingly made from 100% pure North American beeswax in Upstate New York, they never fail to add romance.

Curated by Susanne Kaufmann, the Alpine Bath and Body Collection features a trio of products, inspired by Austrian spa traditions for a true holistic ritual and deep well-being. Included in the set is the Mountain Pine Bath, an aromatic bath soak developed to soothe the senses, the Arnica Body Oil to leave your skin nourished and silky smooth, and the Body Butter for luxurious and intense hydration to finish your at-home spa moment.

Bath bombs your thing? Lose yourself in the Secret Garden with gentle notes of organic patchouli, lavender and geranium. Listen to the gentle fizz as the bath bomb fills your tub with skin nourishing goodness. Organic coconut oil soothes and moisturizes the skin while mineral salts relax your muscles.

These Florentine frames are one-of-a-kind and handcrafted in Florence, Italy with gold and silver leaf, and painted details. Each frame is unique and the perfect way to display a photograph of a treasured memory as unique as the frame itself.

The Brass Stud frame is crafted from ethically sourced bone in a natural ivory color. Each frame is inlaid with gold patina brass studs to add a rich textural finish.

There's still 10 days left until Valentine's Day, so plenty of time to find some goodies to gift or treat yourself to. And I hope my list of some of my favorites helps you along the way. We also have greeting cards (link here) and can easily write your message to include with any gifts shipped. We're here to make things easy, always!

Sending lots of love,

Local to Santa Barbara? We're having an extra special 3 day event at our stores with gifts, tastings, pop up shops, giving back and more. Bring your friends, partner, fur babies. We hope to see you there!
