Monday, February 8, 2010

Beekman 1802, located in Sharon Springs, NY, is a wonderful historic home & working farm dedicated to art of seasonal living.  Owners Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell offer a laundry list of artisan provisions for purchase thru their website / Found below are 2 handcrafted gifts created for your Valentine.

"Make each of your words a lasting testament. We will handwrite your message of 140 characters or less on our hand-quilted heirloom notecards and mail it through the US post using one of our W. Beekman stamps.
Each card is sewn by hand by our B. 1802 quilter, Betty Pillsbury, using vintage fabrics and antique lace. Flower petals and leaves are individually tied out of satin ribbon."

"In our BEEKMAN 1802 Month of February soap, we tried to capture Valentines Day: red hot candies, a little warming patchouli, and some other scents that we think complement your skin. We hope it helps put you in the mood (as well as whomever happens to be bathing with you.)"


My husband and I were visiting Waynesville, NC, over a year ago to support a friend's art opening at a local gallery.  Before heading back to Atlanta, we spent Saturday morning milling around the cute shops of the downtown area.  We randomly found ourselves in Hazelwood Soap Company.  Ever since the days of The Body Shop back in the late 80's, skin care shops have popped up in towns & cities all over the country.  We never really gave Hazelwood much thought until we started sampling their products.  I am not kidding when I say their Natural Shea Butter Lotion is the last hand/body cream you will ever buy!  The combination of natural ingredients, subtle fragrance, and the non greasy feel has saved my hands and dry skin areas especially during the winter months.  I have turned family & friends onto Hazelwood and both continue to spread the word!


Hazelwood Soap Company offers individual products for sale...  lotions, face/body scrubs, lip balm, etc...  as well as a must try, the Linen Spray - try it on your bed sheets in the Lavender scent for a dreamy and calm nights sleep! 


For your Valentine, a limited edition Soy Wax Candle, or choose from one of their wonderfully selected & packaged gift sets - for him or her.  Don't see the right combination of products, contact Hazelwood directly, they are always happy to accommodate in any way!
