moments of joy holiday pails!

Happy December! ☃️ Introducing the “Moments of Joy Holiday Pail,” a collaboration with 3 local businesses I ❤️: Beal Creations, Iron Shot Café , & Lippy Lip Balm (only 20 available)❣️

I try to live life not waiting on big things but celebrating little things that happen every day. I call these “moments of joy.“ 😊 This pail represents some of my fav moments of joy & I’m hoping it’ll bring you some moments of joy, too.🥰

The smell of your favorite lip balm 💋, biting into a fresh baked cookie 🍪, finding a perfect decoration for your home ✨, relaxing with a warm cup of yummy tea 🫖, harvesting a pail of warm-from-the-sun tomatoes…🍅 All of these moments are represented by this holiday pail. 🤗

🌲INSIDE🌲:

❄️ 3 amazing natural lip balms from Lippy Lip Balm – 1) “Go Ahead, Lick the Spoon” (vanilla frosting) 🧁, 2) “Bee Naked” (unflavored), & 3), a flavor we created together especially for this pail, “It’s Oh So Very Choco-Cherry” (cherry cordial). 🍫🍒

☮️ 3 sachets of delicious, loose leaf tea from Iron Shot Café – 1) “prosperi•tea” (basil, mint, puerh) 🌿, 2) “Aztec” (cinnamon, ginger, allspice, cloves) ❤️‍🔥, & 3) “creativi•tea” (lemon balm, cranberry, orange). 🌿🍊Each sachet make 4 cups. 🍵

🌟 1 stunning, birch wood ornament from Beal Creations – they worked hard on creating this ornament with me & produced exactly what I envisioned. 🥳 It’s 4” tall & features a purposely neutral nature scene anyone can enjoy. 🦌🌲❄️

💫 4 3-packs of my homemade cookies – 1) Farmhouse Chocolate Chip 🍪, 2) Snowfall Sugar 🌨️, 3) Spiced Cranberry Orange ❤️‍🔥🍊, & 4) Buttered Pecan Spice. 🧈❤️‍🔥

🪣 Like last year, I chose a Behrens Metalware container that’s made in the USA 🇺🇸 out of galvanized steel. The pail holds 8 quarts, is watertight, & its dimensions are 10.13 “L × 10.13″ W × 8.75” H. 😃

♻️ Also like last year, I am re-using paper grocery bags & natural jute twine as my wrapping materials 🛍️ & it wouldn’t be a holiday pail without a fresh cut sprig from my own Norway spruce tree. ✂️🌲

⭐️ Each pail is $39.00 (only 20 available) & is available for porch pickup 🏡 or delivered to your home for free, within the city limits of Delaware. 🚐 Sorry, no shipping. 🚫📦 Contact me to order yours, while they last! ❄️❄️❄️

Back from 2019…Spiced 4-Pepper Chutney!

Happy Monday, everybody! 😁 I hope you’re all doing fantastically this morning! 💫 Thanks, once again, to the generosity of my brother-in-law 🥰, I have exciting news! 🤩

Remember me teasing you about those peppers 🌶️🫑 a while back and then the mystery 💚❤️ pic from last night? 🤭 Well…just in time for Cyber Monday…I’m thrilled to REINTRODUCE our EXTREMELY popular, limited edition, flashback to 2019 ⚡️, never thought we’d make it again 🤗, product: Spiced 4-Pepper Chutney‼️🥳

This amazingly flavorful 😋, saucy chutney is made using organically homegrown West Virginia peppers (Chilaca, Anaheim, Poblano, and Jalapeño) 🫑🌶️, cane sugar, organic apple cider vinegar (with Mother) 🍎, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and a dash of sea salt. 🌊🧂

We only have 20 jars 🫙 of this deliciously spicy ♨️ concoction and only time will tell, if we ever make it again. 🕰️🤷‍♀️

These chutneys make wonderful gifts 🎁 and are pressure canned for a long, shelf stable life. Once opened, they need to be refrigerated and will last several weeks, if needed. 😉

Message me to order yours. 😁

FYI: Each 8oz jar is $7.00. You must buy 2+ jars or 1 jar and some baked goodies to qualify for free delivery in Delaware proper. 🆓🚐 You can buy 1+ jars with porch pickup 🏡 or shipment to anywhere in Ohio. 📦

introducing lingonberry almond spice!

Oooooooo 🤩❕ I’m sooooo happy 😁❣️ I’ve been super excited to announce my new holiday cookie flavor for months now. 😅 This new recipe took me 3 test batches to finalize 🫣🤭 and, without further ado, I give you LINGONBERRY ALMOND SPICE‼️🥳

With a buttery sweet, nutmeg spiced dough base 🧈 + a good amount of crunchy sliced almonds 😋 + a tangy spread of lingonberries on top ❤️ = a soft, chewy, sweet, tangy, buttery, spicy, nutty, fruity cookie that I highly recommend eating upside down. 🙃 Why upside down? 🤨 Because the first flavor to hit your taste buds will be the lingonberries, giving your mouth a tangy, fruit explosion 💥 before you begin chewing the slightly crunchy, spicy nutmeg-almond cookie. ❤️‍🔥 Sooooo yummy! 😊 AND, in my biased opinion 😆, this cookie turned out to be quite pretty and just perfect for any holiday event. 🥰

Place your order today AND be sure to stop by The Beauty Lab today and try a free sample during their Black Friday SIP & SHOP event from 11 AM – 8 PM. 😃
