Did you know that Fern in ancient times was actually “fearn” which meant Feather? Okay, we are obviously geeking out over here with postage stamp facts, but can you blame us? These recently released Fern Forever Stamps are so darn pretty, they got us on a fern kick over here! That being said, naturally we are pairing it with one of our favorite things from around the shop, – The wild fern candle by Linnea’s Lights. I wish our computer screens had a scratch & sniff option so you could smell the crisp, clean, leafy fragrance it burns. A perfect summertime scent!
We did a fun little round from around the shop this morning of some perfect hostess gifts to bring, when the usual bottle of wine isn’t enough. Sweet recipe boxes, shopping lists, guest books, special candles and food-centered paper goods will make any domestic goddess swoon. I mean, who would ever turn-up a nose to those clever herb sticky flags?!
Every year, as school season comes to an end, we have an influx of mothers looking for perfect appreciation gifts for their child’s teachers.

Now I’m off to the last kindergarten field trip of the year. (sniff) Happy Weekend! *A
