mermade brooklyn, ny makes THE most charming hand-embroidered tea towels, baby gifts and more!
Happy Happy Monday!
I am super excited about today’s post, because it combines three of my favorite things!
Favorite Thing #1: A beautiful small business
During this time I am trying more than ever to support small businesses. As a small business myself I am hurting for all the makers and creators out there who don’t have the means and reach of larger companies, and are taking such a big hit right now. So I’m thrilled to share one of my very favorite small businesses: Mermade Brooklyn, NY!
Mermade Brooklyn, NY is the shop run by the very talented Meredith Siegel. There you will find sweet, cheeky, beautiful and one-of-a-kind hand embroidered pillows, sweatshirts, tea towels, baby items and more. If you are looking for a truly unusual handmade gift, look no further. This is just a sample of Meredith’s handiwork; there is truly nothing she can’t do (product photos courtesy of Meredith Siegel)!
Favorite Thing #2: Anything citrus
I love love love all things citrus – especially at this time of year, when it feels relentlessly gray and I’m longing for warm sunny weather. So I jumped for joy when Young Living introduced their brand new hand soap, Lushious Lemon. I wish you could smell this right now; I’m obsessed! It’s infused with Lemon, Lemon Myrtle, Spearmint and Ylang Ylang essential oils – and of course zero synthetic chemicals. And just look at this packaging!
I thought of Meredith immediately, and asked her if she would create tea towels inspired by Lushious Lemon. She was all in, which leads me to………..
Favorite Thing #3: A giveaway!
I’m delighted to give three lucky winners a full-sized bottle of Lushious Lemon soap and a beautiful hand-embroidered tea towel. You can keep the set for yourself or give it as a gift – Mother’s Day is around the corner!
