Mountain Crest Gardens

mountain crest gardens greenhouse

Mountain Crest Gardens™ is a family owned and operated succulent nursery established in 1995, located in the scenic Scott Valley of Northern California near Mt. Shasta.

Echeveria Collection Small (5)

Echeveria Collection

An assortment of five plants. Arrived individually paper bag wrapped healthy and ready for planting. Three were whisked away by an admirer. The two I kept are planted together in a metal container. They both have slight touches of pink and I’m wanting to find a cute little snowman or polar bear to add. We will see how they like growing at my house (a succulent newbie)

This is a hot trend for their low maintenance and wondrous variety. An individual plant makes a great (& simple) teacher gift. Or hostess gift. Or office co-worker gift. {you get the idea} Would you consider adding succulents to your holiday decorating?

Stylish & Organic active lifestyle wear for the socially-conscious

The Sanskrit word, Satva, is a state of mind in which the mind
is steady, calm and peaceful. Satva means pure.

Wow someone this Christmas with Satva fashion. The two Satva items I’ve reviewed below are absolutely wonderful. These are clothes that are “free from chemicals including: bleaches, toxic waxes, sulfur and heavy metals commonly used in the production of clothing.” This is so refreshing a find. {I’ve given up with most retail apparel shopping because what’s offered is scratchy, chemical smelly, gaudy-dyed stuff}

Our company is located in Washington state. All of our products are hand made from fresh evergreens boughs from the Pacific Northwest, right in our own back yard. At Lynch Creek Farm, we never cut down trees. Our boughs are trimmed from lower tree branches to ensure a lifetime of bough production and come mostly from the Cascade Mountains, near Mount St. Helens, on either permitted government or private land. We procure all of our fresh evergreens by using the most sustainable and earth-friendly practicesWe love our home, the plants and animals that call these forests home, and want to ensure that this home will be healthy and thriving for all generations that follow.
I highly recommend Lynch Creek Farms for holiday wreaths, centerpieces, garlands, table top trees, et cetera. Huge selection. Forest freshness. GORGEOUS.

“Our trendy Gold Deluxe holiday wreath combines fragrant noble fir with the luster of the salal leaf. The noble fir and salal are accented with juniper and incense cedar. The Gold Deluxe holiday wreath also sports an elegant gold bow and clusters of gold berries; along with 3 ponderosa pine cones.
Review: This arrived bag in box from WA. A full arrangement of greenery. Judging from the freshness of the wreath now, I’m certain it will stay bright green throughout the holidays. Ready to hang, this is the best wreath I’ve seen anywhere!

Christmas Stamp Set - perfect for seasonal crafting, cardmaking, scrapbooking. Get festive and creative.

Our festive Christmas Stamp Set is perfect for crafting unique and quirky seasonal cards, pictures and gifts. With cute gingerbread men and magical shooting stars.

Our customers often use these for also printing on to fabric such as bags or cushions.

Each stamp measures 3.5cm x 3.5cm and are made to a high standard for use time and time again.

For best results use with pigment ink. Place your card, paper or fabric on a magazine or piece of folded fabric before stamping. This softens the surface under your project, leading to a better stamp result. If you prefer a more vintage or faded look, place your card, fabric or paper directly on to a work surface.

Pretty assortment of holiday designs for getting festive & creative. Great gift idea, too. Handmade by Lara in Seaford, United Kingdom. You can also get a snowflake set and a baubles (ornament) set. I personally like choosing an option that’s not made in China. My little one and I are looking forward to spending an afternoon getting into the holiday season with these fun stamps (and a hot cup of coffee).

Calia Natural USA

Calia is a small beauty products company located on Canada’s west coast. We care about creating the best natural products, without compromise.

Calia Essential Oil Starter Ensemble

 

Calia Essential Oil Starter Ensemble

Review: Included in the starter ensemble are five popular oils (Eucalyptus, Lavender, Peppermint, Rosemary, and Tea Tree), Sweet Almond Carrier Oil, Vanilla (although not a true essential oil), and two of their blends called Breathe Easy and Sleep Easy. The 10 ml size makes for easy sharing. A great starter set for a holiday gift (hostess gift). 

Hair Care

I also tried their Hydrating Shampoo and Hydrating Conditioner. Both products are enriched with silicia (horsetail extract), something I haven’t seen in natural hair care. They have a light fragrance from Lavender, Bergamot and Rose Geranium essential oils. The website is easy to use with product ingredient are clearly shown. 

Do you love trying new natural beauty products? Or know someone who does? (Calia Natural Gift Card)
