A customer favourite.

Custom batch of sprays/aroma mists for one of our loyal customers. It's fun to look at our various label styles. They take these aroma mists everywhere and asked to keep the labels. The Lavender for sunburns, Calm Coast for it's calming effect, Pain Relief for long hours gardening, Peppermint for Headaches and it's cooling effect. It was their inspiration that developed our Pain Relief spray.

In an effort to post more often posts will be short and sweet.

We've released a new limited edition Organic Lemon Grove Soap. Imagine walking into a Lemon grove and fresh zesty scent fills the air.

NOW. It's canning season right now. You. Can. DO THIS.

Never fails, when the cold weather returns I start craving jam.  Jam on bread, on toast, by the spoonfuls - its a desperation and longing for the warm summer months.

So last year I bought a flat of berries with the intent to can them.  But first I had to eat a few.  Then sprinkled a few on ice cream and cake and of course on my breakfast granola.  By the end of the week, I had a handfuls of berries left, not enough to can.  So I cheated and put them in the freezer and forgot about them.

Can I tell you the pure bliss of one cold January morning when I was sure we'd never see the sun again.  And I saw the bag of berries nestled deep in the freezer.  Gingerly I lifted the sweet morsels of sunshine out and put them in a pot to make a sauce for my dismally naked waffles.  Spooned the berries onto my plate and actually started purring like a cat.  There was hope.  A few berries transformed the dismal, grey rainy day into dreaming of summer and flip flops and long tea breaks on the lanai.

So now its your turn.  I found this article that has me planning my shopping list for this Wednesday's visit to the Victoria Public Market at the Hudson.  Together, we can do this.  We can get our island fresh berries and fruit and can up some summer dreaming that will be ready for us when old man winter makes his return.

See you at the Hudson, I am hoping The Grocer still has those cherries!!

Behold the Dream. The Promise.

We're 12.  Celebrating 12 years of being the creatives behind Two Blooms Design Studio.  We did actually think that we'd be rich and flying our private jet between our houses around the world (well, one of us did).

Instead, we live in one of the best places in the world (we've travelled and we still think this:) and we still create the best product we can.  And now we're branching out.  We not only make the finest soap around but we've moved into lifestyle must haves.  Our reclaimed hand painted signs have sold out and I can't keep up with demand.  We're making our own chalk paint (no we're not selling it, its for my use only:) and painting furniture and selling that.  Our long/clean burning non gmo eco-soy candles are a must have for your summer and on it goes.

So to celebrate I am re-launching our blog with a commitment to keep you up to date on where we are and what we're creating because to be honest, there are a few things scheduled for a fall launch that has me giddy with anticipation.

So thank you for keeping up with us and we promise the next 12 days, 12 weeks, 12 months to introduce you to even more things that we think are worthy of the Two Blooms Design Studio stamp of approval.

Here's to summer and new dreams and new promises.
