NEW! Our Favorite Things and What is Hygge?
This is SO exciting! Starting January 2019! We will be sharing our Favorite Things with our friends and customers at Thistlehillbotanicals.com.
What is Hygge?
People in Denmark are considered to be the happiest people in the world. And that’s where the happiness research institute is located. A danish word I’ve learned recently is “hygge” (sounds like hoo-ga) . The loose translation for this for this word is a sense of comfort togetherness and well-being. It seems to me that these are the things that make us HAPPY!
Personally in my life I’ve been making an effort to simplify and have less. The remaining things that I choose to surround myself with give me joy.
I hope that the recipients of these products will feel special as I do every time I open up the journal cover to write, or pull out my legal pad, Or happen to notice the pretty tassel on my pocketbook.
These products truly are my favorite things. They are products and things that give me joy and I wish to share them with you.
What Types of Products?
Unique, quality products hand selected by Thistlehillbotanicals.com. Some are botanically inspired! Here is what we know so far:
- Pure Soy Candles in Recycled Wine Bottles, Made in USA, NO toxic metal in the wicks and they smell amazing! Best of all you can choose to reuse the “bottle” as a vase or glass when the candle is done burning 80 hours!
- Stunning Illustrated Journals, Greeting Cards and more.
The first products will be on our website very soon!
Write it Down! Journal Writing
Surely you have heard this before, so I will not spend much time on this soapbox. Journal writing is SO healing and therapeutic! One of the best lessons on journaling I ever learned is from Julia Cameron author of The Artist’s Way. Here it is in her words:
“Morning Pages are three pages of longhand, stream of consciousness writing, done first thing in the morning. *There is no wrong way to do Morning Pages*–they are not high art. They are not even “writing.” They are about anything and everything that crosses your mind– and they are for your eyes only. Morning Pages provoke, clarify, comfort, cajole, prioritize and synchronize the day at hand. Do not over-think Morning Pages: just put three pages of anything on the page…and then do three more pages tomorrow.”
This is one form of journaling, there are others. Consider trying it for at least 28 days (It takes that time to develop a habit) I use cheap pads for my morning pages, and lovely journals for the more in depth and cohesive journal writing.
Full Service – Gift Wrapping & Cards Too!
Our spectacular products are chosen because they are uniquely special. We are choosing gifts that are priced reasonably. There will even be a few cards available for your convenience. (We will even handwrite your message in the card) Gift wrapping will also be available.
Because we believe that quality customer service is important, and we will prove it to you. We will make you look great as a gift giver!
Our wish for all of you is a life full of Hygge, because it is something we ALL need more of.
