We love that each card was hand-signed. You can’t put a price on something that is wrapped and created with so much care.

If you check out their website, you’ll see that their motto is: all-organic. creative. hand-blended. small batch.  And you really can tell just from looking at it.  It looks fabulous.

Now let’s go ahead and brew some and see if it lives up to it’s visual appeal!

This tea smelled and tasted amazing. I normally drink boring old English Breakfast tea, but when this was in my hands I kept being a really bad product model by actually drinking too much of this tea—so we had to keep refilling it!

I highly recommend investigating Plum Deluxe to snatch up a couple of teas for yourself or as hostess gifts, or even signing up for a subscription (we love getting monthly mail)!

Thanks so much again Plum Deluxe!

Her lovely info card reads:

100% Handmade with Love by White Peach Pottery

Your new mug & spoon are 100% handmade by artist Marianne Tolosa, of White Peach Pottery, in the state of Virginia. She worked as a barista at independent coffee shops for 7 years, which gave her a real appreciation of the perfectly sized latte bowl (which you now hold in your hand).

Each mug is thrown on the potter’s wheel before being hand-altered and decorated with 14k gold luster.  They’re high fired three times throughout the process!  Because of the gold, your mug isn’t microwave safe, and don’t forget to give this beauty the TLC it deserves—hand-washing is recommended!

Artist Info card for the Vegan Faux Leather Handmade Clutch:

Lacy is a serious fabric addict based out of northern Utah.  She graduated from Utah Valley University in 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Management.  Lacy is a proud military spouse to a loving husband, and a momma to 2 sweet boys that keep her busy with legos, messy rooms, and lots of cuddles. Her passion for fabric and creating guided her into creating an online business.

Lacy’s favorite part of the design process is shopping for the perfect fabric combinations.  She loves coming up with new designs for her shop and watching them come together in real life.  She makes each item herself on her vintage sewing machine in her basement, all while snacking on Swedish Fish and watching TV series on Netflix.

This clutch was handcrafted with the idea of making you feel hip and confident.  It is the perfect design for a night on the town, yet functional enough to be used every day.  Its roomy interior keeps all your essentials together while its mixed-media design gives you an urban-chic look. T his particular clutch was designed specifically for Fair Ivy—and you!
