Our Very First Collection is Here! The Story behind The Designs
This little online shop has been such a long time coming- I can hardly believe opening day is finally here! Thank you so much for being one of the very first to show interest in our store; Your encouragement truly means the world to us. We have so many new products and ideas to share with you soon, but for now, let me tell you the story behind our very first collection, Native Pecan.
Fall days gathering native pecans... so many happy memories!
...The pecan trees on the playground of my childhood school that dropped a seemingly endless supply of treats to be cracked and nibbled during recess, or baked into decadent treats in the school's Fudge Room...
...The afternoon sunlight filtering through the leaves while my best friend and I helped her mother gather nuts on their family land along the Trinity. I should say, her mother did most of the gathering while my friend and I were busy popping seed pods...
...And sweet autumn at my grandparent's house- that one season of the year when we weren't cleaning pecan leaves out of the gutters, or picking up the endless dropped branches off the bare dirt that should have been covered in grass if it weren't just quite so shady- and we had all the tiny, sweet pecans we wanted.
Beautiful native pecans seem such a decidedly Texan symbol of fall, bounty, and hospitality. I wanted to create a print that captured the graceful branches, leaves and fruit of the tree that we know so well.
I hope you love it as much as I do!
