Well, it's #NationalIceCreamDay and probably one of the best "holidays" I can think of. Summer in the South brings no greater treat than ice cream. And in my opinion, there are some things that simply can't get any better than homemade and ice cream is definitely at the top of my list.
Today's celebration doesn't just end with ice cream, but with the launch of a brand new item in our Southern Artisan Collection as we team up with local Atlanta hand-lettering artist Erica Loesing of Yes Ma'am Paper Goods for our new Family Recipe Card + Cloth gift sets.
Oh my goodness if this doesn't capture the essence of an heirloom, I just don't know what does. This one is near and dear to my heart. I am so fortunate to have handwritten recipe cards from my mother, grandmother & great grandmother's collections - but I know not everyone is this fortunate. And even more so, I know in the future these authentic gifts will become even more scarce.
This gift set captures memories, tastes and ingredients of a loved ones most beloved recipe, beautifully hand scripted and meticulously designed on both a recipe card, as well as textured towel, making a treasured keepsake and special gift. Helping a family recipe to live on for generations gives this gift an even more powerful meaning.
And, as a perk, here are two delicious ice cream recipes from some of the samples that Erica designed and that we shot for the launch of these beauties - Mom's Favorite Ice Cream and Blueberry Lavender Ice Cream.
I'd love to know if you have a special family recipe for ice cream, too! And, hope you'll pop over to the shop to see some of the other family recipes we styled up for this extra special new product!
