Plans & Excitement

August 18, 2015

Lately we have all been working very hard, in different ways, to get everything in order and prepared for the holidays. Since we're in the hottest part of the year it may sound strange to be spending time thinking about the holidays, but we have to start early. Once that gift giving season begins we'll wish we had started getting ready in January! My task has been to get this site in perfect order, including doing all new product photography. It has been a lot of work, but it has also been really enjoyable and I am so thrilled with the way things are looking around here. 

Next to replacing all of the product images with fresh, vibrant new photography, I have been working really hard to get this blog in order and ready for some amazing content. Our goal is to keep this blog freshened up with informative and inspirational posts that you will find truly helpful and enjoyable. I don't want to give away any secrets, but have a long list of projects we're working on for this space. We won't be posting more than once a week. Instead of focusing on quantity of posts, we will be focusing on quality. Just to give you an idea and to tease your palate a bit, we will be covering a variety of topics including recipes, tutorials, inspirational decor & entertaining ideas, behind the scenes and special events like giveaways, contests and collaborations!

I'm looking forward to it so very much.

Warmly, Loran

P.S. Oh, by the way! We do have a very, very exciting event coming up on instagram! I can't say much, but it involves a chance to win a lot of wonderful products including, but not limited to, dreamware! If you aren't following us over there yet, hurry and do so! You really don't want to miss out on this. Trust me.

A Peek Into the Process - Carving Measuring Spoons

August 21, 2015

Lately, I've been sharing behind the scenes video footage on Instagram and our followers have enjoyed them so much. But the 15 second limit makes it difficult to actually show a process, so I'm finally getting around to sharing some footage here on the blog! This isn't as fancy as what I have been dreaming of doing, but I know you'll enjoy it anyway! I hope to share more and better behind the scenes documentation soon.

Gâteau aux Trois Baies - with Honey Ricotta

August 20, 2015

This rustic dessert is wonderful for when you want something delectable and a little sweet, but also something substantive and fairly wholesome. It's really just Rustic Triple Berry Cobbler Cake, but it sounds so much classier as Gâteau Rustique aux Trois Baies ... and it really does taste enchanting enough to earn the fancier name.
