#1,854 Baguette Breakfast + Scotsman Co.

I woke up this morning and (happily) remembered the personal-size homemade baguettes Mrs. Holly brought by yesterday and my mouth was watering before the butter could melt. Mmmmm…

And, I’m ready and willing to confess right here and now: I buy Bonne Maman jam because of the packaging. It makes me feel Frenchy and fancy even though I am just a Mississippi girl who has never seen France in person. The jam tastes the same as Smuckers. Emily knows what I’m saying.

It was one of those days at work when I had the rare pleasure of spending most of it working on my own passion projects. The emails piled up and the phone wouldn’t stop ringing, but I pushed through and worked on some branding possibilities for our two new online shops (yes—in addition to the wedding collection). I’m whooped, but Ben will have his own brand when I lay my head down to sleep tonight.

I mean, can we actually do this? Run 3 online stores? Do people do that?

  1. If anyone can do it, it's you. I'm sure you'll do an amazing job!
    Bonnemaman is a brand we have here as well and it tastes great, it's true 🙂

  2. You go, girl!

    When Ben needs his kilt made, there is a shop in Asheville, NC that can get him all hooked up.


  3. Absolutely you can do it and you will do it well!

    Funny comment about the jam – I thought the same and admit, I often buy products based on the packaging. I always fall for great marketing.

  4. I buy Bonne Maman jam too–for the exact same reason 🙂 I know y'all can do it! Y'all are such a power couple.

    I am still in awe of your artistic skills. What kind of brush are you using? I am trying to learn watercolor.

    • Ha, thank you SO much, Meegan! I just told Christy below about the brushes–they're really good, inexpensive little brushes!

  5. So crazy, just last evening I was reading this historical, nonfiction book called Aristocrats, and the narrative had just introduced this family of Napiers from Scotland. I just love how y'all use your roots in all your branding. I'm sure you shall see France someday soon!

    Y'all are just taking off. And I am with Meegan–what brush(es) do you use?

    • Dude, those Scotland Napiers are a big deal apparently. Ben's ancestor invented logarithms. Too bad I don't have any of those math skills!

      The brushes I'm using for everything lately are both Royal & Langnickel: the monogram mini Majestic 30/0 and angular shader mini majestic 12/0. I'm in love with them both for this tiny lettering I've been doing.
