What inspired you to start your business?
Sweet Magnolia Home started making candles, soap, bath salts, potpourri, and wreaths many years ago. Unhappy with other products on the market, I wanted to make something better-more natural for our skin, the air we breathe, and more environmentally friendly to our shared planet. Natural living and self-nurturing take a great deal of mindfulness. It also sets a good example for our future generations. It is there where I am able to tap into the source that feeds my creativity making the possibilities seem endless. It is an inherent gift received from Spirit, for which I am most grateful and wish to share with others.
What makes your house a home?
I always say that it's not enough to have a home that just looks good. It needs to feel good and smell good too. Home, is an all-encompassing sensory experience that allows others to grasp the essence of who we are. My home has a happy combination of family heirlooms, traditional furniture, with layers of fragrance and textures for added warmth. Home is my sanctuary, it warms, comforts, nourishes, and protects.
Why did you choose to be part of the Nest? :)
I became a Northport Village resident in 1998. I was drawn here by a feeling of "coming home"! Nest On Main, has this same type of energy that's warm and inviting. It draws you in with feelings of familiarity and surprise. The music is soothing, the fragrances are inviting, and the decor and accents of old and new, appeal to the many aspects of ourselves and in our own lives that we call home.
