bee's knees and honey tones

I love honey so much and in fact have a whole file on my computer devoted to just to pretty bottles of it. My latest honey quest comes in the above bottle with the red label. It is a white winter honey that is said to be from the frosty wildflower fields of the Idaho Rockies and has a creamy texture that melts like snow on the tongue. It is said to have a hint of fruit and cinnamon which happens to be ideal for scones and hot chocolate. In my life a jar full off really good honey goes a long way & is a staple. For my birthday I would not be opposed to having somebody sign me up for the honey of the month club at the Red Bee. I love that on Red Bee's site it gives the break down on how all of the different honeys taste.

I think honey toned colors also translate really well into rooms with its warm tones.

Well I get the fun opportunity to go to the Parade of Homes in St. George, Utah and will be leaving ASAP. Will you be there? I am excited to see the homes Alice Lane had a hand in decorating.

Have a great weekend if I don't see you tomorrow.

I started buying local honey recently because my husband has really bad allergies. Supposedly because the bees use local flowers, eating local honey is like getting an allergy shot of all your local pollens! A much sweeter way of dealing with hayfever.

I LOVE HONEY!!!! I use to eat it with just saltine crackers. One Question...how do you keep your figure and still indulge in all that sticky goodness? :) Maybe I should just collect the photos. :)

So funny, as I am reading your post I am actually enjoying a spoonful of raw honey. I usually have one in the morning but had forgotten. That honey you described sounds so good!

I do love that last bedroom. It's not my go to color, but its warm and peaceful and sophisticated.

I hope you enjoyed the home tour!

Mmm, that bathroom is so gorgeous and masculine!

Have you tried Manuka honey yet? It has a lovely taste and contains the highest amount of honey antibiotics. I sometimes use it in a mask with olive oil and sugar. So happy to have stumbled upon your blog today! It's lovely!!!

Meg said...

You are SO right about honey & honey tones ;) I'm LOVING the honey jars with the black stripes! Where can I buy those?!

We are currently hosting a hive in our yard for Ballard Bee Company (.com). I think you'd like his jar design too. The honey is fantastic, and the bees are fascinating.
