Stay Cozy

"Winter is the time for comfort,
for good food and warmth,
for the touch of a friendly hand
and for a talk beside the fire.
It is the time for home."
~ Edith Sitwell

I was greeted by this poem when I opened my January
Texas Market Box. 
Even the Gulf Coast of Texas is having winter this year.
I've given up trying to save the tropicals.
There will be a lot of planting in the spring!

Back to the Texas Market Box!

My Texas Market

I've been subscribing to the Texas Market box for several years now.
I've never been disappointed with the contents.
Always something I've not seen before and fun! 

Here's how the Texas Market folks describe their service:

"My Texas Market is a subscription-based delivery service that sends  carefully curated packages filled with small-batch, artisan items from  farmers’ markets and local Texas businesses to customers each month.   Our purpose is to expose consumers to great new products and companies,  offer vendors a new market, encourage the support of local artisan  businesses, and simply share our love for the Texas farmers' market with  people who might not be able to enjoy it in person."

Hot Chocolate Cocoa

Hot chocolate for the Cozy mug!

"warm up with a cup of hot cocoa made with a blend of dark and milk Belgian dark chocolate this winter. Andrea Pedraza and daughter Cindy create pure chocolate confections that serve to make sweet memories."

I didn't remove the Royal Vanilla Moisturizing Cream and Lip Balm
from it's packaging. I wanted to give you an idea of how things are shipped.

From Hooga Organic Skincare in McKinney, TX
"Hooga is a family of skincare products that are specially formulated in a very natural and organic way. These products were born from the idea of healthier, simpler and essential way of life.

The Hooga Royal Vanilla Moisturizing Cream is ideal for a deep, powerful or overnight moisturizing session. This new formula combines avocado and olive oil with the lovely aromas of vanilla and a hint of tangerine.

The Hooga Lip Balm will protect and moisturize your lips." 

Their products can be found at Hooga Skin Care

That's it!

It will definitely help keep me cozy this winter!

Subscriptions to curated boxes of locally-produced foods and handicrafts are just now starting to appear in our area. It's an interesting way to get a surprise every month! Your package is full of great things!

I've lived in Texas all my life and never heard of this delightful box of treats. Looks really good....

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Since I LOVE Texas and lived there most of my life, I really should check into this. I love what you've shown and it's fun to get surprises in the mail. I'm going to look at this (it's my birthday this week...why not! heehee) Hugs, Diane

Pam Richardson said...

This must be so much fun to receive every month! I loved every item!

Dorothy Borders said...

Love that mug and the MLK quote. Very appropriate.

Maggie said...

Love the idea of supporting small businesses this way, I'm going to send this post to some friends who live in Dallas in case they've not heard of these entrepreneurs before.
Glad to have your company for MM this week.

Jeanie said...

Perfect poem for these cold days. And seeing that cocoa is sending me straight to the kitchen. It's cocoa time!

Angie said...

It's like celebrating your birthday every month! Enjoy!

Lorrie said...

It would be fun to get a surprise package in the mail every month. A great idea! The chocolate looks yummy. I think Texas is colder than we are this year (west coast-Canada). Crazy!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

The Texas Market basket looks like a nice treat to receive, Snap. I'll have to see if there is a similar box for Colorado.

We've been having a very mild winter so far --- I'm not complaining! ;)

Love both of those quotes! And what a great assortment of cozy items - it's so nice to support small businesses.
