JANUARY: PLANT MONTH
January is all about renewal - new year, new you. Whether or not you're making a resolution, the intentions you set at the start of a new year have the power to impact the way you handle yourself over the next 12 months.
January is plant month at Thistle because plants are the perfect representation of our January energy: ready for some fresh growth. A respite from the excess of the holiday season, plants remind us to nourish our roots while moving forward with purpose.
January's HANDPICKED features our favorite plant-themed items to keep you focused on growth all month long.
FOR THE BEAUTY-OBSESSED: CREOSOTE SUNSCREEN FOR DESERT-DWELLERS
Living in the desert of the American Southwest, we're never off the hook from thinking about sun protection. Sonoran Rosie is a small, woman-owned Tucson business focusing on making beauty products in a sustainable way. All of her products are made in small batches with local & organic botanicals, recycled paper labels, and minimal plastic.
We love Sonoran Rosie's Desert Sun creosote sunscreen. Desert Sun smells like Tucson after a monsoon, making it the perfect gift for a Tucson local or a visitor looking to revisit that magical time in our desert. Desert Sun isn't oily at all - we love it for our delicate facial skin. And since it's made with all-natural materials, including our abundant Sonoran creosote, it's the perfect addition to Plant Month.
FOR THE LOVER OF TINY THINGS: HANDMADE CERAMIC CACTI
There's something about miniatures that is so endearing and cute, you don't need a reason to covet them. These super-tiny ceramic cacti were hand-formed and glazed by ceramicist Jane Pursley of Helena, Montana, in her private studio.
The smallest size of Jane's cacti stands an inch high, and the largest fits in your palm like a little orange. No two pieces are identical, making these adorable little guys the perfect collection piece. And when you feel the weight of the cold, smooth ceramic against your hand, you don't need any other reason to take a cacti home.
Jane Pursley's ceramics are available exclusively through Thistle.
