Loading

Note from shop owner Hello,
Laurel & Bliss is taking a temporary break while I focus on my Real Estate career in North East Tennessee. It is a busy time in the housing market and I feel that I need to be present and fully focused on helping my clients with their homes. Your business this year has meant so much to me and my team!! We are so grateful for the loyal following that we have here with Laurel & Bliss and are all looking forward to coming back and serving you, with your personalized gifts and home accessories, in the near future!

You may still find and follow us on Instagram and Facebook @laurelandbliss and, should you have a much needed gifting emergency, please message us on one of those two platforms as Etsy will be on "vacation mode" and we will not receive any messages here. If we have any jug vases on hand and are able to fulfill your order, we will still be happy to work with you to do so.

Again, we appreciate you all and will see you back here soon!


PS- If you're considering moving to Johnson City, TN or North East TN area, call me- I would SO ENJOY working with you! 423-388-9249
And, if you are buying or selling real estate in another area, or even another state, please reach out to me first and let me do a referral for you to another Realtor in my database... anywhere in the world! I would love to help make your home buying and selling experience more "personalized" (ya see what I did there, :) ) and smooth for you!

much love and gratitude,
Julie and the Laurel & Bliss team

New changes for Laurel & Bliss, LLC!

HOW THE BUSINESS STARTED
Laurel & Bliss was originally started by two friends, who met in college. After college, in 2010, Heather and Julie both attended the same church in eastern NC for a few years before Heather and her husband moved to SC. Not long after, I (Julie) got married and moved to TN. Though the states we have lived in have changed over the years, our friendship never has. In 2016, the Lord led Heather and her husband to continue their ministry at the church that my husband and I attend in east TN. This move brought with it the opportunity to live in the same town again, after all those years, and to pursue the dream we'd talked about for years- merging our personalization businesses and working together.

*Recently, Heather has taken a full time job pursuing her passion for the foster care ministry. We could not be more proud of her or happier for her.
Now, Laurel & Bliss, LLC is owned and operated by my husband (Philip) and myself (Julie). We are looking forward to the good things to come! We are so thankful to God for allowing us to have and to enjoy this business. We pray He continues to bless it!



HOW WE CHOSE OUR NAME
Heather and I had three thoughts: 1) We wanted some part of our name to represent where we are both now living in east TN, 2) We wanted some part of the name to give recognization to God for his handiwork in bringing this dream into existence, and 3) we liked the looks of those "leaf things". So, we met for coffee at a local coffee shop and brain stormed...This TN area we're living in is known for its laurel plants, and after some googling, we found out that those "leaf things" are actually called laurel leaves. So, that name "Laurel" already seemed fitting. We also found that laurels are a symbol of peace, which just made the name seem even more appropriate since we both recognize, and have experienced, the peace that God gives in life. We decided to add "Bliss" because it means joy! The peace of God and the joy that comes from knowing Him, led to the creation of Laurel and Bliss...

And, that's how Laurel & Bliss was born!

HOW WE GIVE BACK
Laurel & Bliss, LLC currently sponsors a child in Ethiopia, monthly. His name is Shibiru and we’d love it if you would join us in praying for him; for his safety, his needs to be met and for his life to be used in mighty and wonderful ways. The Lord has blessed this business, and our desire is that, as this business grows, so will the number of children that we can sponsor, support, and love. Your purchases are not just making great gifts or pretty decorations, they’re making CHANGES, for good, in the lives of this child and, prayerfully, more just like him. Thank you for making a difference.

A NOTE FROM JULIE AND PHILIP
We are grateful from the bottom of our hearts for YOU and your business. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you, through personalizing timeless pieces for your home and family. We hope you'll find us on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest too... take a second to say, Hi! We LOVE connecting with our customers!

Frequently asked questions
What is the size of the ceramic milk jug? And, does it come in other sizes?

The Ceramic Jugs are approx 5 inches in width, with an approx 3.5" opening and is approx. 10 inches tall. We use approximations as each one may vary just slightly during their curation. *We do not offer this item in any other sized at this time

Can I put water, with live flowers, in the ceramic milk jug vases?

IF YOU WILL BE USING LIVE FLOWERS, WE RECOMMEND USING A WATER CYLINDER INSIDE THE VASE, FOR HOLDING THE WATER, OR A WATER TRAY. TO AVOID LEAKING ONTO YOUR DISPLAY SURFACE.
Although there has not been issues reported, this is a suggested precaution as these ceramic vases are *NOT guaranteed waterproof. During the firing process that the ceramic containers go through, the heat can cause micro fractures in the glaze. The glaze is what would make the vase waterproof. Therefore, We cannot be held responsible for leaking jugs.

Is the personalization engraved, painted on, or vinyl?

The designs on the Ceramic milk jug are done in outdoor grade vinyl. This is the same type of vinyl used for vehicle decals. It is designed to withstand weathering and washing. Once the design is on the jug, it cannot be removed without "intentional" removal such as scraping with a sharp edge. This piece is created to be both unique and timeless and that is precisely why we make the design to last! We want it to be a personal piece- an heirloom- that you can treasure and pass down through the years.


The personalization on the Coir doormats is flocked. We offer both the original coir as well as the DURA-coir (all weather) doormats in the shop! More detail is provided when you click on the doormat listings.

Can I request a custom design?

Absolutely! Send a picture of a design you have in mind, or a description, and we will be happy to create it for you! There is no additional fee for custom designs.

Can I request a different font or color? And, is the color on the listing photos brown or black?

Different Font?: Absolutely! We offer an unlimited supply of fonts! Any font found on www.dafont.com we can use for you, at no additional cost!

Different Color?: Absolutely! If you want a different color, send a message and we'll see if we have it in stock. We keep most colors on hand, so if we do, we will certainly do that for you, at no extra cost to you! So, just ask!
*Doormats can only be done in black at this time*

*Standard personalization color for the ceramic milk jugs is a dark brown that looks black from a distance. This color looks best with the distressing on the jug and really stands out beautifully!

Why is shipping costly? And, do you offer WHOLESALE??

Shipping costs for items are estimated, at the time of your checkout, based on the items weight and where it is being shipped to. The price is then calculated and determined by USPS according to their standard rates. This service is integrated through Etsy. Since we do not control USPS, we cannot control or adjust the shipping prices that they charge us to send a vase, or other item, to you. Everybody has to make some money, honey :)


WHOLESALE:
We have before and we will again! Message to Inquire about wholesale Pricing and Options.
