We are delighted to present the 1922 Blend product collection, developed in collaboration with La Fonda on the Plaza in Santa Fe. The collection celebrates La Fonda’s 100-year anniversary with a custom-blended signature scent that can be enjoyed as a handmade soap, room mist and candle. Both properties were designed by architect, John Gaw Meem and share a rich history of hospitality. Los Poblanos evolved into an inn as part of a preservation project, and La Fonda has been a model of the great New Mexican hospitality experience.

Celebrating San Ysidro Day

San Ysidro mural by Paul hurd

Today marks the feast day of San Ysidro, the patron saint of farmers, gardeners and laborers. An important figure around the farm, his remarkable story has been told for centuries. Ysidro and his wife, Maria, were poor farm laborers who went to mass every morning before going to work. Yet despite the hours of lost labor, the fields and plants were as well cared for as those of other laborers. When other farm workers became envious and told the landowner, it was discovered that while Ysidro and Maria were praying at mass, an angel was plowing their fields for them.
