Tilton Hollow Farm

Tilton Hollow Farm is a historic property located in Ohio, owned and run by Jeff Wince and Chad Snelling.  What started as a dream of theirs to own a bucolic farm and leave the city life behind them, has turned into a full-fledged cottage industry of a farm, a brand, a lifestyle and a movement.  Jeff and Chad espouse the time-honored traditions of sustainable farming, animal husbandry, beekeeping and soap making; the latter being their brand's core product. 

The property of Tilton Hollow dates back to 1823, established by Nehemiah and Mary Tilton.  It has been said that Nehemiah's secrets to living a good, long life was to work hard outdoors and to eat healthful foods, from the land no doubt, in only the necessary quantities to sustain him.  It is these beliefs, along with the ideas of growing and raising their own food in a humane and sustainable way, promoting the benefits of supporting local farms, that Jeff and Chad have taken to heart in their mission to making Tilton Hollow Farm a lifestyle brand.  

The care that both Jeff and Chad put into making their goat milk soaps, is what sets their product above the rest.  Made by hand in small batches on site, each soap contains the highest percentage of goat milk possible, along with saponified oils, essential oils and other natural ingredients.  The goat milk soap product line is kept simple and streamlined in order to minimize waste in production.  Availability may vary from season to season, but rest assured that whatever you order, it is made fresh and will arrive beautifully packaged. 

Sharing the bounty of the garden with friends, family and neighbors, keeping goats, bees, heritage turkeys and chickens healthy and happy, creating great bath and body products from their flock of contented goats, along with raising awareness about sustainable farming and supporting local farms, is what the gentleman of Tilton Hollow are all about. 

If you haven't had the pleasure of visiting their website, I highly suggest you do so to get better acquainted with their full line of bath and body products, their family recipes, their guest appearances around the country, and their estimable way of life.

Antique Salt Cellars

There was a time when salt cellars played an important role on the dining table for the host or hostess.  As a result of it being such an expensive commodity several hundred years ago, salt was seen as a luxury and it was the well to do that made salt cellars quite fashionable & a status symbol for the home.  A single salt cellar usually sat at the head of the table and was passed around throughout the meal.  The closer one sat to the salt cellar, the more important one was deemed by the head of the household.  Smaller cellars that were more accessible and with an open top became a part of Victorian table settings.  Fast forward to the 20th century when salt was no longer a luxury and when anti caking agents were added to make salt free-flowing, and one begins to see salt cellars fall out of fashion.  Luckily for the collector and for those of us who like to set a table with Good Things , this can prove to be a boon. Salt cellars for the table come in silver, porcelain, cut glass

Vintage Wilton Wedding Cakes

Wedding cakes have certainly evolved over the decades just as tastes and styles have in our American way of life.  There was a time when elaborate & very formal towering feats of sweetness were the standard for every bride & groom.  Growing up in a household where I witnessed several wedding cakes take shape from start to finish, I can tell you  that every single one of these was a true labor of love.  For mom, Wilton was the go-to supplier in every aspect of cake baking, including the wedding cakes which flew out of our house every single year for friends & family.   Vintage Wedding Cake Toppers It’s fun going back and looking at Wilton’s methods and styles for wedding cakes during the 1960s and 1970s.  Back then, the shapely cakes were not simply stacked and covered in perfect fondant the way they are these days, but were iced and decorated with real buttercream, along with a multitude of accessories.  There was even a working fountain available that could b
