New Logo!

Our logo is finally here!! I am so thrilled, I can hardly contain myself. Before I unveil it, I would like to thank the lovely, talented Mary Lynch for this design. Mary is talented, right? In real life, she’s a graphic designer turned occupational therapist. Her patients and her friends are the luckiest. Thank you for creating this new logo for me, agreeing to do the banner for this website and the online shop. (Look for those changes very soon!) We can’t wait for the full design to be finished.  We want to get some clothes on this naked website! But for now, here she is:

Wow, right?! Right?! Let me hear some enthusiasm for Thistle’s new design! Mary, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. Thistle Confections would not be running without your beautiful design. Mary believed in me and my small little business from the get go. SOME people thought I was crazy. Not Mary. She graciously created this logo **gulp** for free. Because she is the best. Important life lesson: friends are the best assets in life. Mary, I’m not sure I can ever thank you enough.

Welcome to the new home of Hilary Bee!  In the next few weeks, Thistle Confections will be up and running with a new blog, an online shop, and a whole lot of sugar. It was a hard decision to rebrand my business, start a new website, and make my creative pursuits a full time gig. But I’m doing it.  I’m doing it because YOU- my family, friends, and readers encouraged me.  Follow me, stumbles and all, on the next big adventure of my life.


You must be asking, why Thistle?

Thistle is understated, warm, and natural. Thistle is the blending of cultures; a place where Scottish shortbread is appreciated alongside heirloom Italian cookies. Thistle is where memories and reality fuel creativity.

Thistle is not about flashy. We don’t believe in couture brownies and the next must have! ingredient. We search for the highest quality, best tasting, natural and locally sourced ingredients. We are Dayton proud.  We strive to build lasting relationships with local farmers and honor their hard work in our products.

But most of all, Thistle is about taking chances. Thistle is the opportunity to grow, and grow, and grow.
