Sweet Everlasting’s namesake takes us back 13 years to a woman named Connie Wilson, my husband’s grandmother.
Connie loved decorating and made a point to fill her home with everything she adored, specially vintage and farmhouse-style decor. She enjoyed picking wildflowers from the fields of their Western North Carolina estate and used the dried wildflowers to spruce up her home. Her favorite wildflower, which smelled of maple syrup and filled the home with a sweet aroma, was called sweet everlasting. After fighting an unexpected battle, Connie passed away in 2005 from early-onset Alzheimer’s at the age of 57. She was known for her unconditional love, patience, and passion, and had a great impact on everyone who knew her. Her impact is still present today and will now live on through Sweet Everlasting.
