Fireflies & Honeysuckle is a brand built on childhood whimsy and a love for all things monogrammed. My name is Charlotte Sneed (I’ll answer to Charlie too), and I am the creator and owner of this biz! I have always held fond childhood memories of catching fireflies during our Pennsylvania summers, and the smell of honeysuckle wisping through the air in my parents backyard here in Houston, Texas. I love what those memories represent for me, and when I started this business (as a hobby), I knew the image matched the product I loved to create!
With a degree in elementary education, I was working full time as an elementary school teacher. I soon began my own family and started off monogramming my boys’ clothes for every occasion. Eventually that grew to include baby gowns, bibs and other gifts for friends who were beginning to grow their families too. Before I knew it, this embroidery obsession was no longer just a hobby, but something that I imagined doing full-time!
I have a passion for design and a creative eye. I always have an idea stirring in my mind and I love to bring those ideas to life with my own fancy flair! My friends know me as “the extra one”. I don’t own a t-shirt. I never leave my home undone. I carry a designer handbag and love a red bottom shoe. What can I say…I am a lady who loves the finer things in life! I love to take basics and kick them up a notch with an embroidered detail that catches the eye and stands out in a crowd. I love a trend, but pride myself on originality!
And so here we are today! I am a mom of 2 busy and quite handsome boys and a rascally pup! I am married to a JEEP loving adventurer, my best friend. I love a night on the town with my best girlfriends, staying in and puzzling with my mom and grandma over a yummy charcuterie board, a trip to market with my creatively genius brother, or any new adventure where there is a stunning sunset and some yummy wine. I bring the boojie to any occasion! Lastly, I am a busy boss babe!
I am so blessed by wonderful customers who keep on coming back for more! While I still offer an ongoing supply of newborn and baby gifting items, I continue to look for opportunities to expand into areas that grab my interests…whether its items for the home, mommy and me duos, or just something personalized that I’ve not seen before or really love. I have worked hard for many years building and developing a brand image that I love. I have learned along the way about quality craftsmanship and how to stand out in a crowd of threads and letters. The devil is in the details, after all! Thank you for being here and supporting my vision! I am so grateful for your love and support and hope to continue surprising and delighting you with my custom embroidery and designs!
