This is actually for two related logos. They need to sit happily side by side so will need something in common.
The first logo is for a Coffee and Tea house that caters to a discerning crowd and offers coffee, home-branded, made-to-order teas and healthy food. 'Down to Earth' was the chosen name because I want it to be earthy and real. I don't want people thinking 'hippy' however so it can't look 'home-made'. It has to translate well into black and white so that I can stamp the logo onto paper bags/serviettes etc without requiring colour. Thoughts I've had include a leaf ...(please don't do a coffee bean- that's been done to death)...
The second part of the concept: a number of wellbeing services which will be marketed from the Coffee and Tea House and provided in nearby or adjacent premises, (ideally upstairs) eg life and business coaching, Chinese massage, meditation, Reiki, etc. There should be no religious symbology at all, but other sorts of symbols are fine.
Something that night be cute is a tree for Down to Earth with a bird on a branch for Heaven on Earth (though not a dove- too religious). I love the 'seasons' series at http://www.studiooat.com.au/product…s/seasons/
Even just the words with the right treatment would be fine.

Good luck! I look forward to your designs.
