A few months ago while reading one of my very favorite blogs, A Bloomsbury Life , I was introduced to an amazing company called Ancient Industries. It is run by Megan Wilson who writes a blog and is a very talented artist. She designs the most extraordinary book jackets!
Imagine my excitement when my favorite stranger clad in his all brown attire rang the door bell to deliver my order! Inside the box were all my carefully selected items. I loved how they were wrapped in such a nostalgic way. The brown paper packages tied up with red and white string and the tags, reminiscent of old fashioned book plates, were a reminder of how a simple presentation can be quite thrilling!
I must advise a word of caution when visiting this site....the offerings are fantastic! I had more than a little difficulty trying condense my order to what I knew I needed and would use immediately. One of things that really made an impression on me is the carefully collected assortment of household goods from all over the world. In addition, I loved that several of the brushes are made by the visually impaired of Sweden.
