  1. I’ve never been to Williamsburg, but my sister went there and brought me back hand laid paper, feather quill, and wax seals one time. The next time it was honey lip balm and lavender water in a thick glass bottle with a cork. I know it’s probably a very idealized reconstruction, but there is definitely something appealing about simpler times, when things were made with an attention to quality and endurance. I love the look of glass jars all lined up and filled with different textures and colors. I should get around to making labels for my bulk bin items one of these days!

    • I do love the idea of goods being handmade, with attention to quality and detail. It’s very cool that in Colonial Williamsburg they still craft things as they did then (including hand-hewing logs and forging nails to use in the buildings they renovate!).
