Now, lets dive in and explore this months awesomeness! 

January, 2018 Box

The theme of the January box fresh starts and new resolutions. Its also about taking risks.  We are really redirecting our box toward exclusive, original Jane Austen items and teas that are different from what you find at your local supermarket.

* * * * *

Teadrops TeasFirst up is a tea recommendation from a Pembertea subscriber (Thuy - you know who you are <wink>) Tea Drops is fa woman-owned business started and based in the lovely state of California. They have created a new version of dissolving tea that doesn't require a tea bag or strainer - and creating a new way to do tea after 3,200 years is a pretty substantial achievement! 

USDA organic grade teas with a lil touch of organic cane sugar added for sweetness make a delicious cuppa.  And we have given you caffeinated (pink pouch of Rose Earl Grey) and non-caffeinated (green pouch with Sweet Peppermint) options to try out.  If you fall in love with these teas, they can be ordered at www.myteadrop.com and have recently been selling on Amazon as well.

Handmade PapersNext, we offer a beautiful pack of five handmade, recycled papers with a modified quill included.  We decided not to add india ink to the box, as all we would need is for one of them to break and the Post Office would never let us mail again. LOL! But, we couldn't resist the craftsmanship of these papers from Southern California craftswoman, Tina of the Paper Recyclery! 

Each sheet is individually hand-pulled, leaving it with beautiful deckle edges. These papers are cardstock weight and the pulp is made from recycled office waste with added 20-30% cotton to improve the texture and edges. The paper has tiny black speckles from the ink in the papers that were recycled. The artist has added internal sizing to the pulp so your ink will never bleed or feather. You can use them for calligraphy, stamping, metallic foil, letterpress, watercolor, acrylic paint as well as a well crafted note to a loved one.If you would like to see more of her creations, they can be found at: www.etsy.com/shop/PaperRecyclery.

Pemberley Kitchen TowelOur exclusive, custom-designed Pemberley kitchen towel will become your go-to wipe for kitchen tasks.  Measuring a generous 30" x 36," these low lint, 100% cotton, pre-washed four sack towels are perfect for all all kitchen cleanup.  And the design speaks what we all feel - that our bodies may be in our kitchen, but our heart is dancing and laughing at Pemberley!

* * * * *

Starter Charm BraceletAnd last, but by no means least is the first in a series of 12 items that, when finished, will create our complete 2018 Jane Austen charm bracelet. Included in this box is the initial starter bracelet, made from stainless steel and the alloy charms bear Jane Austens initials and a Pembertea exclusive image of Jane's face at the centerpiece. Each month to come will include 2-3 additional charms related to that months theme.  Please avoid getting the bracelet wet as each piece is handcrafted and not waterproof. Our Valentines February box will contain charms profiling our theme of the month: the enduring, faithful love of "Persuasion!"

 

* * * * *

We would like to personally thank all those that have sent us messages - both complementary and critical - over the past months.  We have taken time to read and absorb all of them and every single one of them will make us better. In future boxes, we may have 3-5 items of handcrafted quality and Pembertea exclusivity. We will still add fun items like buttons and stickers every couple months. And personal bath items are coming, but we will be making the scents subtle.

For February, we are having a "Pembertube!" Our first tube that will contain Austen posters and art you will be proud to hang on your wall as well as celebrating the 200th anniversary of "Persuasion."

The first 6 months have been an incredible journey and we are SO happy to have all of you along for the ride!  We sincerely hope you and yours have a wonderful 2018!
