The worse the economy gets, the more catalogues and advertisements I seem to receive – both in my mailbox and email inbox. For the most part, I get annoyed with the excessive waste of my time. This past week, however, a pretty little gem of a catalogue I’d never heard of before appeared in my mailbox, addressed to my name. I nearly tossed it in frustration, but quickly flipped through and caught a glimpse of some drool-worthy home and bath products that I knew I had to share.
I’m not even sure how big the company is, but the catalogue (and website) is called Cambria Cove. They sell a tempting assortment of embossed, leather bound journals, fine soaps, gourmet food and stationary. One of my favorite items in their catalogue were these beautifully wrapped Claus Porto soap sets. Apparently Claus Porto is a 122 year old Portuguese soap company that makes 100% natural soaps with French fragrances. These would make a delightfuly unique bridal shower or housewarming gift, as well as an anytime gift for those who love bath soaps and other sweet smelling, beautiful goodies. Although, if I received these, I have to admit I could never bring myself to mar their loveliness with use. 🙂
