not another bill




so here it is, my third and last (sob!) not another bill present.
this month, they have teamed up with iris hantverk, a swedish company who hand craft all of their pieces. every piece is so well designed and i absolutely love the aesthetic of the company. they also work closely with visually impaired people which makes the feel and look of their work even more special. the designs are seriously clever and simple- which i know i've said before is a brilliant combination.

i have to admit, when i opened it i thought "what am i going to do with this?" seeing as it's quite small and far too beautiful to get covered in dirt and crumbs. however, when i realised that it is the perfect size to use as a laptop/table dustpan and brush, i was so happy (i can't be the only one who eats cake next to their laptop?!).

although i'm chuffed to bits with this month's present, i am gutted that it's my last one. i've had 3 amazing and unique presents, and found out about three companies that i probably wouldn't have known about otherwise. as much as i'd love to keep subscribing, i just cannot afford it at the moment, but maybe in a year or two i'll be in a position to subscribe again.

if you can afford it, i would recommend not another bill 100%. i think they're hugely interesting and are tapping into a great niche in the market for creatives. having the subscription given to me as a present from j was also great- i'd definitely consider doing that for a friend. the excitement of seeing that little parcel each month never failed to make me smile, and the range of presents is so worth it.

  3. I'm so tempted to subscribe but I really don't have the money. It's just the loveliest idea! And oh, how appropriate for me to be reading this chomping on a cherry bakewell over my laptop.
