Soap

On my recent trip to Nova Scotia, I found a  myriad of things to photograph in Sherbrooke Village.   The villagers still make their own soap and candles.

So pretty. Love the vintage feel of your image, and I love hearing that traditional methods are still surviving.

An absolutely beautiful still life with monotone colors! Even better, the handmade soap...I always pick up a bar when I find one on an outing. I even found a handmade nubby washcloth that I love.
