Spooky Box: The Graveyard Box
Time for another Spooky Box! :D This box is inspired by “the beauty found in old cemeteries, from tombstones and skeletons to old customs of keeping a memento belonging to loved ones”.
Sounds like my type of thing, old cemeteries really can be hauntingly beautiful. Let’s see what we got…
The Graveyard Box
This time the box was stuffed with bright purple paper strips and sequins shaped like black bats and pink hearts. It was pretty, and you know I love bats, but it didn’t look very graveyard-ish? The dark teal card on the other hand looked appropriate.
Rather than choosing a new charity each moth they have decided to have just one organization for this whole year. Which is both good and bad imo. I like the idea of spreading the money around and give a little here and there, but on the other hand a larger donation might be more useful.
Anyway, the charity for this year is Cancer Research UK. :)
Trio of mini stitched notepads
These are cute, and the gods know one can never have too many notebooks. :P Too bad the paper is checkered, I would have preferred lined, or even better: blank.
Graveyard memo board pins
Also cute, just need a memo board to stick them on.
Spooky skull nail art kit
Nail foil? This will be interesting! I love nail polish and nail decoration in general, but I’ve never actually tried nail foil before. Will definitely try it! :D
Skelly hands hair clips
They look funny, but also really cheap. Like toys glued on the metal bit. These will be saved for a Halloween costume party or something.
Our darling keepsake pin
Gorgeous little pin! It feels well made too. Maybe I should put it on one of Zaphod’s coats? I mean, if anyone is “our darling” it’s him. :)
Tombstone zip purse
When travelling I always pack my stuff in a million different mini bags, so just as with notebooks: one can never have too many of these. And unlike most of my other zip purses this one is actually my style. I like it a lot. :)
Gravestone dry erase board and pen
I wish it had fasteners or something on the back so I could put it on a wall. And it’s not magnetic so I can’t put it on the fridge either. Nice idea, but I’ll probably forget about it and never use it.
Handcrafted grourmet lollipop
Yaas! :D I’ve gotten one in every box so far, so I have a little lollipop collection now. I know I have to eat them eventually, but I just think they’re so pretty! The flavour of this one is “birthday cake”.
This was overall a nicely put together box. The only items I didn’t enjoy were the hair clips and the memo pad as I see no practical use for them. I really liked the notebooks, the zip purse, and the “our darling” pin. The nail foil too.
I’m still enjoying the boxes so I think I’ll keep my subscription for a little while longer. :)
