After last months brilliant box from Deb and the team at Boxcitement I was looking forward to what June had in store. Once again the team did not disappoint, with a box that conjures up summer holiday childhood memories and gives hope that one day we’ll all get to have lovely summer holidays again!
What was in the box?
- Handy 70s inspired phone holder/stand
- A pair of handcrafted teardrop earrings
- Pebble paperweight inspired by American diners
- A nostalgic wall print
- Liberty style fabric magnet
- Set of retro mini note cards and envelopes
- A yummy lollipop to remind us of childhood trips to the seaside.
I am a sucker for jewellery and especially blue toned pieces in the summer. I’m not sure why, I think it all stems from my first girls holiday in Turkey and I bought some beautiful turquoise jewellery! These earrings are beautiful shades of blue and are really subtle. I’ll definitely get a lot of use out of these. I also loved the little red pouch they came in too.
This fabric magnet is really unusual. I’m a big fan of Liberty-style prints so I love the floral pattern (and I wear a lot of navy too). I can’t wait to wear it and see how well the magnet works. Its a great way to wear a brooch without making holes in delicate tops/dresses.
This lolly made me smile, although given that the box arrived on the hottest day of the year I am not sure when I’ll be ready to eat it. It feels a bit too hot for such sugary indulgence right now.
I love these little note cards, the retro prints on them are really fun and quirky. Let’s be honest, now is the best time to put pen to paper, and I’ve definitely sent more letters since March than I have in years.
This paperweight will come in handy this week as I’m working with ALL the windows open! I love the Vegas style imagery and it’s also really tactile. The message will help remind me to get stuff done.
I really like the quirky 70s pattern on this mobile phone stand. At first I wasn’t sure how exactly to use it but after a little bit of research I figured it out. It would have been handy to have had a few tips or maybe a drawing of how to use it just to help out idiots like me!
Last but not least, is this penny farthing art print. I am not a huge fan of the illustration itself but I do love the sentiment behind it and it feels very apt for where we are in the world right now.
