Oi! Look! It’s the first OwlCrate of 2017!
The January theme was CLASSIC REMIX and it was PACKED with awesome goodies.
First up, there’s a gorgeous watercolour bookmark from LexyOlivia, with a quote from Slaughterhouse-Five.
And yes, the quote finishes off on the reverse side! I’m absolutely in awe of this design. the colours, the script… everything is so, so fantastic.
This magnet inspired by The Phantom of the Opera magnet is hand-illustrated by Sweet Sequels. I can’t even explain why I’m so drawn to this illustration. It’s incredibly inviting and appealing to me.
I’m sick at the moment so I can’t actually smell this soap from TeaSoapBooks but I can definitely admire it the packaging, because it’s a LIBRARY CARD and the soap itself is shaped to look like an open book! They have a great range of book soaps and bath salts inspired by literary classics available on their website.
This is just one page from the 2017 calendar from Obvious State. It’s filled with designs inspired by classic children’s books. Now I just need to work out whether to keep it at home or take it to work and display it on my desk!
Now, this is my favourite tea from any OwlCrate box ever. I’m a massive fan of mint tea and this blend from First Edition Tea Co. is DELICIOUS. Excuse me while I put the kettle on for another cup.
The book of the month was RoseBlood by A.G. Howard, which came complete with an author letter and signed bookplate. It’s a modern retelling of The Phantom of the Opera, and I’ve seen rave reviews absolutely everywhere.
I’m finding it really difficult to stop staring.
And you know what’s even more awesome? The text inside is red. RED, I TELL YOU. How cool is that?!
I absolutely love OwlCrate and would definitely recommend signing up. The February theme is RUN AWAY WITH THE CIRCUS and all the sneak peeks so far have got me super-excited. April, my brother’s girlfriend, is an actual circus performer so I kidnapped her for some themed photos.
