Here is a photo of the unboxing, if you would like to see the items in more detail, find my unboxing video below. This months theme was Get Inspired.
1.) This months ‘postcard’ is a lovely, cozy picture and if you look very closely you can see last months framed on the mantle piece.
2.) From Frostbeard Studios we have a candle. WOW this smells so good, it’s called Reading at the Cafe and I adore it. I have always wanted a bookish candle.
3.) A What I Read journal, I recently discovered reading journals and I’m so excited to have my hands on one. I will TRY to fill it out as I read in 2016. TRY.
4.) The Little Prince magnet by Sandra Vargas, I don’t have anywhere to put this at the moment but I’m sure it will come in handy when I move.
5.) A To-Do list with a reading octopus on it? So cute! I am a big writer of list so this is PERFECT for me. This was made by boygirlparty.
6.) This months books is… Da Vinci’s Tiger by L M Elliot and it comes with fun poetry magnets for the fridge!
Young, beautiful, and witty, Ginevra de’ Benci longs to take part in the artistic ferment of Renaissance Florence. But as the daughter of a wealthy family in a society dictated by men, she is trapped in an arranged marriage, expected to limit her creativity to domestic duties. Her poetry reveals her deepest feelings, and she aches to share her work, to meet painters and sculptors mentored by the famed Lorenzo de Medici, and to find love.
When the charismatic Venetian ambassador, Bernardo Bembo, arrives in Florence, he introduces Ginevra to a dazzling circle of patrons, artists, and philosophers—a world of thought and conversation she has yearned for. She is instantly attracted to the handsome newcomer, who admires her mind as well as her beauty. Yet Ginevra remains conflicted about his attentions. Choosing her as his Platonic muse, Bembo commissions a portrait by a young Leonardo da Vinci. Posing for the brilliant painter inspires an intimate connection between them—one Ginevra can only begin to understand. In a rich and enthralling world of exquisite art, elaborate feasts, and exhilarating jousts, she faces many temptations to discover her voice, artistic companionship, and a love that defies categorization. In the end, she and Leonardo are caught up in a dangerous and deadly battle between powerful families.
After thoughts: All these items are a win for me. I don’t know a lot about the book but if it’s good then this crate gets two big thumbs up! All the items are beautiful and I can see me using them all, unlike some of last months. They are cute and bookish and I can’t wait for you to get yours!
