My thoughts:

(Gallery to go up on Instagram around the same time as this post)

Huh, I cleverly took a photograph of the TOP of the Jar with the candle in instead of the actual candle or even the label, oh well.
I got really excited when I saw the Tiptree Jam jar in here. I thought that was so unique! Jam in a book box! I was a little disappointed to see it was a candle, but it is an adorably cute candle and it smells quite nice too.

So usually I leave everything in the box until I’ve had a chance to photograph it, I don’t want to loose anything you see. But I started using the colouring book right away. I have others but this was better than them for one very special reason – the images had bigger sections and the images were less complex which was exactly what I was after to try and learn pencil control with my non dominant hand. I’m trying to learn to be ambidextrous, but you have to do things so differently! It’s great fun.

These bath salts made this box smell FANTASTIC! usually I pass on bath products as I don’t like baths but I might keep this around for a bit….

This is the second tea town I’ve received in a book box! And I don’t know what to do with it…Use it is the obvious answer. Aww maybe as a cover when I leave cakes to cool! Sorted.

The title of the book makes me think of The Forgetting, just for the tree image and the memory connection, but it sounds like an interesting book! I’d say “I hope to read it soon” but I have a WHOLE ENTIRE SHELF of unread book box books. Perhaps that’s a goal for next year.

This was a dangerous box. I was on Etsy, linking in the shops and I may have bought some products from both JustFribble and the GlasgowSoapCompany. I’ll certainly be visiting them again!

I liked this box and I hope I enjoy the book when I get to it!
