I choosed not to subscribe but to buy one of the older boxes. One reason is that I buy one that I like ( you can find box openings on youtube) and that I don't have enough money to spend every month (have a family to run for godness sake!).
Soo..the box I chosed was the January, Bat in a box one. I really liked it and it is well worth it's money.
First and foremost I got this lovely and sturdy bag with batprint. The quality is very good and I finally have a good looking bag to carry my chromebook and books in for work; here comes the Gothic teacher!
Another nice thing I used right away was this lovely moon pendant.
I can't resist neatly package, like purple tissuepaper, black grossgrain ribbon, striped paper bags and cute saché bags for jewelery. I reuse them for crafting.
Top photo shows a spooky box club sticker, wall stickers with bats (oohhh, love it), a bat badge and an awesome bat broch (click the photo for better view).
The package also contained a banner with cool text, graveyard and bat stickers that fits perfectly for the nails ( amazing!) and a lollipop.
I can highly recommend Spooky box club.
I went for a garden trip with a dear friend of mine last week. We went to Hildasholm in Leksand wich is an hour away. The house and garden belonged to the private doctor of queen Victoria (same period as brittish king Edward) or rather his wife. The house and garden is a mix of neo renaissance, England and Italian gardens.
We bought a house tour were the guide talked about the wealthy life of that times celebrities; wich was quite boring because the seemed to have too much time to spend on leisure.
The garden on the other hand is very interesting because it's smacked with topiary for northern climate. Very inspirational. I would love to try to cut a fir tree like the ones in the photo above.
The garden has many "rooms" and paths and hidden corners.
It has also lots of statues. Don't blink!!
I found a drain pipe formed as a dragon with bat ears, that was so neat.
The garden stretches out in a djungle like canyon, were fallen trees were cut to sculptures.So Swedish readers are recommended to visit the garden, but maybe not the house. They sell baskets with lovely fika (coffe and buiscits) that you can bring and sit werever you want eat.
