This box! It’s as if team OwlCrate asked me personally what I would like to see in a box, and then curated it just for moi. I mean this theme – Lost in a Book – pretty much describes the waking majority of my life! Here’s what was inside July’s wonderful box:

A MATILDA MUG!! Ok, so we are still in the middle of a major showdown fight over this incredible mug, because look at it! It’s amazing! I was read Matilda in grade two and soon after the 90s movie was released … I watched that movie into the ground! I loved pretending I was Matilda standing on her coffee table making everything fly around her. Probably my favourite mug included yet! Artwork by on of my all time favs – Risa Rodil.

Speaking of movies I burned out … Beauty and the Beast! I mean, Belle’s library is the stuff of our bookworm dreams, so this gorgeous tasseled bookmark is an instant favourite. Designed by Kelly Leigh Miller.

My daughter was exceptionally excited to get her own secret book storage tin, the fact that it was Harry Potter is just the cherry on top. The artwork on this piece is amazing – we spent a long time just pointing out all the incredible details, with something new discover each time we look at it. I know she is going to have blast coming up with all sorts of trinkets and treasures to store inside. Artwork by the amazing Anne Lambelet, the creative genius behind OwlCrate’s famous HP umbrella from 2019.
