TailMail does not come with an information card. Remember that when reading the review!
The flipside of the card has a quote.I love the quote. It is from The Ice Palace by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The link will take you to a public PDF of the story.
It was a windy day. I had a hard time taking pictures because everything was blowing away. I found a couple little flowers that survived the frost. The grain looking plant is foxtail.
Ethereal Ideal Crochet Crown: I did not know that this was a crown until I looked up the website for the review. The Silver Leaf Crochet Crown is a great match with my twig necklace from the Relish Accessory Box and the tree bracelet from the October Dottie Box. I did not know when I took the pictures that it was a crown. I thought it would be fun to do a Who Wore it Best! This is why information cards are needed in boxes!
Who wore the crown the best? I thought I was terribly clever coming up with this idea when I thought it was a necklace.I hope Ethereal Ideal understands I did not know it was a crown.
JuliesHandMadeSoap Pumpkin Apple SeaShell: I love that they included a seashell soap! It’s perfect for this subscription. The Butterfly Soap is beautiful. There’s also starfish soap, Batman Soap, Tomb Stone Soap, and much more. Guess who squealed with delight when he saw the soap?
Zelda says whatever J wants; he can have.
I could not find the necklace on the website. I did find this leaf necklace that is more to my taste. I am impressed with the detailing of the leaf necklace from the subscription box. You can see the veining of the leaf and the edges are crumpled. It reminds me of a beautiful fall leaf.
The chain is long. I wore the necklace both ways. The longer way made the leaf look like it jumped off the abyss into the unknown. The shorter way made it look like the leaf was clinging to the ledge. I am passing this to my sister who is ecstatic to receive the necklace. It will look great on her. I do not know the material used in the necklace. It is made in New Jersey, USA.
I am wearing one of my wear around the house shirts. It might not look like the leaf is falling off the edge, but it does in real life.
Verdict: If only I were ten years younger! I love the box. It’s fun and whimsical. I do feel that I am a smidgen too old for the box. I did cancel my subscription
I’m impressed by the price. For $14.99 I received one handcrafted necklace by the curator and two Etsy artisan pieces. . I do plan to order a few boxes for my sister over the winter if she likes the crown and the necklace. Who doesn’t want to feel like a beautiful mermaid or a princess at a renaissance faire?
