About 2-3 weeks before I received my box, I got this envelope in the mail.
This wildflower-seed-embedded key was included along with a mysterious note. Wonderful Objects sends this type of teaser prior to its packages to give the subscriber a clue as to what the theme of the next box will be.
This is the envelope that was just inside my box. Very enticing!
This card was inside the envelope. The premise of this quarter’s package is, “What if you unlocked a spellbound garden?” They do a great job of setting the tone! On the reverse side is a list of the package contents.
These pages were included, and they look like they have been ripped out of a journal! One of the items listed on the aforementioned card says, “Custom handmade ephemera.” First of all, I love the word ephemera. Second, I think these pages are part of the ephemera they were talking about. The pages include things like instructions on making a future-telling looking glass, drawings of mushrooms and trolls, and partial letters. It definitely helps to set the mood and allows for a suspension of belief.
This little card is more of the ephemera. So mysterious!
I have received coloring pages in subscription boxes before, but these are so detailed and beautiful! Plus they fit the enchanted garden theme so well.
Lady Alchima Historic Alchemy Print on 7 1/2 x 9 1/4 coldpress watercolor archival paper
This is absolutely wonderful, but I have no idea how to find something like it or to value it properly. I don’t even want to venture to guess. The reverse says that it’s an illustration from an alchemical treatise from 1622. Amazing.
This is beautiful, and it smells so incredible. This is a work of wax art! I love it! I can’t even tell you what it smells like, I’ve never smelled anything like it before. It’s obviously floral, but not too sweet, and with that velvety polish you get from really good perfumes. I put this on a shelf in the living room, and now all of us stop every time we go by that shelf to smell this thing!
Troll Fat Lotion Bar – Value $12
I love solid lotions, and this one feels fantastic! It’s not too greasy and absorbs well. It has a pretty light scent. But that name! Eeek!
Insect Stoneware Tumbler – Value $8.50
I love this! What a beautiful illustration!
Rhinoceros Beetle Flocked Keeping Box – Value $11
Wow, I really dislike creeping insects, and this box totally creeps me out. It’s beautiful, objectively, just not my tastes. I also think it would get dusty and be hard to clean, but that might be part of the mystique.
TAZO Teas – Value about $0.25 each
They’ve included one herbal, one black, and one green tea variety here. For some reason, I think hot tea really does fit this theme very well.
Mushroom Sea Salt by Beautiful Briny Sea – Value $8
This is a blend of sea salt and different types of dried mushrooms. This also fits the theme exceedingly well!
Verdict: This is an amazing subscription, and it’s very, very unique. I would also say that it’s for a very specific type of person. I read on their website that if you imagined going to a magical place, the items they send are the kinds of things you would bring back with you from your visit. I think that’s a great way to describe it. I’m actually having some trouble putting it all into words myself! They sent many beautiful things, and the value of everything I could get a value for totals about $70, but they included a lot of things I can’t put a value on. I don’t think value should come into play too much if you are considering subscribing to Wonderful Objects. I think much of the value is in the story, the curation, and the discovery of some truly unique items. It’s really so different!
