Let’s get to these gorgeous handmade items!!
Wood & Bone Box, India – Listed Value $25
The first item of this month’s matching set is a beautifully handcrafted box made from wood and bone (only of animals that have died naturally). I love keepsake boxes like this and have them all over my house, but none as lovely as this. The bottom of the box is wood, while the lid is what has been adorned with a blue grey and white bone pattern that almost looks like marble. I’ll be using this on my nightstand to store lip balm, ear plugs, and other night time essentials.
Wood & Bone Coasters – Set of Four, India – Listed Value $35
Another bone, patterned item that matches the box is this coaster set. I’m sure you’ve heard me ramble about my vintage coffee table that is always being threatened with hot or cold, wet drinks. These are waaaay nicer than the ones I own and will add a fun pop of pattern and color to the neutral oasis that is my living room. They also have little feet on the bottom to not scratch anything. They measure 4 inches square, so they’re big enough for even a hot bowl of soup.
Hexagonal Wooden Tray, India – Listed Value $15
I love this tray! It’s so simple and useful. as much as I love keepsake boxes, I love trays even more. Again, my need to contain takes over and I need dishes and trays to hold change, jewelry, keys, etcetera. This is going to go right onto my marble side table next to my couch, which doubles as my “landing pad” next to my front door. It’s really well made and has a polished finish to it’s 6″ wide frame. This part of the set has no bone on it but still fits perfectly with the rest of the set.
Tea Light Holder, India – Listed Value $15
The last item of this undeniably chic set is a tea light holder. Also made from wood and bone, this carries the pattern of the rest and is a perfect addition. It’ s 2 inches tall and the diameter of the inside is 1.5 inches, so it should fit a standard tea light (or the safer electronic version, pictured above). It also so happens to look super great on the hexagonal tray. Fancy that! This will find a spot on my mantel, above my sadly non-working fireplace.
Verdict: For my second GlobeIn Artisan Box I received a magnificent set of handmade, ethically sourced decor that retails for $90, for a price of $55.00. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite boxes, due to the craftsmanship and story behind each treasure. I love that this month was a set instead of different items, but I like that they mix it up. I’m really excited to put all of these lovely items into my home and hear the compliments roll in.
