British Spring Box Reveal!


Happy May! Oh how I love May! May and June are two of my favorite months because LILACS. They seem to be the most truly springy, whereas March and April are basically just Little Winters.

The British Spring boxes I did all arrived in their homes and now I can show and tell what was inside! The book was 'Thrush Green' by Miss Read, and friends, if you like the look of this guess what - there's a whole series! Is that cover darling or WHAT. Look at the carousel! These books detail village life in a charming Cotswolds village in England. The first book concerns the May Day holiday - will the festival be a success?? If you're at all a fan of all things British, or my new favorite show, 'Escape to the Country', and/or if you long for life in a place where the houses have thatched roofs and life is lived at a slower pace, you must check out these books!


There were so many springtimey treats in this box - one of my favorites were solid perfume pods from Latherati - I've mentioned this darling online find before - scents based on classic literature! You must check out Julie's shop. This scent is a fragrant love letter to Jane Austen called Barton Cottage. From 'Sense & Sensibility' remember? I popped them in sheer lavender favor bags and they looked like tiny fairies floating in the box.

Speaking of all things lavender, also included in the box were lavender honey spoons, and violet candies. Also lemon candies. I mixed and matched them, some people got violet, some got lemon. I like candy!


The component I was most excited about for these boxes were the Crabtree & Evelyn hand creams, which came in assorted flavors like 'Somerset Meadow', and 'English Honey & Peachblossom', to name a few. OH MY LOVE FOR C & E knows NO BOUNDS. I love everything they do. I feel I love more of their old stuff better than the new stuff, but still. I LOVE THEM.

Also included were Liberty of London notecards, floral washi tape in pretty floral bags, and wildflower seed cards that you plant and then apparently magic flowers appear, hopefully that's true! Oh and Queen Anne tea from the grand name in old school British tea purveyors, Fortnum & Mason.



So there you have it! British Spring. I'll be announcing May's box very soon, and I'm beyond excited about it. I'm so happy that spring seems to finally be here, and I swear I won't complain if we have a crazy hot summer. My husband was saying something about how nice it'll be in the fall, and I was like, SHUT YOUR FACE, because I don't want to think about fall-leading-into-winter for a VERY long time.
