Once Upon a Bookcase – February 2016


Once Upon a Bookcase based their Anything & Everything box on the Girly Girl box this month, and I certainly cannot complain about how absolutely beautiful this month’s case is!

The Secret Garden was the book of choice this month and I have to say, it was absolutely breathtaking.  Honestly, this is probably my favorite phone case I’ve received so far from this subscription!

I guess I’ll talk about the phone case first since I can’t focus on anything else until that’s out of the way.  So hues of green, pink, black and white make up this months absolutely STUNNING Secret Garden case (available for individual purchase here).  I am absolutely in love.

On the back of the case reads the quote “She made herself stronger by fighting with the wind.”  So perfect.  What’s also nice is this particular phone case has a certain sheen to the material, almost like it’s sparkling.  I don’t know why but it makes me love it about a hundred times more.  So so pretty – ahh!

Okay, moving on, only because I have to.  The next item was the sun hat.  Yes, that big thing at the top of the photo was included in the boxes this month and caused the regular, book shaped boxes to have to take a month hiatus due to the item being too big to fit in there.  No one is complaining though because it is so cute and will look fabulous come Springtime, and the boxes will reappear next month!

Next was the wildflower seeds.  I’m going to have to find somewhere to plant these, but who knows.  Maybe I’ll hang onto them until I have my own garden.  They packaging is certainly cute enough on it’s own!

The Key…keychain was the final item and it was so detailed!  It didn’t come actually on the keychain (super easy to put on) but I suppose it could have been put on a necklace/something else if I chose to, though it is pretty big.  I love it as a keychain though and…wait for it….surprise!  It’s a bottle opener as well.  I’ll shock everyone at parties.  😉

That being said, the print this month reads:
“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.”
I absolutely love the art prints included on the backside of the description card every month and cannot wait until I have more wall space so I can display them all!

This month’s box was a ray of sunshine on quite a snowy winter day, and I am so thrilled with everything!  I cannot wait for next month already (although honestly, this phone case isn’t coming off my phone for quite a while.)
