📮first we have a train whistle and my daughter has not stopped playing with it. 📮next we have a cute stationary set. one side you write on and the other side is where you put the address. saving you from searching for an envelope.
📮then a feather pen to write your letters with. 📮an enamel pin of an owl bring you your hogwarts letter. (at least we hope it is. 😉 )
📮some adorable mail kitty stamp stickers. which i will hoarder and never use cause they are so cute. 😻
📮a coin purse to store loose change or maybe even to help keep stamps safe.
📮and finally our book, 'the train to impossible places' by p.g.bell
included was a letter from the author and a signed nameplate. 🚀don't miss out on november's theme;

“‘look at this!’ he exclaimed, showing the box to the uninterested cat. ‘my favorite! if it was cap'n crunch or grape nuts, i might have given up all hope, but this makes me think that everything might end up okay!’ he popped a handful of froot loops into his mouth; they were stale but delicious.”

new recipe on the blog!🍽🎉
froot loop marshmallow treats + homemade lemonade inspired by the creepy modern folktale nightbooks by j. a. white!
froot loops make an appearance several times throughout the story, and lemonade is mentioned a few times too, so i thought these would make a fun pairing with the novel. they’d be really fun for a nightbooks book club.😋📚
((i received my copy of nightbooks in the august @owlcratejr box.))
Do you watch cartoons or anime?

Today we received the october @owlcratejr box, mail call. always a happy day at our house when a box arrives.
pictured is city of ghosts which was from september's box and probably the book that intrigued me the most simply because of the cover artwork. it doesn't have the bright colors and cute, comical feel most of the other books we received until this point.
out of curiosity, i think i'm going to give this one a read through to see what it's all about.
These spooky little stickers from @stickiiclub came in our september ghost & ghoulies box.
🎃did you have a favourite? what do you use your stickers for?
🎃our october theme is mail call and we think stickers make a perfect pair with a handwritten letter.
