I love books and am also addicted to bookish goodies. When I have a beautiful bookmark in my hand, I melt. A mug inspired by my favourite books? Love it. Tote bags? Give them all to me! Thanks to Fairyloot, I found out about Ink & Wonder. It’s an Australian online store which sells beautiful wooden bookmarks, among other items. From time to time, they release the Wonder Crate. It’s a box filled with stuff inspired by books but also by popular films or series. Needless to say, I had to get my hands on one. It took a long while to arrive and I had to pay extra to actually get the package, but hey, it’s here. Let’s take a look inside!
The theme of the box is Rise Up. It appealed to me in so many ways, which is why I had to get this box. When I opened the box, I found it neatly packed with a spoiler card on top. The card is obviously in theme as well. It features lyrics from the song Rise Up by Andra Day. I am listening to the song as I am typing this.
Lyanna Mormont Keychain
The first item in the box is this keychain inspired by Lyanna Mormont from Game Of Thrones. I have to be honest, I didn’t recognise her right away. But obviously she is a queen so it makes sense. I like that they chose to have her ride a bear. I truly hope Lyanna ends up on the Iron Throne. Jon Snow who?
Cleopatra Enamel Pin
Cleopatra is the OG bad ass. She was a boss and no man could tell her what to do. While her end was tragic, she is still a source of inspiration for many films and books and art. I don’t wear enamel pins so I will have to see what to do with this one. I do love it. It’s very detailed and gorgeous.
Ink & Wonder is mostly known for their beautiful wooden bookmarks. This wonder crate includes four bookmarks. All of them have an inspiring quote which centers around the theme. I love the Jane Austen one and the one with the horse. Which one is your favourite?
I don’t watch Riverdale so I have no idea which character this is. I do like the quote, although I doubt I will be using this sticker. It’s cute, though.
Molly Weasley Magnet
Molly Weasley is a force to be reckoned with. Not only is she the ultimate mother figure, she also showed that nobody touches her kids. This quote is quite possibly my favourite line of hers and I’m sure it will look fantastic on my fridge. Yes, mama!
Leigh Bardugo Sew-on patch
I’ve only read one book by Leigh Bardugo (Don’t worry, Six of Crows is on my TBR-list). However, I love this quote. Indeed, no princess if made to please a prince. No woman is made to merely please a man. I think the design is amazing as well. So colourful and awesome. Does anybody know which book this belongs to?
Frida Kahlo clutch
Frida Kahlo was an artist and an activist. While she was known as Diego Rivera’s wife for a long time, she later made a name for herself with her beautiful artworks. Kahlo is considered an icon nowadays and rightly so. Despite many hardships in her life, she kept fighting. She stayed true to herself. I love this clutch and will definitely use it to store my art supplies. Perhaps it will inspire me to draw even more.
The last item in the box is a print with a quote from Sarah J. Maas. I think it’s from the Throne of Glass series. I’m reading the third book of that series as we speak, so I haven’t encountered it yet. Still, it’s a powerful quote and it will definitely go up on my wall.
