Gable Lane Restful Retreat Crates Girls Bedroom Box June 2016 box

Gable Lane Crates is a monthly subscription box dedicated to make your home decor shopping easier. If your decor veers towards rustic, cottage, farmhouse, urban or vintage, you’ll definitely enjoy opening this box every month.
The subscription is a little hard to grasp – here’s how it works:

  1. Gable Lane pre-announces the box themes. There are two every month, plus special edition boxes.
  2. Sign up for one crate during the announced sale period, or a three box series. (If you can stand it, I recommend waiting for spoilers because if you buy in advance all you have is the name of the box to go on).
  3. Your box will ship during the month you bought it for.

There are two sizes of box –  $49.95 per month for the original and $89.95 for the exclusive. You’ll get a box filled with home accessories and decor to liven up the rooms of your house.

Bows and Burlap Handmade Hashtag Throw Pillow Case ($19.95) This came packed in the burlap sack (above) and was one of the spoiler items for the box. My 7.5 year old daughter showed extreme interest in hashtag items the other week at Michael’s, so this item sucked us right in! It’s cute and fun and she loves it.

Creative Co-Op 6″ Laser Cut MDF Box ($23.99):  Love the detail on this box lid and it will be perfect for collecting all the bits and bobs my daughter seems to gather. She’s like a crow, always picking up something shiny!

I do wish that the box had a ribbon or whatever to stop it from folding all the way back (a tether?).

Creative Co-Op 50 LED Lights in 200″ Copper Wire ($18.75) We were super excited about these, because they’ll match perfectly to the lanterns we just made in Doodle Crate!

Primitives by Kathy “Smile” Mug (~$15) This mug is GIANT! Like seriously really really big. If it wasn’t super girly my husband would steal it for coffee, but I think we’re safe from his evil grasp. Clearly for kids they’re going to use it to store something in? I really wished it had been a vase or something else, because I don’t think coffee mugs are the most practical thing for kids.

The design however is super cute. Children still recognize cameras too!

Not only do I have to collect actual photographs to use it, but I have to figure out where to hang it. It would be a good excuse to check out the timeshel photo printing subscription, but I’m not so sure this is staying in my house although I do love the copper color.

The value of this box was about $88, which is pretty good, but I wasn’t totally wowed by it, although I think my daughter would say best box ever. See our review of the boy’s bedroom crate here. This box could have been easily labeled kids – imaginative box and the boys’ could have been kids – adventurous box. But good to know for the future, neither box was super gendered!

    The mug could be used for pens.

      Sorry if I wasn’t clear – there are other containers not in mug form that can be used for storing writing implements. I have a house full of coffee mugs and I wish most of them didn’t have a handle.

    Funny about the pictures but I’m right there with you. While I do have lots of pictures here and my youngest would love to have this and have them all out. I can’t stand when they start to curl up like they do when out loose like that. Same goes for the frames that aren’t behind glass. They annoy me but I do like the overall box and think it would be good for a kid who is getting out of the kiddie stuff but isn’t ready for the mature bedding section.
