I received 6 items in my subscription box.

Do you ever think about what an item would say if it could or where an object may have come from? Heirlooms are things I love. I always try to imagine where it has been, who may have had it, or what stories it could tell.

My first item is a pair of socks from Out of Print ($10). They feature a silhouette of Sherlock Holmes himself. Y’all know I love silly socks, well my youngest happened to inherit the same love. He tried to steal these from me. It didn’t work. LOL! The socks are very comfortable and soft. they have reinforced heel and toes. I like the fact it actually came in my size!

Next item is a candle that can certainly wake you up! It is from Cherry Pit Crafts ($4.50 -$10). This one is called Java Jones. I did not even have to light this one to get the smell to permeate the house. It is just like a strong cup of joe! I don’t particularly like to drink coffee but I do love the smell.

Also in the box was a nice watercolor painting featuring the moon with the saying “Oh my stars” from Lexy Olivia ($6). I love this painting and I already framed it for hanging. I enjoy sitting on my porch or laying on the ground and staring at the stars and the moon. I sit there and ponder the future and the past. I also wonder if the moon and stars could speak about all they have seen, what would they say about us.

I also received a tote to carry all my new goodies in from the Bookish Shop ($12). On the front is a quote from the books in The Selection Series There was too much love in my heart to leave room for regret.” — Marlee Tames. It is a cloth bag with plenty of room, machine washable, and just plain adorable. I am now a collector of tote bags.

The optional upgrades were included in this box. There was a shirt from the Bookish Shop ($20). If you are fan of the Lord of the Rings series, you know who said the quote on the shirt. “I can’t carry it for you, but I can carry you & it as well.” – Samwise Gamgee. What a friend he was! Do you have a friend like that? One who would carry you and your burdens?

I upgraded my box to include the book! This month’s book is The Hidden Memory of Objects by Danielle Mages Amato ($11.58 Amazon).

The Hidden Memory of Objects is a highly original and beautifully written debut mystery novel with a speculative element, perfect for readers who loved Gayle Forman’s If I Stay.

Megan Brown’s brother, Tyler, is dead, but the cops are killing him all over again. They say he died of a drug overdose, potentially suicide—something Megan cannot accept. Determined to figure out what happened in the months before Tyler’s death, Megan turns to the things he left behind. After all, she understands the stories objects can tell—at fifteen, she is a gifted collage artist with a flair for creating found-object pieces. However, Megan now realizes that her artistic talent has developed into something more: she can see memories attached to some of Tyler’s belongings—and those memories reveal a brother she never knew.

Enlisting the help of an artifact detective who shares her ability and specializes in murderabilia—objects tainted by violence or the deaths of their owners—Megan finds herself drawn into a world of painful personal and national memories. Along with a trusted classmate and her brother’s charming friend, she chases down the troubling truth about Tyler across Washington, DC, while reclaiming her own stifled identity with a vengeance.

It is about a sister trying to find out what caused the death of her brother. She is an artist who uses objects to make collages and discovers that she can see the memories of the objects and uses that to solve the mystery of her brother’s death. I am looking forward to reading this one.
