This month the theme from Evil Supply Company for Mister Ghost’s Highly Enviable Monthly Parcel of Simple Yet Amazing Wonderments is “Monsters at the Movies”. I love this theme because before my husband and I had an adorable little goose of a child, who is now 2 years old and totally awesome, we would go to the movies weekly. No longer can we do that, so this box makes me nostalgic for those popcorn-eating, cherry slushie-guzzling, hand-holding, relaxing days at the theater. I believe we’ll get there again when she moves out of toddler-hood but I foresee the future holding Pixar and Disney movies as opposed to the gory horror that we truly love to watch.
I should also mention, out of the three boxes I have received so far, this one is my favorite! I really like the heavy use of blue and purple in the color schemes as well as the art work is on point this month! Let’s started with the Peyroux Dispatch newspaper. The newspaper always gives me a chuckle and this month I really enjoyed the section on “Popular Movie Snacks”. My favorite was Sea Monsters: From mermaids to sirens, popcorn shrimp with satisfy you sea fairing friends. Season with salt and a bit of garlic butter. Again with the mermaids this month, I love it!
The art print this month features a Monster Movie Snack Bar Menu. Included on the menu are: Phantom Soda Pop in the flavors of “moonlight” or “haunted forest gloom”, popcorn with the options of “magic, salt or plain”, Sour Goblins, Bat mints, Candy Grave Dirt and Mermaid Salt Water Taffy. The print is super cute and I can it working in a cute little frame propped up in a kitchen or hanging on a fridge.
The postcard this month reminds me of my sweet, sweet childhood in the 80’s! The days of hitting the local Blockbuster or other video rental store and cruising the isles for what movie to take home and hoping the parents would say yes to the risqué picks. I have to say I’m really digging the artwork this month and the problem I’m having is I like to hoard my boxes and not share them as I should.
The card this month is blank inside and the front states “Hey-oh! Movie Time!”. The theater is dark and it looks like the crowd is watching the previews. It would be perfect to send to someone just to catch up or a cute way to invite a friend on a movie date. I plan to send my card to my sister for a movie date next time she visits Portland, OR for a stay.
The notebook this month is purple and has 32 blank pages for you to put your lists, notes, spells, journaling or whatever else you may fancy. I’m still looking for a way to utilize me that will work for what I’m interested in. I may try to incorporate it into my oracle or tarot card daily readings as I’m not a list maker, journaling type of gal. However, the paper is of good quality and I see so many potential uses for the notebooks.
Again, I freaking LOVE the embroidered patch this month. It is a rather large square that shows movie posters that you would see walking in your theater. The one in main focus is “Ghosts in the Woods” and shows a night sky among stars and trees. Seriously hoarding these patches until I have at least five of them to get fixed to my favorite bomber jacket!
The pin this month is an actual pin again. It is a box of popcorn with a ghost and what is possibly a snake? Or a worm? Or something dripping with slime. Not exactly sure, but it’s pretty cute and will go directly on to my messenger bag, post haste!
As usual, I loved this month’s parcel and looking forward to next month’s theme which is “Moonlight in the Poison Garden”!
