Witchy Vintage Style Homewares Haul

I recently fell head over heels back in love with all things Victorian, Pre-Raphaelite, Arts and Crafts movement and Gothic Revival, as you will have seen if you read this post. It helped me realise that my ideal life would be to live in a Gothic Revival house in the woods that looks out over the sea, and to spend my time making beautiful things, collecting interesting objects, looking after an extensive plant collection, spending time in nature, looking like a Pre-Raphaelite muse, and generally being a little bit witchy and bohemian. Although this isn't entirely possible for me right now, I wanted to incorporate some of the aesthetic aspects of this into my current home, to help keep the dream alive. Having things which fit my visual preferences in my surroundings really help to inspire me and keep me on track, so it's something that is pretty important to me! It turned out that I already had a lot of things which would fit perfectly into this dream life aesthetic, and I'll be blogging about those soon,  but I wanted to share a few of the new pieces I picked up for my surroundings. Most of the items are thrifted, and there are a couple of new pieces as well.

Enchanted Parade

To be entirely honest there are few things about the festive season that I really enjoy. The consumerism, stress, expectation and music are not really my cup of tea. But I've been trying to focus on the things that I do enjoy, make my own traditions, and prioritise those.  One of these traditions is to attend a lantern parade each December.
