Treasures From The Sea


I have really felt drawn to the sea recently, and have also felt the need to surround myself with things related to the sea and water.

Clevedon



Clevedon is a charming little estuary town in Somerset, with the slightly faded beauty that a lot of Victorian era seaside resorts now have.

Crystal Haul


Crystals have increasingly appealed to me over the last couple of years, and I always seem to have at least a few crystals on my mental wishlist. So when I got a bit of unexpected money I went a bit ham on the crystal shopping, and here is the resulting crystal haul.

First is a type of crystal I have wanted to own for literally years, an opal/angel aura quartz. I fell in love with these after seeing pictures of them online and initially thinking they were photoshopped. When I realised they were a real thing,I knew I had to have one! They look so fantasy-like and remind me of the soul gems in Skyrim. They are quartz crystals which are treated with metal to create the pastel rainbow shine. Although I had some aura quartz geodes, I really wanted this cluster for the full fantasy effect. This one is quite milky which makes the colours stand out even more! I got this at a bargain price as it was secondhand.

Victorian Antique Lantern Lights Repaint


Recently I've been trying to re-organise and decorate my home to make it fit my current inspirations. I've been aiming for a sort of fantasy Victorian inspired, witchy look, and I've tried to use as many things I already had as possible.
