A late Gothidays post

I didn't manage to post in time for The Curious Professor Z's week of Gothidays but I still wanted to contribute a little!




We got our tree up right on time which I was very pleased about because I was worried we just wouldn't be organised enough to do it until right before  Christmas and I wouldn't get to maximise the festivities in the house. It's our first Christmas in our own home, so apart from a few choice items that I've had for years most of our decorations are brand new, which is very exciting for me.


Our large tree all squished up in the corner of the living room, it covers the storage box so Reegan can only play with the toys that are currently not in the box until she gets new ones for Christmas. She doesn't seem to mind.

Some cool key ornaments from Ikea, they caught my eye because they look like they are made from bones.




 This clock doesn't really match anything else I have but it's a little Steampunky so I couldn't resist.



My old faithful who has been with me for years.

At the moment this is out tree topper because we haven't got any else that Rob deems Pagan enough to replace it. He wants to honor the origins of the holiday.



And finally a candle lantern also from Ikea. It gives off a lovely glow but it was a complete nightmare to assemble! Apart from some food and present shopping experience are almost prepared for the holidays now. Yay!

  1. Ikea has some really pretty things this year! I agree with Rob, we've been looking for some more Pagan-themed tree toppers. I've given up on trying to find a Sun topper, so I'm making one this week. Your tree and decorations are gorgeous! And congrats on your first tree! YAY!

    1. They do! I had to restrain myself from buying more because I'd already gotten most of it by the time I went to Ikea. I was also thinking of going tech home-made route. And thankyou!! I hope to make lots of my own memories and family traditions for Reegan to remember when she is older

  2. I love the skeleton keys and the candle lantern! Yay Ikea! Are the stars from there, too? I think I saw some when I was there!

    1. It's pretty awesome, and it's literally right next to my new house so I can go there all the time ;) the stars are from a shop called Next. I don't know if they have it outside the UK?
