Hands down, I could never get into scepters outside of seeing them at cons or in extravagant photo shoots. These and random large spoons.

I could easily just use this photo and it would sum up some of my wants very easily. I would love to have a room with Victorian and Edwardian style furnishings for my sewing room. I could have a really nice, sturdy, sewing table with a cute upholstered chair with cute scrollwork at the top. Curtains for the room could be lovely heavy swathes of fabric held back with a cord and tassel in a wine red maybe. I would love to have a wardrobe set in this particular room with drawers for the fabric and then unfinished could be hung in the wardrobe.
In one corner I could have a little hutch for my tea cups and pots, basically anything for a tea service, and then next to it I could have a water boiler like we have now in the kitchen. I’d also love to have a little sitting area nearby to sit by a window and be able to enjoy a spot of tea, as I do. It would be nice to have the ability to enjoy it in a way that doesn’t require me to weave around my ironing board that is sort of planted between a wall and the couch, as it is right now.
I have so many wants for my own personal space and want it to be covered with antiques, I just can’t help it.

How I really want to focus this is on the aesthetics of different historical eras because that’s what I really like about different time frames. Clothing throughout the different time periods is honestly where it’s at for me and draws my attention because it is so eye catching and lovely, different cuts and drapes are amazing to see and each decade has something really wonderful to add and I can’t get enough.
I do have a few favorites in particular, like the 1780s and then the 1890s just to name 2 that I tend to draw inspiration from, and of course the Rococo and Victorian periods certainly does it for me. I suppose not just in the fashion sense but the architecture and habits of people during those times.
Really, I know I’m being vague but there are too many snippets of history that I enjoy learning about that pointing out the fashions I like would be easiest and make for this short of a post. As for now, I’m off to bed, cheers! XOXO!
