A Not-So-Christmassy Paperchase Haul





There is no denying that Paperchase have some of the best Christmas decorations going. Every year they come out with more and more amazing, adorable and unique decorations, and it's just so easy to get carried away in the fun of it all.

Last Friday, before my friend and I went to see Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them (which is amazing by the way!), we decided to have a wee snoop to see what goodies they had. £40 later I walked out with some not so Christmassy Christmas decorations.

My reasoning for spending a stupid amount of money is that a most of the things I bought can be used all year round. Decorations are for life. Not just for Christmas.

So let's start with the last thing I spotted on my way out the door. These adorable cookie cutter lights!



So cute! They are battery operated too, so no need to find a mains socket to plug it in. BONUS! There's 10 lights in 3 shapes: a gingerbread man, a star and a tree. To be honest, I will probably want to have these out all year round, I am obsessed with them!

Next in my shopping bag were these cute mini felt cacti. Of course, I hear you cry, when I think of Christmas I automatically think of plants that grow in predominantly dry environments! Weird I know, but oh god I couldn't help myself. Although there are little plastic loops attached to each cactus I probably won't be hanging them from my tree. Expect to see them in more blog posts no doubt! 


I also came across these sparkly little dudes. Great for adding a bit of glittery cosiness to a room. Again, i'm not sure what I am going to do with them but I am sure they will find their place at some point. I love glitter so much that I just had to buy them!


They come in a pack of 9 and in three different colours: a teal-green, grey and black. A great alternative to the normal red and green we see everywhere this time of year. Also, who doesn't love a bit of glitter? Did I say that I loved glitter??

I am currently doing a bit of home reconstruction and redecoration. By that I mean I am in the middle of a crafty project where I decorate a paper maché model house. Every time I see something that may be useful I buy it straight away. When I came across these teeny tiny table confetti I knew they would be perfect! Shaped as Christmas trees and gingerbread men, I can't wait to use them. I will, of course, be writing a post once the finished house is done. Need to get cracking with it!


The final decorations I purchased would be more suitable for Halloween, or Día de los Muertos to be entirely accurate. I have always loved the brightly coloured Mexican Sugar Skulls, particularly as they remind me of my time in Texas in 2011. So I had to pick up the beautiful wooden skull Christmas decorations. Such great quality as usual from Paperchase, so I am looking forward to loving these for a very long time.


Are you more of a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas decorations? Or do you like to go a bit wild? I can't wait to start properly decorating, but as It's not December just yet I can only plan and plot as to what I want to do! 2 days to go.....
