Maybe you just have to live for the small things, like being called pretty or someone picking up the pen you dropped or laughing so hard that your stomach hurts. Maybe that’s all that really matters at the end of the day.
✨Place all of your unique, and seemingly insignificant witch tips here. ✨
~All are welcome~
If you live in a small town and have nowhere to get crystals, check a canal, your gravel driveway, or even the desert, you will find small pieces and have fun in the process. (This can be done for finding feathers as well.)
Old bottles of seasonings are great for storing anything witchy that can be/is small.
Place black feathers near your door for protection.
Tape can be used to bind, seal or complete anything.
Old candle wax from used candles can be saved and used to make more candles.
The world is a sign. It isn’t limited to divination or being in the right state of mind, trust.
Tiny notebooks=sigils or other symbols you can make on hand.
The color of your food can help with the chakra or other correspondences that resemble that color. (Same for the color you dye your hair or wear on your body.)

I wanted to make an entire bedroom scene, but given how I take photos… decided to split it into several different scenes so as to not overwhelm the viewer :)
This scene is focused on a mini clothes rack where you’d hang your clothes and put any used pieces in the laundry basket. Admittedly, the laundry bag turned out a little more festive than anticipated, but I wouldn’t mind owning one irl if I came across something similar.
Everything is handmade (including Grumpy Mcgrumpface) and the framed print is actually up for sale in my etsy. It’s a copy of an original gouache painting I did featuring some Canadiana, and a larger version for real-sized walls should be available fairly shortly as well.
I’m beginning to recognise that real happiness isn’t something large and looming on the horizon ahead but something small, numerous and already here. The smile of someone you love. A decent breakfast. The warm sunset. Your little everyday joys all lined up in a row.
You’ve got to live for the small things, you know? Like the smile on someone’s face, the feel of morning sunshine on your back, or catching sight of the stars on a clear night. If you can do that, try to find at least a moment of beauty in each day, I promise your life will never feel empty.
I want the small things.. The little laughs, the blushes when you compliment her, the hugs, the soft kisses on your cheek or hers, forehead kisses, hand holding, inner jokes, coffee in the mornings, comfortable cuddles, the late night crying and comforting, supporting each other, late night calls, the discussions, the fights, jealousy, movie marathons, watching the sunset, making weird faces just for her to laugh.. I want all of those things because, as small as they seem, that’s what love is.
