medieval knighthood aesthetics – a few of my favorite things

i am often obsessed and lately it is with anything medieval . the likes of knights,CASTLES and tapestries, armors, relics and treasures make me want to bury myself in my room burn candles, put on black makeup and re-live my old high school goth days. Being that I am a grown woman and can no longer get away with such eccentricities , ( or can I?) I relieve myself by visiting my local ye-olde-English-pub-themed dive bar because its soo old world and I can munch on $2.00 happy hour quesadillas and gulp down a Manny’s pale ale while I stare at the most amazing knight a girl could ever meet while I think of ways I can redecorate my study.

Here are a few of my favorite medieval like things:
