Treat yourself! …To another macabre Christmas tree

By on Dec 23rd

Christmas comes but once a year so I have to share ANOTHER dark Christmas tree from a reader — even though we already showed one gothy purple tree! Whatever. I really doubt you guys are going to complain that we have too many AWESOME VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS PHOTOS.

This is haplesschyld's version of Christmas.

The whole tree!

She's pitched an Edward Gorey-themed tree decked out in handmade Gorey-fied ornaments.

And I MUST show love to her personalized black Christmas village:

The Dark Snow Scene

I really love winter villages, but they don't really fit in my decorating style. The answer was finding old ones at thrift stores, and spraying them with silvers, pewters, and blacks. Once they were dry I painted the details in glue and glittered them.

Talk about YOU doing YOU. Beautiful chilly decor without even a whiff of tradition.
