Oh I guess some of you have seen these easter decorations before but this cabinet in the photo below is new in our kitchen. Its a lavoar/potty cabinet. There is a lid on top were you can put a washing bowl and a cabinet for your water or potty. I will paint it on the inside before I put something in it I can assure you. I got it from free from a friend that bought an old farm. The cabinet was so filthy (found in one of the separate buildings) with some brown red splatter over it, EWW!! Common scrubbing didn't work but Svinto (soaped steelwool).
As my beloved is allergic to anything that sprouts has fur or feathers these twigs will do fine as easter sticks. The twigs were once used for spanking each other as a reminder of Jesus sufferings, weird tradition...But during the 17 hundreds the twigs were decorated, better tradition. These eggs are painted by me and Oskar long ago.
A little close up of the shabby shit cabinet and easter eggs.
So were do the Gothic comes in... Well here! Our black livingroom will have the gloomier decorations. Mossy twigs, gothic crosses and victorian styled eggs.
These decorations are made by me years ago. I store the eggs securely in boxes during rest of the year.
The decorations has an old Catolic style because I like that aestetic.
A mix of real and paper eggs under a glass dome with a two different crosses. Barely visible a crucifix at the tray and a vikin cross on the table.
I made this decoration long ago with scraps. The backround are a scrap piece from the wall paper in my former house. The little text means pastime.
Happy Gothic Easter!!
