Etsomnia™ 164: Dreck the Halls

19 Comments

“You know what this tree is missing? A legless duckface baby with disco eye shadow” said no one ever

Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

It’s time for my annual send-up of the best (and, let’s face it, the worst) that Etsy’s imaginative holiday decorations have to offer. Be prepared. This one’s a lot.

For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts!

Though billed as a holiday fireplace, it looks pretty flammable. I hope.

I don’t know what makes her a Christmas decoration, but I absolutely love her! By CeramicArtbyLucy

I am positively obsessed with these tinted, hand-painted Mason jar candleholders. By HennaArtDiaries

Wrong way Santa may seem a little weird, but that’s only because you haven’t seen him straight on

I’m sorry, but Draco Malfoy is just not pulling off the angel thing

Look at that face! By TheRockingFelter

Nothing says Christmas like slutty, peroxide-addled retirement condo lady!

I imagine most people would find these a little stark for the holidays, but I think they’re sexy! By DesignAtelierArticle

Speaking of sexy, Georgia O’Keefe would have loved this (if you catch my meaning) (and I think you do)

Nailed it!

Breathtaking! These are good enough to hang all year! By Lolashiddentreasures

Walk-of-shame fairies are a long-standing Vegas tradition. Ask anyone.

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

  3. Ummmm…I’m left rather speechless. Santa “straight on” made me scream a little…much like a few of the other designs. 😉

  4. Still smiling at your comments–Draco Malfoy as an angel, indeed! Thanks for finding these. 🙂

  5. What is with the ugly fairy/angel things? Is this the new Christmas decor trend? I love those tin lanterns. I could quite happily have a whole village of those.

  6. Oh my. I might have nightmares. I think the baby duck face with “disco eye shadow” Is my favorite slash scariest! Though the “Draco Malfoy Angel” (Who woulda thunk those three words would be in the same sentence?) Is my second favorite! Also that had me dying at how you labelled it! 🙂 ❤
