About Me

On this page you'll find information about the owner of Dark Dwelling.


Marie, the owner of Dark Dwelling

My name is Marie and I live in the UK with my husband and two young daughters. I like to wear the colour black. I like spiderweb patterns, bats, candelabras and horror films starring Vincent Price. I like some Gothic Rock, related music genres and spooky videogames.

Dark Dwelling is a blog where I write about things that are 'dark': places I've visited, items I've bought, books I've read etc. My taste for spooky things permeates all aspects of my life, so expect articles about normal, day-to-day living, but with a gothic vibe.

One of my hobbies is jewellery making. I've been constructing my own necklace and earring sets for over a decade, and I considered trying to sell some pieces years ago. I've finally got around to it, and you can see my selection of Halloween Jewellery & Gothic Jewellery for sale on this website (sold via Etsy and Ebay for the time being).

I am rediscovering elements of myself that have become a bit buried in recent years, so many of the things I stumble upon and write about will be old news. Or maybe timeless. I'll look for recent music by bands I used to listen to, revamp my wardrobe (and eventually my home decor), visit creepily beautiful places and enjoy my darkly-inclined life. I don't get out much, and I can't promise to be interesting to anyone else, but you're very welcome to join me.
