Countdown to Kitschmas, Day 1

This is Year Three for Countdown to Kitschmas.  There is so much KITSCH to Christmas - it just has to be shared!  An Ugly Christmas Sweater will be modeled.  I will highlight kitsch from the thrift shops, Etsy and shopgoodwill.com.  I will post "What I'm Listening To" from my thrift shop rescued CDs.

Day 1 is Sandi Patty and Peabo Bryson in It's Christmas.


Cute cookie jar deserved a posting but at $50 in the thrift shop, he had to find another home.  


While clicking around on Etsy, I found this gem, eggnog-loofah-soap.


Fellow blogger Cindy at Retro Revival is creating her own kitsch with her Santa wreaths and repurposed planters.  Her shower caps are tres adorbs too!

I will also be highlighting scans from the 1966 Better Homes and Garden Treasury of Christmas Ideas.  I scored that book for 75 cents at a thrift shop last month.  Nothing embodies kitsch like the late 1960s.

Last but not least, images from the 1951-1952 Montgomery Ward Fall and Winter catalog.



Linking with Ms. Misantropia for her ~ How Do You Celebrate? blog challenge.  

  

Please join me in this nearly month-long celebration of All Things Kitschmas!
