I thought I would include some items from my room this week as I promised to put a picture up of my kitschy animal family.
Around the place I have an old Polly Pocket (which I used to absolutely adore when I was a kid), a NRFB Little Pullip, my ceramic animals and my box of bows that I made.

Old things

I have been having a serious vintage fest lately. I’ve officially started my kitschy ceramic animal collection. Now in the collection is a cat, a pig, a deer, a squirrel and recently bought off Etsy, an adorable lamb! I can’t wait to get him. He’s coming all the way from England.

When the family is together I will take some piccies.

I have found my vintage and retro love really blossoming, I’ve been incorporating vintage bits and bobs into my aprons and purchasing more older fabrics with retro flair.

I think I have realized that there are already so many amazing things in the world and they are so much more interesting than the things your find new in shops. Vintage things hold stories and time and they are such a pleasure to find at an op-shop or market.

When I have my own house one day I want it to be filled with all kinds of old, weird and wonderful things.

I have decided to feature vintage jewelry today as I have found the most wonderful shop on Etsy called Aged and Opulent Jewelry which has a huge collection of incredible finds.
Oh, the sparkles, the glitter, the gold! Vintage jewelry really got it right.

This is such a delight with it’s green and golds.

This is so beautiful and decadent.

I adore the colors in this piece. So enchanting.

Now this one has a real fucky retro thing going on. Love it and the hot pink is wonderful.

This one really catches my eye. Fun and even a little bit kitschy.

This is stunning. The emerald and aquamarine colors go beautifully together.

This has got to be my favorite color combination. Deep pink and gold.

Your ears would truly be delighted to have these lovelies on them!

Now I’m not sure if this reminds me of showgirl feathers or a turban but it’s definetly fun and amazing.

And to top it all of check out this impressive matching collection.

A little thing called kitsch

Kitsch is an art that is considered an inferior, tasteless copy of an extant style of art or a worthless imitation of art of recognized value. But so what? Many people adore kitsch, like myself. I have even started my own collection. Going to op shops and findingĀ  kitschy little animal figurines for a dollar. What could be more rewarding?

Instead of taking photos of my own collection, I have decided to feature what other people on Etsy are selling in the world of kitsch.

my favorite kitsch items are animals so I just had to include this gorgeous little pink elephant from littlevintageviolet

This is too cute. A vintage soup mug from HeyYoYo

This little bear from amye123 is very similar to the animals i collect.

A poodle in a slipper, what could be better? From TheLovelys
