the kitschy menagerie

Just a few little finds this week. I have a weekness for these kitsch little creatures, and at just 10p each there was no way I could leave them behind. The deer I found a couple of years ago remain my favourite, but these are welcome additions to my collection. The cats are salt and pepper shakers, and came complete with a lot of old pepper. The deer is in fantastic condition. And the mouse, well, he just looks a bit annoyed at the world.


And a pretty oil painting. These normally come in ugly, ugly frames, which I remove staight away. But this frame isn't too bad, so might escape being attacked with pliers.

What did you find this week?

I love the Mouse! I'm always trying to find new kitsch to build up my small collection. After giggling around a thrift shop for an hour, my Fiancee` and I decided to start collecting Bizarro Kitsch. You can check some of it out here:
