CHRISTMAS PAST

12days_recap2
I got a crazy idea this past Christmas to email a different image of ‘something’ for 12 days to everyone on my mailing list. My initial plan was to don hideous Christmas sweaters, but after doing the math, the sticker shock had me putting them back on the rack. Besides, Ugly Christmas Sweater parties are a better venue. So, I wandered around the thrift store until it hit me — 12 DAYS OF TASTELESS CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS! Here is a full recap:

DAY ONE
Painted Pasta Tree with Chinette and Parkay tub base

DAY TWO
Big Bottomed Bell Ringer

DAY THREE
Platinum Blonde Angel with Blue Eyeshadow (picture the look on the Thrift Store employee’s face when I plopped this pretty thing down on the counter!)

DAY FOUR
Scum-filled snow globe (half empty)

DAY FIVE
Maimed cardboard reindeer cutout

DAY SIX
Inebriated ceramic Santa head with light-up nose

DAY SEVEN
Two blind caroling candles

DAY EIGHT
Vintage Greeting Card—This is printed proof that if he sees you when you’re sleeping (and he likes what he sees) he’s sure to call you when you’re awake. Better watch out!

DAY NINE
Horrified Girl with Wreath

DAY TEN
Metrosexual Santa with black platform boots and matching bag

DAY ELEVEN
One-eyed partridge pot holder—minus pear tree

DAY TWELVE
A snowman head shoved onto a green, wooden pickup stick
with matching wood base. Its tinsel-accented “body” resembles
a pre-fertilized ovum (don’t believe me, look it up). A festive
poinsettia collar pulls it all together!
