I'm participating in the Blogging from A-Z Challenge again this year. Today's post is brought to you by the letter K.
As a child of the ultra-kitschy 80's, it's no surprise I would love and be inspired by anything tacky. While my tendency is not to collect tons of possessions myself (my husband & kids do enough
hoarding collecting for all of us, thank you very much!), I find myself drawn to all things kitschy, ugly, and just plain odd. Signs that say wildly inappropriate things are a personal favorite, and that tends to spill over into my cross stitch pattern choices, as well. I've never had an eye for more "grown up" design. Landfill fodder is more my style.
Recently one of my oldest and dearest friends was visiting from out-of-town and made a comment about trying to find me some kitschy little gift to bring with her when she visited. I had to giggle when she said that b/c a) I had already picked today's letter topic and b) I love that when my friends think of me, they think of the off-the-wall, tasteless side of life...in the nicest way, of course!
