A Kitschy Christmas is merry and bright.
I really don't have time for this ... time to shop and browse all the unique items - especially the kitschy Christmas items - at Ruby Lane. I just can't seem to help myself. Maybe it's because I grew up in the 1970s, when my Mom was still using all the fun household and decorative items from the 1960s ...
Anyway, this morning's distraction all started with a newsletter from Ruby Lane: Ring in the New Year With Ruby Lane. I don't know who curates the items to show in their e-newsletters, but whoever it is is doing a wonderful job! It brought me in and I spent the next hour browsing.
What hooked me was a picture of adorable tumblers with pointy-hat Santas - the epitome of kitschy Christmas decor. I had to click through to see if they were from Holt-Howard. Years ago, Walter Dworkin wrote about Holt-Howard for us. Of course, after learning about it I had to pick up a few pieces of my own because the Mid-Mod designs are just so darn charming.
After confirming the Holt-Howard origin of the tumblers, my eyes wandered to the fun and funky Christmas jewelry. Bright enamels. Subtle silver. Fun designs. Fine jewelry and costume jewelry. I could spend the whole day browsing and never come across the same item twice.
Enjoy this brief glimpse of some of the eye-catching and FUN brooches:
And what's more, is each of these kitschy Christmas pins is on sale right now for less than $50.
If you have the time ...
... and the willpower to not overdo, check out Ruby Lane's vintage Christmas offerings. But I warn you: The day may disappear before you know it.
