HA! "Tis the Season! I'm so proud of my retro tacky blow-molds that I bought off eBay last Summer...a big Santa Claus with Blue Eyes and a South Pole sign...been so patiently waiting to get them displayed...
I have no exterior electrical sockets (we're REALLY retro!) so the solar lighting is fascinating. I bought 2 strings of white star lights which are going on each young Montgomery spruce on either side of the driveway, and while waiting for a prescription to be filled at Wegman's, I wandered into the holiday aisle and bought 8 plastic 2-D star walkway stakes.
I also bought a really tacky storm door cling plastic panel of a happy Snowman off eBay, and ended up my spending spree with a pack of large solar glow-in-the-dark snowflakes to put on the 2 windows in the front! Please understand that I am starting from scratch - I have no other outdoor decorations, so this justifies everything, of course.
So, now all I have to do is get over this horrible Bronchitis that everyone has, and get out there to put this stuff up! Oh, I forgot to tell you that I bought a pretty and yes, a bit tacky (but still tasteful) mailbox cover with red and white candy canes. I love those mailbox covers - so cheap, so pretty, and so different! They really tell people that you are honoring the season!
I have to say, that my little 1950's cinderblock cottage sets a certain look, and all of this stuff suits it! So, while some is tacky (I say fondly), it looks very nice and appropriate! Can you figure this out? Will post a picture when I can! How about YOU?
