I think my recent vintage Christmas finds are talking about me. They think I might have outdone myself this time.
Said one pretty Christmas head planter to the other: "Have you seen it?"
"I know," said the other one. "It's so big, so ridiculous."
The Gurley choir is buzzing too.
"Can you believe it?" sang the choir boys to the choir girls.
"It's so flashy," the girls sang back.
The spaghetti Santas can't get over it, either.
"Ho ho ho. How do you think she got that thing home?"
Even the nativity set has something to say: "It's rather gaudy, don't you think?"
Well, is it? Let's take a full view of the situation.
And there, you have it: An 1950-ish electric candle that I couldn't ignore. It's nearly 18 inches tall and adorned with gold netting, silver leaves and a big hot pink bow. It's kind of the Vegas showgirl of Christmas decor.
What is it that they say? Go big or go home. Well, I went big, and after buying this, I went home.
P.S. There's still time to enter my Town Cleanup giveaway. Leave a comment on the previous post to win everything in the final two photos, plus a few more treasures that I'll throw in. The deadline is midnight Friday.
