Do you ever see an item that is so ugly it’s cute? Or wonder if something is cute and endeering or kitschy and ugly? I know I do. I think a few personal kitschy/cute items are fine, so long as it is only a few. I’ve gathered some of the items I can’t quite decide which way I lean toward more.
These little guys could be cute in the right setting, especially becuase they are made to look like your family.
I would like to buy a plain set to make my own, but you get the idea…
This print is simply adorable, not even a hint of kitsch.
It’s similar to my Love Tree print, too.
Maybe that’s why I like it?
If only I had a place to put something like this.
Which reminds me, I still need to figure out how to make a terrarium (or two or three) for my house. Of course, with my love of all things miniature, I would need something like these and these.
I have been loving faux bois lately, so these coasters would be a great fix.
Although, so wood (ha!) these. In the right setting, of course. Maybe the boys’ room? Hmmm… Of course, I would have to make my own. You know I’m too cheap to spend $45.00 on pillows!
I actually made a pillow for my boys becuase I was inspired by this little monkey.
So, that’s that. What are your opinions? Cute or kitsch?

The pillows are adorable. I used to teach nursery school at a Nature Center so anything that reflects the great outdoors is tops on my list.
Hey girl, I found your blog through YHL. I found this post and thought it was hilarious, since I just made my own terrarium. It might be kitschy, but I don’t care. I think it’s adorable and I love having the added greenery around my house. If you love something go for it!
