Could he be a leprechaun? They're many times depicted as old men, and sometimes with red coats!
I know there are still oil paintings, but I'll have to call her to ask about the pheasant piece. Some of that stuff has been such a fixture in the house since I was a kid that I don't notice it.
She might think it's fun to take some pictures and mail them to me, but forget about anything digital with that one, she's not going there! Otherwise I'll be over there within 60 days or so to see her and will make it a point of being more conscious of her kitsch with the digital camera!
I just can't help it Denny, everytime I look at the birds I think of Austrian (or maybe Dutch) tourists on holiday. I have two little robins that my Mom had as a young lady. I really don't know if they're kitsch or crap.
Allee that is great. Reminds me of a joke when I was a kid that I can't quite remember, but in the 60's, people were always saying "death to..(whatever they didn't like)"
Somewhere in the 60's a crowd gathers yelling:
"Death to repro!"
heard under someone's breath: "who's Repro?"
I think "Death to Repro" would make a great title for a book.
In some communities they get passed from yard to yard among friends as a joke. I never put that many out that's something. It can be particularly good when planted outside during black tie events so the patrons can feast in their glory as they depart.
Maybe it's not a dress at all, but a hat.
Do you think New Bedford might have a splinter group from the red hat society that mocks them by wearing hats to lunch that look like red doll dresses?
Just a thought.
It sure does make a guy wonder why they would put his feet in cement though.
I think it's St. Francis of Assisi, the traditional patron saint of animals and the environment popular with Catholics.
one loves a good nap, they all seem right to me.
http://www.hotellaguna.com/index.html gives you the pictures of the restaurant, but not the little lobby up front.
I might be the last person to ask about details of a non descript interior when it stands between me and a margarita on the beach. I do think the lobby up front may still have some of the furnishings from that look. I don't remember the inside seating of the restaurant having anything similar to that going back 15 years or so. Let me see if I can fit it into my travels in the next month or so.
I love this and wish it were decorated this way too. But for a cheap pizza and a marg I do love to sit out back on the water and watch the sunset there.
Wow this is so much like our kitchen when I was growing up! Dye her hair raven black, put some stretch pants on her with the loops that go around your feet, and it is my Mom right down to being small enough to sit on the counter, and she would have if it struck her fancy. A quick viceroy and then on her way to a Michigan rummy game with the girls.
Monica this is one of my faves. The little greenie reminds me of how much everybody smoked in our house when I was a kid. Once in the car when I told Mom the smoke was bothering me she said "breathe shallow honey."
Nessa there was a place where I grew up just like that, it was full of things that would make all of our eyes spin today. An old bachelor in the midwest inherited a department store and proceeded to buy things that interested him! The eye bolts holding the two pieces together hold a secret about the creator.
