Hands-on Kitsch circa 1987

This picture was a long lost discovery this year not long after I moved back here to Southern California from a few years in Phoenix. Going through boxes of yesteryear is like digging through a treasure trove!

This was the Christmas of ’87 and that year I got the “Pee-wee’s Playhouse” playset— complete with the cast of character figurines.  My brother, Shawn (on the left) and I immerse ourselves into playhouse heaven!

We were hands-on kitsch’n it— and didn’t know it!

    My favorite thing about this is how you boys match the environment so perfectly. Your shirts match the boxes in back of you, the Playhouse set, as well as the things stacked next to the Christmas tree. And then your hair, especially the way the light is shining on both of your heads, goes completely with the flooring.

    Is that Terrazzo?
