It seemed only fitting that I share this on our last day of a most fabulous trip to California, as it kinda sums up the way I’m feeling as we pack our bags:

I picked up a set of 3 of these tall highball glasses when I was thrifting / antiquing recently in Delaware, and I could not resist them and their oddball sayings. This one does particularly hit home:

I’m TRYING!

I don’t want to admit that in less than 24 hours that’s where I’m going to be, but since we have a few more hours on our vacation I better go out there and make the most of it!

(Here are the other two glasses, so the complete collection is in the Museum!)

This lady claims that you don’t need to drink to have fun, but I’m thinking the “but it sure helps” must’ve rubbed off!

And this guy’s drink is “Scccchhhhmoooooth” !

A welcomed addition to our ever growing kitsch bar at the Hacienda!

    Totally jealous over those glasses! I have a lot of similar ones but none quite this good. Graphics are incredible as are sentiments. And I love the shape of the glass as well. Most of the 50s and 60s glasses with illustrations are straight up.

    I would be depressed if I had to leave LA too. Which means that you should hurry back. Which also means you should pack your suitcases and head West permanently…

    If these glasses are any indication, and I know they are, I hope to see much much much more of your collection!

    The glasses were indeed a total find, and while I can see places where the decal has been washed away, I plan on taking good care of ’em!

    Now that we’re settling down back at the Hacienda I’ll have to get back in the swing of posting some of my fun finds. But our place looks positively zen compared to yours! Something to aspire to :-)

    Already collecting up the list of people we missed and placed to go to for our next trip to L.A. – Cliff goes out there in July for music stuff, I’m thinking I might just tag along!

      You should absolutely tag along with Cliff (and start looking for places here!).

      Really, seriously, would love to see more of your stuff here at AWMOK. I love the community we’ve built here. It really has become not only a place to hang with like-minded, excessively hip and style minded folk, but an absolute encyclopedia of kitsch. I know you have a lot to contribute to that!

      Very nice getting to meet this weekend. I look forward to much more!

      NEVER put applied paint glasses in the dishwasher! I ruined a set of Greyhound Racing glasses that way! Pooh!
