Still Life: Vintage Kitsch

Back when I was very little, my grandmother had some shelves in her kitchen with some very kitschy figurines. They were cheap, kinda tacky, and I absolutely loved them. After she passed away, the figurines were so worthless that they were destined as 25¢ garage sale items. But I saved them!!

I only have a few things from my grandparents – but these little figurines are my very favorite thing from her home. Every time I look at them I feel like I am 5 years old, gazing up at them on her wall, and smelling pipe tobacco, fabric softener, and pot roast in the oven. I had two favorite figurines – one I shattered many years ago (and I hunt for a replacement daily on Ebay!). The other one was this charming little zebra.
