Look, a “TV” brand — as in a branding iron to imprint “TV” onto your cattle. Or your couch potatoes?
Spotted at one of our local antique malls.
I am finally getting through all the random, potentially amusing, pics on my phone. So check my other blogs, here & here especially.
Melinda’s napkin folding skills were so great, she was no longer content to confine her skills in the dining room.
He certainly seems to enjoy it.
When quiet time is a silent prayer for it all to end.

This graphic covers the plates from cars in films from 1964 to 2008. I’m not really a gear head, but I would have preferred photos to the illustrations myself. Via.
Not only do we eschew the rules for when to blog holiday stuff…
Not only do collectors of holiday items collect all year long…
But we must present what we find when we find it — especially when it’s goodies for sale.
Plus, as the back of this vintage photo of Iris Adrian reads, “You can come down our chimney anytime, Iris, and no need to wait for Christmas.”
Not to mention that the wreaths that Ida Lupino is shopping for are so fake, they are neither perishable nor time-sensitive. Don’t you just love the idea of a glamorous movie star wearing a fab hat and a mink coat while shopping for kitsch?
A vintage 8 x 10 inch glossy of Joyce Blanche Murray dressed as a bat — if bats actually have or wear images of themselves on themselves. Oh, and if you think it’s too early for the Halloween costumes, there’s no mention of that holiday. After all, this was Hollywood — and this is Kitschy Kitschy Coo. Rules don’t apply.
Press snipe on verso reads:
PERFECT PROFILE AND DANCING FEET
These are the two things that won for pretty Joyce Blanche Murray a long term contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures. Not only is Miss Murray a lovely person, but she holds the world’s endurance record for toe-dancing, almost 17 minutes. She has also stood on her toes for as long as 45 minutes. While doing a dance part in the sensational M.G.M. film, “The Broadway Melody”, she did the “triple-wing,” the “web-foot wing” and the “fast raffle,” the first time these dances have ever been done on the toes. The world-famous dancing instructor, Kosloff, calls her “Joyce of the iron Toes.” And rightly is she named.
Authentic vintage Elvis hat: black-and-white gabardine crew hat with six-color images, song title graphics and original 1956 brown white and red tag still affixed. Part of a lot from that Auction At Graceland.
I know we’re not really due for another Dames & Dogs post, but this is pretty special! The fabulous “people look like their dogs” bits from Disney’s 101 Dalmatians. Via.

In case you were wondering why there was such a liberal use of the #LawrenceWelk on Tweety Machine tonight, hubby & I were Live Tweeting tonight’s PBS showing of the 1979 Easter episode of The Lawrence Welk Show. (Live Tweeting is like a Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K) riff, only with even cheaper production value.) No, we didn’t blowup Twitter; but we did have an awful lot of fun. And so I thought, why not outline it all here for you, dear Kitschy Kitschy Coo readers. Typos and all; interspersed with some factoid linkage — you know, in case you wonder what the hell we nerds of kitsch are talking about.
— Oh, and before we get to that, we plan on Live Tweeting next week’s PBS episode of The Lawrence Welk Show. So if you’re at all interested, or just bored, join us on the Tweety at 7 PM Central.
(And then some Twitter bot account favorited the tweet because BOT.)
(That movie is here — yes, on DVD!)

(Hubby is trying to reference the author of Mary Poppins, P. L. Travers.
(A bot trying to sell flowers favorited that because BOT.)
