"Give a Hoot, Don't Pollute"

Ads #12: Give a Hoot, Don't Pollute

In the 70s, kids had it beaten into their heads night and day that dropping a soda can on the sidewalk = the total and complete destruction of the planet earth.

Kitschy Living

Just a blog about the things i love, all things kitsch! If it's tacky, ugly, campy, cutesy, quirky or wonderful, you'll find it here. You'll also find some vintage and retro things as well. What is Kitsch? Kitsch is pleasingly distasteful. It's melodramatic, overdone, gaudy and tacky or sentimental and folksy. It's so bad that it's cool.
