Mele Kalikimaka

In case you've ever wondered what kind of high-class, fancy pants sort of Xmas decorating I do, wonder no more, my little figgy puddings. This is what happens when you drink and deck the halls...

Photobucket get a garland of mini cocktail shakers and martini glasses. I had boring-ass white lights (not a fan) strung around the hallway arch and it needed some kind of tacky white-trashification...a few Mai Tais later and voila! A Martha Stweart Christmas is born. I have a couple dozen each of the martinis and shakers~ they're not vintage of course but schmacy all the same, from a few years ago when I had a "real" job, a retail management stint that sold kitschy crap like this at Xmas. I've been trying to figure out a way of making a necklace out of them, but so far it's a fail. Too heavy and clunky. And also, I'm pretty sure the white girl Mr. T-meets-Flavor Flav look is...not good, at the very least.


Notice the hand-crafted (AKA mass-produced in China) attention to detail in the olive-on-stick.


And the lid comes off the shaker! I love working, movable parts on mini things. The shaker would make a swell gift-giving receptacle, but considering it's all of 3" tall, what could one put in it? Poppy seeds? Tic Tacs? Valium? "Merry Christmas, Grandma! Look inside! It's half an ounce of dope! Good for you!"

(More trashy decorating to come, assuming the spiced rum holds out...)


  1. Wow! I love it!!! That was a killer idea put into motion, for reals, Im not being a smart ass. You came up with a great decorating idea!

    That'd be cool if they came filled with Xanax, I love that stuff even though Ive only had it like 2 or 3 times. It just puts you in this great "I dont give a fuck" mood concerning...everything. But, my Dr. knows better than to give me anything that is dangerously habit forming, shes such a buzz kill.

    Anyway Kim, killer decorations, I love it!!! =)

  2. Aww, thanks! I'm glad someone else appreciates the trashy wonderfullness of it!
