Ah, it's the kitsch vintage things that make me smile!

Hello hello!!

I bought these kitsch beauties from a house call not too long ago, and I only just got around to buying some toothpicks to make it complete! Huh? :)

Vintage kitsch things have always made me smile.  I’ve mentioned many-a-time that kitsch things remind me of my Mum & Nan, as both of them would like the cheeky, quirky, humorous angles they turn everyday items into.

Today I wanted to show you some vintage toothpick holders I bought.

Hehe don’t they just make you smile??

They’re little wooden carved cacti with holes all over to hold your toothpicks so they resemble PRICKLES!

It’s so simple isn’t it? And what a talking point they’d be at my dinner party. (Perhaps over some tacos?)

I’ve seen a few varieties of these holders including a hedgehog which was pretty darn cute!  But I’ve always had a thing for cacti.  They’re so decorative!
