Vintage Kitsch Everywhere

On a recent trip back to my  rural hometown I decided to visit my grandmother, master of kitsch with her 1950s cottage kitchen. I remembered the familiar winding pattern in the road and the pot holes that had been festering in the same spots for decades. Little did I know that I had completely forgotten about one particularly kitschy landmark. Driving around one bend in the road I found this...

I have no idea what led the owners of the barn to paint such a kitschy happy face, but I it totally made my day so I wanted to share it with you :) 

Check out the blog this weekend for a sneak peek of upcoming Agent 137 goodies, plus a feature about vintage kitschy clocks....


  1. I doubt I will...but if I ever have a barn one day, mark my words I'm turning it into an anthropomorphic one by painting a cheeky face on it!

  2. if you ever do you would definitely have to send me many pics! :)

  3. That is the greatest barn I've ever seen! :D

  4. Thank you! I am so in love with it. I might have to paint my own someday...
