I don't regard this work as "kitsch' ('vulgar trash,' in German), don't regard it as crassly over-sentimentalized, etc.
Rather, you have created a near-kitsch miss that I find--truly find--endearing and enchanting. Was that not your intention?

I'd say the commonly used meaning of kitsch is retro items whose display is below the standards of tasteful decor. I didn't include pink flamingoes or garden gnomes because we have them in our obviously classy yard. And yes, Hummels don't really qualify but it made a nice background.

Well, Punwit, since all you EVER do is kitsch, kitsch, kitsch, I should've known that "endearing and enchanting" were off your radar screen. Sorry to have accused you of having created a kind-hearted work for once. What puzzles me is how really ticked-off you were by my well-meaning praise. Seems weird...
