Christmas Desktop Goodies

My desktop is especially cluttered with treats right now, but I’ll choose a few to share…

I have a massive collection of vintage Krampus greetings, but this one (shared by my friend Kevin) was new to me this year. It is perhaps one of the most ominous holiday greetings in existence.

I suppose there’s also this:

Well, I guess THIS could happen too.

Santa, eat some cookies. This doesn’t look…natural.

Santa’s true anatomy is clearly documented here:

And here:


Much jolly-ness…

“Have a Living Christmas Tree Ornament in the House.” Yes folks, remember that pets are nothing more than objects to adorn for your own amusement (I’ve had a few retrospectively comedic instances of people not picking up on my sarcasm, but anyone who has followed this blog knows I adore and respect pets more than most humans).

In the mid 20th century it was proper etiquette to smile during imminent danger.

Okay kids, on the count of three, smile and say FIERY HORROR!

Speaking of…

Ice cream on a tree? I like the way you think.

For some reason I really enjoy this old catalog page, despite not actually liking most of the candy in it (people choose hard candies when chocolate exists?). Points for aesthetics though.

Now for an EEEEEEVIL twist:

And from my Sinister Gift Guide:

Sorry abomindable snowman…I find you kind of adorable.

  1. Great collection! But I just have to try and ask: What IS that second card where the monkey (?) attacks a yeti (?)?

      I wish I knew, Christine! Unfortunately, I follow a bunch of Tumblr blogs that never cite their sources. I’d love to see ALL the cards that company produced if I only knew where they came from!

      • And I’m grateful I can use your blog to have the good stuff filtered out for me 😀

        I’ve never commented before but I’ve had you on my RSS for a long time – so let me commend your great taste here (which is great because it matches mine, of course…).

        I really consider printing out that yeti-monkey thing for next year’s Christmas cards 😀

  2. That monkey/yeti thing made me audibly “WTF”. I just can’t think of anything that would lead up to that picture.

    I love “celebration bowels”, such a seasonal affliction!

    Great collection!

      Haha…I thought you’d get a kick out of that card! I really wish I knew where it came from. Perhaps we are missing out on others.

  3. Such fun! I must learn to knit so I can pass out nose warmers next year! Consider one for you!

    • shewalkssoftly Says:

      Oh Carrie, if you ever do this you MUST send pictures! And I would be forever indebted to anyone who made me a nose warmer. 🙂

  4. I just love these. What a beautiful baby! All his pruoecis little facial expressions are perfect and you even got his little back wrinkles! Love it!
