The Cheesy Tchotchke Tuesday Link Up

I don't condone stopping in late afternoon traffic to take photos but I had to snap this display I saw in Monona. It reminded me of my Grandma Clem's house and I adored her and all her cheesy tchotchkes.

I think she (I'm assuming) started out with the 4th and worked her way through the holidays

Then at some point, it got out of hand

And she (I'm assuming) went with it

And with that, it's time for the weekly Say Cheese! Link Up

Do you have a photo with attitude, cattitude, pupittude or pluck?
You heard me, pluck.
How about a recipe made with cheese, how hard can that be.
Link up with whatever you've got because it's time to
SAY CHEESE!
Spread the cheese, please and visit a few of your blogger buds below.

    1. I have a feeling it's only going to expand, Brian. Might be fun for an outdoor kitty to explore.

  5. How interesting. In my photo today it's Sydney Tower which has an observation deck and revolving restaurant. Westfield has naming rights because it sits above their shopping centre. Click on the link for a closer look.

    1. Ah, that is very cool, I may not have the nerve to try it especially while eating, but I bet it's quite the view. I may have seen the tower in another post of yours.

    1. I hope no one does, Susie (I almost called you, "Molly." I must have cat on the brain, cat brain.) There's another one like this in Lake Mills, is this what they mean by "granny style?"

    2. Hahah, I already wear granny boots like the ones worn by Granny Daisy of Ellie Mae and Jethro. I wouldn't mind wearing granny dresses again. They were quite comfortable. It felt like I was wearing nightgowna to school.

    3. I can't remember Granny's boots, were they like big ol' army boots? I can see how a breeze up your business might make a granny dress comfy. Why not, people feel free to wear pajamas to the store.

    4. My interpretation of granny's boots back then were combat boots, which were ooh-la-la Victorian like.

    5. I think that's a delightful interpretation (:

    1. Ha, I don't think she (again assuming) would be willing to part with a single one.

  10. Wow, how long has she been collecting?I think my only large collection is paintings. Oh, I forgot, my Xmas decorations:) Cheese!

    1. Who knows, J., but I'd bet she's not done yet. You should get your Christmas decorations together with your paintings.

  11. I had to look up tchotchkes, we call them trinkets or ornaments. I have never been a great lover but each to their own. How can you store them all outside though, around her they'd be taken in an instant. But, that would probably be a good thing in my opinion. cheesy indeed.

    1. I have to constantly check the spelling, could it be a harder word to spell? My dad's side of the family are big collectors of all sorts of things like that, I always thought it was funny. A whole bunch of us were collecting spoons there for awhile thanks to my gramma, dad and Aunt Ginny. My theory is that would be thieves take one look, shake their heads and walk away.

  12. I assume tchotchkes are what we would call knickknacks :)

    1. Yes, Nikki-ann, only I think tchotchke people have taken that wide step across the line.
