Mamma Biscuit and family understand that the fabulousness of Christmas doesnâ€™t only exist within the confines of the dirty and over-crowded streets of an urban metropolis. Just ask Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers and theyâ€™ll both sing you an entire albums worth of Christmas songs from and for the rural smoky mountain folk who actually burn a real yule log instead of playing it digitally on the TV screenâ€”like us! So to honor those folks out yonder, Mamma Biscuit has put together a small and humble paper village of vintage goods and accessories that will surely make you yearn to live in a small town like Chevy Chase in Funny Farm, or worse, Diane Keaton in Baby Boom. It’s amazing what people will do to experience that Norman Rockwell/Americana Christmas that is displayed all over those damn greeting cardsâ€”alongside Santa guzzling a bottle of Coca-Cola before stuffing his wide ass back up your chimney!
Now this paper village is a budding new obsession of mineâ€”as you can see, we only have three buildings but might I warn you that this is exactly how Mammaâ€™s Metropolis got started back in the day, and I have no doubt this will triple in size come Christmas 2012! I really got into collecting those vintage pines in different colorsâ€”hey, Mamma needs a variety of tree trunks to pee on, I was only thinking of her! This small vignette of a town is the perfect Christmas getaway from Mammaâ€™s Metropolisâ€”the deer can roam free without the threat of being run over by an SUV with skis attached to the roofâ€”there are no paved roads YET!
So now that Christmas Village Week is coming to a close, the Biscuits will be preparing to unveil Mammaâ€™s grand tree and the overly-decked halls within the pug palace next weekâ€”so brace yourself, because Mammaâ€™s tree makes a Christopher Radko showroom look like Christmas in a Swedish householdâ€”tasteful yet full of too much negative space!
And lastly, the best gift this world has ever given us all is Dolly Parton and her unyielding love for Christmasâ€”that and a bust that would honestly make me go straight!
