Allee Willis’ Kitsch O’ The Day – Elvis Presley Christmas Ornament

If I wanted anyone serenading me with Christmas carols it would be Elvis. This Christmas ornament of The King captures his 1950′s essence complete with slim body, pompadour and up-curled lip though some 1970′s puffiness is starting to invade his cheeks.

Hallmark did a nice job of capturing his ever-on-point foot to match his snarled lip:

I’m not sure what this Elvis is made of. He’s not quite plastic and not quite metal but is heavier than a normal Christmas ornament and has a nice secure screw in his head.

In case the buyer or recipient has no idea who Elvis was Hallmark has provided a nice explanation, borrowing a little from Frank Sinatra.

I hope you have a very Elvis holiday season with lots of fried chicken and peanut butter and banana sandwiches!

After too many peanut butter and banana sandwiches with bacon Elvis has left the building…

    Probably made out of resin, from how you described it. And, hey, Elvis DID do a well-received version of “My Way” in the Seventies :)

      I know he did “My Way” and it was classic. But it will forever be Sinatra’s song (tho I’d always vote for Elvis).

    I’ve got a couple of different Elvis in his Gold Lame Nudie Suit ornaments on my Nudie Tree, as well as one of him in his “Lovin’ You” Nudie Suit . . . I also cherish my potholder from Graceland with the recipe for his peanut butter and banana sandwiches. I think he ate the bacon separately, or on the side, but who’s to argue with Wikipedia.

    Would to see your Elvis ornaments, especially on your Nudie tree, at The Allee Willis Museum Of Kitsch @ AWMOK.com. I’ve seen the potholder but have never had the pleasure of owning it myself. Would love to see that there too. Direct link to upload is http://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/how-to-submit/.

    Thanks Allee — I’ll have to start uploading my treasures . . . The ornaments and potholder are kitsch of a rather recent vintage, as opposed to some of my more seasoned stuff.

    I love it all so don’t be shy!
