Some one mentioned tacky bird feeders - would this do?
Yeah... that would qualify as totally tacky. The problem with these birdhouses is that no self-respecting bird would consider 'em. So... what's the point? Garden decor? I suppose you might be able to call it a bird feeder and maybe, with the bar stools, that's what it is supposed to be. But a bird feeder has to be made of some kind of material that will stand up to being cleaned regularly. That doesn't look like it would do very well in bleach water.
Diane, I get your point about Dys's flamingos, but if I saw a display like that I'd assume it was done tongue-in-cheek. He knew they were tacky and was just having fun with it.
I have an Asian sensibility about this. Japanese gardens, for example, have some stuff in them that one might think is tacky... those stone lanterns or the bamboo water drums. But at least there is some reason for their existence. To me, if something has a use, real or historical, and it best suited to that, then it can hardly be called tacky. Of course, with that definition, the fake ruins of Victorian gardens would be tacky... and they are, but they are also so glamorous that it is hard to hate 'em.
