Still punk at heart.


Born somewhere between Berlin and Australia, influenced by street art, garden gnomes and expat life – be kitschig is dedicated to all those little things that just make this world a better place.


My Motto: Be nice. This is fairly easy. If we are all a bit nicer and are considerate of others, this world will be a better place.

Join be kitschig and share your guilty pleasures.


Be nice!

Be green!

Be kitschig!

Give it a go. This is my best Social Media thingy.









This is how I started out many moons ago and this blog is slowly turning into a quirky kitschy Scrapbook kinda thing. Erm.

Maybe I like to show rather than tell?

Thanks for visiting!

I am a sincere lover of kitsch and anything quirky.
This blog is supposed to hurt your eyes a bit.

If you have recently written a post about something kitschy or tacky and would like to share it, please contact me.

In the meantime, I’ll dream about tolerance, freedom and world peace.
