art, objects, or design considered to be in poor taste because of excessive garishness or sentimentality, but sometimes appreciated in an ironic or knowing way.
To my friends here, I present...
The Crab Pen!
from as the natives say it, "Bawl'more"
You could read about that excursion in the
post here (LINK)
Anyway, around Christmas we took a little trip to the harbor and I went into a tourist shop full of fun stuff and asked the clerk to direct me to the tackiest tourist stuff he had.
He was flummoxed because well, let's just say it, the whole shop qualified.
Little crab fridge magnets, change purses with claws, Old Bay flavored chips.
I chose this little gem for you, just in case you can't make it to Baltimore to visit with me, you can say your friend LeeAnna went to Baltimore and sent this to me!
Instructions for use:
move the little lever, the crab claws pinch something and the nib pops out.
To enter, leave a comment (make sure I have your email addy) and tell me the tackiest trinket souvenir you ever bought or received.
I am having the time of my life meeting you all online, thanks for visiting. LeeAnna
UPDATE the winner has been chosen by Mr. Notafraidofcolor and it's quiltshopgirl! I wish I had one for each of you cause those stories were priceless. There is another giveaway coming up. Good luck! LeeAnna
