Trash or treasure....



I have a friend whose office keeps a stash of 'tacky gifts'.

The office stash of 'tacky gifts' is a collection of souvenirs,  from everyone's holiday trips, to see who could find the worst one / the silliest one / the most useless one / the most meaningless one. I should also mention that these are not the good souvenirs, rather the type of item that will have you asking - 'What exactly is this????' or 'Somebody expects me to buy that????'.  

She once let my kids rummage the office stash of 'tacky gifts' and pick one each for themselves. They opted to rescue the Beachbabe (above), as well as the Flamenco dancers (below) from the box.

I don't care what anybody else thinks - I absolutely love these figurines and couldn't resist showing them off.

Whatever you're doing today, I sincerely hope you're having as much fun as they are!

One man's trash, another man's treasure!

  1. Did you say 'beach babe' or 'beached whale'?

  3. I can't believe the beachbabe is getting all the stick - the female flamenco dancer has hardly been doing the Michelle O'Bama workout(I believe that is the correct spelling now he has Irish roots)! And most of all I can't believe you didn't "accidently" drop them when you moved!!

  4. LOL @ O'Bama!
    My kids were on a mission to make sure these 'National Treasures' got to their new home safely! I had to ask (very) nicely before I was even allowed to photograph them for the blog!
