Commercial Art

Apparently I don't get out much. While running errands I was mesmerized by the number of towels in the store - it seemed more like art than a practical "in-stock" item. How often do you suppose someone comes in on any given day and purchases 20 towels in "buttercup" or "cappuccino"? What was amazing to me was that these towels were available in just about every rainbow color and shade. Need 35 neon orange towels? No problem!

This gnome candle had my name written all over it. Seriously - who doesn't want one of these!! However after considering the gnome would be hat-less after burning the candle, combined with the fact that there was no way on God's green earth that I was going to pay $40 for some candle wax sneakily shaped like one of my favorite characters, I left him on the shelf.
