Thrifts of Terror: Live

I'm out and about on my day off and making a pretty good thrift haul. I just spied these at the Hamden, CT Goodwill.

I guess if you can't afford a set of Merry Mushroom canisters, you should just make your own. Or maybe the original colors just didn't cut it.

  1. The only thing I can think of that's tackier than those big-ass mushroom canisters is the big-ass mushroom tattoo my friend got back in the 80s...on her right boob. Now that's just gonna look incorrect in the nursing home one of these days...:(

    Of course, mine are tasteful and are going to look wonderful in the nursing home someday, sags, wrinkles and all...:)

  2. A mushroom tattoo? On a boob? No good can come of that.
    I actually think the original Merry Mushrooms have a kitsch appeal to them, but these are sad. The one on the left looks like it has a turd for a handle.

  3. I'm cracking up about the handle. There are just so many reasons why turds should never be applied to canister lids...

  8. Vonlipi-yes, so sad. I think Christine's description of "anemic" is most appropriate.

  9. Oh my, that handle does look like a poo!

    I could just imagine the look on the mothers face when her daughter/son presented them to her.. "honey, we'll just put them in the pantry, they'll look fab in there!" Or maybe she was so high on mushrooms, she loved them!
