Lobsters Who Entertain

I'm working on a longer post about libraries (in honor of the Dewey Donation System, more on that tomorrow), but in the meantime, here's a picture of today's finds in the Target dollar bin. A mini bucket decorated with a cute lobster, napkins covered with lobsters, and lobster swizzle sticks! There were also lobster decorated tongs, spatulas, aprons, toothpicks, and ceramic dishes, but they were insufficiently cute to bring home.

They bear a "Lobster Bake" label. Just imagine - friendly lobsters pulling trays of muffins out of the oven, wearing big mitts to protect their claws. Lobsters with pastry skills! Who knew?

The actual goal of the Target trip was to get cards (Father's Day, birthdays, weddings, etc), and I can't believe how many we needed. When I get a little more time, I'm going back into the card-making biz. I'm sure there is a market for lobster cards.

A side note: Nanny K posted a poignant and funny story about her last visit to a certain coffee shop.
