Not On My Christmas List
It's funny how the older I get, the less I seem to know.
Or, worse, I find out that things I always thought are actually wrong. For instance, I grew up thinking the French are uber-chic.
I was wrong.
These creepy baby lamps are from the land of cheese and chocolate.
Get a load of the description: "part cool and part eerie, these pop baby dolls are actually lamps, with bulbs in their derrieres. produced by a company with over 100 years under their belt, the models are based on old celluloid molded dolls."
I'm not sure which is scarier, that these were even crafted or that they are sold out.
Who puts that in the house? On the upside, at least in France they used "celluloid molded dolls" 'cuz you know if they'd been made in, ahem, a certain other country that has some fairly horrendous manufacturing practices when it comes to baby formula and dog food, then real babies probably would have been used.
