Between periods of the Blackhawks’ hockey game, I decided to do my Oddball Photo Challenge post.  It was a no-brainer this week.  While my s-i-l was here for Easter, we stopped at the Crate and Barrel Outlet store, where items are no longer heinously expensive, just moderately expensive.  Browsing the shelves in the clearance area, I came across these “beauties.”  I’m not a lawn ornament fan and these are…well, let’s just say they’re a bit much, whether inside or out, and don’t give me the Christmas spirit. Check out the “bargain” price, too.

    Really odd if you ask me. Great for the challenge, indeed.

  2. bwahahahaha. yes indeed. all that glitters must be. . . .wait. sold?

    • I supposed someone will buy them, Rick, but what a price for something I hope you’d only use once a year. Not really my thing, but perfect for the challenge. 🙂


      • yes. exactly. someone will buy them. and as you said, perfect for this photo purpose. sometimes the world is so unbelievable I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. might as well have fun. . . . aloha.

      • I know exactly what you mean, Rick. A big trend over the last years is to have a shiny colored ball, the size of a bowling ball, in the garden. Not a fan, but lots of people seem to like them.

      • I haven’t seen those here yet. maybe they are disco era nostalgia??

      • I don’t know, Rick, I just know they’re not at all my thing…except for being perfect for this challenge.

    Those gnomes are hysterical! Great find!

    😀 Hahaha, what a “bargain”! 😀
    But if the sun shines they might look nice somewhere outside in the garden, half hidden underneath a bush or a tree…
    Great entry!
    Have a very HAPPY Sunday 🙂

    • Not really my sort of decoration, indoors or out, but I’m quite sure there are people who would love them, if not the sale price.

      A very happy Sunday to you as well, although yours is much further along than mine.

    Most definitely a no brainer this week. I would never buy them, but they are wonderful and spot on for odd balls 😀

  7. Not if they were giving them away! 😀

  8. Cool photo, just not my thing – too expensive and then they are likely to be stolen

  9. pommepal says:

    Not to my taste either and certainly not at that price.

    Not my taste at all!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
