i hate wet feet, wet socks, feet, and general dirtyness from the ankle down. a friend of mine told me how he thought everyone who wore rainboots had to be mildly retarded because they look so ridiculous, especially in los angeles. but mild retardation is completely okay to have if it means having dry socks.
Ceramic open-mouthed whale makes the perfect vintage-inspired ashtray or soap dish (just not both at once...).
There's something about this that I just love. It makes me think of Pinnocchio, and has enough whimsy, menace and adventure that it'll make for a curious curiousity in whatever capacity in whatever home.
I love the little whale.
