Corner View - Silly

Walking through L.A.'s "gift district"

it's hard not to be reminded that notwithstanding the

charm and cheer that an individual gift item might represent...... 

when you see it in really great numbers, i.e., as the "commodity" that it is, and scale it up to a global obsession with consumption.  It really starts to seem quite "silly"!

What do you think? 


  1. I'm not able to think when I see all this… have a real beautiful day!

  2. I concur. It IS more than a bit silly. I feel claustrophobic just looking at these. :-)

  3. Yes, it is silly to see these things all together.xo

  4. very silly. and i totally agree with Rambling Tart; i feel a little claustrophobic. two words always come to mind when i see things like these: land fill. xoxo

  5. agree ... silly and claustrophobic :)

  6. Bon, je n'en voudrais pas chez moi, mais j'adore !!!
