"Scarab", scarab beetle, circa 2011
We picked up this reassuringly inert beetle in the museum gift shop (shocker!!) after the Cleopatra exhibit at the Milwaukee Public Museum a few years ago. It's most magical quality is magnetism. And I'm happy with that.
Magnet Monday features a selection from our semi-vast and ever growing collection of cheesy refrigerator magnets. Without doubt the perfect souvenir. Only slightly less cheesy than collecting snow globes but maybe a lot easier to smuggle in your bra. If need be. Which I hope it never is. Unless it's really worth it.
