Magnet Monday: Gecko Gecko

Cheesy Refrigerator Magnet for Monday, February 16, 2015
"Untitled", enameled metal, circa 2011

A friend of ours recently decided to make some radical changes in her life (love can do that), one of which involves relocating to an exotic Polynesian island sporting palm trees and volcanos (seriously). For her, relocating means a beach front home, and geckos galore. One particularly large gecko has a predictable dumping ground, from the rafters. She hasn't named him. Yet.   

This gecko is based on the petroglyphs in the American Southwest, which makes sense that we found it in Arizona on one of our trips there. In Native American lore, lizards indicate transformation, dreams, and renewal. I think our friend on her island would agree. 

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.
