Getting older is fun because, well, mainly because you get presents. And if you have awesome parents like mine who are tuned in to your collecting passions, chances are you aren’t going to be re-gifting anything. This year my card was musical, and played “Walk Like an Egyptian” by the Bangles. I got a lot of presents (surprisingly, I have been VERY good this year) but my mostest favorite is this 1950s punch bowl complete with stand and cups. It must never have been used because not one scratch mars the Pepto-Bismol pink interiors or black exteriors, which are simply painted on over clear glass. The only Egyptianizing design to this delicious concoction is the metallic gold hieroglyphic detailing. Isn’t it fabulous!
