Home Decorating Tip

What you're seeing above is a 6" ceramic tile:

In celebration of the illustrious career of Michael Chertoff, Edison Clay Co. located in Fort Myers, FL, is releasing a very limited edition set of tiles which commemorate his service to our country. Each tile is hand-pressed and numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Only 1000 will be produced and the original plaster molds will then be destroyed.

Something tells me this isn't their hottest seller, so why not get all 1,000 and do an entire area of your house? Oh, sure, $30,000 might seem like a lot of money, but the result would be a room so stunning, David Lynch would cry.

Or, you know, you could always go for Carol Channing.

All are equally frightening. The Bernie Maddoff can't be a gigantic seller, either, but the manufacturers think enough of the Andrew Wyeth to sell it for $60 instead of $30.

Six inches square is a little large, but they might be useful as drink coasters, especially on festive occasions. Wonderful conversation starters!

Plaster molds? That design looks screenprinted to me. How is that tile "molded?"

(P.S. I just got turned on to your blog a couple months ago -- it was so sad to see Ursula go just I as was starting to fall under her spell...)

I think they'd make swell skeet targets.

Why only 1000 will be produced?

A whole wall of Carol and Michael together! His vampirous glower and her open-mouthed cry for help!
