Lundi Gras is French for "Fat Monday" followed by Mardi Gras "Fat Tuesday". Here is my offering to get you in the "Fat Spirit". Photo is a mix of prized throws one would hope to catch at a Mardi Gras Parade. Beads of all colors, shapes, and sizes. Some even with Porcelain Face Dolls as seen here, and Doubloons . Some of these Doubloons such as the solid bronze and silver are worth big bucks to some collectors, but most are made of aluminum of many colors. Have A Fat Day !

What a great shot. Would I ever like to see this as a jigsaw would be a blast to assemble. Wonderful topic, wonderful colors, on and on and on.

Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight.

wow... that's an assault on my red and blue receptors... in a good way. Very nicely done. Do you know how they color the aluminum?
