Ceramic bank. From my personal collection.

As you can probably tell, this happy guy is a little the worse for wear. We’ve been using this bank to store the quarters for our laundry, but I think the humidity of the laundry has affected the paint. It’s bubbled and cracked in a few places, making this otherwise happy bank look a bit like a zombie smiley face. (Which is kind of cool.)

So we’ve finally retired him, just today replacing him with a cheap Mason jar for the coins and letting him live out the rest of his days as a simply reminder to smile. Even when you’re a member of the undead. 🙂

Timer. From my personal collection.

For a long time this lived in my kitchen, but then my wife — who, I’m very grateful to say, does all our laundry — needed a new timer for laundry day, and I was only too happy to volunteer the smiley face! Makes laundry day seem like less of a chore. (I hope.)
