Recycled Crayons – all about the Stache!

Depending on where you live, you may have noticed an influx of finely waxed and shaped facial hair.  Hipsters are sporting handlebars and mustaches are becoming the epitome of cool…again.

A couple of years ago my family out for a casual bite to eat and the restaurant we were at had little vending machine toys.  All of us ended up with stick-on staches which was an awesome photo-op.  Lots of giggles and pics, and they have been a family favorite ever since.  We have some mustache socks, mustache rings, and this year all of the Christmas stockings sported a variety of stache pins in all sorts of shapes and colors.  I have my eye on some mustache pint glasses for my birthday.  They are just too funny.  Who can have a bad time with a pelt of fur stuck under their nose?

I love these mustache crayons because they are a funny novelty that are priced at fair novelty fare.  ($4.95) Made from recycled Crayola crayons (which are the best!) they are a great stocking stuffer, birthday favor, or fun “Thinking of You” small gift.

Have to share a “two worlds colliding story”.  While working on this entry, I got a call from Laguna Beach’s Pageant of the Masters, letting me know that my daughter got a part this summer.  However, she needed to let me know, it is for a male part and she will be wearing… a mustache!  She wanted to make sure that was going to be alright.  Boy, did they cast the right girl!  Still laughing!
