An art project by Laura Mappin:

A decorative work of art to commemorate that you’ve done your Tampon Time and you’re Free At Last! This art object of a tampon symbol is beautifully hand crocheted out of metallic gold thread and hangs in a distinctive black shadow box. Gold trophy labels celebrate “Golden Tampon” and “Lifetime Achievement Award”. Give it to your partner or spouse, your best friend, or even yourself! Makes a great menopausal gift or post-menopausal gift although it’s probably not a minstrel gift. Celebrate newfound liberation with The Change! Freedom from The Curse! Get some of the best medicine, as they say. Laugh off those hot flashes!

(Thanks, Hilary!)
