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!)

    …is that supposed to be “menstrual gift?” Admittedly, “minstrel gift” is more poetic (and hilarious…)
