could anyone spare a taxidermied waterfowl?

I have been on the hunt for some old photocubes for some time now. It started as my brilliant holiday gift idea; I'd fill them with various meaningful pics for various meaningful people. I scoured thrift stores with no luck and I finally tracked some down at Target, but they were too pricey for a block of plastic, if you ask me. Anyway, I scrapped the present idea, but I've kept my eyes open, and this weekend I found a few at TFA.

I've had a few ideas about how I would fill the cubes:

  • pictures of my puppy
  • pictures of cupcakes!
  • old family photos of our parents as kids, etc.
Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to top the pictures that came with the photocube packaging:


A miniature golden piano (being caressed ever-so-gently by Barbara Streisand's doppelganger), a collection of creepy plastic dolls and a senior portrait with a ship replica? Honestly people, how can I do better than that?

Geeg'
Grandma Claussen has a picture cube. Do you remember it? AND, she had that exact same "gold" piano. I think I had it for awhile. Did you girls play with it?
