Monday's Catch of the Day!

All righty, things have slowed down a bit and I have time to do some more blogging again. Sorry to keep everyone waiting!

I thought I should do a bit of vintage Disney merchandise, so I pulled this odd little number from my collection. When I received it, it was very badly tarnished, but with a little care I got it looking quite sweet and shiny again. It is a pendant- a lobster to be exact... an odd choice for Disneyland merchandise, with a tag attached that says "New Orleans Square" on it. It appears to be something from the late 60s. I've never seen another or any other crustaceans from N'awlins. Does anyone have any idea which shop might have carried this? I'd love to find out.
Happy Monday, everyone! Hope it's a great week! :D
On a side note, in addition to being an artist I also work in medical research in search of a cure for paralysis/spinal cord injuries. We are a private group and are in desperate need of more funding to move things into human clinical trials. We have applied for funding and find out this week if we get it. Any prayers you all could make would be so greatly appreciated! We need this so badly! Thanks! :D

The charm is from Lafittes Silver Shop which was located where the estate jewelry shop is located. My family used to buy pewter cast soldiers there.

Is it a lobster, or a crawdaddy??

Good luck getting your funding!
