Cheerful Little Oranges

It's nice to have a bit of sunlight on a dreary grey January day. If sun is not available, try a miniature orange or two for a spot of cheer. I did this on Wednesday for one of Trader Joe's featured items. Clementines are sometimes considered to be a variety of "Mandarin Orange." They're also good for juggling. The "retro" ornamentation on this sign appeared in early 1960s housewares such as Formica tabletops. Uphold the illusion of bygone innocence.

Who has been juggling oranges at TJ's?

Well, I've never seen anyone juggle oranges at Trader Joe's. But it seems like something that should be done to keep up the cheerful atmosphere there.
