Food or decoration?

Andy Warhol Limited Edition Campbell's Soup Cans are now for sale only at Target. My local flyer has them priced .75 a can.

1.2 million limited-edition cans of condensed tomato soup with labels inspired by his Pop art are for sale. The specially designed Campbell's soup cans pay tribute to his lively color palette, using orange, blue, pink and teal to spruce up the familiar design. The labels commemorate the 50th anniversary of Warhol's famed art piece "32 Campbell's Soup Cans."

I squealed at Target when I saw these. Unfortunately my husband was with me and did not understand so I calmly bought one can (yellow and green). When we got home I proudly put it on the mantle of our fireplace with some other pop art items, he thinks I am crazy to display canned food as art. I went back a few days later and bought two of every color. I peeled the labels off of one set so I can frame them.

ooo, love the idea of framing the labels. Can't go wrong for art under a $1!

Hi Jenn, I've never been to the east, I would love to visit sometime. I live in Plymouth, MI, 10 miles from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Both of great towns, with lots to do.
