Mother-In-Law's Birthday Toasted, Literally
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
When Laura Hadland decided to toast her mother-in-law's 50th birthday, she did so literally. The museum curator, along with 40 friends, pieced together nearly 10,000 slices of toast to create a giant birthday portrait of her mother-in-law. The artwork, in Warrington, England, broke the world record for largest toast mosaic and left its subject bemused: I love toast, but it feels very strange seeing my face made out of it.
