Stuff I see, which you might not.

Just add sprinkles

on May 29, 2012

I am not embarrassed to say that I like sprinkles. I am not sure of the chemical process involved, but somehow, adding brightly coloured bits of sugar to your ice cream, cake, cappucino froth, or even just a piece of bread and butter turns it from ho-hum into an exciting party.

Which is why I was so pleased to find these sprinkle covered heels on etsy. Made by the clever people at MerloDesigns in the USA, these sweet shoes will liven up any outfit. But you probably shouldn’t wear them out on the town in the rain, just to be on the safe side. Although apparently, “the candy is 100% real, but 100% inedible! That’s right, these little guys have been glued and sealed to keep ants, mice, and other curious critters off your toes!” See, pretty and practical! You can check them out here.

Or there’s this fabulous rainbow resin bangle made by Nicola Williams in the UK – available from her etsy shop Made By Daisy here. Handmade to order, this beauty would make a great gift for any lass – although it will probably prove endlessly frustrating to hungry toddlers.

For summertime fun, you might like this 100s and 1000s giant inflatable Havaianas thong. Once you’ve blown it up, it’s 1.65m long and 65cm wide. Apparently it comes with a matching carry case. Surely it’s gotta be worth buying a pair, if only to scare other people at the beach or pool into thinking there are giants around. They are available at the Havaianas website.

Or for a slightly different take on art, here’s a piece by Joel Brochu – a recreation of a photograph of a dog getting washed. A recreation MADE OF SPRINKLES. Yep, for a Fine Arts project at university, Joel used jewellery tweezers to place each of the 221,184 sprinkles to form the image. Incredible. You can read more about this amazing artwork at My Modern Met.

And now, I’m off to make some fairy bread, with extra sprinkles.

    One of the things I have most had trouble adjusting to in Australia has been Fairy Bread. Really amazes me that people can justify it! The shoes look pretty amazing though.

      Yep, JM, always so popular with kids…and adults! It is kinda crazy when you think of it, so I find it’s best not to think of it & just enjoy! πŸ™‚

    You might enjoy the new 100s and 1000s Freddo. Treated Marc and I to one the other day. According to Marc “good value for a $1”!

    • Cate says:

      Ooooh, like the sound of them, BL, will be sure to check them out! And that’s a good endorsement from Marc – love it! πŸ™‚

  4. Have to agree on the fairy bread – I could never get my head around that either but I love LOVE that bangle …… I cannot believe that picture, that must have taken forever…. It certainly wasn’t a last minute rush job…..my word
