I am nightmare walking, psychopath stalking... Just kidding! This post is not about Ice-T or the Crips and Bloods. (*wonders if anyone will get this allusion*)
I took this photo of a bunch of gala apples from the orchard where Andy is working. I love that aqua and red color combination, as I've mentioned before.
And then yesterday, this came.
Isn't it purdy? I was shopping for my best friend's birthday on Etsy (SO MUCH fun!), and when I saw this in Whimsy House's Etsy shop, I had to have it. Molly makes charming (and very nicely priced) jewelry using vintage buttons. Isn't it fab?
(Please excuse the chipped, grown-out manicure. The color is OPI Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ, for those who care about that sort of thing. It's my favorite red nail polish. I'm on the hunt for a brick red shade. Any suggestions?)
Anyway, back to fun and vibrant color combinations, I was tickled pink last night when Andy served me slices of salted avocado (mmmmmm!) on an orange melmac plate.
Doesn't that rock?
About those apples, I'm going to turn some of them into this on Sunday:
From this month's Bon Appetit, Rice Puddings with Caramel Gala Apples.
I'll let you know how it turns out.
