Green Apples

13 Mar

Green ApplesOriginally uploaded by CleverGirlBekEvery time I see these my mouth starts to water… I bought a pound of green apples yesterday (washed and sliced and ready to go) because of these earrings… Even though the color is a bit deeper, more of a lime, the contrast reminds me of freshly sliced apples…Yum. Fresh and springy and you can find them in my shop

Be clever.

Be clever.Originally uploaded by CleverGirlBekNew boxes…. Gocco’d them last night… The faux bois came out pretty spotty on the words “be clever”… I wound up writing over the words with a pen to match the imprint on the side of the box with my web addy and eureka…. worked….A little different from my last ones, but if you know me then you know that my obsession with the representation of natural things using manmade materials runs deep…. So I have faux bois. fake paper grass, and my packages come lovingly sealed with a plastic grass sticker…. Good stuff.

Love, Norman Love.

Oh Norman Love…Why do you and your mad confection laboratory have to be on the way home from hubby’s office?

and the strawberries taste like strawberries!

You think of the most lovely combinations that fill me with childlike joy and giddiness and grown-up decadence all at the same time… You are a mad genius. Your confection creating crew is beyond fabulous.

Willy Wonka can truly retire now….

Oh and for those of you that aren’t familiar with Mr. Love and his crew and their genius creations and think “eh- I’ll just give Godiva because everyone knows the name” think again… Norman Love is the genius behind the “g” collection….

and

(from Godiva’s press section):
Always an innovator in the industry, Love is the former Executive Pastry Chef for Ritz Carlton Hotels. His passion for sweets has landed him on Chocolatier Magazine’s Top 10 Pastry Chef’s list and USA Today’s Top 10 Artisan Chocolatier’s list.

These are the best.

Yummy.
Exquisite.
Perfect.
