A Little Something Edible....

I sure hope that everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving enjoying family and friends! So for the day after, I though I would share some little eats with you...you know...maybe something you could do with leftovers! Take a close look...scenes from the London skyline done by Carl Warner and his team of 5 model makers. 26 different types of fruit and vegetables were used to create this skyline. Three weeks later, this is the outcome. I've always thought broccoli would make a great tree!





I have been absent from the blogging world for a week. ' Tis the season for online sellers to ramp up their shops and after sending a newsletter, I've been swamped to say the least. I've missed visiting y'all but I'm back!

Glad you are back Alicia, I missed you and began to wonder if you might be ill. Good to know it you are busy with important things.

Those pics are amazing. If you stare for a while at each, you discover fruits and veggies you don't see at first glance.

Have a good weekend!

I too was hoping you weren't sick and so glad to hear you are not! The painting bear such a strong resemblance to the actual skyline and then you look closer and have to blink your eyes to see that its fruit and vegetables! Very fascinating to look at. Happy Thanksgiving!

Nancy said...

These pics were so cool. It looked like the "Tower" was made of shredded wheat.

Do what you have to do - it's the season so many of us have other things to accomplish, unfortunately our blogs suffer.

Liss said...

very cool but obviously created by someone that has far to much time on their hands and over catered for dinner.

Bhavesh Chhatbar said...

It's wonderful indeed to know how creative people can be!

Such amazing talent! I wonder if there's a river of Ranch Dressing somewhere...

The only way we could get our young daughter to eat broccoli as a kid was to tell her it was "baby trees." Now its her favorite vegetable!

Here's hoping you're over your post Thanksgiving Turkey Coma!

Hugs!
