i can't rave enough about...

lucette on etsy. check out this adorable crocheted play food that i ordered for one of lucy's christmas gifts. this is my second transaction with lucette and i could not be happier! i gave her a set amount that i wanted to spend ($30 including shipping) and let her go wild. it's evident that she loves making the stuff and her work is top-notch. the only thing i asked for specifically was a pair of hash brown patties (one of lucy's favorite foods---blush) and a few cookies. i also let her know things that we had from our previous order. here's what we got in the mail last night:


a gorgeous, cherry-topped cupcake...
a pair of pears...
half a grapefruit and a breakfast sandwich (egg, ham and cheese on a bun)...
cheeseburger (with all the fixings) and french fries...
the hash browns!
half a pizza...
a peanut butter and jelly sammie (on whole grain bread, of course) with apple & pear slices...
three chocolate chip cookies...


i'm officially addicted. lucy helped open the box yesterday and was having so much fun "nom nom nomming" on the stuff it was hard to pack it up for the holidays. but i did. and then i unpacked it during naptime to play with it myself while taking pictures! can you tell i had a good time?

the only thing i would change about the transaction would be to ask for minimal packaging from the vendor. she places each "meal" in a plastic food container within the cardboard shipping box, which is a cute idea but not too eco-friendly, especially since #6 plastic isn't recyclable here. just a heads up if you're looking to place an order.
