Sweets

Food jewelry both fascinates me and creeps me out a little bit. Part of me thinks it's cute because who doesn't think cupcakes are adorable? But then there's that whole Mariah Carey "I'm a woman who refuses to act like a grown up and expresses that through very expensive yet juvenile jewelry" aspect to it. Know what I mean?
Anyhow, my ma (hi mom!) called the other day with a website she had read about in the paper that had itty bitty, reasonably priced foodstuffs for jewelry. Very wearable and cute. So wearable, in fact, that they get today's blog space. Without further ado, all from Pnut Jewelry...

Sterling Silver Cupcake Ring with Yellow Sapphire Sprinkles by Pnut Jewelry, $285



Me and You Popsicle Charm by Pnut Jewelry, $98 (I love this one.)




Cone Swirl with Wings Bangle, $199





Sterling Silver Ice Cream Scoop with multi gemstone sprinkles, $230


I usually don't post all from one site, but this place totally won me over for two reasons:
1. My best job ever was in an ice cream shop. The Dairy Queen in town had closed, so this guy, Mark, bought the shop and changed nothing about it. He opened it up as a pretend Dairy Queen (it might have been called Dairy Barn, but I can't quite recall) and really, if Dairy Queen had been a little more prtective of their brand image, they would have sued. First, my best friend got a job there and Mark ended up hiring a whole group of us, so we were always on shift with our friends. He was also never there. The dude was shady like you wouldn't believe, showing up drunk and taking handfuls of money from the register, but it was his place so who were we to say anything? I remember creating these amazing ice cream concoctions and having whipped cream fights and all of my meals coming from that store. Ah, the metabolism of a 17 year old.




Weezer Necklace, $30
2. For a very long time, I was a diehard Weezer fan and often wished to be of the Asian persuasion (good band name?) so I could have a chance with lead singer Rivers Cuomo, who had a well reported attraction to/ fetish for the Asian ladies (scroll down to "Personal Life"). That never happened. Then he got married and their records weren't as interesting anymore. But I still love them and get a little electric thrill when I see that W.


Speaking of cupcakes, the BF and I finally found an apartment! I often think of cupcakes when I think of our new place because we are right down the street from Martha's Bakery, which makes very Magnolia-like (but a little bit better, in my opinion), ones. I'm actually embarrassed that such a big draw for us (me) to the area was all the great food. We met with about five realtors, saw 20 apartments and after much deliberation, we went with the one that offers this view when you walk out of the front door (excuse the crappy camera phone picture):
(Upper East Side of Manhattan, across the river, and the Triboro bridge all lit up. Taken from the edge of Astoria Park.)

Agreed that these are the exception to the disturbing aspect of overly child-like accessories. I started reading and was all, 'oh, she's right!.'

And congrats on the apartment. That view looks fantastic.

Congrats on a new place! However, I hate ice cream and cupcakes I can't actually eat. That's not art, that's just mean.

Congrats on your new place!

Sharon said...

Ooh, you're moving to Astoria? How neat! Congrats!

I, too, spent many many hours wishing I was of Asian persuasion for Mr. R. Cuomo. Oh, emo fantasies!

The sweets jewelry is really awesome, I love how high-end they are.
And thanks for your lovely comment! The dress is actually an eBay find and a cheap one at that--no one else bid!

I like that blingy icecream cone!!!
I'm not that grown up I guess....

I think food is always somewhere in our best memories. When we die, what we've eaten are the only things we take with us...hmmm...better work on packing better.

My faves are the Weezer necklace and the ice cream one. My friend who went to Harvard used to try to stalk Rivers Cuomo all around campus...it was strange.
