I Celery Heart You

I stand by my motto.

Food is art

Genius right? Thanks to Maureen for the absolutely brilliant idea to use a stalk of celery as a stamp.  I upped the cheese factor by using this freshly veggie-stamped notecard to write P a love letter for our anniversary. Gah!  Who am I?  Though it was worth it to see his face =)

Obviously I soon tired of celery and glanced around the room for something else to paint.  I spotted C-Dawg.  Poor little guy... you would have thought he'd been through enough by now. But no! I not only threw him in some salsa to munch on, but also plucked a few leaves to paint.


I don't think I'll ever stop playing with my food =)

Pin It!

  15. I'd never stop playing with my food either if I played with it like this. Love it! My version of playing with my food involves swirling it around my plate, tossing peas at people, and making mountains and valleys out of mashed potatoes ;)

  20. I LOVE my celery flowers! I have put their photos on my blog before... when I was making this afternoon's juice, I left the celery flower on the counter (to take a photo!) and Jason was helping clean the juicer parts, saw it and threw it in the garbage! :D  I can take a photo of another one tomorrow...

  22. That is super cute! You are way more creative than I will ever be! I think if I told my husband I made his card with celery he'd think I was nuts.

  23. Your celery art is to cute! If I can ever tear myself away from eating celery, I'll do this... I suppose I could just cut off the painted ends though!

  30. What a great idea!  I could totally see using food as art stamps for cloth napkins and place cards for a dinner party in your new casa :)

  31. I've seen the celery art on Pinterest and am fascinated by it (previously I've only stamped with apple).
    The cards look very cool. 
    Keep us posted if you paint with more :)

    So awesome! I just thought of the apple stamps this morning when I was writing my post. You know, when you cut them in 1/2 and it makes a star? So pretty when you add paint to it!

  42. I think we have to find/make art out of our everyday lives to fully enjoy it!  For me, it's about finding the beauty in things that helps me to make it through the day/week - or at least makes it more enjoyable!
