If My Food Had a Mascot...

What started out as a joke has totally turned into typical P&C shenanigans.  
Oliver is as big of a part of this blog as Maddie, Roxy + Bullet.  He's sassy, hungry, 
and a teeny bit creepy.

I totally have an excuse to go buy more right?
Break one... come home with 4 more.... I'm certain that's how it works ;)

Besides, I need an excuse to order these:

cb2 oliver martini glasses olive cherry lemon


Do you collect anything?

  1. I adore those plates. I really need to get on buying some. And totally agree that when you break one you can ABSOLUTELY buy 4 more to replace 'em :)

    I'm a big coffee mug collector - so much so that my boyfriend has told me I need to stop because we have no more room in our cabinets...oops! :)

  2. I have two obsessions:

    1. Turtles...but not the live ones. But when I moved west I could only take what would fit in my car so I had to put a lot in storage with my parents. One day, when the Mr & I get a house, I will have my turtles back! And, knowing I don't have much space, it's very hard to pass up a cute turtle figurine.

    2. Vinylmation. They're little Mickey shaped figures that have different designs on them. I think the obsession is they come as a mystery - you don't know which one in the series you're getting till you open the box. Then you're stuck wanting more to try to complete the series. Then they come out with a new version of the series. Every time we go to Disneyland I come home with at least two...sometimes more (the most has been 6...but it was my birthday).

  3. The pics rock my world. Especially Oliver sunbathing. My fav by far. I can justify buying new anything. It's one of my best qualities ;) so I am of course in favor of buying more!

  4. Not creepy at all! I love the little guy. :)

    I don't officially collect anything but I love stars and wine.

  5. This is so amazing I love that little guy. And the photo of your nacho is Billy's ideal nacho. Plain and simple with a jalapeno. We broke one of our plates recently, but have yet to replace it. We probably need to - though knowing us, we probably never will. :)

  8. This post is brilliant: your work really should be classified as some genre of food art (I would honestly pay for a print of the broken plate!)

    I wish I had your level of creativity and innovation. You also have a wicked sense of humour :)

    The first things that popped into my mind when you mentioned collections were Disney movies and books. I kind of secretly want a huge library like Beast gave Belle in Beauty and the Beast :D
