A fine line between tacky and kitsch

fruit-flagYes, I made this for tonight’s Fourth of July party. No, I did not come up with it myself. I will admit here, in front of the entire internet that I made this from a facebook recipe. No, not even from Pinterest, just a post on facebook that made me think, “Hey, I should make this and it won’t be tacky at all, it will be sort of kitsch.”

Now if it involved any kind of Jello, that would be tacky, but this… ok, maybe a little.

The Gary eyeroll was a dead giveaway.

Happy 4th!

Famous Fruit

Doesn’t this look yummy? This is my favorite bamboo bowl filled with fruit on my kitchen table. On a good day it looks like this. Usually On a bad day there are black bananas, bruised apples and mushy oranges rotting away with perhaps a few fruit flies dancing around it.

I walked passed the table the other day, admired the way the sunlight was hitting the fruit, grabbed my camera and then noticed that my banana…

had been initialed.

JS. Hmmm, who could that be? It took me about a minute to remember that Danny had a few friends over the day before and one of them mysteriously had these initials. Yes Amy S, that would be YOUR boy.

I believe there was some discussion about being able to sign the fruit and still have it be edible.

17-year-olds are so deep!
