Dessert of the day : Hot chocolate, beer and ‘Snickers-laced’ whipped cream

hotchocBeer.jpg

From article

a shot glass of ice cold dark German beer (Koestritzer) placed beside a tiny espresso cup of hot chocolate topped — if you can believe it — with Snickers-laced whipped cream. This dessert was presented on a small white rectangular platter and was amazing.

A Darkness Visible: Afghanistan by Seamus Murphy

Seamus Murphy began photographing Afghanistan in 1994, and his new book A Darkness Visible: Afghanistan, is a classic on the rise of the Taliban and the impact of U.S. invasion. For two decades, he has worked extensively in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Latin America and most recently America on an ongoing project during what he calls “a nervous and auspicious time.” His accolades include six World Press Photo Awards. Murphy blends humour and irony with deep insight. “Photography,” he says,“is part history, part magic.”

Melting Wall Clocks

clocks.jpg
Melting wall clocks come in three different shapes and are available in any color (not limited to colors shown). They are made from 3/8 inch Baltic birch and hand painted. They are finished with multiple layers of pre-catalyzed lacquer for a durable high gloss surface. Recently I have started offering a stained version of the wall clock that uses wood stain to preserve the wood grain and give the clocks a whole new look and texture. All clocks have a quartz movement that runs on one AA battery (included). Price is $40.00 plus $9.00 for shipping. Allow 2-3 weeks since clocks are made as ordered and require compliant weather to spray lacquer.

Scrabble Keyboard

scrabbleKeyboard.jpg

This keyboard was commissioned by a couple of friends of mine from back east (NJ) who are avid Scrabble players. Most of the keys are made from real Scrabble tiles that were all hand-beveled (truly an exercise in patience/masochism!) and built onto a USB, clicky, mechanical-switch keyboard. This keyboard was going into a Mac environment so I decided to use brushed aluminum for the casing and round all of the corners to keep with the sleek, simple Macintosh styling. Near the end of the build, I decided that the keyboard looked a little too minimalist so I added some silver hardware and a seam to put a slightly industrialized twist on the design.
