ONE CAN GET GIDDY WITH THE WINE-TASTIC EARRINGS BY NEATEATS


The perfect earrings for wine lovers!  You can wear them and almost drink them too:)   They are made by  Rhonda, the owner of https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/neateats where you will find unique, fun and beautiful jewellery. 

Rhonda is incredibly talented, and can create anything miniature with her hands. The items can even be scented so you can find lemon cupcake earrings that smell just like lemon cupcakes! Rhonda takes custom orders too so you can turn your favorite dessert, snack, meal or drink into a miniature work of art...and wear it! NeatEats is based in Ireland but they provide worldwide shipping. 

These glasses of wine earrings (available here) were beautifully and securely packed and the delivery was very speedy. Not only do the glasses of wine look like the real deal, I'm very impressed by the excellent quality.  

We drink a lot of wine here in Sicily as you can see from the pictures below,  so my earrings fit in beautifully with the scenario.

I also have my eyes on NeatEat's bruschetta earrings, which you can see here

It's incredible how real her creations look! For a unique and personalized gift, take a look at NeatEats and you will receive a free surprise handmade gift with every order!

Facciamo cin-cin con le orecchine al vino di NeatEats!  Rhonda, la proprietaria di https://www.etsy.com/shop/NeatEats produce delle deliziosissime creazioni come queste orecchine e la bruschetta che è una vera e propria tentazione, eccola qui

Con ogni ordine riceverete un bel regalino a sorpresa!

RUSTIKO FROM PORTUGAL

I love to spend time in the kitchen baking and cooking so I'm always looking for new ideas and material to use. While searching the web I found a one-stop shop for people like me who love to bake. It's called RUSTIKO  https://www.etsy.com/shop/RUSTIKOcakeDecoratio

RUSTIKO was born to create a bridge between manufacturer and consumer, bringing together products for baking and cake decorations in the same space.  At RUSTIKO you can find cake toppers, kitchenware, cupcake liners and many other things.


I used RUSTIKO cookie cutters to make classic BUTTER COOKIES

Ingredients:

300 g.  flour
150 g.  butter
120 g.  sugar
1          egg
2          egg yolks
a pinch of salt

Place the flour in a bowl and rub in the butter.  Add sugar, eggs and salt and mix to form a ball.  Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Here below  are my RUSTIKO cookie cutters and plunger cutters.

Se, come me, amate pasticciare in cucina, vi consiglio vivamente di visitare questo negozio Etsy in Portogallo  https://www.etsy.com/shop/RUSTIKOcakeDecoratio dove potete trovare tutto ciò che desiderate  per fare dolci, cake decorating e per la cucina in generale.  Queste formette per biscotti che ho usato in questa ricetta, la classica pasta frolla,  sono infatti da RUSTIKO.






I love to make Butter Cookie sandwiches with butter and cherry jam.
