Art. Food. Music. Life.

Well, hello there.  Aren't you looking smashing today!  I hope you all are having a wonderful week.

Last week, I had a blast falling in love with my hometown and I hope you all did too.  If you missed any of the posts, make sure you go back and check them out.  Of course I'm biased, but I'm completely in love with all the wonderful recommendations that I got about great things to do in Denver.  It's going to take me months to try everything out!

Before Denver Week, I had a bunch of beautiful things laid out to show you and of course, in true MEL fashion, I missed a very important one! And of course, also in true MEL fashion, I've been hoarding other beautiful things in my inspiration folders for the past couple weeks as well.  So I'd like to shed some inspiration pounds today, if you don't mind.

First up...

Remember this post?  These collages by Alexis Anne Mackenzie are some of the most interesting pieces of art I've ever seen.  And it is certainly not for a lack of creative genius that I didn't get around to posting more about them until now.  Like I said earlier, it's just the spastic MEL nature.  Anyway, I think they are simply wild and freakishly beautiful.  And I love all the hidden messages.  Can you see them?  (Found here.  Images from here.)

I will definitely be making these for dinner tonight.  They're like a grown up version of steamed broccoli and weird cheese substance from when you were a kid in a cafeteria.  Perfect.  (Image from here.)

And just to bring it all home...

Question:  What happens when you mix art and food?

Answer:  Genius.

Oh and I almost forgot!  This has nothing to do with skeletons or food but it does have to do with my version of art.

Have you noticed the tunes on your right of the page?  Yep, those are from me.  Check them out and let me know what you think.  And thank you so much to everyone who has already passed on such kind and gracious feedback.  It gives me no greater pleasure than to make people happy with music.  Every kind word brings greater meaning to my life.  Thank you.



  1. I love the egg head. The fritters are going to be a problem. Meaning, I feel a food comma coming on.

    1. I know, I think that is my favorite skull too. :) And yeah I hear you about the food coma. XOXO
