    Those teetering donuts are spectacular, and somehow led to me wanting to play in a ball pit full of donuts.

    That tiny clementine dress is so great!

    Food and art are both so juicy, textural, colorful. A perfect marriage of the precious and the provocative.

  4. I like the imaginative breakfast cereal reef...great idea!
