Ice Shot Glasses


I really am experimenting with ice these days.

And I love it!

My freezer is a source of fun, joy and so needed cool refreshment these days.

First I made the Colorful Ice Cubes (you can check out the lovely cuties here).

And because I usually have a hard time letting go of things, I just knew I have to give the freezer a new job of some kind.

The other day I stumbled upon this strange looking thing in a shop.

After I surveyed it for awhile, I thought to myself with rising excitement:

Hm. What could this be…?




To my horror I found out I had said the last two words out loud and rather loudly.

The embarrassment!

Subsequently, I tried my best to look invisible to a couple of shoppers who were eying me up and down, threw the thing into the shopping basket and headed to the counter at sonic speed.

In spite of the embarrassment, I felt like I was the happiest person on the planet … because what I found were ICE SHOT GLASSES MOLDS!

I hadn’t even known they existed!

A very special note: If you’d like to have molds like these then check out this colorful GIVEAWAY!

Anyway, as soon as I came home a craze began.

I gathered two sprigs of my beloved, new planted mint

…some sugar heart decorations…

…and some sugar rice decorations too.

I threw all the stuff into the molds.

Filled the molds with water.

And stuck this magical, interior-creating thing in.

Then I popped the molds into the freezer.

After a couple of hours I got this.

The coolest shot glasses ever.


I got so amazed by these cuties that my fantasy started running wild:

What if I filled the molds with fruit juice?

Or jello?

Or melted chocolate?

The possibilities are endless.

I can’t wait to give all these ideas a try…

How to Revive a Wood Cutting Board

This is my new cutting board.

I bought it some month ago because I loved its color and thought it would perfectly work in my photography.

To my astonishment, it came with instructions.

Hey, I thought, INSTRUCTIONS?


With a wood cutting board?

Come on, don’t be ridiculous.

Just as I was about to throw it away I got an idea: What if… WHAT IF there is something I should have been doing for my cutting boards all that time, and I haven’t, and they’ve been suffering?

What if my life has been one huge mistake?

And then, my cutting boards are all white and faded,  probably from the water I use to rinse them with.

So I read the instructions.

And they were utterly earth-shaking.

They told me to use vegetable oil and pour it onto the surface of the cutting board.

Just some normal, usual kitchen vegetable oil.

And I liked the idea – it somehow goes together well – the wood and the oil – such a cute and natural couple.

I applied the oil onto the wood using a kitchen towel, allowing the oil to soak in.

It was really easy and I could immediately see the difference.

Now I can see how the wood must have been craving this treatment – it looked visibly relieved.

After you’ve treated the whole cutting board to this wonderful spa procedure, you are supposed to wait for about six hours and then, using another kitchen towel, remove the excess oil that did not soak in.

So easy and gorgeous.

Sometimes it really pays off to read instructions.

They might be totally life-changing, or ‘wood-cutting-board-life’ changing.
