Good Eating and Drinking Habits from Artist Jill Seale

Photo credit: Jill Seale

There are times when we could all use some divine intervention in the kitchen. Thanks to Jill Seale, we can count our blessings.

A few years ago, Seale designed "Nun for the Road," a group of sassy sisters featured on dessert plates, coasters, napkins, cheese spreaders, hors d' oeuvre trays, notepads, magnets,
aprons and tote bags. You can find them in houseware stores and on the internet.

This holy order includes sisters
Mary Culinary, Mary Mesquite (with her spatula, in front of a smoking barbecue grill), and other rebellious ones (clenching their cocktails as if they were heaven-sent) such as Mary Martini, Mary Margarita, Mary Mai Tai, Mary Merlot, Mary Mimosa, Mary Manhattan and Mary Cosmopolitan.

There's even a Sister Mary Immaculate dish towel and
soap dispenser!

Oh yeah, let's not forget the
Sister Mary Menopause mug. What a great gift for the mom whose insults and hot flashes are neverending.

And now, Seale has a whole line of
napkins including "Ale Mary" (a nun raising her beer mug with delight) and "Ninety Nun Bottles of Beer on the Wall."

Even if you're not religious, you've got to laugh.

I didn't include any photos because Seale doesn't want anyone to electronically copy them. That's okay, though, because you can view them right on her
website.

Also, you can buy some of her products
here.

I have the coaster set, and I absolutely love it.

If you buy the dessert plates, you may wonder whether glomming a huge piece of Devil's Food Cake is just as sinful when served on the image of Sister Mary Immaculate. You'll just have to examine your own conscience.

This Shoe is for You: The Real Meaning of the Glass Slipper

One afternoon while at the dollar store, after trudging past the knockoff Oreos, bins of expired mascara and leftover Christmas decorations, I somehow found the party aisle. There's something about paper hats, kazoos, confetti and festive drink napkins that turns me into a giddy five-year-old and makes my troubles melt like icing on a hot cake.

Then I turned around, and there it was: the huge display of wedding stuff: everything from bobble-head brides and grooms to polyester rose bouquets and plastic toasting goblets--a smorgasbord of cheap inanimate objects. Yuck.

And that was when, still in the wedding section, I discovered a pack of plastic glass slippers. I doubt they were intended for people like me to place them around my apartment, wishing that someday, like Cinderella, the right guy would slip the right shoe on my foot.

Ever feel like that? Ever get trapped in the fantasy of a fairy tale, wishing and hoping and dreaming?
Well, I did. And I decided to buy two…

Hold Me, Thrill Me, TEAse Me

While walking near Grand Central, I spotted this mannequin, clothed in Lipton tea bags. Astonishing, eh? All I 'gotta do is tell everyone in Midtown there's free tea and she'll be nude. Eek!

Well, that's the blogworthy photo of the day. Just thought you'd be interested.
