Vintage Salt Lake City Postcard

This vintage post card of Salt Lake City, Utah has a tiny pouch of sand from the Great Salt Lake attached. Neat, huh? I’d never seen anything like that before.

Popin’ Cookin’! Japanese Molecular Candy

Photo from Jeni Eats, she has a full review here.

Over drinks the other night, some friends were reminiscing about these Japanese candy powders that you mix to form different textures. I’d never heard of them, but apparently one powder makes sushi rice, another the seaweed, etcetera, so you can roll sushi candies.

You can buy Japanese Molecular Candies online to make tiny sushi, cakes, donuts, and most importantly pizzas. Tiny candy pizzas!

Have you tried these? I ordered some to play with.

Kids and Vegetarianism

This video is pretty touching. Do any of you relate to this kid too? I remember finding meat so upsetting in childhood that I would have trouble finishing meals. His mom’s response feels so evolved compared to the response I got, which was more like, “Eat it.”

Balloon Animal Sculptures

Check out these balloon sculptures by Masayoshi Matsumoto. Until moments ago, I was feeling so advanced for upgrading my skills from “snake” to “wiener dog.”

I bought this ordinary cabinet last week, because it is secretly …

a Tardis desk. If Superman lived his daily life as a superhero, this would be the desk where he lived out his true identity as Clark Kent. (And other nerdy references, etcetera, etcetera, Star Wars analogy).

Anyway, secret writing! No one can know.

Solar System Lollipops

Hank would love these Solar System Lollipops from the Colossal Shop. Amazon also has Galaxy Lollipops for about a buck a pop, which would be great for a space-themed party.
