be still my heart

Yet another chocolate preview: Megan & Sarah of Treeo Design put up a little page featuring the boxes—click and revel in the recycled paper gorgeousness!

There is no reason to post it here except that I am just dying to share the prettiness with everyone. 12,000 of them will be delivered tomorrow, I am trembling with excitement (and my bank account is just trembling…). I know it’s silly how I am so obsessed with everything associated with this project, but it represents pretty much a year of my life all finally coming to fruition this month, so please excuse my gushiness for the next few weeks.

ALSO! My sweet friend Maresa made these porcelain half-pint containers, and I am absolutely in love with them.

I’m trying to convince her to start marketing them for real, wouldn’t you buy one to put your farm-fresh cherry tomatoes and things into? Here they are holding Raspberries de Pizan, little raspberry chocolates with balsamic vinegar and pepper. I’ll tell you a secret though–these are fakes, they are just hollow shells. I got really tired at this point in the photo shoot and started faking things. But still, so pretty!

    If Maresa makes more of those, I will buy them. If she doesn’t, I will be FORCED TO STEAL because they are teh awesome. I’m serious–the first time I saw that photo I thought “where did lagusta get that!! [drool].”

    AND the boxes are gorgeous. The phrase “shrinkwrapped in 50’s” will be forever part of my mental landscape.
