Knowing my love of ice cream, my daughter bought me a dress full of ice cream and an ice cream bag!

Visto che adoro il gelato,  per il mio compleanno mia figlia mi ha regalato un vestito di gelato e una borsa al gelato!

I stole this dress from my daughter.  You can see her wearing it here

It's  by Carousel

The sun is very strong here in Sicily so I went around with my cute Japanese parasol.

Notice my hamburger earrings:)

Questo vestito l'ho rubato a mia figlia. Eccola che lo indossa 

Il vestito è di Carousel

Avete notato le mie orecchine "à l' hamburger"? :)

I think I gained 5 lbs. just LOOKING at Kornelia's delicious food miniatures 

The ice cream earrings looked irresistible, the cupcake necklace so tempting, and the Nutella toast simply out of this world!

Kornelia puts her heart and soul in her creations, it's easy to understand that she really has a passion and talent for making food miniatures, they look so true to life one can literally almost eat them!

You can find InspirationsbyNell on Facebook too

Kornelia is in Scotland but ships worldwide and also takes custom orders.

I could eat them all but I settled for two. Can you guess what's inside these  little bags?

Surprise!  A doughnut necklace and cupcake earrings!!!

Can't you just taste them through the screen? 

They certainly are made with love and passion!  Look at the smile on my can tell how happy I am wearing them.  Who wouldn't be smiling going around wearing cupcakes and doughnuts?

I couldn't resist...I took a big bite!:)

Ho trovato un delizioso negozio di dolci in miniatura gestito da Kornelia, un'appassionata di creazioni di  piccoli gioielli dolci. La trovate  qui  e anche su 

Veramente credo di aver messo su 10 chili solo guardando le sue squisite creazioni. Si vede proprio che Kornelia mette anima e corpo nel suo lavoro!  Si trova in Scozia ma spedisce in tutto il mondo, quindi ordinate pure tranquille. Potete anche fare ordini su misura.

The perfect earrings for wine lovers!  You can wear them and almost drink them too:)   They are made by  Rhonda, the owner of where you will find unique, fun and beautiful jewellery. 

Rhonda is incredibly talented, and can create anything miniature with her hands. The items can even be scented so you can find lemon cupcake earrings that smell just like lemon cupcakes! Rhonda takes custom orders too so you can turn your favorite dessert, snack, meal or drink into a miniature work of art...and wear it! NeatEats is based in Ireland but they provide worldwide shipping. 

These glasses of wine earrings (available here) were beautifully and securely packed and the delivery was very speedy. Not only do the glasses of wine look like the real deal, I'm very impressed by the excellent quality.  

We drink a lot of wine here in Sicily as you can see from the pictures below,  so my earrings fit in beautifully with the scenario.

I also have my eyes on NeatEat's bruschetta earrings, which you can see here
