BFF#13 : Rook No. 17

Yay! It’s Friday! That means Mexican food for dinner and I get to feature another wonderful blog and blogger. This week’s Blog Feature Friday is the wonderfully creative Jenn and her blog Rook No. 17:
I can’t describe Jenn better than she does herself so I’m going to borrow from her :
CREATIVE DABBLER, LOWBROW JUNKIE AND HIGHBROW HITCHHIKER. Both punk and preppie, sweet and spicy, and irresistibly drawn to shiny, glittery objects. MAKER OF THE CUTE AND THE YUMMY, & PATRON OF THE ODD & OFFBEAT; ERSTWHILE CAKE SCULPTOR AND CHOCOLATIER. Teacher of the pastry arts, student of life, avid reader, collector, and decorator.
And she is all these things and more! I mentioned in my last post that her bunny topiaries were one of the inspirations for my own. Here are hers:
I love how she aged the pots and she shows you how she did it.
I also adore this gorgeous “Friendship Craft” she did to celebrate reconnecting with friends at back to school time last year:

Isn’t that GORGEOUS! And not only beautiful but tasty because she made the biscotti that went with the mugs.
Since I’m obsessed with altering prayer candles, it’s no shock that I think hers are amazing:
She did these for a hostess gift. You should totally invite her to your house. Imagine what she’d bring! She might bring one of her delectable chocolate goodies on a stick:
S’mores on a stick
Chocolate (yes that’s some special chocolate with GOLD STARS!) covered rice krispies treats on a stick
Chocolate Dipped Salted Tamarind Caramels
Jenn does make non-chocolate goodies too but hello, where are you? Smile
Jenn is not only a wonderfully creative artist and master of the foods on a stick ( as well as those that look simply gorgeous on a plate) and she also hosts a weekly link party every Tuesday called “A Little Birdie Told Me”. If you haven’t been before, now you have no reason not to!
It actually runs Tues – Sunday so there’s still time to link up to this week’s! I hope you’ll go visit Jenn. You’ll be glad you did!
