WW111: THE ATTENDANT, EASTER CREME EGGS, and ZOMBIES VS TOYS

Howdy Folks!
What a line up of things I have to share this week.....5 glorious things that I want you to see!!
Here we go:

1) OMG...I WANT TO GO TO THERE!!!! A trip to London England is NOW in order.....I would like to have my latte at 'The Attendant':

Here is what Designboom had to say:

"The urinals are so clean you can eat off of them- an idea turned into reality by pete tomlinson and ben russel who acquired an 1890's Victorian style London lavatory and converted it into a clean contemporary cafe. 'the attendant' features the original installations which have been preserved and thoroughly cleaned (for those of you still unconvinced), retaining the original look and feel of the historical washroom while complying to current day sanitary standards. the urinals, produced by doulton & co, have been converted into a small bar table, with a continuous wooden plank that fits to the contours of the urinal walls, suggesting individual eating areas. the attendant's office was repurposed into a kitchen and the original hand dryer still sits on the wall."



Seriously!! I NEEEED to go to there.

2) My dear sister goes out of her way to make a delicious new dish each time I visit. It is completely unnecessary - but very much appreciated!!!! The winner this time....Cheesecake-Filled Chocolate Easter Egg Cups.......

 6-8 hollow chocolate easter egg shells
150g (about 5oz) cream cheese, softened
30g (about 1/4 cup) icing sugar (confectioners' sugar), sifted
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
125ml (about 1/2 cup) thickened/heavy whipping cream
For the 'yolk': My sister substituted caramel for the traditional jam!!


Using a small serrated knife, carefully remove the tops of the chocolate eggs. Place the eggs in the fridge to keep them chilled while you prepare the cheesecake filling, you can use egg cups or your fridge egg holder Place the cream cheese, icing sugar, lemon juice and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and beat on high until the mixture is smooth and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Set aside and carefully whip the thickened cream in a separate mixing bowl to stiff peaks (watch it closely as thickened cream is very easy to overwhip and split). Using a whisk, gently combine the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until it is smooth. Carefully spoon or pipe the mixture into the prepared chocolate shells. Chill eggs for at least 30 minutes to allow it to set.


Adorable and DEELICIOUS!!!!!!!!! Thanks sister!!!

3) These paintings by Bradley Hart are amazing! He creates pixelated photorealistic pictures by injecting bubble wrap with acrylic paint!!!! COME ON!!! SO SMART!! The process starts with the creation of an “Injection” piece in which Hart uses syringes loaded with paint to fill a developed grid of bubble wrap, with colour.




Upon completion of the injected work, the drippings are removed from the backside of the plastic to reveal an “Impression,” thus becoming a work with its own meaning and story." Bradley's show, titled “Wasted Paint & Created Waste” was at gallery nine5 in New York last month!

4) I love this Vintage Wooden Hotel Key Rack (only $65.00) sold by Clayton Gray Home:

Check out their cool stuff - (if price is no option)!!

5) This is BRILLIANT!!! It is undeniable proof that "The Walking Dead" And "Toy Story" have the exact same plot.......I want you to check it out HERE....but here are a few examples....I don't wanna ruin it for you....it is WELL WORTH reading it on BuzzFeed!!
