Winner and some felt food just cuz

Trusty ole' Random.org did it again. This time our winner is lucky #5! That would be Katherine Adams, yay Katherine. Her answer was too cute:
"I have my aunt's wedding on the 15th of August in NH. This would be the perfect dress & I would be so excited to wear(and seek council on how to accessorize!) it around my beautiful family that I do not get to see but once a year. I am a follower, and I have D&O Chic on my Google Reader, which everyone should do. Man, I love some cap sleeves!"
Big thank you to Chickdowntown.com for offering this amazing giveaway!

Now, it is no secret that fake food replicas fascinate me. I don't know where this little quirk came came, but nonetheless, it's there and I won't fight it. I came across British Cream Tea on my meanderings through Etsy land yesterday and I'm completely smitten. This shop is special because of the "sculptures" are actually life sized British food replicas.
I didn't realize these little cookies were British because as a child I always ate them in Puerto Rico! Anyway, these are a childhood favorite.
Iced Gems set of 5 Recycled Felt Food Sculptures $18
I don't care how much you want to make fun of me, fish stick are still a favorite. B and I usually eat them with peas too so that we have something green on the plate. How cute is this set?
Fish Fingers, Chips, Peas and Tomato $58
Put bac0n on just about anything and I'm a happy camper. Remember the Elvis donut?
Bacon Butty $18
Another favorite food is smoked salmon. This sculpture is make up of "cream cheese, sliver of smoked salmon and garnished with a single basil leaf." Too funny!
Smoked Salmon Volauvent $14

I'm not sure what I'd do with these felt sculptures if I ever got my paws on them, but they sure do make me happy!

That fake food is fantastic! They have managed to make them look felt but somehow edible at the same time - maybe I'm hungry!! Lucky lady winner of the dress - I think she'll get a lot of happy wear out of it!
