chocolate love & mini paintings!

let it be known, that i am not really a chocolate junkie….i’m more of a salty gal…chips….popcorn (i believe the little one is comprised of 50 percent popcorn & 50 percent potato!)…that sorta thing. anywho….hubby stumbled upon these chocolates (he’s got the sweet tooth fer sure!)…& i am HOOKED! HOOKED i say!!! Vosges makes all sorts of oddball chocolate bars….like bacon and chocolate (hubby’s fav!) but i am smitten with their Barcelona bar….which is a thin deep chocolate bar with hickory smoked almonds…and lots o salty goodness!!! while these bars are certainly on the pricey side (the cheapest i found was on amazon for 4 for $24!) i feel they are worth it!! especially if it takes you 3 weeks to eat a chocolate bar like it does me! no joke, the last one i had sat around here for about that long…every other nite or so i just broke off a chunk and let it melt in my mouth (of course i had to fend off hubby who proceeded to ask me every other night, “do you know you have a chocolate bar,here?”…he does that whenever there is some sort of foodstuff that i am not getting around to eating quick enough and he’s eyeballing it!….he especially loves to do this with those little pints of ice cream!)anyway, that seemed to help any weird little craving i got! (now mind you, don’t leave a bag of chips laying around this house…i’ll have them consumed in 2 seconds!!) so, if you’re in the mood for some chocolatey goodness that’s a bit different…give this chocolate a test drive! you won’t be disappointed!

on another note: here’s a pic of the weird little mini painting/collage i did the other night:

it’s comprised of some carbothello’s, acrylic paint,doodle (with a fountain pen & noodler’s ink no less!) on watercolor paper, colored in with those sai brush pens i wrote about last entry! i have a few more in the works also….just need to varnish it (like all my other art work i havent gotten around to!) and it’s set! also…now that you’ve gotten to the end of this post…i apologize for my super crummy pics…all i have time for is pics with the iphone…..as it is now, the little one just woke up from her 15 minute nap….yes folks! that’s correct! a big whooping 15 minute nap! pity me now!
