PINK Francis Francis X8 iperEspresso Machine



This is my X8 machine  that uses the new revolutionary iperEspresso Method to prepare espresso. Hyper Espresso is a unique and innovative two-stage process. The first is hyper infusion. This is followed by emulsion, resulting in a thick, velvety crema and full-bodied espresso.
That being said, my kitchen is Shabby Chic style, so this machine in black wasn't going to cut it.I do love the curvy body style .A little sanding and taping off  made her into the curvyliscious sexy machine she is today.



Aside from being a fully functional espresso maker, the Francis Francis X8 iperEspresso Machine is a delight to look at and display on your kitchen counter.  The stylish new retro design of the machine lends it a chic appeal, all the while offering you some of the best at-home brewing of espresso that can be done.  Its durable ABS black plastic body and convenient 22-ounce water tank are just the beginning of what makes the X8 so beautiful.  Heads will turn and your friends and family will want to know where you got your incredible espresso maker when you own an X8.  So much more than just a single serve espresso brewer, you can do it all without setting foot outside.  No need to have a big flashy espresso machine that only a barista knows how to use.  With the Francis Francis X8 iperEspresso machine, you can have amazing coffee shoppe quality in the comfort of your own home.

                                                    I LOVE HER!!!!

Siamese Cat Lamp Light


This is my 

Vintage Retro 1954 CLAES Double Siamese Cats TV Television Lamp Light 


I absolutely love it, but I can't believe how much they sell for these days. I think I paid 10 bucks for it about 20 years ago. They manufactured these back in the 1950's as part of a 10 year span of mass marketing Televisions to the public. These T.V. Lamps began a craze when people thought that watching a bright Television in a dark room would damage their eyesight. These vintage TV lamps are so iconic for this time period, everyone wanted one and you were ever so cool if your family had one.

It is a sculpted  raspberry filled champagne flavored cake covered in  Italian butter cream icing as well as fondant.  I piped all the raised detail with a royal icing, then meticulously hand painted  the entire cake with pearl, luster dust, and 24 k gold edible finish.This masterpiece is truly fit for a Queen!





 Adorned with Crystals, hand painted gum paste flowers, and hydrangeas.....

Gave it a good cleaning with windex

Lightly sanded it

Spray painted it all white, then on the edges I used a light pink for shading.

The next 4 steps pictured are where I printed some roses on my computer onto regular old paper, and cut them out. I then decoupaged them using Mod Podge.






And here it is all completed. I painted some leaves around the roses as well as some gold dots.
