Did you know that February is Grapefruit Month? I had no idea! I'll have to run right down to the grocery store and get me some! My mother had this really cool grapefruit knife that was curved and serrated all around. Made cutting those little wedges so easy. The closest thing I have ever found to that was a grapefruit spoon which was serrated around the end. Didn't work. So if you ever find a grapefruit knife, let me know!
Grapefruit is one of those things that you either love or hate, but after looking through all the cute Etsy grapefruitiness I found, you'll definitely be in the love category.
Get out your grapefruit spoon and dig right in! Put out plenty of napkins because the juice will just run down your chin! This original acrylic painting is named "Morning Grapefruit" and looks so real I can just imagine the juice kind of fizzing as you spoon out the fruit. Visit Art by Meg to see her other paintings in her fruit series, plus lovely landscapes and beautiful butterflies. (And she's a new shop in January!)
Grapefruit is now on your mind so you grab one and slice into it, put bread in the toaster and sit down to a yummy breakfast…
Isn't this cuter than cute?!! I love pretend food and I really like the felt ones! This just looks so good -- but don't dare take a big drink of milk!! Yikes! If you've ever done that, you'll know what I mean! Go to Little Picklepotamus to totally go off your diet (ok ok, the little ones can play with it too...) (By the way, isn't that the cutest shop name? And she's pretty new, too.)
OK, now it's off to work. Still thinking grapefruit, you decide to go ahead and indulge yourself -- have another for lunch! Besides, you have this nifty grapefruit cozy to carry it in and you know everyone at work will love it!
Now here's a great idea -- a Pink Grapefruit Cozy so your grapefruit doesn't get all banged up in your lunch box or picnic basket! What makes this one neat is that it's pink on the inside and a dotty yellow on the outside, just like the real thing. It closes with a zipper and it's stuffed between the layers with fiberfill to cushion your yummy grapefruit in pillowy softness. Go to Stuffed Fruit to see this one and more.
And for dessert, you'll have these yummy grapefruit cookies -- organic to boot! All your best work buddies will be sooo jealous -- maybe, if they're really nice, you'll share.
Jeanettes Patisserie has the most delicious looking goodies in her shop -- your mouth will start watering and your tummy will INSIST that you get some! You really should see the brownies... And all organic and made from scratch by a self-taught pastry chef. Wonderful! Please be sure to visit her new shop!
