Pineapple Project~ hmmm...can be quite a nice name for a boutique, no?

My dear friend Marsha recently gave me a lovely present...
(in our circles, she is known as Miss Santa Claus!)
She is always so generous with giftsss...
and also knows how much I lurrrve my kitchen gadgets!
.
It's a Pineapple Slicer from Williams Sonoma!
...plus 2 fresh pineapples! ~SWEET*
Have you guys seen or used this gadget before?
.
Certainly makes cutting & peeling a pineapple so much easier
...and FASTER!
It's quite easy....just some elbow grease, insert the instrument
and push-twist-turn-turn-turn-clockwise and...PULL out!
.
" Voila! "
Perfectly sliced fresh pineapples! ~so JUSSSCYYY !!!
you see the flower arrangement in the back ground here?
.
Well...I rushed to the backyard and cut some
fresh spring flowers...
(promise, I did NOT steal from the neighbor's garden!!!)
.
Nothing goes to waste here in my kitchen~ehem*
So I made a quick flower arrangement...
.
Fresh pineapple VASE!!!
.
errr...you like?!
.
Bubbly Cheers to wonderful & generous friends always!
She told me, "It's better to give than to receive...you know."
~and I replied loudly, "AMEN !!!"
.
" Lurrrrrve...my new toy! Thank you Marsha!! "
~XOXO*

Okay, I want one!
And, I want a brain like yours that comes up with the fabulous idea of using the cored pineapple as a vase!
Brazilliant!

Leah said...

That's very creative... using the base of the pineapple as a vase. I want that pineapple slicer too. Here in my home, we do the traditional way of peeling the pineapple, removing each eye one by one. Yes, I know, it's too taxing.

Enjoy your pineapple, I'm currently enjoying my juice right now. xoxo

Shaddy said...

Your friend even decorated your gift box with a pineapple. How special she is!

It sure does look easy. The slices are luscious looking.

Eco friendly folks would be so proud of the way you used the empty pineapple for something useful.

You go girl! As if you need to be encouraged!

There are things in this world I couldn't even imagine - this slicer is one of them. Anything that minimises work must be good, no? Plus a natural vase - double whammy!

GHA, those things are the BEST. I hate having too many one-trick gadgets, but I would buy one of these in a heartbeat.

Brandi said...

I need a pineapple gadget! I would totally eat pineapple more. And I love that you turned it into a vase. Just BRILLIANT. I need to use all capitals for that because it really is that brilliant.
