the apple

I've invented a new game and it's called

"You'll Never Guess How Much William Sonoma Is Selling That For!!!"

It's great fun.

But mostly it's me waving the latest catalogue in his annoyed face during "the greatest football game of the season" (there are quite a few of these I've learned) and him guessing a random amount, and me shouting back the the crazed price, and him going "that's insane"!

Oh the fun.

Now I must say that I do adore William Sonoma. Every time I spot their cute little pineapple my heart skips a beat and everything that I've purchased from them holds up like no other.

But it is a hoot to see the prices charged for some of their things and this one I'm still bewildered at.

The Halloween Apple. William Sonoma I love you dearly, but I'm not paying $22.50 for ONE apple. I'm sure it's delicious and beautiful and all, but you see I just don't feel right about paying $22.50 plus the $6 for shipping.

That's like 27 hamburgers at Mickey D's.

When my boy's wake up from their naps (any minute) we're making candy apples! Earlier today I googled candy apples and found some similar gourmet candy apples! And my response was yeah, OKAY, I could so make those!:)
