  6. That looks like a tooth breaking sandwich there... happy maintenance work to you then Lola, life sometimes needs some maintenance...

  7. Your creativity shines again:)
    I like!
    Good luck with your work.

  8. It's made of chocolate. I've also bought one in Madonna di Campiglio.
    Take care Lola...

  9. I saw a lot of these amazing chocolate tools and other totally un-food-related-and-yet-made-of-chocolate things at the Cioccoshow in Bologna! They're so amazingly realistic. In fact, I think more everyday items should be made out of chocolate. It would make life an altogether tastier challenge.

  10. Ciao friends! Taking a quick break between welding and hammering the final touches to the new website.

    Anonymous~ This is from Monteverde...
    Stratusviatoris~ I agree. The old tools dusted with dry cocoa to mimic the rust are genius. I had a whole tool-kit of these delivered on Valentine's Day. Read about it here.
