Maker Faire in The D – Bacon All Around Us…

The Henry Ford pulled off a winner this weekend with Maker Faire setting up shop in the museum parking lot.  If for nothing else, the life size mousetrap demonstration was worth admission for me, but I digress…

I’m walking through the craft tent and what catches my eye?

BACON! Handmade by Burnt Desserts right here in Michigan.

While I was standing there admiring the rest of her work a Maker Faire representative comes up to the booth and gives her the editor’s choice Blue Ribbon.  I looked over and said “It was for the bacon wasn’t it?”

“It was completely because of the bacon” she replied.

So bacon wins the day once again!

Unfortunately her Etsy shop is closed for the moment as she’s out doing the summer art fair circuit, but you can sign up for email alerts so when the store reopens you can go and get yourself some blue ribbon bacon.

Turn On Your Bacon Light…

Let it shine whereever you go
Let it make a happy glow
For all the world to see

Turn on your bacon light
In the middle of a young boy’s dream
Don’t wake me up too soon
Gonna take a ride across the moon
You and me

Turn on you bacon light now
Turn on you bacon light now

thanks to Mr. Diamond for the inspiration ;-)

Etsy Week – Bacon Cookies…

It’s been a while since I went trollin’ on Etsy for fine, hand crafted, bacon related products.  So long that when I popped “bacon” in the search, I was overwhelmed with new goodness…upon this discovery I quickly assessed that this would become “Etsy Week“.  It works out well thematically as well as “Maker Faire” is back into town this weekend at The Henry Ford.

So let’s explore the creative world of handmade baconcraft!  We start with these scrumptious wonders:

Bacon cookies!!

These are great looking cookies.  Sure they may be a little expensive ($15 for 1/2 dozen), but they’re big (7″ x 2″) and made with love ;-)  Alas, there is no real bacon in these tasty treats, but I am fairly confident you’d still get quite a smile out of the bacon lover in your family if you presented them with a box of these!

Pick up a box today!

Oh, they also make these:

Bacon – check, Star Wars – check, my new favorite bakery – quite possibly ;-)

Created by kungfumonkeyrobot. You can get your own set over at Etsy for just $23.85 *!!  That my friends is a steal!

The Mona Bacon!

Every day since I started this site I wake up and wonder…will today be the day that the river of bacon content runs dry? 

And then I find something like this which only confirms that when it comes to running a bacon blog, I’m gonna be in business for a while!

It’s the Mona Lisa…if she was made of bacon.

Again, the Mona Lisa made of bacon.


This from the mgenomgeno’s shop on Esty.

From TITLE: “Mona Bacon”
MEDIUM: Hi quality, Archival Print
SIZE: 11×14″ ready to frame

Although her expression is often described as enigmatic, the original Mona Lisa was a mere icon before she met bacon.

If you’re an art lover (or simply lover of anything beautiful) and a food lover (or simply a lover of anything tasty)then bacon art is inevitable. It will solve all your problems and satisfy your aesthetic appetite!

Larger sizes of this image are available on request.
Prints are SHIPPED USPS international PRIORITY (2/3 day delivery in US)


I love this country!

Etsy Week – Plushie…

I mean…come on!  Look how cute that is…

Yes, I may look a little suspect being a 40 “something” old man buying a plush bacon toy, but I’ve got an ace up my sleeve.  That card, a soon to be 4 year old!

It’s for my daughter.  Yeah, that’s it…

Grab one for “your kid” today, just $10.00.  Trust me, $10 is nothing when it comes to buying anything stuffed these days.  While you are there, check out the rest of their handmade funness.
