Coney Island Brie!

So the fabulous grocery store I manage has a gourmet cheese bar. My cheese Chick likes to make these little baked bries. She wraps them up in pastry dough and decorates them, but alas she leaves behind a carnage of little balsa wood brie boxes. I though to myself, "Is there anyway I can NOT take these home and make something out of them?" The answer is "NO"! So when thinking of something to make I thought of the recent Project Runway challenge where the designers had to go to Coney Island to use the Circus as their theme.  So I took a little trip to Coney Island myself and dreamed up this little piece that can hang on a wall, cabinet, or door for a great little summertime fun!

Thanks for looking, I am working on a Jane Austen one now of course. I am thinking of making a starter kit to sell in my etsy shop for these. Luckily I have a somewhat unlimited supply!


  1. OMG that is amazing! I think you are onto something here too...make lots more and get them up on etsy :)

  2. thanks Shanna and allie, I love love making them, so I think I will make some to sell in my shop.


  3. Too darn cute, denise - I could enjoy winning something like this!

  4. You are so clever! It's gorgeous!
