A Dress Made From Taco Bell Wrappers

taco-bell-dress

You’ve eaten nothing but late-night Chalupas and Taco Supremes for months. So, what to do with all of those Taco Bell wrappers? If you’re as creative and into Tex-Mex as artist Olivia Mears is, you make a Taco Bell Wrapper Dress, of course.

The dress is made from about 130 wrappers, with sauce pack accents. All of the materials were unused of course. So, please do not make clothing with your chalupa-stained wrappers, as previously suggested.

Michelangelo’s Grocery List

Michaelangelos-Grocery-List1

Even Michelangelo, one of the greatest minds in recorded history, was capable of forgetting to pick up eggs and laundry detergent. Brought to us by Casa Buonarroti in Florence, Italy — this sample, from their Michelangelo collection, shows a grocery list illustrated by the artist himself.

Drawn for his servant who was illiterate, the list calls for a herring, tortelli, two fennel soups, four anchovies and ‘a small quarter of a rough wine.’ Hopefully he gave him all the coupons too.
