2 of My Favorite Things

Is this summer flying by or what? I just returned home from a fantastic 2 week vacation. Friends & relatives went out of their way to make me feel welcome & COMPLETELY SPOILED! Hard to put my feet back on the ground but my studio looked better than ever when I returned home. I promptly unpacked, did "beaucoup" loads of laundry & set about reaquainting myself with the studio. Much to do, much to do. I began to work on some brochures that I had been {{finding every reason in the book}} putting off. Searching the internet for inspiration & also because I was internet free for 2 weeks (don't tell anyone but what a joy that was...i hope you can have the opportunity to try it sometime - breifly) I laughed out loud when I came across this:

I call it: Pierre on a Stick.

My very first Pink Saturday post was about my favorite candy obsession...cotton candy. I found my two fav's wrapped (or is that warped) into one. I swear our pom Pierre posed for this shot.

Hmmm, looks like he's giving me the evil eye. Guess he doesn't see the humor...

I hope all of you are celebrating this summer with friends & family. Wishing you the ability to be able to "detach" from all electronic accoutrements ...even if it's just for a moment. Most of all, I hope you are finding the silly laugh out loud moments all around you.

Merci to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hosting such a Grand Fete! Be sure to visit her blog along with all the other PINK participants. Be sure to leave comments...we love 'em!


  1. So love the Pom ... mine was the most beautiful white beauty ever, & such a sweetie. Don't you just LOVE them?!

    Have a wonderful holiday weekend, my friend ~
    TTFN ~

  2. Just too cute! We lived in Lexington and Versailles for many years - got our retired racing greyhound (now over the bridge) there and loved the area. Very doggie friendly.

  3. Happy Pink Saturday Niki Sweetie...
    I can see you have had a wonderful time on vacation and sometimes, we come back so strong and feeling so refreshed we just create, create, create. Sounds like that is what you are about to do/or are doing by now.

    Love the Pierre on a stick. How cute is that. Yes he does appear to be giving you the evil eye, as to not even think about it. He is so darn cute sweetie.

    Have a wonderful and safe 4th of July. Many hugs from Phoenix, Love, Sherry

  4. Funny ha ha! Love funny dog photo! Happy pink !

  5. OMG. love the pink cotton candy pom...Pinkim

  6. I love love love M Pierre On A Stick - what a brilliant photograph! I had to do a double-take to see it was a dog face on the cotton candy - I actually thought it was a dog with overenthusiastic brushing at first glance (like some of those Pomeranians). Just brilliant - maybe this image should be your email button, lol.

    Thanks so much for visiting me, have a great 4th tomorrow, and Happy Pink Saturday (yes, I know it's Sunday - sorry - was out teaching 2 classes yesterday, got home after 7pm and was too whacked to even turn the computer on!)

  7. LOL...the cotton candy is adorable. It's hard to get away but when you do it's wonderful. You get a whole new perspective on life and come home with all kinds of fresh ideas. HPS

  8. That Pierre on a stick is too funny! So glad you had a great trip and internet free for two sounds like heaven :)

  9. I am so glad you had a great get away.....I could use one!! :) Love the cotton candy pooch!! :)

    Hope you had a wonderful 4th and a terrific PS!!


    PS Now get back to work in that studio! ;)

  10. I want a pink cotton candy doggy!
