Hi Deirdre, that grey dog of yours is so handsome. He looks superb on your sun-kissed artwork. We could do with some sunshine in the UK, thank goodness we went away for some summer sunshine!

That cake looks DE-LISH, I will definitely be looking at that recipe, thanks for the link.

I've got the post-holiday creativity blues. Just can't get my brain into gear at all!

What an awesome sun kissed post. I love the look of the cake, and of course, I love your dog and the art you make from his antics. I think we all wish for more rain and less heat.

I have come over from Inspiration Avenue. I love your post and your piece on the theme. What summer fun and a walk to the lake sounds wonderful. Great piece.
