4 Faves – Friends Version 9.0

Posted by lori . 2 Comments


August’s 4 Faves all come from my friends.  Check out what they like.

This week’s favorites come from my friends, Amy…she has the first three; and Carrie (Tales and Tails)…she has the last one.

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

What if you could taste the emotions of whoever prepared your food.  What would you do with the insight this would give you into people’s secret emotions?  That’s the premise behind The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender, a story that Amy found fascinating.

Soaker Coats

Soaker coats are handy dry or wet.  Used dry, a soaker coat is great after a bath or a swim.  Used wet, a soaker coat can help keep your doggie cool on hot days outdoors.  The soaker coat pictured above is from Chilly Dogs.

Chilly Dogs

Speaking of Chilly Dogs…Amy loves Chilly Dogs coats.  Why?  They offer an “Easy On, Easy Off” design; the coats cover your dog’s chest; and the fit is superior because they’re made to the exact measurements of your dog and sport an adjustable buckle system that allows you to securely fasten the coat around your pup’s body.  Plus, look how attractive they are.  The lovely model…that’s Shadow, one of Amy’s former foster dogs.

Vintage Bikes

A favorite of Carrie’s…vintage bikes.  Want to see more items with the vintage bike motif (or any other motif you can think of), check out Etsy.  The stunning model in the picture below…that’s Bunny.

    Oooooo! I think I need to find that Keep Calm and Ride On sign. Every time that darned orange assignment comes up for the Daily Shoot, I’m stuck!

    I like Chilly Dogs coats, too, and the model is adorable!

    I’ve heard of that book, and I admit to some curiosity about it.

      When you first suggested vintage bikes, I thought a treasury list would be a fun way to present it…but, I never took the time to figure out how to do one. That assignment from “Make Art a Part” was very helpful.

      The cute model for Chilly Dogs, Shadow, was the sweetest little girl. After she got adopted, I was kicking myself for letting her get away. I told myself if I ever ran across another sweetie like her, I would jump on it. When Amy got Nikki as a foster, we hemmed and hawed about getting a third dog. I’m surprised Nikki didn’t get adopted. Amy had her for about five months, which is way more time than she should have had such a good dog. Thankfully, we wised up and got her. I think she was waiting on us.

      Amy gave me The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake to read. Unfortunately, I have quite a few ahead of it, but I am intrigued. I finished The Snowman and like it.
