Ice Cream Social!

Hey everyone! Summer is all about ice cream! I have a hodgepodge of items for the Ice Cream Social hosted by Suzy at Kitchen Bouquet. I'm also happy to be joining Pink Saturday and Summer Sundays!
Piggy ice cream scoops: 





Sprinkles:
Sugarcraft.com has these fun pig sprinkles, not to mention anything else you might want related to confections, decorations and candy!

True story:
My neighbor across the street has a sweet big stocky English bull dog, he is overly friendly but doesn't listen very well in his enthusiasm... The other day as I went for a walk he came running into the street to see me as his owners yelled for him. Their daughter was visiting and all she said was "George want some ice cream?". I never saw a big dog do an on-the-dime turn like that! True ballet, he was off like a shot! Ah, the power of ice cream!

Art:
I really didn't expect to find any pigs eating ice cream pictures, but Google is a beautiful thing! I'm sharing this cute illustration as posted by http://paigekeiser.blogspot.com/2006/02/ice-cream-pig.html.
Have a happy day and enjoy your ice cream!
PS-I'm now the proud owner of a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker-can't wait to copy some recipes!!!

  15. Just had to come over when I saw the name of your blog on another site! I love the pig cupcakes. I hope my granddaughter is going to be in the PINK PIGS classroom at Pre-K this year (which is where my grandson was when he was there). If she is I will definitely make her class these cupcakes!!! I am relatively new to blogging and still have much to learn and figure out (mostly what to write about!) so hope you will visit me from time to time. I will come back and visit you too as I already like what I see! Have a great weekend!

    It's so nice to meet you (thanks for stopping by artfully graced) and to read your blog. I am still laughing over your story of the dog. I can just picture it... The pig scoops are delightful. I'll have to find one for my pig-collecting son.

  40. How fun are your ice cream scoops. SO Cute!

  41. I will never forget the doggie ice cream story! I don't think my dog would coming running if I called her during an enthusiastic moment, but she sure knows when I am pulling the ice cream container out of the freezer. She could be in a deep sleep, and would come running to the kitchen if she heard me dishing out ice cream. Love the piggies!
