Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Cowboy Hats

Part Western Headwear; part Pageant Crown, these fabulous Pink Cowboy Hats were spotted in one of the many fantastic souvenir shops located in Old Town San Diego, while I was on holiday in California last December (2018). I have no idea why it took me six months to make them a Pink Thing of The Week. As you can see, they are more rain deserving of the honor.

This old-fashioned Claw Foot Enamel Bathtub with Pink Water draining from it onto the floor is actually a sculpture called Down Below (2018), by the artist Sarah Lucas. The ‘water’ is made from rubber acrylic.

How lovely would it be to float off to sleep to the soft, Pearl Pink glow of this super functional, 12″ Illuminated Globe, which is imprinted with a vintage map? Imagine the dreams of far off lands that you might have . . .

Pink Globe Lamp

I just wish had a photo of it in the dark! This awesome Pink Globe runs on an LED light bulb that uses 90% less energy than halogen or incandescent bulbs, and it can also be powered via a USB connection. Part of the Wild Wood collection by Wild & Wolf, this piece would make a great addition to any desk, office, or study, as well as the Bedroom! Available from Amazon at This Link!

Pink Thing of The Day: Piglet Made Of Flowers!

Here at ‘The Gig, we are having a bit of a Spring Fling, as NYC transitions from one cold, wet season to a different but almost equally cold, wet season! Why is spring in this part of the country so freaking cold? I am already over it, as the kids say! As I do whatever I can to keep the fantasy of warmer weather alive in my head, please enjoy this week’s Pink Thing: a sculpture of Winnie The Pooh’s best pal of Piglet made entirely of beautiful pink floral blooms! I took this photo at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida  one hot summer longer ago than I can remember.

Pink Thing of The Day: Pinky’s Space

Pinky’s Space is an adorable little French / Southern Comfort Food restaurant that always has something fantastically Pink and eye-catching displayed in its front window. When I passed by on a recent Saturday afternoon, I had to cross the street to get a snap of this adorable Pink Gorilla and his little Japanese friend, Domo. I want to eat there.

Pinky’s Space is Located at 70 East 1st Street (Just West of First Avenue), East Village New York City

Pink Thing of The Day: Barbie’s Pink Glitter Roaster!

On Saturday March 9th, 2019, I was fortunate to attend the wildly-anticipated Barbie 60th Anniversary Pop-Up Experience; a one-day only celebration of Barbie’s life and legacy marking the occasion of her 60th Birthday, so to speak. The free event, which had non-ticket holders queuing up for a quarter mile along Broadway in SoHo, was set up like an interactive Barbie museum. As much as the push-and-shove of instagramming hoards hindered me from getting any really great photos of this very fun and memorable event, I came away with some choice photo documentation, such the photos you see here. No Barbie Pop Up would be complete without a lifesize recreation of her famous Dream House, and this one did not disappoint.

Pink Glitter Chicken

Not only are Barbie’s kitchen appliances a delightful shade of Shocking Pink, but, apparently, she eats pink food as well. Behold: the Pink Glitter Roasting Chicken hiding in her oven!

It’s great see Barbie Rocking the Pink at 60. You go, girl!

Pink Thing of The Day: Post No Gums Sidewalk Stencil

Do you suppose that the anonymous artist of this Pink Sidewalk Stencil intended their message to be interpreted as a take on a Post No Guns sign, or a warning to refrain from discarding used wads of gum on the path? The Google had no answers. Spotted on the sidewalk at Avenue A near 11th Street.
