This small toy figure of a Pig in a Pink Party Hat and matching festive outfit (or simply, Party Pig, as I enjoy calling him) was gifted to me by a friend on my most recent birthday. Currently, he hangs out in my living room near the stereo. A little Googling reveals that he is part of a 5-piece set of animal mini figures  called Party Farm from  Bullseye’s Playground. The set was originally sold by Target in November of 2021 and is now (understandably) sold out, but you can still find it for sale on eBay and other similar sites.

Looking now at this Baby-Pink Toy Pickup Truck whose bed is filled with a cargo of pastel-colored eggs and tulips, it just seems so obvious that it should have been the week’s Pink Thing on Good Friday, but I wasn’t playing close enough attention. So, my bad — you get it two weeks later. Still in plenty of time for spring!

Pink Thing Of The Day: Pink Icon By Nicolette Benard

This very fun mixed media sculpture– which re-imagines Barbie‘s head and torso engulfed in a pink, donut-like soft puff, while she sports hot pink swim fins on her feet — is part of the Icons series by artist Nicolette Benard. Nicolette is a Netherlands-based visual artist and jewelry designer represented by Chiefs and Spirits Gallery — in whose booth at the Spring Affordable Art Fair we spotted this excellent work ($1250 each). Wouldn’t it be cool if Mattel decided to make a series of Art Barbies and hired Nicolette to design them based on her Icons series? I think so! See more Icons on her website, at This Link!

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Spatulas Installation

With the booming popularity of Instagram-Influencer-Selfie-Farms such as the Museum of Illusions and Immersive Van Gogh taking up space everywhere, it’s expected that folks have forgotten completely about The Egg House, which was open from April through June of 2018 in NYC. The Egg House was an immersive, fantasy pop-up space that took visitors inside the home of an anthropomorphic Egg named Ellis.  It was in Ellis’s kitchen that one would encounter rows and rows of Millennial Pink Spatulas (and the occasional wire whisk) suspended from the ceiling.
