Necklace Contest - Week 18

It's Monday and that means it's time for a new image for the Two Dog Pond Make a Comment ~ Win a Necklace Contest. I can't remember where I snagged this image, and honestly - all I did was intensify the color...

The official contes rules are posted on the side - but are quite simple: You have all week to come up with a clever word/saying/quote for the back side of this image. Something that you would love to wear, and that will appeal to the masses when I take it to art festivals, trunk shows etc. If your clever suggestion is chosen on Friday as the Best Comment of the Week, I will send you a soldered glass pendant.
My sister just sent me this picture. Did you notice that Mickey Rourke was wearing a soldered glass pendant last night at the Oscars? It was a picture of his beloved dog that passed away this week. How cool is that (necklace, not the dead dog part)? I didn't make that one - but I could have if he would have just asked...I'm pretty sure that he paid more than $10 for his - Hey Mickey, next time call on me!!

I just noticed they have on ice skates...have nothing to go with it, but I just noticed and what the heck is she holding...a dog?

I just read Leah's blog and she had three words in it that fit here, I think...she inspired this:

Two Dog Pond said...

Hey Mama K - that's a giant bouquet of dark red roses. Looks like she won the skating contest. I'm pretty sure the other two were held back by their giant tail feathers.

Oh...I can see that it is dark red roses now that you said it. I kept seeing a dog and that just CONFUSED me! That title I gve it of GYPSY ROSES is more fitting than I even knew!! LOL

This is a very interesting image.

I think you nailed it as to why the other two did not get the prize...funny.

I never noticed that necklace he had on. But I did hear the interview with Barbara Walters prior to the show. That dog was his only friend through all of those troubled times. At times, it seemed that the dog was the only one who loved him.

Oh, I love the Partly Strange, Rosemary and Thyme entry.

I did see this on him and wondered if you made this for him.

Correction on my entry from yesterday, per my daughter's request...

Rather than "We're too sexy for our skates", let's go with "I'm too sexy for my skates."

I saw an interview with Mickey and I guess he was really,really close to that dog.
I bought a soldered necklace at an antique store this past week....it was $10! Had my initial on one side, and a little bird on the other. Really cute!
No ideas for the quote contest this week....the creative juices are just not flowing today! :)
