pamper me

Illustration by pve design for "Cholo"

The life of a coquette would be the life for me.  I always remark to many that "I shall be returning as a dog in my next life" - for they truly know how to live.  Meet "Cholo" - lounging on this divine nail-head trimmed, white leather clad settee.   Cholo is posing for a glamour shot and living the life of luxury.

Illustration of "Cholo" in the dressing room by pve design

Back to the dressing room for a little "primping", for an all day photo session.  Take a look at how happy "Cholo" is seated on this wild leopard chair, fit for any beast.  A dressing room with lots of wonderful props to play dress-up and pamper one  prior to going out for a walk on the town.
Interiors and coquettishness are Courtesy of Visual Vamp who has a delightful blog and I wanted to give thanks for a wonderful post last week on pve design.  
Visit and pamper your inner visual vamp.  Get your flirt on!

Oh yes a book of pups would be grrrreat! Miss C is one very lucky pup!!

Our UPS man and friends tell me all the time how they want to come back as one of my dogs. LOL...
Our Kelly (Lakeland terrier) sleeps on our bed at the foot of the bed (or between us at times)on her own comforter! We even have a tiny pillow hanging on the bed post that says "princess".

As always thank you for sharing your beautiful illustration!

An illustrated book of dogs living the life of Riley! Sign my three dogs right up!

Really, I love the dog illustrations you do best of all.

Thanks for brightening the day.

Cholo is too cute! Our cat is very pampered, too. :)

Visual Vamp said...

Aw shucks!!!
Thank you so much for featuring my little boy. You captured him (and his home) to perfection!
And please, you must do a book!!!
Have you ever seen a book of photos called The English Dog At Home?
Well I think you should really do a book of Dogs in Decor!!!
And you are very welcome anytime on my blog, or in Cholo's home :-)
PS To Joyce, Miss C is Mr. C! Cholo is Spanish slang for "liitle punk".

Lucky pets one and all-loved by their companions and beautifully rendered by an artist who makes the viewer want to crawl into the picture. My two rescue dogs, Liberty (best known as Libby) and Lady live the lives of pampered princesses!

But I do miss my childhood pet, which by all accounts was somewhat of an unsusal pet-a ram.

The life of Cholo reminds me that I need a pedicure! Lovely painting, as usual, Patricia!
