and no…I didn’t get caught doing something naughty.
The Divine Iguana spent a while in our studio with Channel 4, Live in the D’s Michelle Oliver discussing the fine art of making beautiful things from the ‘stuff’ people throw away.
And then we did a little LIVE followup where I successfully did not pee myself on camera. We can all thank my friends and coaches at Shadowbox Live for teaching me not to curl up like a pillbug under the lights
Many thanks to Rhonda Walker for letting me highlight the new “Best Friends” earrings that were designed to raise funds for local animal rescue. We’ve only raised about $50 so far, but the numbers will only rise with time!
Did you catch the story? Let me know what you thought in the comments below!
Those of you who know me are aware that the only thing I love more than my pets is…nothing. There is absolutely nothing that I care about more than my animals.
After adopting Mr. Bob I became painfully aware of how may animals need our help. I can’t adopt them all, so I devised these earrings as a way of providing support to those organizations who do the hard work of rescuing animals. Every dollar helps.
BTW If you’d like to see an endless stream of cute dog pics, follow Mr. Bob on instagram @SeniorBasset
BEST FRIENDS EARRINGS
Antique illustrations of popular (and some obscure) dog breeds (with some original Divine Iguana illustrations for those breeds that have changed A LOT over the last 100 years). Decoupaged onto the backs of vintage poker chip and game piece earrings and hung with assorted colors of ceramic beads to make simply adorable earrings.
$2 from the sale of each pair of Best Friends Earrings goes to support animal rescue.
