Desert Dessert (P*S*C* #14)

Do you get carried away with a tasty dessert? I know I do...especially those with chocolate in the ingredients! Recently, we experienced this feeling of "Oh, It's So Good" and it happened in the Sonoran Desert of all places!
(Following our few days in the LA area, we trekked across the desert to a major city in AZ via car. The trip was a delight to behold: saguaro cactus with individual personalities, wind farms with whirring blades, snow-capped mountains in the distance, and a sunrise and sunset to take our breath away.)
Imagine our surprise to find out that Dale Chihuly - the famous glass artist - was having his works on special display at the Desert Botanic Garden near to where we were staying...simply amazing! Seeing his creative, inspiring monumental glass orbs, spires, balloons and spikes displayed in the open air with a backdrop of cactus was as good as any chocolate concoction ever ingested!! Really!

Are your eyes watering yet? Now about that chocolate...gotta go!

This concludes the Pink Suitcase Chronicles Series #14. Meanwhile, I await a reply from the American Tourister company to see if they can replace my Pink's lost label. Oh, and also await their response to take me on as a Spokesmodel for their company...lol!

Couldn't possibly think of a better spokeswoman for American Tourister than you! That made me laugh aloud! I can see the ads already...

What? Are you guys retired? Everytime I check out your blog, you are jetting here and there and I find myself very jealous(and maybe a little happy for you). I love the glass that Chihuly does. I haven't been to his museum yet in Tacoma, but I heard it is amazing. He actually has a cabin near my parents, so they have seen him in the general store for coffee by their house. Of course, my mom probably wants to put him up on her wall of fame with pictures, but she hasn't embarrassed us with that yet! ;) next time you are out this way, take your little pink bag and we can check out Chihuly's museum

I like the spiky glass sculptures the best! And of course that cake is making my mouth water as well.

Beautiful art is what he does for sure! Now you want to make me go to Arizona for some desert (and dessert) fun!

Wow! It looks like you are on another planet!

And surely, if you sent the suitcase people your blog address, they couldn't turn you down as spokeswoman!

Mmm, that cake looks delicious!
