Colorado Pug Rescue – Pugs in the Park 2009

We are so excited! 

The Colorado Pug Rescue’s Pugs in the Park is this Sunday, Sept. 27th from 1-5 pm, at Denver City Park! 

Each year there are hundreds of pugs, people, costumes, food, contests and vendors!
Come and join the party and please stop by and say hello! Melanie, Mark, Fred and I will be there in our Pug Notes Booth. 

All of the funds raised at the party will help the wonderful foster pugs in the care of the Colorado Pug Rescue.
If you cannot attend, but would like to help the Colorado puggies, the CPR 2010 Calendar has just been released and is packed with wonderful pug photos. Each calendar is only $12 and all proceeds will go right to the pugs in need!

I cannot wait to show you pictures from our wonderful day!

We always have so much fun every year!

Porcelain Round Cut-out Ornaments

Happy Tuesday everyone! 
Today’s announcement is about the new round ornaments I have just added to Pug Notes
They are the same beautiful 3″, two-sided porcelain ornaments that I introduced last year in a snowflake shape. Now you can collect them in both styles. 🙂 
I love the delicate cut-out design!
Each one comes with a gold string to hang on your tree.
Tomorrow I will show you the last new item that you can enjoy all year long! 🙂
Emmitt has been a good boy and has not spilled the beans on all of the new items so far.
 Let’s see if he can keep it up for one more day.

Table Art ~ Pugs & Dogs

The newest addition to the Pug Notes’ product line is Table Art
Now you can display your 8 x 10 laminated wood art right out of the box with its attached easel! 
You can choose from any of my 120 + pug and dog paintings for your piece. 
It is the pefect size for any counter, table or mantle at 8″ x 10″ x 1/4″ thick.


The sides and back are beautifully finished in black.

I am so excited about the new Table Art pieces. 
They are a striking yet easy way to bring some color and whimsy into any room without needing to buy a frame. I love finding new affordable ways to bring smiles to people’s spaces! 
Happy Monday everyone! 
I still have more new stuff to show you this week!

New ceramic serving bowls are now available in the Pug Notes’ line of housewares.
The large size, 10 1/4″ w x 6″ tall, is perfect for serving from everything from pasta to chips or even fruit!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
