HOT DOGS......
♥ ♥ ♥
I reached BACK IN TIME for this post that is
I've heard about PINK'S HOT DOG STAND for a long time now...
if ever i get the chance to go to LA again, I hope to stop by for one of their famous hotdogs....
nearly as old as MOI.....
 THE FONZ enjoying a famous hot dog or two....
I love this pink sign and I love HOT DOGS...How cute is this !!

I've been told...and I'm sure it's true that there's always long lines at PINKS...
Well...YUM !
Isn't TORI SPELLING beautiful !!
A pretty pink dress while she eats her PINK'S HOT DOG

AND, then, they make them special for YOU !
Happy weekend, bj

Mr. Sweet finished the shelf last night and now I'M IN THE PINK....
  and it is so pretty and he did such a great job, I am sooo proud of it...
It's just beautiful and it's not even finished.
Next comes the priming, painting, painting the stripes ( HUGE GULP ! )
the pretty mirrors, the brass balls on top at each corner (these have been ordered from Restoration Hardware and they are sooo pretty )
and the 5 brass coat knobs.

 It won't be ANY time until I have this hanging in my entry way......

Be sure to visit

Love the pink post. I love hot dogs but can't eat them alot any more.
Love your shelf. Where will you get the mirrors.
Thanks for the info on the camera. Your new camera must have been the Cannon. I have a Kodak Easy Share.......yours must be a new or better model as my pictures don'tcome out like that. Do you photo shop.
Hope your week-end is great.
We have had 80 plus temps all week......we having thunder boomers right now. I need one of thus thunder shirts for me and the doggies.

Mail me a hotdog when you get to Pink's!

Oh that shelf is amazing!! Can't wait to see what you do with it and how you make it your very own.

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I had a hot dog for lunch today! Your shelf is coming along nicely! Ask Mr. Sweet if he mails things to Philly:@)

Barbara F. said...

I love a good hot dog and would definitely go to this place if I ever get out to LA again. Nice shelf, I really wish you would consider renting out Mr. Sweet! xo

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

I have been there. I posted about it...Dec 2010. It was way fun...and there is a line...people honk while you are waiting.
But there was no one famous there the day I was there!!

You should go sometime!!

Debbie said...

Is that the hot dog stand that's in a commercial right now? Maybe Bank of America or something?

At any rate, it looks like a fun place with character. And the food looks good too!

Your shelf is going to be wonderful when you finish. Love it!

Loretta said...

Love love hot dogs...I use to watch Matlock and I would have my hotdog ready, because I knew he would eat one before the show was over. That way I didn't have to get up to fix one. lol!
Love this Post! Your shelf is really coming along fast, thanks to the Mister! Have a good weekend my friend! Hugs

LV said...

You hubby is a man of many talents. I do believe he could make anything he wanted to. I am sure he really wanted to make this tho. You might stop doing all that wonderful cooking.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

What a fun Pink post! I love that shelf and your hubby is so talented. Now for the painting! You can do it! hugs, Linda

doodles n daydreams said...

So that's what a real hotdog looks like!
I'm looking forward to seeing the finished shelf all hung in your entry. Your Mr Sweet is so clever.

Pam said...

First of all those hot dogs look so yummy. Your DH is very talented and your new shelf will look great in an entry way.

Happy Pine Saturday.

jeanne said...

Hi bj, No worries about visiting. You know I have spells where I do not have time to visit as well. I totally understand being busy!!!

Love the Pink hotdog stand and your pink post. We love hotdogs but eat less of them now.

I can't wait to see your shelf finished and looking awesome on your wall. Your hubs does good work and so do you.

Happy Pink Sat. and have a great weekend.
Love, Jeanne

Love Of Quilts said...

Your hubby has done a great job on the shelf. Can't wait to see it finished. Bet it will look better then the other one.

Shelia said...

Hi BJness! Love your pink hotdog post! You're always making me hungry. Pop on over to my blog as I have a surprise for you - it's late so forgive me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Kathleen Grace said...

Earl was looking over my shoulder and wanted to make sure I passed along his admiration for Mr. Sweet's workmanship! It's fabulous BJ! maybe he should start building them and selling them for $1000 himself! lol

Gemma Wiseman said...

Isn't the Fonz looking his usual handsome cheeky self! He has weathered well! And he looks quite at home in the Pink's world! An interesting collection of photos!

Kelly said...

I've heard of Pink's and would LOVE to go there! Give me a hotdog over a hamburger any day in the week.

Fun photos!

Shelia said...

BJ! Come back and look. I redid your snap. Somehow I had elongated and now it's looks wonderful. Now did I put those pink ball earrings on your tiny ears? It's been so long ago, I forget! You know me, I'm a silly.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Chubby Chieque said...

G´day Mrs Bj,

Wow! I mostly appreciate what your DH done. A wonderful DH will multi-tasking, isn't he?

Happy SSS both of you.


Ralph said...

I like hot dogs, but prefer mine nearly straight up, just a thin strip of mustard - I trust I could get a stripped dog there. And see a famous person or two while in the neighborhood!

An excellent paint and art job you exhibit in that shelf-nice

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Here's a puzzler: How come pink things don't make pink shadows?

Shifting Shadows

LV said...

I have never been big on hotdogs. I might like these since it is from a pink building.

Lighthousegal said...

Pink's looks like a great place for a hot dog.
Your shelf is awesome. I am sure you will enjoy it very much!

Happy Sunday!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

You DID reach back in time for that pink post! Indeedy do you did!
Your Mr. Sweet did a fantastic job on that shelf..a bit of painters tape, attach the mirrors, knobs..and YOU are one lucky gal. Please do take a photo of your entry so we can see what it looks like up on the wall. I'm getting all ready to swoon here! :)

Susie said...

We saw a Pink's while in L.A. but didn't get to stop...too many places to go and see. Love your shelf...your Mr. is a fast woodworker. Mine made me a bread box last week...I'll have to post a picture.Smiles to You, Susie(She Junks)

Jean Hart said...

I love your post. This was really fun.
Have a great day,

Jean Hart said...

Wow, this was a great post, lots of fun.

kitty said...

What fun readin about Pink's!! I'm so looking forward to seeing your finished shelf by Mr. Sweet.

Jojo said...

Never heard of pinks so thank you for the introduction.

Love the shelf your sweet husband made for you!! Amazing.

John McElveen said...

Let's all meet for a Dog!! I love places with such history! Beautiful post!


Patti said...

What a fun post to read!
Pink is a great color..and I don't care what those naysayers are talking about. ;-)

You made me want to go and get some hot dogs to have this week. We don't eat them too much, even though we like them.

Mr. Sweet is indeed talented. Nice shelf!
Hope you have a sweet week, BJ!

Kathleen said...

Your shelf is going to be the talk of blogland!
I can't believe the price of hot dogs. Over 4 dollars a lb for the all beef! Not such a cheap meal anymore! I guess we will be eating Ramen noodles at cookouts instead of hot doga and hamburgers! :)

The Tablescaper said...

Looks like fun! So great to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays. Hope you'll join me this week too.

James said...

I've never actually eaten at PINK'S but I'm eager to. Even if amazing Tori Spelling prefers this place to eat then it must be something great!
