Monica - Pickles and Ice Cream


Don't you find this a fun image?  I certainly do and that is why I am so excited to share this with you as my inspiration post for Cute As A Button today. When I was pregnant I was so sick I craved lager (hate it in non pregnant state!) as it was cold sour and fizzy. Of course I did not drink it, but ohhhhhhhhhhhh I longed for it! This image is the fabulous Monica - Pickles and Ice Cream.
