I had a hard time coming up with a guilty pleasure to photograph. I live so wide open, and I don’t guilt myself over life’s little pleasures. If there’s something that makes me happy, even if it’s something that other people may not really understand, I’m totally okay with that. So I went to Damon, and he gave me this ‘you really have to ask’ look, and said “Your ponies!” LOL
So here are a few members of my Applejack collection:
Applejack was my most loved pony when I was a little girl. I thought she was the loveliest of all the My Little Ponies. And while she was portrayed as a bit of a klutz on My Little Pony and Friends (the 80’s tv show), she was always “Princess Applejack” to me – she ruled over all my herd with a sweet and gentle hoof. 😉 So it’s with relish that I continue collecting Applejack, and even though she’s not my favourite of the new G4, Friendship is Magic, ponies she’ll always have a special place in my heart.
Well, we are almost through January, and I’ll admit… the last few photos may pose an additional challenge – seeing as how we leave for Disney World before dawn on Monday. But I’ll get’r done (as Applejack would say).
I’ve got lots that I could be sharing tonight. My mind is abuzz with possibilities and current happenings. LOL But, instead… mostly because along with that busy, busy brain comes a tired, tired body …I’ll share another piece of art I commissioned from a fellow artisan at Deviant Art.
I know I’ve talked about sharing a love of My Little Pony with my daughter, and I know I’ve done so on at least a few occasions. There really is nothing better than sharing something you love with someone you love – and MLPs? That’s our thing, the kids and mine. 🙂 So, when I saw this individuals work, I just knew I had to commission her to do a family portrait of us as ponies. So the girlie is Fairy Berry (the pony is completely her creation, her name, her colours, the kid’s creation totally and completely) and I’m Prairie Lily.
Now… Damon? He’s not so into the ponies. LOL He watches Thundercats and He-man with us, and he will watch Friendship is Magic. But it’s really not his thing. Thankfully? The kid took care of that.
Months ago now, she nick named her Daddy “Big Macintosh”. And, well… it just kinda fits. LOL He’s a Mac computer guy, he manages a produce department, he’s not a big talker with those who don’t know him well, and his favourite colour is red. So I started calling him our “Big Macintosh” too.
Anyway, onto the family portrait. It’s of us, as ponies. Fairy Berry, Prairie Lily, and Big Macintosh:
My thanks to Lady Yumika, for this lovely, true to the G4 FiM line, pony family portrait. I think it’s absolutely adorable, and the kid couldn’t be more thrilled – and that’s really what it’s all about for me. 😀
