  1. Suzanne,
    What a wonderful logo! Totally loved it :). Azita sure is very talented. Did notice that on your twitter. I have been meaning to do a logo for my blog too. Soon :)…

  2. Wonderful! Yes, i had wondered about the page design — and admired it very much. I’m so glad you shared this. Besides, i needed something cherry, since a few minutes ago i took a header down my front brick stairs. Big ole scrapes bruises and (since i have even more stairs inside) a sprained ankle. When i do something, i don’t do it half way! 🙂 Thanks for the fun post.

    • Oh Teagan, are you ok???? you poor thing. Take care of yourself and Thank you so much.

  3. Love the logo!! When the pears are ready to pick, you should make a pear tart or something and blog about it!! 🙂

    July 31, 2014
    • I hope the neighborhood kids don’t pick them before they have a chance to ripen. i only have 6 pears on the tree, it’s really quite small and young. If I have pears I will definitely post a recipe. Thanks Michael.

    The business cards are lovely and unique. So sorry about sweet Daisy. It is a terrible grieving process, as we lose our precious family members. Your vegetable cous cous looks delicious. And…there is something about a pear tree ~

    July 31, 2014
    • Thank you so much on all counts. Totally agree about a pear tree, pears in general, not sure why I am so visually attracted to the fruit but I am, its just so beautiful.

  7. I’ve always loved these little pugs on your blog Suzanne! I had no idea that it was Azita that designed them! So talented… so adorable. ❤

    July 31, 2014
    • Thank you, Azita is an amazing and very very talented person. If everyone knew just how talented she is, word got out I am sure she would not have time to breathe, I want her to have time to breathe but also wanted everyone to know how wonderful she is. Thanks so much Prudy!

  10. Congratulation, you have your own pear now, make some pear dessert later. Lovely!

    July 31, 2014
  11. Azita’s illustrations are lovely. I had noticed and admired them when the first appeared in the sidebars. May your pear tree be very fruitful. 😉

    July 31, 2014
    • Thank you. I LOVE what Azita did, she is so very talented, and so excited about the pears. YAY!!!

      July 31, 2014
  12. You know I love your logo and Azita is incredibly talented. So nice to have her back…I’m going over to see her portfolio now. Nice post Suzanne. Hope you are able to harvest all 6 pears before the neighborhood kids do!

    July 31, 2014
    • LOL, just checked and there are 5 someone got one. Thanks, Azita’s portfolio is incredible as is her talent.

      July 31, 2014
  13. Love your new logo!!! It’s perfect for you!

    July 31, 2014
  14. Indeed, Azita is talented in many fields! Your business cards, logos, blog background are adorable, attractive and fun to look-at artwork! Thank you for directing us to more of her creations. It is a great feeling to watch your tree(s ) bear fruits and even better, to taste them. 🙂

    July 31, 2014
    • Thank you Fae, it’s wonderful to look at Azita’s work. She is amazing and I do hope the pears are good, I want to bake something with them.

    Azita is very talented! I love the dog in the logo, especially in black…

    July 31, 2014
    • Me too, the black is my favorite against that green background. Thank you.

      July 31, 2014
  16. Azita is so darned talented. Her blog is just a visual delight. I didn’t know that she does freelance art work. Very good to know!!!

    July 31, 2014
    • She certainly does and I am going to have her design note cards for me also. I love the place she uses for the printing, excellent quality.

      July 31, 2014
  17. Oh my wonderful logo Suzanne…just adore your cute Pug and favourite fruit logo….perfect. ….Congrats dear Suzanne. ….

    July 31, 2014
  18. Love your logo and business cards, Suzanne! I added pears to my smoothie today. What a coincidence! 😀

    July 31, 2014
  19. I love Azita’s artwork and I fell in love with your logo as soon as I saw it a few months ago. The business cards are gorgeous! How lovely that she made one for each pug! Just lovely!

    July 31, 2014
    • It really is nice and so glad to have a card for each pug. She just does such great work. Thanks Francesca.

      July 31, 2014
  20. Awe love it all and I heard of that business card co before looks good and you’ve inspired me to do some pug paintings hehe

    July 31, 2014
    • Oh fun, I want throw pillow covers hand painted with Izzy and Nando, I have to find someone who does fabric painting, Really want to see your painting,

      July 31, 2014
      • Oh there is some great pug cushions and hand painted pottery in a shop down the road one fawn and one black pug with top hat v similar in style to your logo 🙂 I’m
        Always tempted but have sooo many cushions they have two left last I looked

        July 31, 2014
      • I need to look around and see if I see any that I fancy. I have seen embroidered but I don’t want that I want paint on fabric either silk or cotton. I just adore pug paraphernalia, I have some around here 2 antique ceramic pugs, pug paintings I got on etsy, pug mugs. LOL. I’m a little nutty.

        July 31, 2014
  21. Hi Suzanne, love the logo, it is perfect. Been thinking about a logo for my site, when I’m ready I will use Azita, her work is lovely!

    July 31, 2014
    • Thanks Cheri, I highly recommend Azita, she is fantastic in every way.

      July 31, 2014
  22. You’re both such amazing and talented women! I really do love your ‘pug and pear’ logo and great to see the business cards too – the colours and styling are perfect! Great to look through some of Azita’s portfolio just now too – amazing work!

    July 31, 2014
    • I really love it too, Azita captured exactly what I wanted but had a hard time conveying. She is intuitive. Thanks so much Margot.

  25. It is nice to see how many bloggers are not only good behind a stove but also creative artists 🙂 The logo is perfect!

    August 1, 2014
    • I totally agree, and I am sure if queried you would see so many food bloggers are artists, it kind of goes hand in hand. Thanks so much.

    So beautiful! I’m sure you’ll enjoy them. And I hope those darn neighborhood kids or ADULTS don’t pick them. Lol

    August 1, 2014
  27. They’re also such a beautiful blossom in spring! The pear trees, that is.

    August 1, 2014
    • So true, just beautiful, Johnny where have you been. Haven’t seen anything from you lately,

      August 1, 2014
      • I’ve stopped blogging. Will have to be quick here as there’s a massive thunderstorm right now. May have to disconnect. Anyway, I’m keeping kitschnflavours open for now. But I’ve put Flours n Dainty Buns private. I’m not even sure if I can give passwords for it or not. Will have to figure that one!

        August 1, 2014
      • Oh wow, I will miss you and your recipes and posts. Stay safe from the thunderstorm.

    Very cute design and business cards, Suzanne and I see you have one of each! Too cute! So happy for you and your pear tree! I hope you get to harvest your fruit! It’s the best feeling!

    August 2, 2014
    • Thanks so much Christina, I love the pug and pear. Yes keeping fingers crossed that people don’t steal my now 5 remaining pears. There is also a problem with squirrels, they will pick the fruit, take a few nibbles and throw it away. Wasteful creatures,

      August 2, 2014
  29. I love(!) these images! Perfectly captures a pug’s inquisitive head cock. 🙂 Great job, Azita and Suz!

    August 2, 2014
    • Thanks Em, it really does doesn’t it. Azita managed to capture it and she doesn’t even own a pug. It’s like their signature pose.

      August 2, 2014
  30. Well done to Azita. I was wondering whether you had done them… They’re gorgeous!

    I don’t believe that pear tree is already bearing fruit – congrats!!!
    Btw, your biz card illustrations are adorable! I was always under the assumption that you drew/designed the pugs on the side of your page – you are amazing forgivingcredit where credit is due!
