Sweet Sweet Surprise

This is one of my newest print of one of my favorite sweets. Cotton candy! When the good weather hits the city there are usually street fairs where vendors would sell freshly made cotton candy in all sorts of colors! You know those machines spin tiny clouds of sugar and sometimes they float up into the sky where people would try to catch it like a bubble. I'm looking forward to it and they're usually around during Sundays because many streets of Little Italy close down to car traffic and allows people to mill around. That's also when they have the freshly made gelato, fruit cake and all these sweets out ready to be purchased by the bag. The gelato an Italian variant of ice cream is absolutely scrumptious... I like the one from Ferrara, they make a delicious tiramisu gelato!
To my surprise it was featured in a sweet and sunny treasury! Click on the image to go there. Super thanks to Collectiveelements for creating such a wonderful collection. The sun is suppose to come out for the rest of the week so I hope it does!

Until next time... enjoy the wonderful sunny weather!

I love gelato! I had gelato everyday when I was in Italy. It's all over the place you can't go by without see a gelato shop. Now I'm craving one now from your print! @_@ How adorable!
