The Things We Do For Pets

hat would you do to keep your fur baby safe?

I was creating a new sock monkey for my Etsy shop, and had positioned the button eyes on with straight pins ~ as I usually do. One of the buttons fell to the floor, and Bogey (who I might add is always faster than lightening) jumped for the button with the pin. I was so afraid he'd swallow it . . . lunging forward, I tried to grab it first. Well, I tripped ~ left hand hit the ground, bent my thumb completely backwards and broke it! Now I am wearing a purple cast covering my thumb and up my forearm. Healing time will be about six to eight weeks, and needless to say I never even completed the sock monkey. Oh yeah, one more thing . . . I'm left handed!

The things we do for pets.

aturday, April 13 is Scrabble Day!

Dust off your board game.

The official  game of rainy days spent stuck in the hotel during a beach vacation, Scrabble is sold in 121 countries, with 29 different language versions. The highest recorded single word score was 365 points for quixotry. Coincidentally, quixotry is a word that describes Don Quixote~like impractical  quests, like the one you'd be on if you ever tried to beat that score!   ~Hallmark Ultimate Holiday App

Now, if you feel you need a little extra good luck for your next game, try wearing a handmade Scrabble Tile Pendant from IndyAndCleo. Available in a variety of colors and designs, each pendant is created with a real Scrabble game piece, and comes ready to wear with a 24 inch silver plated brass ball chain. We don't guarantee that you will win the game, but you will look positively fabulous dahling!
