A Great Giveaway and News from Zoe

So how many of mew get lost out there blogging?!?  Yikes! Good thing the crowd is a friendly bunch because I certainly spend a lot of time out there after dark and into the wee hours.  As a cat, you probably expect this from me - you know prowling >^.,^<

I was supposed to post first and then prowl....key word: supposed to.  Don't ask me what happened because I'm not even sure.  One minute I had the "new post" page open and whoooooof next thing you know I was here and there and found a blog called YaYa Chique.  And they are having a giveaway of some wonderful vintage treasures!!  It ends soon, so you'd best light a fire under your tail and get a move on over there, if you want to enter!  And try not to get sidetracked into some alley promising a good mouse snack....

Okay, next thing....does anyone remember Zoe's adventure out into the studio???  Well while she was napping today, I snuck into her baskie and snatched up the pictures of what she found out there.  Not sure what all the fuss was about.  Purrsonally, I think she was just enjoying tormenting me. Here's the mess and the works in progress:


And here is the one that is finished.  This is a marriage of a hardback book cover, a vintage personnel file tab that accepts chalk, trims, a copy of a vintage picture, chalks and some scrapbooking paper and verses.  The theory as I understand it, is to organize and mark the different types of books on a bookshelf.  This one would probably by used to mark sissy girl's books.




"She" is also working one that could be used for travel and another for something masculine or antique.  Hopefully those will get done this weekend.  All depends on how much attention I require and I haven't decided.

And just for the record, yes, that is an old bear and no, I am not responsible for his condition, especially the foot.  He came to us just like you see him now.  He is a big "paws off" specimen.  Which is fine with me, he's so fragile there wouldn't be much satisfaction in tearing him to pieces.  I could finish him off in 45 seconds or less.  No challenge for a ferocious one like myself ;)

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  I'm off to prowl more blog alleys.....

SHE has been quite busy then, hasn't she? I hope she is not neglecting you, messing around with all that human catnip stuff. Happy alley prowling!
