December Activities!

We had a spirited couple of days as we took part in some local Holiday events. Friday was the Toluca Lake Open House which was lively and fun! Clear skies made it a perfect night for families to enjoy the evening (and their pets too), plus live entertainment and yummy snacks to nibble on along the route. A great atmosphere. Saw some of our good friends and made new ones too. Thanks for stopping everyone!

Saturday was the Rescue Train's Gift Boutique, which was hosted by the lovely Samara in her gorgeous home. It was a beautiful day, supporting a wonderful organization. We're looking forward to being involved with future Rescue Train activities. Such a fantastic group of people. The talented Jessica from Sew Jessica joined us at both events with her line of handmade items for pets. Check her out here!
Hope you all had a fab weekend too!

It's not too late to order for Christmas. Contact us for shipping deadlines info!

Holiday Boutique #1

Our little corner at the sale!

This past weekend was one of a few holiday events we will be taking part in. A lovely 3 day boutique was held at our friend Linda's home. She was the most gracious and welcoming hostess. Her house was so inviting and with the Holiday music playing and treats spread out for all to enjoy, it made for a festive and cheery atmosphere. This is such an ideal way to support local crafters and meet them face to face. Also love that you don't have to fight crowds while doing your shopping. We met some really interesting and talented people. One lady in particular who stood out was, Virginia, a 93 year old ball of inspiration - still making scarves, gorgeous Christmas Tree skirts and ornaments. She was lots of fun. Keeping herself busy with her hobbies! :-) How fantastic. Thanks again Linda. And Chrissy too.
We are hoping to secure a spot for the Magnolia Park Holiday Open House event which will be this Friday. Let ya know if we get that worked out. We will definitely be at the Toluca Lake Open House on December 3rd. Can't wait. Our exact location details on Riverside Drive coming soon! xo

Remembering Lil' Tyke

Marmaladee didn't have her Lil' Tyke to help her harvest pumpkins for Halloween or Thanksgiving this season nor will Lil' Tyke help Marmaladee to tear the Christmas tree down! Our beloved comedian, blue-eyed boy passed suddenly this year. We are beyond sad and miss him terribly but when the California skies are bright blue, like most of the time (!) we feel he is watching over us, surrounding us with his precious purrs and loving presence. Goodnight our sweet Prince, Lil' Tyke.

Post Event Day

Last Sunday October 24th, was the Race for the Rescues event at the Pasadena Rose Bowl. We got there while it was still dark outside and set up our space and kicked into high gear as soon as the sun rose. We had our usual assortment and some limited time Halloween themed necklaces too. Best seller of the day? Our St. Francis charms!
Our friend and local sewing guru Jessica joined us and debuted her new line of handmade "doggy poop bag holders". You can find them here. They are beautiful and made from reclaimed and vintage fabrics. These make great gifts.
Sunday was such an awesome day, a large turnout -adults, kids, animals. We had made great new friends, four legged and otherwise! Lots of love, support, and positive energy was flowing. We know what a massive undertaking this annual fundraiser is for Lisa Young and crew. Kudos to her and all of the tremendous efforts from volunteers and vendors. A great day was had by all! Thanks to all who stopped by to see us. We look forward to seeing you at the next event. Will post those details here soon. Holidays are coming up fast so expect to see us out and about with new goodies! Happy Halloween!!!

Kitten Call

Three lil' kittens who have all their mittens are ready to come home and play! Also to be your amazing best friend. I hand raised, bottle fed these angels since they were 2-3 days-old! This was my first experience and I'm telling you I cannot wait to do it again. Such a loving, precious team-ship! They belong to Petmania, a pet shop but I am keeping them until they find homes.
Note: Cassie & Yoda are very similar as you'll see in the photos!

1- Mama Cassie (as she was a chubby baby) and now Miss Cassidy - Black. She is so sweet. Loves to give you (and my older cat, Marmaladee) kneading massages. She's good! She may have some Siamese or some Egyptian-type-ness in her. Ears and wedge-like face tells all. Very affectionate.

2- Yoda - Black. Oh my. He is so handsome. He definitely has Siamese, Egyptian-royalty in him. His ears, legs, & tail are so long and he has a gorgeous wedge-shaped head. He's "owned" me, so to speak. He loves to be near you and lies on you when he can.

3- Flash - Black with a smudge of white on his back, hence "Flash." A cutie, full of beans. He's not as "Siamese" lookin' but has such a boyish figure. Very affectionate.

For adoption in Southern California only please.
