So yesterday started off a bit scary...Pixie came running down the stairs with something in her mouth as fast as she could. Both Bob and I tried to corner her under the table to get it from her, it looked like she had a used dryer sheet in her mouth. Just as one of us was about to reach for it *sluuuuurrp*, she sucked it right down and swallowed it! Pixie has been known to steal her share of scrapping scraps and nibble on them (as much as I try to stop her, pull them from her mouth etc.), but this really had me worried as I didn't know if it would hurt her :( The vet suggested hydrogen peroxide to get her to throw it up but that didn't work so to the vet we went...they couldn't get her to throw it up either so the remedy we came home with is...
I will let you all use your immagination for the rest of the story...anywho, she is snoozing away happy as can be and has even had the nerve to come nibbling around my paper scraps last night. I don't know why the words "cat lax" make me giggle, but they do.
On a happier note, here are some goodies I have picked up here recently.
A typewriter!!! Yay, I have been searching for one for a while and found one in a local antique store with a big ol' sale tag on it so of course I scooped it right up. It works great, but if someone has any info on where I can get ribbons it would be greatly appreciated :)
I also found a cute scale at the same shop
Some old patterns and vintage party favor cups
I went to Michaels to check out the new Martha Stewart Halloween stuff and came home with this cool metal sign...not MS but cool none the less.
