Them Three

Them Three
Originally uploaded by Bailey Doesn't Bark
I used inkjet decal.
The clear parts dry out white, so you have to apply several coats (with drying time intervals) of polyurathane (or something like).

these are going up on my wall. i just need to get more plate hangers...

{vintage} chalkboard

everyday, i write down my daily schedule on a post it note. i live by it. sometimes i lose it and i go nuts! a chalkboard seemed like a good idea. but finding a nice one was hard until yesterday! :)
i go to the annex flea market every chance i get. i'm so happy i went yesterday!

a mysterious package...

containing these gift wraps arrived today.

a lid from one side of the mailing tube was missing so i'm assuming there must have been a note, with some sort of information, that fell out.

i'm a very curious person, therefore, this is killing me.
the sender's address does not help me decipher the mystery, in case you're wondering.

my thoughts are:
1) i subscribed to a magazine that had a special offer/gift when signing up.
2) i purchased something but received the wrong item.
3) samples?



the {look}

i absolutely adore this photo... the moment... the look on bailey's face!
how do you like 'them giant tags?

boycott four paws

update: (a reply from four paws)

 Thank you very much for your email message. Like you, Four Paws is deeply concerned about reports of injuries suffered by some dogs as a result of a manufacturing defect in some of our Pimple Ball toys.

 We want you to know that we have stopped shipping these toys to our distributors and we have asked them to have retailers immediately remove the toys from their shelves and return them at our expense.

 We have also stopped all shipments of the toys from the manufacturer, and we are sending Executive Vice President Barry Askin to personally inspect the manufacturer’s facility in order to make sure that the defect has been corrected.   The ball was designed with two holes to eliminate risk of suction.  Unfortunately, in the production of some balls, the smaller second hole became blocked on the inside, thus making it hard to detect the defect with the naked eye.

 As a result, in addition to repairing the toy molds, we are also changing the packaging of the Pimple Balls.  The packaging change will result in a tie that must clear both holes, thus insuring there are always two clear holes in the toy.

 If you purchased a Four Paws Pimple Ball with Bell toy, please immediately take the toy away from your pet.  Instructions to return the toy are posted on our website

 Thank you again for your message and your concern.  Please be assured that the safety and well being of pets is our top priority and we are doing everything we can to make sure that this problem is solved as quickly as possible.


 Allen Simon
