There is a rat in my roof putting down his memoirs

It's about 4am that my little friend ratty pulls his Remington out and starts to type away. Rat-ta-tat-tat ... rat-tat-tat-a-tat-tap-tap ... and so on and so forth.

I am not sure what a rat has so much to type about but he's persistent. I am not partial to the old rat-sak, as trying to be an ethical eater I really can't go letting him bleed form the inside-out with a slow thirsty death.

So I am looking to send him on a writers camp. Hopefully far, far away from my roof. If anyone knows of a good place where gifted rats can let their purple prose flow freely please let me know.

The markets on Sunday went well, I was next to the sparkle of glass Hot Toffee and her partner in accessory crime. Couldn't help myself and I bought a little pair of 'second' glass earrings for a gift. Even her 'dud' stuff is great. Check out her Etsy shop or if you're in town come along to the Boutique Markets this Sunday.

I also scored me a fantastic deer brooch. A guy I met at the July markets was selling t-shirts with deer on them ... loved them so I got one for a 'deer' friend of mine. He remembered that I am a deer freak, so he gave me one of the new wooden brooches he's making! Unfortunately I can't remember their label name it may be 'tru love' ... if anyone knows let me know.

And I also bought this button necklace for the meagre price of $20 ... it's so pretty ... again I can't remember the label name of the girl who was selling them ... oops. And this pic does not do it justice.

If you have gotten this far in the post you are a good listener so you deserve the right to win a custom brooch ... no shit. Leave me a comment, any comment on what shape brooch you want if you win ... be it a cat, bunny, heart, rude words, sweet word, no words. Check out my etsy shop for ideas of what shape you'd like or look back though older posts.

You have a week to get you quick witted quip in ... good luck and good night.

hah! I love the part about the rat. And how your giveaway is hidden! Love the goose shaped brooch!

PS Pretty colorful necklaces!

The rat might have been reading 'Archy and Mehitabel' by Don Marquis and been inspired. It might be worth you having a look too.

I suggest you charge him rent, then when his book becomes famous and he makes serious money you can give interviews and make cash!

Oh oh oh ... I have so much love for you right now! xoxo Pity about the rat but maybe a little bit of an excursion to America like Fieval ... writers like to travel right? So you'd be doing the ratty a favour ... you know I'd be interested in tooth shape brooch ... I know you haven't made one before but I'd love a tooth made outta food pics with "gimme some sugar" on it ... sweet dreams xox
