What to Do?

Sometimes you just don't want to use that wrapping paper to wrap a gift
& then, what do you do? Well, Scaredy Kat's Teena decided that our
Suki alphabet wrap would work great as decor for her baby shower!
Cool, right? The banner above was made with 2 circles of the wrap glued together with hanging string between.
Here above, it serves it's orginal purpose - in a decorative way!
And, below, I just had to show the festive treatment she gave to carnival tickets.

MONDAY WE'LL BE CLOSED AS WELL (according to our new schedule).

Please be careful & safe.
We'll see you soon!

In just a few more days, we'll be celebrating the 4th of July & our nation's birthday (& our nephews', too!)! It's hard to believe it's almost July already & the U.S. will be 235 years old! (That's 1645 dog years, to those of canine persuasion) Crazy!
But, while we ponder this, just be aware that Scaredy Kat will be closed on this Monday, July 4th to join in the celebrating.
Happy Birthday!

Roller Boogie Time

A moment to give props to the Empire Rollerdrome. The Brooklyn landmark that was still gettin ' down until just a couple of years ago.

(from NY Magazine) The 30,000-square-foot space was built in the early years of the twentieth century as a stable for nearby Ebbets Field and the local police department; it became the Brooklyn Roller Rink in 1935. By the late seventies, the Empire had become the go-to spot for skate-world renegades to perfect their moves

A NY Times article about the Rollerdrom is here:
