The Attic Shoppe will be closed until further notice. I took the announced sale down for now. Don’t worry, the Isidore deck will be available later on. Bethie took a tumble down, of all places, the attic steps and has grievously injured much of the left side of her body. She’s looking at various corrective surgeries and an extended period of healing. The first thing that has to be dealt with is the very bad orbital fracture and a concussion that has left her with blurry vision. So we’re going to keep her on bed rest for awhile and give her a chance to heal. Thank you for understanding. *I have edited this from the original post.

Yes, this month has pretty much surged past me. The first part of it was recovery from my surgery, which actually took a little longer than I expected. The second half of it was rather sad. My husband and I had to come to terms with the fact that our 18 year old much beloved kitty Evilyn was winding down. There came an evening where she stopped eating and just wanted to be left alone to sit on the fireplace tiles. She never came back from that. We took her into a very good and compassionate local vet.
I’ve been with that kitty since her birth. She was the runt of three black kittens born from one of my mother’s cats. She took absolutely no crap from the much bigger male kittens. And she, though seemingly all black, had one white toe. I called it her evil toe and so came her name. Not having her greeting me every morning has been hard. Since we’re in a rental property we decided to make a living memorial with her cremains. We laid her to rest underneath a lucky bamboo tree that now sits in her regular spot in the sun.
I will be very honest with you. Between post surgery meds, recouping, and losing my best girl I have not been up to much this month. I’m getting things back online though. Either by the end of this evening or tomorrow morning the Isidore tarot second edition will go up for sale one last time. Never fear. I will move onto the third edition that will have a change up in packaging but should be affordable for all price brackets and will come out shortly after the close of the second edition sale. I will be updating my coupon list when the sale goes online. Don’t worry about it selling out. I will sell as many as will sell through a timed sale.
One last quickie note: Since our tee shirts have become very popular (thanks to the ease of selling through RedBubble and Threadless I have a little extra income that I can put right back into my shop) I made a dedicated page that makes it easier to see what designs we have available and where you can get them. You can find that link here. I hope you’re all well.
