If you're in Austin...

Head on in to Austin's Book People, which is the best bookstore EVER. Seriously. And I'm not just saying that because of this...

They've got signed copies of the "Elven" Edition of Death Becomes Us.  What's the Elven edition, you ask?

It's a true collector's edition. Get it while you still can!
And last but not least, I wanted to post a picture of Violet's cremains. Not the actual cremains, but the box that holds them. Violet was cremated and they gave me her ashes in this lovely little box. The name is crooked, which is going to drive me bonkers, but I really like having this. My other cats were put in little silver tins, so this feels extra special. 

Have you had any of your pets cremated? If so, did you get a special box or an urn for them? Do tell.


  1. I've had 4 of my sweet kitties cremated. They are in little ceramic urns. Each is a different color. You could pick the color. I put the paperwork with their date of death and their tags in the urn with the ashes. Each one has a different cat angel I've attached to the lid. They are on the shelf above my desk.

    1. I wish I'd done that with my other cats. When my dog died, we buried her on our property and placed all the cats ashes in the ground with her.

  2. We had Tipper, our Yorkie cremated. It was really nice. They even gave us his paw print in plaster. I still can't talk about it without

    He's in our office with a small picture.

    1. It totally sucks to lose a pet. I am going to do the same thing with Violet. I have a really good picture of her that I want to frame.
