For your consideration:
The Manor of Mixed Blessings Zazzle Store
Here you will find various items festooned with photographs of residents of the Manor. So far it is heavily poultry-centric, and also heavy on the cards. Because I really like stationery, that’s why. I am totally willing to take requests.

If you’re over on G+, why not say hi? I always like it when someone other than my Dad (Hi Dad!) turns out to be reading, after all.
If stationery with chicken pictures isn’t your thing, my friend Kate has a revamped shop and all kinds of spiffy soaps, plus a new URL which I probably need to update in my sidebar. But if you have a yen for spiffy soaps, bath stuff (the sugar scrubs make a wicked bath additive although Kate will not tell you this), and amazing lip balms, point your browser at Om Shanti Naturals.
If you’re a service dog handler, you ought to check out Pawpower Creations for all your leash, collar, and harness needs! Dedicated readers will remember I kidnapped Pawpower earlier this year and took her to a chicken swap. She was really very good about the whole thing and deserves some holiday love!
And finally, my talented artist friend Julie Madison’s Etsy shop, Cats On Rocks, is freshly re-stocked with DAPPER DOGS IN DERBIES coasters. The art is fantastic, and if you cross her palm with silver she will do a fantastic custom portrait of your pet. I am pretty sure that she will do one no matter the species, since she is currently working on a piece for me that involves not only dogs and cats, but turtles and chickens. But also there are serious cats in silly hats and I am kind of swooning over the dapper dogs in derbies.
