Aby-a-Day – 10 August: My humans went to Copenhagen and all I got was this lousy T-shirt (Fashion Friday)

Björn and I went to Copenhagen for a short holiday last week. We stayed in a nice (but HOT) hotel right next to Copenhagen’s Central Station. It was a perfect location, walking distance to everything, close to everything…including the famous Tivoli Gardens. It opened on 15 August 1843 and is the second-oldest operating amusement park in the world (the oldest is also in Denmark. Apart from having the oldest wooden roller coaster, it has shows, Halloween and Christmas festivals, fireworks, an adjacent hotel, and a number of restaurants and shops.


Including the only Build-a-Bear store in Scandinavia.


As you may recall, Jacoby loved going to the Build-a-Bear shop in Faneuil Hall, so when I saw souvenir T-shirts there, I knew I had to get him one.


It’s been a while since Jake’s worn any of his outfits, but as you can see, he’s still got it!

Aby-a-Day – December 4: Angel’s second Christmas (Friday Fashion Flashback)

Angel’s first Christmas with us was actually pretty much her first real Christmas ever, since her original cattery contacted the rescue at a cat show around 20 December, so all the stuff that happened to her, including her being taken to a regular kill shelter where she stayed for 72 hours was all going on around Christmastime. She had toys and a stocking for the very first time.


Her second Christmas, I had found a cute little Christmas cape at Build-a-Bear.


She wore it very well, and even seemed to like it.


Jacoby, on the other hand…


…Yeah, Jake was happy to wear whatever I gave him, and he rocked this Christmas Tree outfit.

Aby-a-Day – October 19: “My aura smiles and never frowns” (Fashion Friday)

Is there anything so cool as a punk rock hoodie with a faux-hawk?


If there is, I’d like to know what it is.


Black…check. Red plaid…check.



But you know what the best thing about this hoodie is?



(Besides the little earholes in the hood, I mean)


It’s from Build-a-Bear!

And, speaking of great fashion deals where you’d least expect them…


Remember this awesome Aby face T-shirt I posted about in July? Well, I found it on sale today! At BaxterBoo.com, of all places! I love BaxterBoo; Jacoby has some amazing coats and other clothes from there. But I never expected to find human clothing there! They have a great range of sizes in stock, too, according to the site: Small through 3XL! And, even better, if you order before October 21, promocode “WarmFuzzies25off” gets you an extra 25% off.

Aby-a-Day – September 21: The Karate Aby (Fashion Friday)

When we went to the Build-a-Bear shop in Faneuil Hall, I found something amazing for Jacoby.



A little karate gi, just his size!


It came with every colour of belt from yellow to black, but I thought the green belt suited Jake best.


He’s always had mad ninja skills, so I thought the gi was very appropriate.


Behold the master of kung-fu counter surfing!


Jake’s little uniform may or may not have inspired this Draw Something! picture…
