The Fire Cat mani




I'm BACKK!!!  My blog has been being silly lately.  I think it is fixed.  Hopefully...

So I have a super silly mani for you all today.  I appreciate all the concerned emails and Twitter messages about the weird state of my blog.  Thanks for reading!!

This manicure reminds me of a book I loved as a child: The Fire Cat.  It is about a huge yellow cat (with black polka dots) named Pickles who helps out the firefighters in the town.  I have a very vivid memory from the first time I ever read it: I had just broken my arm playing at a park playground, and my mom rushed me to the ER.  We were sitting in an office waiting for a doctor to put a cast on my arm and my mom was reading me this book.

This is a weird looking mani, but I was just hit with memories of Pickles and his big paws while I was photographing this one.  I wonder if my parents still have this book.  Not love-loving the mani, but loving The Fire Cat memories :)

Did any of you ever read this book?  It seems kind of obscure, but you never know!
