Mid-Cape Highway

I've been to the Cape again and thought I'd throw up some pics from the visit!

Second, another beautiful winter sunset from Herring Cove Beach in Provincetown.

Third, a walk in the beautiful, hidden cedar swamps of Provincetown.

Third-b, another photo from that walk.

And finally, Clovis.

Home Furnishings

A friend gave me an enormous box of fancy fabric scraps. Velvets, toiles, floral prints. So I've been making lots of crazy things. In particular, the Magic Story Bag has been a big focus.

Here's the most recent and by far the fanciest.

Lined with a strong red floral print--it helps the magic!

And I needed a new cellphone case/wallet. My current one, a fancy leather "book", is in tatters. So I went to town with the fabric scraps and made a replacement! Feeling very DIY.

Here's Clovis having a good laugh the other morning.

Feeding Frenzy

Here is a video of Clovis demanding treats. Treat time begins at 7:30pm, but Clovis has been pushing it earlier and earlier. He is manifesting his need for treats, which made me curious, so I asked, "Clovis, do you want treats?"
