The Great Sleeping Studio Beast

Oscar, of course, has a bed in the studio next to me. Most of the time he sleeps on it, though sometimes (especially when the summer air gets unbearably hot) he sleeps around it. On the day pictured above, he chose to sprawl directly where I needed to stand... fine...

Mad as a Halloween Hatter

We (OK, "I") had grand plans for this year's Halloween dress-ups... One wacky and random spark of an idea set off a few late nights of sewing, copious fit-testing, and great buckets of treats consumed (to keep one of the most patient dogs on the planet well compensated for his...

The Return of Dogpants and... Donuts?

Dearest readers, best dog friends, fans of fine donuts, and alllll of the lovers... Sooo, let's just never mind the fact that you've seen neither hide nor hair of the Beast and I in... nearly four months... Yeesh. *One should really only indulge in so many self-shaming apology posts before...

Move Over, 2012...

After an indulgent (and much needed) long holiday break, reveling in knee-deep fresh snow (WE HEART YOU, VT!!) and snacking on way too many cookies, Oscar and I are back in the hood - and a bright, shiny New Year is upon us! We hope you enjoyed a similarly cozy-fied,...

Gingerbread... with a Twist

Sooo, even with a holiday to-do list already busting at the seams, inspiration struck last week when I stumbled on this kinda amazing, albeit ambiguously simple, novelty gingerbread cookie-cutting set. I've made my share of spice-cookie architecture and smiling ginger-boys and girls, but this was something new, something special -...

Delicious Winter

Snow may not be everyone's preferred taste, but January in New England without a crisp blanket of white feels utterly lacking. Even after the sparkly silence of a city-mandated snow day has dusted off to expose sore shoveling muscles, lost mittens, and street-parking contests - you can't ignore the magic...

Thankfully (for the breed) Rhodesian Ridgebacks are still unusual enough that it's a special day when I come across one out in public. Even more unusual is the chance discovery of a fellow creative who also considers a Ridgeback among the world's best artistic muses. I stumbled onto the fine...

Sleeping Positions...

Like any good Ridgeback, Oscar is a sneak and a clown and a stubborn mule when he wants to be, but due to many years of training, he also has excellent manners. One of his most endearing qualities is his refusal to climb aboard furniture until he has been invited...

Dog Days & Dandelions

Here in New England, the traditionally sultry months of July and August are known affectionately as the dog days of summer. The term goes back to Greek and Roman times when it paired with the celestial phase of Sirius, the dog star. The Romans weren't fans of this heated season...
