Not only does my uncle Gary take wonderful animal pics from his home in Montana, he makes wood platters, bowls and other turnings. The above is an 11-inch platter made from sycamore. Please note the thicknesses are thin (<1/4 inches).
This bowl is made of ambrosa maple.
This small bowl is mostly oak with one laminated layer, and this weed pot is made of various woods laminated. Aren’t these all beautiful?
Mom gave me this really nice bag with lots of pockets for Christmas. Then she put something in each pocket. This isn’t even all the loot I got. I left some paints and papers at her house for our painting days. Happy dance!
I got Gruf a doggie bed. It’s “self warming”. His body heat warms it, and the reflective space blanket fabric keeps the bed, and him, warm. And it’s machine washable. Total bonus.
Before I was even done writing this post, this happened. Buddy is kneading like crazy.
Don’t know what this little guy is, but I found him exploring my art room. I relocated him outside, before one of the furbabies found him.
Took this picture yesterday before the storm hit. Those clouds are amazing!

As I continue to unpack, the boys are giving me their help.
Buddy is making sure these boxes don’t go anywhere.
Gruf Monster is testing the softness of the carpet.
Spunky Butt is just exhausted. And stressed. Poor guy keeps pulling his hair out.
