      It felt like an unproductive year – I was very surprised when I went back through my blog! Happy New Year to you as well! Your life is so different now to when you bought the Cape of Dreams. I look forward to seeing what 2019 brings for you and your family!

    WOW – you accomplished so much and it’s all beautiful! My favorites are the cat door into your 1st floor bath (so functional and SO cute – and the picture of Darwin going through the door cracks me up). And my other favorite is the chameleon picture – that’s spectacular! Great job on everything!

      Thanks! I love it too. A whole year of work to finish him, but it was worth it. Jim asked me to paint a smaller one on the inside of the living room AC doors, so when the doors are open all summer they’re will be a chameleon 🙂 I like that idea a lot so that’s on my list for 2019!
