  2. Cape is adorable. :)

    Excuse the ignorance- what is the point of these things? Do they smell good? How long do they last before getting icky?

  3. Thanks, he loves his cape, too. I do need to do some re-sewing, though.

    From Wikipedia: "A modern form of pomander is made by studding an orange or other fruit with whole dried cloves and letting it cure dry, after which it may last several years. The modern pomander serves the functions of perfuming and freshening the air and of keeping drawers of clothing and linens fresh, pleasant smelling, and moth-free."

    I didn't know all that, but they do smell lovely, are pretty, were good for fine motor skills, and a Christmasy-activity :)
