We won!

We got one of the second prize slots in the 2012 Instructables photo contest!!!  We put out a photo tutorial of how we made the grieving angel.


Scariest art installation ever!

In 2010, a Viennese and Croatian designers spun this jaw-dropping installation at a German design fair: Enormous spider-webs made entirely from packing tape. And lots of it: 117,000 feet and 100 pounds of tape went into making these “huge, self-supporting cocoons that visitors could climb inside and explore.”

Not sorry that I missed this one....I would likely have nightmares!

Your tree was broken

I fixed it!

I think we can all agree.....that is MUCH better.

More frogs...

My favorite niece "Lex" gave me this for my birthday...way back in August.  I held on to it until my actual birthday so I could post it here.  The card is handmade but the black w/butterfly she said reminder her of me.

Best birthday present ever!

The frogs just keep on coming

My mom gave me this of them is a frog "mascot" from Fed Ex....I think I might have found my new favorite shipper!

One can never have too many frogs

Especially if you are the Frog Queen. 

Thanks to my good friend Josh who makes amazing metal work who made me this very cool metal go with the metal spider....just for the record, I like the frog way better!

His spider webs are awesome!

Take a small break from Halloween

to say happy anniversary (29 years) to my cute husband!

I rarely win a battle against Hal be honest all our cats get away with murder.  Actually Hal has gotten away with a lot of murder recently as you may have read.

Halloween afternoon things changed.

Hal really wanted outside like he has want to do, and we let him go, he is a stray from the neighborhood, it is hard to keep him in.

So when he ran past me on Halloween to get outside, I think he was quite surprised that almost immediately Husband and I tracked him (tricked) him back in the house.

He was not happy.

"What the ^%$# is this?" he said.  "I mean you named me after this holiday, the props belong to me....let me the hell out of this house.....there are people with cameras coming....I must be in the photos!!!"

At least that I am pretty sure that was what all the crying and attempt to claw my face off meant.

I could sit there and explain to him that Halloween is not the best day for cats, and especially mostly black cats, and not all our neighbors are crazy about our yard and have been a bit open about it, not saying that anyone would do anything - but I rather be safe than sorry.

But, since he is a cat and no matter how I try, I have not gotten him to understand or speak English - rather than the lecture......I gave him extra gushy food.  Which distracted him while I opened the door to head back outside to set up the effects.

He was not as happy....but he was safe.  That means husband and I were happy.

I was thinking ahead, Marci came over to take pictures of the yard today - it would not be a Davis Graveyard photo shoot without Hal pictures.

I am Hal and I am a prisoner in my own home....someone please come rescue me....or bring me caviar.
