Gonna Share A Secret

I'm not the normal run of the mill sixty-year-old.  Surprised?  I hear you laughing!  No secret there.

Just to assure you even when sick I do some important things even through my suffering.  I've read a few books, cluttered my coffee table, and painted some oddities.
Empty yogurt cups have many uses
Eyes for my Gate Guardian...what good is a Guardian that can't see?
I remembered this piece and brought it inside.
Disassembled it
and disturbed a winter home.
I let him outside...
didn't want him crossbreeding with the spiders I already raise in the house.
I'm sure you're wondering what I'm doing.
It's okay.  Sometimes I wonder, too.
Between my Gate Guardian and my Stump Spy
nothing enters my yard undetected. 
My very own Redneck Home Security System.
See why I'm never bored?

So glad you shared, I think I get better faster too if I come up with something to keep away the boredom. I really like your spy!!

Yep, nothing gets you down! Very cool, and yes I was extremely curious, and of course now I'm thinking I need a stump spy too! Your guardian gate guy is cute too, but stumpy he totally rocks. One might even wonder, is there a camera in there! Heheheh! They'll never know.

Thank goodness you are not a run of the mill woman, that is what makes you so fascinating and great!
Your gate guardian and stump spy made me smile so much, they are brilliant. Loving the eyes and the colours and the gloves are a perfect touch :)

Gail, you are so creative and it really adds a nice vibe to your place. I try to let spiders go as well, need to keep the balance. I do agree guardians need to have eyes. The stump spy is adorable.

Delores said...

You are certainly not average or typical...you are unique and exceptional. Will you come to my place and make me a spy?

Mama Zen said...
