The Past Few Weeks...

We went to Florida to go spend some time with my mother-in-law and she had these waiting for me!  Squeee, I think I'll keep her.  : )
 This spider was the first bug to greet me.  He was dubbed Spike.  Terror Spider from Hell would have also worked.  He was pretty cool though and respected my space.
 This was on the way down to a lagoon in Juno beach.  I've never seen anything like that before.  It was so lush, it felt like a rain forest.  
 We drove across Florida to Tampa to visit my family for a day and saw this awesome little spectacle of Airstreams. One day I will have one.  Oh yes...she will be mine.
 Meet the highest looking goat in all of Lion Country Safari.  
 Fancy Flamingos!  I just love these.  Living kitsch!
 This is a pond behind my MIL's condo on the golf course.  If you look really close, you can make out an alligator head in the middle.  In all the years I've been going to Florida, this was my first gator!  So cool!
 Oh man...that kind of a view never gets old.  This was on Hutchinson Island.   
Obligatory lizard picture.
 So we had the screen door open and I was standing in the doorway taking pictures of these Sandhill Cranes and their baby.  The Little Dude went out to grab a toy, and didn't notice the birds.  They were pretty far away so I didn't think anything of it.  Well they felt differently apparently.  They yelled some horrible noise and ran at us, right as I was taking this picture.  The Little Dude screamed and ran inside while I struggled to get the screen door closed.  One stopped a foot short of the door and just stared at us, growling.  Crazy ass birds stocked us for like 10 minutes before finally moving on.
 My new business cards were waiting at home for me.  I think they came out pretty cool.  What do you guys think?
 Look at this globe!!!  It is AWESOME!!!  That base, the colors...perfect!  The Mom asked if it was for the booth, and I said, "hell no!"  I don't have space for another one though, so I'll have to trade one of my others out and send it to the booth.  Maybe...
 Really?!  I'm so over this ridiculous pricing.  OUT OF CONTROL!
 This gorgeous old necklace came home with me at half price.  Does anyone have a guess at what the stones might be?  The stones are more purple than this picture shows.  I was thinking lab created Bismuth or maybe Peacock ore (though it doesn't seem heavy enough for that).
 A few weeks ago I purchased a bottle of wine for the label and won.  This week it was beer, and I didn't win or loose.  It was just meh.  Cool label though! 

Have you jumped on the Instagram train yet?!   Come on, it's fun!


  1. Loving your biz cards! I need to redo mine to match my blog header/button. But I do love my old ones...

  2. Nice finds! You need to find space for the globe. Your cards are nice too

  3. $3.99 & $4.99 aren't bad prices! That spider is gross. I wish I had a MIL like that!!! Envy!

    Great biz cards.

  4. Ah Florida...Juno Beach and Hutchinson Island are great, but yikes those sand cranes. We had geese chase us inside once, it is scary when they keep coming at you. What a great MIL. The covered casserole, way high. The other 2 would have been priced even higher around here, damaged or ugly or whatever, they price it like gold.

    Great globe, have fun choosing the keepers. :)

  5. Dang, forgot....Loving your cool business cards.

  6. How could anyone stand to live in a place that harbors spiders like that? *shivers*

  7. Good or bad, if my MIL had a stack of goodies like that waiting for me, I would definitely keep her around!!

    The bird story cracked me up! Damn viscous birds :-) Glad you had a fun trip. And yes, Instagram has taken over my life but in a good way. I LOVE IT! Thanks so much for being part of my addiction :-)
