#2 I love the dead vines - very cool

#3 How awesome is that portable bonfire pit?

Mine are up, but I was a slacker and did one photo for both words.

Gorgeous pics, per usual Tink.
Mine are up and waiting for your visit, thanks!

That spider is awesome!

WTF for real with that mermaid lamp. It looks like it would scare the kids.

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger fiwa said...

That spider is seriously cool - I have never seen anything like it.

I'm so jealous of your trees! All we have are pines, and I really miss green, leafy trees.

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger furiousBall said...

that spider looks like something a transformer would shit

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger Jay said...

Ok, lets all focus on the spider. That thing seriously skeeves me out! Between those spiders and great big lizard-like scaly, slimy freaky things you have running around your area of the country I would probably never leave the house!

Great pics though! ;-)

That's a SPIDER??


At 05 August, 2008, Blogger J said...

I dig the spider. It looks like he's wearing a little yellow Mardi Gras mask. He's not scary, he's ready to party!

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger Janet said...

That vine looks like a stick creature and you KNOW what I think the spider looks like! The bokeh in that shot is gorgeous, btw.

The fire pit is amazing! The bag...kinda creepy! The snails? Adorable & affordable!

Mine's up:

That is one goofy looking spider. Wicked good shots all. Mines up.

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger Mary said...

I wish we had spiders like that, not fair!

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger Fortune Cookies said...

OK, ever-since my brown recluse bite, I'm terrified of spiders, but that one is waaaaay cool! I love those vines! Nice job, you always rock! Mine will be up later.

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger Knight said...

Very cool tree shot. That is now my favorite view in your yard as well.

I just bought the $400 cow. I'm going to keep it in my new Herbert bag.

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger Hilary said...

I SO don't like spiders.. but that's one incredible photo sandwiched in between the other two beauties. Well done!

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger the planet of janet said...

what a COOOL COOOOOOL spider!!!!!!

At 05 August, 2008, Anonymous Anonymous said...

WOW! What a spider!!
I'm with you on the view in your yard. Our trees were a huge selling point (buying point?) for us. The ancient a/c? not so much.

Mine are up.

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger moo said...

Oh, I LOVE that spider shot ... just beautiful!

Mine are up and uninspired. You've been warned. www.moosmoo.wordpress.com

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger Chris said...

I am afeared of that spider.

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger Karen said...

I love your view up high, that canopy is lovely.
I have a picture of that spider's brother. Ugly little suckers aren't they?

Mine are up, finally.

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger Reb said...

I would be staying in the house with Jay!

Beautiful photos Tink! I love the left over vine stuck to the fence and that spider is a beautiful shot.

That portable bonfire pit is cool, they look like the bottoms of old propane tanks.

Mine are up.

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger Sparkling Red said...


Phew. You scared me! That spider is far out, man.

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger Sassy Mama Bear said...

Oh spork Mistress I am posted this week...at the Cafe, please swing by, also have a photo contest there if you want to vote for me.
Love your pictures for this week...

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger Chatty said...

That spider is way cool looking. Such pretty colors! And your trees are beautiful, too.
My pictures are up.

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger sheilah said...

I wanna play too!! Mine are up.

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger womaninawindow said...

Very cool - all three but especially that spider!

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger Newt said...

That is cool and super creepy. Very nice! Mine are up - yes, I finally had a chance to play.

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger Fortune Cookies said...

bherrrrrr! that spider still gives me the heebeejeebies!
mine are finally up!come see!

At 05 August, 2008, Blogger OneDaisy said...

Ok, that spider! nightmare will follow.

At 06 August, 2008, Blogger Freakazojd said...

I love your photo of the spider but I would definitely NOT be interested in seeing it in real life. Please to read the following in your best Stewie voice: Gross.
Also, I have one of those firepits saved as a fave on Etsy - the wave one. That guy is seriously talented, wish I had an extra $800 or whatever lying around. ;)

Herbert is so going to give me nightmares. You should ask for the fir pit as a wedding present. its awesome!!!

At 06 August, 2008, Blogger Michael Knight Rambo said...

Re: WTF Etsy.
Herbert looks retarded. But the intelligence stitched into his crooked merino wool eyes makes me thing he's capable of love- maybe even self-sacrifice... either that or murder.

At 06 August, 2008, Blogger captain corky said...

I'd be worried if one of those spiders came into my house cause I would probably mistake it for a cupcake. And then I would really be up shit's creek without a paddle.

At 06 August, 2008, Blogger Farmer*swife said...

Cool pics! LOOOOVE the tree view! I love to take pics like that.

Farmer Junior LOVED the spider pic (me too).

Scatter and collect -- OK, I'll really remember to play this time!

At 06 August, 2008, Blogger cndymkr / jean said...

I had nightmares about that freaking spider. Please tell me it wasn't real (and yes, this is one of those times it's ok to lie to me).

At 06 August, 2008, Blogger mrspao said...

Wow - your spider picture is amazing.

At 06 August, 2008, Blogger Dianne said...

love the spider! I bet he's the envy of all the webs

I can see why that's your favorite view!
