Mr. Tiger Goes Wild

A recent trip to the library introduced me to Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown. The pictures are beautiful, the humor is cute and the message is poignant. What's not to like?

Porch Perfect

Some time this winter we plan to fix our back yard/porch situation. I want my porch to look like this. Sorry I can't credit the pic, it's from Pinterest — looks like it was scanned from a magazine (?).

A Confident Handshake

I super-love artwork by Adam Hill. The happy, destructive octopus with ye-olde ships and the snakey handshake are my faves. See more here.

Creature Colors

Photo from Brisbane Insects.

I followed an "odd nature" google-trail after my colorful mushroom post and found this freaky, freaky wattle cup caterpillar. Does this really exist?! What's even better is that I found a yarn company (Cephalopod) that actually made a wattlecup-inspired colorway of their yarn. Sadly Cephalopod went out of business in July but their yarns had other great names/inspiration like "Blue Ringed Octopus" and "Violet Tailed Bluet".
