Yes we have some creepy crawlies here in Australia. And we’ve had so much rain over the last few months that many of them have headed indoors for safety. Lucky us! Of course we have some covetable critters like those above, all from Aussie artists/sellers. I’m okay with most critters…but snakes, they do make my skin crawl! What’s your phobia?

SPIDERS! They freak me out! I try and appreciate them for their pest control abilities, but all those legs..*shudders*

Well done - you've listed all my phobias in the one post! No, not quite. You've omitted sharks.

Rachael Honner said...

Such a clever woman you...Some very lovely Dusty finds there! I agree I can handle spiders, but like you am not so great with snakes... Love your animations, best go they are a lil scary ;-)

ewww- wonderful creepy crawlies! I don't mind any on the page but in life - yikes! I don't like roaches or big spiders & am terrified by alligators & sharks - so what do I do but move to Florida - haha. Good thing I'm ok with snakes & lizards as we have a bunch (mostly outside)

and then you use these scary things to bookend beautiful art. sneaky and clever :^)

hope you are well. ♥

um...yes thought it was just snakes but after reading comments...maybe sharks as well...it doesn't stop me getting in the ocean but hey if something brushes past my leg the old adrenalin starts pumping!

I like looking at your redback spider (is it?) but that is it - one the screen only. Spiders worry me more than snakes but only because there is more chance of coming across one here in the city. But you never know.... I think I heard of one in the inner west of Sydney lately.

I am so not a snake lover that I zipped past your post and went straight to the comments.

I seem to do much better with spiders!
