Visuals

Sharing a couple of things today. First, an accomplishment:


Sunday night we hung up some stuff in the kitchen. Appropriately, it's a "Dog and God" motif -- three dog portraits, two religious items (the plaque, if you haven't seen one before, is in Latin... "Bidden or unbidden, God is present").
Oh, I meant to crop that image tighter so it would show up better. Eh. It's already uploaded now. You get what you get.


And the second image, from our usual dog-walk route around our new neighborhood:


Yes, that's a mailbox. With a little patch of grass on top. With an angel sitting there. If this doesn't look like a teeny little cemetery, I don't know what does. (Because of the positioning of the mailbox, though, we don't think it's deep enough to actually bury any complete creature carcass. Perhaps the ashes of the last mail carrier are in there?) SpookyRach, because of this scene, we think of you on every walk.

awww! I'm touched! haha!

The tacky angel I can understand, I guess. But the grass growing on the mailbox?? Especially since the federal government remains vehemently opposed to grass, even for medicinal purposes.

:D

By the way...

A couple of months ago, I made a set of clay tombstones that are just the right size for this miniature cemetery. As soon as I find them (moving mess!) I'll send them to you.

Do with them what you will. :)

rofl - you two are too funny!! I want hidden camera footage of the placing of the tombstones! Maybe the mailbox is the garden tomb? Maybe aother angel appears to open the door on Easter!

ElastiGirl, I love that idea! Maybe we'll sneak out there on Easter morning, open the box, and put a flashlight in the "tomb" for a good photo op...

Rach, the tombstones sound lovely...
