I Love Me Some Frogs

I started to call this post "While I Was Away", as it's been awhile since my last one. But I wanted to give you some eye candy so I decided to show yet another of my collections...

Flower frogs.

Love love em...

I recently discovered that you can even hang them on the wall for a fresh way to display them.

Enjoy...

Me love frogs too - toads as well :)! Unfortunately, I don't have as many as you and we don't find that many neat ones here, but I really enjoy seeing the photos. I particularly LOVE the leaf shaped one and the ones hung on the wall is just an awesome idea! Love it all - thanks for showing us!

Happy Monday!

I too love Flower Frogs. I use the "spiked" ones to display photos and business cards but haven't come up with very many creative ways to display the ones that you have hung on the walls. Does anyone have any different uses for them?

So cool! I almost hate selling them in my shop because I want to keep them all for myself. Thanks for sharing!

Okay Shelley, the frogs in the frame thing is totally awesome! I'm so copying that. I need tho watch faces you have on your header. Really tho, if you ever come across pocket watch parts let me know. I'm on the hunt. Lisa

Oh boy! I see one frog that I don't have yet! I love the wire frogs, great collection. I love how you displayed the frogs in the picture frame. Very creative!

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

Love them too! Buy whenever I see them, which isn't often.

I was thinking about the putting on the wall...like huh?? but then I saw you meant the loopy ones.

Good idea!

Oh thank you Susie. I always surprise myself really. It's just a sony cybershot digital, nothing fancy. I am itching to get a "real" camera though. Would definitely have to have lessons then.

Hugs,

Shelley
