Incy Wincy Spider

So as this weeks word is Spider I had to go and look for a few to share with you, so fair warning, if you are a real Arachnophobe you might want to bypass my blog today. For all you other Arachnophiles (is there such a word?) here come the spiders!

Lets start with this cutie from Buttuglee. His name is Theodore and he is one of many beautiful sculptures made by Jennifer of Buttuglee. If you have a fly problem in your home then Theodore looks good and hungry for a bite.

BarrelOfMonkeys little spider badges say it all for me today. I'm not in the best of moods, but writing this is cheering me up. Maybe I should wear one of these on days when I feel a bit snappy, to warn family and friends to tread carefully.

This really gorgeous photo from Andy McCurdy just caught my eye this morning. It looks like a fresh clear dewy morning. A new day with bright new possibilities around the corner. Beautiful!

Lesson 1 in how to be a stylish Spider lover: Go to CadillacCowboys shop and purchase one of these T-shirts. Lesson 2: wear it always. Lesson 3: Go back and buy a second T-shirt when the first one needs a wash.

For all the Fairy spider lovers, why not get a pair of eproductsales gorgeous spider web wings. I love all the wings in her shop but I think right now these ones are my favourite.

Lastly for today I picked this photo from Quixoticpixels, not only because it is such a stunning photo, but for it's title "Insufficient Camouflage". Just how perfect is that title? Stunning!

I don't really understand why so many people are fearful of spiders. They catch flies and other pesky insects and they create such amazing webs. I suppose because I live in the UK and we don't really have any dangerous spiders I've never really seen the point of being frightened of them. Maybe I would feel differently if I lived near ones that could paralyse me.


  1. I love those wings!
    I'm not really afraid of spiders, but not a huge fan of them either. Dad is extremely allergic to spider bites, so they didn't stay long in the house when they were found. The other day there was a spider the size of a 2 pound coin in the bathroom and I was told that was a small one here! o.0

  2. You're right, of course....don't know why they give me the willies.

  3. I have to admit, they scare the heck out of me..Husband got bit by one and he had quite a time of it..

  4. What an amazingly cool site!!! I scrolled down a ways and it's all too wonderful!!! Nice to meet you here.

  5. I'm afraid that I'm one of those people fearful of spiders. These ones though are all too cute to be afraid of. Yup, I very much like these spiders :)
