A special visitor.

We had a special little visitor on our back deck last weekend. A little white toad with small black vein like coloring that almost looked like white marble. I had never seen a toad with this coloring before and there were two. Once we started taking the pics, the one shown here found a spot in the shade in our planter box.
Presenting our little white marble toad! Enjoy :)

Have a great weekend everyone.

Chris! my goodness! I love your Halloween tree-might those magical looking froggies find a home under the shade of your festive tree?

Many thanks for the kind remarks on my current auction-and bidding? oh my!

I'd love to see you create some paper-doll characters-I think your work would translate well to this art form. I'm making some this weekend!

Ornamentally yours,

Suzanne Urban

Hey Suzanne,

Thanks for leaving your FIRST comment! ;)

I like the paperdoll idea and what is funny, is Pennie Griff (vintagepennie) suggested that to me last year! Great minds think alike. I would need to work out the logistics on how to do them. I may surprise you all someday! Good luck with yours! :)

What a darling toad... I think you guys should name it and make sure you have some treats to feed it (I don't know what froggy treats are, but I'm sure you'll figure that out) What is the background that you have on the blog now, Spooky C.K? Looks very interesting when your blog first loads... Your blog is ALWAYS a great surprise!
