The one with the spiderweb on the spider ceramics

A customer noticed this spider and her magnificent web in front of my display of Laura Zindel ceramics, also with a spider motif. Very cool. We (she and me) decided to leave it as a natural art installation, although I'm afraid another customer did not find it so interesting...
And here's the front of the pretty little thing.I took the first two pictures the other day, and last night as I was closing the sun hit her new web (below) just right and I spotted her again. I gently relocated her to the great outdoors.
This is a fabulous web, I stole this picture from my friend Nicole, who posted it on facebook. Shot in her front yard in Willow Glen, CA.
Thought you would enjoy a few more images that I captured a few years ago on the grapevine on the side of my cottage.

That is my shop and I can not believe I have never read into the book I sell enough to see that Baileys Home and Garden is one of the best places I have ever seen! Thanks you for introducing me to it, it's now my dream to visit it.

We freak so many people out with the big ole daddy long leg magnet we got at your shop a couple years ago.
