Move Over Ebay No More Etsy Shop Frogs On Sale

I love Frogs

I love Frogs I Crochet Frogs And Other Nature Beings For A Hobby. I Used To Make Frog Rugs And Sell Them In An Etsy Shop. I Love All The Handcrafted Items Etsy Has To Offer, But They Have All This Favorite B.S. And Other Games You Have To Play To Get Noticed..Girl-Frogs

And Then...

You Have To Pay Etsy Listing Fees And/or PayPal Sales Fees. eBay Also Has This Practice. No More Middle Man To Raise The Price Of Our Frogs.

This Frog Rug Is Looking For A Home, But She Is Not listed Anywhere, I Made Her With A Lot Of Love. WHY Not, Tell You About Her. She Was Made For A Little Girl That Passed Before This Present Ever Reached Her. 🙁

When I look At Her It Is A Reminder Of All The Princesses Out There Who Would Love To Sit In Her Froggy Arms And Read A Book. You Can Inquire By Email If You Want To Take Her home. She Is The First Girl Frog I Crocheted. Isn't She Beautiful?

I Can Find Us All The Frogs We Want. From My Handcrafted Rugs To Large Handcrafted Frog Garden Statues. This Blog Today Is To Highlight All Frogs From The Smallest To The largest.

They Are Fascinating Little Creatures With A Personality All Their Own.

Scientifically Speaking It's Anura Here Today

I Love The Mystical Little Spirit Of Frogs And Toads Don't You?

Although Toads Seem To Thrive In The Land They Like frogs Start Off As A Tadpole In Water.

In The Mystical Dimensions, WE See Fairies Riding On Frogs And Toads All The Time. It's Their Ride Man, Got To Get Around Somehow, That's How Some Fairies Roll. Do You Have Any Frog facts You Could Share or Are Just Amazed By?

There Are So Many Online Stories About Frog Facts And Stories, I Could Read For Days. Great Fairy Garden Ideas Come When You Read About Toad And Frog Facts And Create A Habitat They Flourish In. You Want To Welcome These Visitors To Your Garden They Are Such A Benefit To The Fairy Gardens Community.




In My Secret Garden

In My Secret Garden I  Mostly Run Across Big Fat Garden Toads, But There Are A Lot Of Small Green Tree Frogs In North Carolina And They Like To Stick To My Windows At Night. They Occasionally Get In The House, But I Try To Get Them Back To Safety.

These Little Frogs Don't Need to drink water they absorb it through their Skin, So They Do Need To Access Water To Stay Alive. They Eat A Diet Of Insects, Not All Bugs Are Good In Your Garden.

ToadsToads

These Little Creatures Are A Great Addition To Your Garden. They Are More Of A Land Species And Don't Need To Be So Close To Water. Their Skin Is Drier Almost Camouflage Color Of Dirt. I Don't Know How Many Times Over The Years I Have Stumbled Upon Them And Not Noticed Until I Almost Step On Them.

I Find Them All Over The Place In My Early Spring-Clean Ups. Still, Sleepily Hiding Borrowed In The Garden Beds. I Try To Avoid Them Burrowing In My Vegetable Beds Because I Use A Tiller And I Don't Want To Hurt Them, Sometimes They Like To Play Dead Scaring Me Thinking I Hurt Them, Little Buggers.

home-is-where-your-heart-isSo I Try To Make Them Safe Spots In The Garden Flowers And Surrounding Areas. If You Leave A Flower Pot Upside Down Hidden In Your Garden Flowers It Makes Your Fairy Gardens Come Alive With Life, And It Also Helps Keep Your Little Froggy Folks Safe.

They Like To Hide In A Cool Shady Moist Dark Spot And Will Burrow Down Under These Pots If You Hide Some Around Your Garden I Have Even Used Broken Pieces From Large Clay Pots Turned Over Like A Bridge.frog-decorations

Some Folks Like To Get Fancy And Decorate These Pots So It Is Also A Fun Craft If You Want To Make A Toad House. Great Way To Have Fun With Your Kids And Get Them Interested In Garden Life.

You Really Do Not Need To Purchase Much if you are Creative. You Will Need Some Kind Of Dome To Turn Upside Down For Them To Burrow Under. It Can Be ANYTHING! My Favorite Is A Clay Pot, But You Could Use An Old Deep Glass Bowl, An Extra Large Coffee Cup, An Old Coffee Can(The Metal Ones Tend To Age Rapidly Under The Moist Dark Conditions. I Like Staying With Glass.

The Next Thing You Will Need Really Depends On You, Your Budget And What You Already Have And How You Want To Decorate You Toad Habitat. Even How Much Ttme You Have.

It Could Be A Quick Project With just a little paint if you enjoy painting. Or You Can Do Your Children's Hand-Prints, if They Are Young And Want To Make Keepsakes.Frogs-and-toads

You Could Add To That If You Had A Saucer To Turn Upside Down For A "Roof". There Are So Many Ideas.

You Could Paint A Face On It And Put The Drip Bowl(Saucer) On The Top And Plant A Small Variety Of Hair (moss).

If You Feel Like Taking A Different Route You Could Decorate It With A Glue Gun And Some Shells Or Pretty Glass Beads. You May Need To Grout The Beads. This Is Also A Good Way To Hide A Crack If You Insisted On Trying To Make A Hole For A Door. That Really Is Cosmetic, They Do Not Need It To Get In Their Frog Home. hahaha Paint A Door If You Really Want One.

They Burrow In The Earth During The Hot Day And Know How To Get In. But You Are Getting My Point. Make Your Toad House.

Now We Find The Perfect Spot In Our Fairy Gardens. I Like To Hide Mine On The Outskirts Of My Flower Garden. I Don't Till This Often And It Keeps Them Safe From Myself Along With Other Predators.

Find Your Spot, A Shady Little Hide Out And Push It Firmly Into The Soil So It Does Not Tip Over OR Be Turned Over By A Nosy Cat Or The Like. After You Do All This You Can Entertain The Thought Of Some Kind Of Water Source.

Remember, Your Little Friends Still Need To Access Water. Plus, If You Want To Multiply Your Toad Family The Tadpoles Still Needs Water To Begin Their Life.

I Have A Huge Garden And It Would Take Me A Long Time To Handcraft All The Toad Homes I think About, I Just Do Not Have The Time.Board laid flat

I Leave My Toad Family Water Sources And Many Items They Turn Into Homes, Even A Small Board Laid Flat Will Attract The Nature Now That I No Longer Have Time Or Children To Make Such Fun DIY Projects I Just Make Sure To Leave Them A Home And Decorate The Whole Community Within The Fairy Gardens. Here Are Some Of My Favorite Of That ANURA Family Exclusively For You.

    Oh that's the kind of frogs I like!! I saw so many tasteless garden decorations, so I started to dislike all of them in general. Your frogs forced me to rethink my prejudice. Those are so cute. I like the idea to hide small toad or frog statuette in the garden, so you could find them spontaneously while walking around.

    I’ll consider as a present such element of decor for my mother-in-law. She has a great sense of humor, so I'm sure, she’ll accept with a smile my favorite of all your frogs- the grumpy one.

      It's a frog thing. I like him a lot too, but the one reading I just love. hahaha I am so embarrassed you found my blog before I could finish my edit. I had computer trouble and went into a panic knowing it was not edited and I would not be home all day to fix it. I am going to do that same idea with all the little nature spirits. I think butterflies may be next. Thank you so much for overlooking my Non-Edited blog. With that thought, I best get to it.
