Really? Space Invaders? Space Invaders?!!!
And then he says: "Now we'll never have to worry about alien abduction."
Honestly, down deep inside, I am less than impressed by these comments. Not exactly what I was going for. I feel they make fun of my brilliant/amazing/unique/wonderful work-of-art-headboard. I mean, I know it's made of metal juice lids which I've furiously collected over the past ten years and all... And, yes, okay, a metal juice lid headboard may be a little bit out there. So what was I expecting, eh?
I guess I want him to love it.
The thing is, he's dead on. It does look like Space Invaders. It looks exactly like frickin' Space Invaders.
So then I sit back to consider this turn of events. Okay sure. I made a Space Invader headboard for our grownup master bedroom. But so what? My husband, Lo, loved playing Space Invaders when he was a kid. He loooved it! So I'm going to take his COMMENT and turn it into a COM-pli-MENT.
That's right, I've decided to love my Space Invader headboard too.

These flowers were a gift from Karen. I had met Karen a few days before as she walked into the thicket. We got to talking and soon discovered we share a few things in common, not the least of which is blogging.
Yep, as it happens, she is the lovely blogger behind Kingston Cam, a blog in which, through the art of photography, she discovers and discusses the beauty and uniqueness of Eastern Ontario and the Kingston area.
Then, a few days later, this collection of beautiful dried flowers materializes in the thicket in a cardboard box, a gift from Kingston Cam Karen with which to decorate the thicket.
So you see, no matter how obsessive you may think me, a wreath was inevitable.
This little thicket has a way of making things happen.

So, to welcome them to the new-and-improved thicket, I made them an entrance way. I took all their twigs, and sticks, and branches and made them this pretty arbor with matching twig hedges.
I wonder what they'll leave the next time they pay a visit...
