Hanging Out

Outside my window this anole lizard has been hanging out. I was finally able to get a shot of him in his threatening stance with his throat or dewlap puffed out. He bobs his head up and down and then he puffs out his dewlap pouch to warn other males from his territory. The pouch is also puffed out to attract females.

This is one of my hand pinched meditation bowls just listed in my Etsy Shop. I sold another one of these to the same customer, she said they make great gifts.

My salt and pepper server was featured in a Etsy treasury called 'Out of the Salt Mines'. I never knew there were so many different types of salt containers.

After the electricity went out the other day I unplugged the kiln. Later I replugged it in and started the firing again. Everything in the kiln looks fine. I didn't unload yet, I'll do that today. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.


  1. Great lizard photo! It takes a lot of patience to get a lot of shot like that.
    Congratulations on the Etsy recognitions....nice salter.
    BTW like the folded basket from your last post.

  2. What a funny little guy * smile *. Your salt shaker is so nice.


  3. that lizard is just a beauty! I love watching them. I have some small ones in my garden right now just running around and jumping at me. they are so funny.

  4. You always get such great photos - flowers, bugs, lizards, everything! Love to visit!

  5. Kudos to the little lizzard. May his territory always be free of intruders and full of ladies.

  6. My kids had anoles for pets when they were young. They were kept in a terrarium-scaped aquarium. They provided wonderful entertainment for our cats!

  7. what makes it an 'oil spot glaze?' you just put glass in the center on top of the glaze, right? beautiful bowl!

  8. Hi Suzi, thanks, hope those folds in the basket/purse don't crack. Ha.

    Hi Elna, thanks, aren't those lizards cute, if you click your tongue at them they will turn their heads and look at you. Ha.

    Hi Meredith, thanks, we have some real tiny ones around here less than an inch long.

    Hi Julia, thanks, they keep me entertained. Ha.

    Hi Joanne, thanks, yes he is really quite a good looking fellow.

    Hi Ms. Sparrow, thanks, oh my cats look out the window at these too the lizard can't see them and they can see the lizard.

    Hi Amy, thanks, the mottled appearance is called oil spotting, much like if you put oil on water and it beads up.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
