Rusty Cricket

 After we had breakfast at Theresa's, we wandered through The Rusty Cricket Gift Shop
 Gecko's Galore
 Diane's toes on the floor.... She bought this one because it's face looked like her dog Sammie, a Jack Russell, or so she said....
 Racoons

 AND.....ummm Whatevers.


 And all this was on the front PORCH.....
 Inside I found a Pink Glass Octopus Christmas ornament, if my tree were large enough I would have bought it ( I am blaming the poor quality of the photo on Low Light and NOT Photographers Skill)

I love the name Rusty Cricket, that alone would lure me into the shop. The crab with the bottle cap legs really caught my attention. That little pink octopus is adorable (store lighting, especially in small shops, is not a photographer's friend).

An interesting shop. I like the number 6 for eyes of the fly or whatever. The geckos are cute but I have too many real ones running around my house dropping pooh everywhere.

What a nice shop :-) I like the lizards [very colorful]. That pink octopus was nice too!
Hope you're having a good day!

I love stores like this one. The racoons are cute!

Remington said...

Very cool! Say, Beth wanted me to ask you what kind of camera you have. We have a Canon Power Shot SX10 IS and she is thinking about getting a new one....any suggestions?

RoeH said...

Man where's that shop because I think it might be worth a plane ticket. Love it! Misha in Tennessee is going to do a re-do on my new blog. We want to do a "Little Rascals" theme sortakinda. So we will see what she does. She think I oughta name it Spanky because of the little kid in the Rascal movies. Can't decide. I never did have a huge following anyway. I think I had 73 and 12 or so were the actual readers. So it's not like anybody will miss me.

Your post makes me want to grab a girlfriend and go out for the afternoon!

I don't know where else to put this so I'll say it here. I really love your new blog header.

This shop certainly has some unique -- gifts. I've ever seen an octopus Christmas ornament before. I really like the welcome sign.

Oh my,this place looks fascinating. No definitely not photographers error,the light is to blame.

Scott said...

Oh that pesky low light situations. . . Looks like a fun little shop overflowing with creativity.

photowannabe said...

This is definitely my kind of place too.
I just love the do-dads everywhere.
Very clever bottle cap crab.
I think you should have gotten the octopus ornament anyway. There has got to be a place to hang that anytime of the year. Terrific sun-catcher.

"Auntie" sezzzzzz... said...

YOu left that pink glass octopus? You left it? Oh couldn't you just hang it somewhere? Think how gorgeous she would look, illuminated and reflected on your lovely nook!!!!!

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...

I'm not one to buy on impulse. I'm not. But oh that adorable pink octopus!!!!!!!! -sigh-

Rose said...

Boy, I would like to take a glance around that place...of course it isn't the photographer's skills.

In my case I always blame it on the cheap lens I have...and I swear some of the time I honestly think it is.

Cool shop ... where's it at?

Ann said...

What a cool name for a shop. The name alone would make me want to go in and look around. Some interesting things there too
