  • That? Scares me. *shivers*

    • Don’t be scared! It’s the random skeletal remains we CAN’T see on someone’s property that should cause potential fear. 😉

  • Love it! It would be better if it had horns, or maybe if you painted a lone star flag or some bluebonnets on it, but it is a start. LOL!

    • Hm. I posted a reply to this yesterday. I wonder what happened to it.

      That’s not my flowerbed, and I’m too afraid of a Texan wielding a shotgun to paint someone else’s flowerbed skull!

      My flowerbed doesn’t have any skulls in it. Well… not on the surface, anyway.

    Hi there, This post gave me the perfect opening for what I’ve been wanting to ask for awhile… Why did you guys move back to Texas? Has it been wonderful and met your expectations? Why did you guys move back to Texas? And why had you moved to Nashville in the first place?

    I think it’s probably bad etiquette to ask a blogger to post personal things when they haven’t on their own already…. so I’m sorry! But I’ve been reading your blog for a little over a year now and have been really curious about this ever since you wrote about going back…

    Even if you can’t/don’t respond – I am glad that you’re in a happier place for yourself!

    Kindly, Melissa

    • Hi, Melissa Ann! Thanks for reading. :)

      I’m totally fine with being asked personal questions. I’ll try to remember to write a blog post to answer yours in more detail sometime soon, but the answer in a nutshell is that we moved to Nashville so John could explore some career options (I didn’t want to, personally) and it was nice, but it never felt like home to either of us as the Austin area had, and we finally just felt like coming home. So John made it happen, and we are really, REALLY happy to be back.

      I’ll post the detailed story before too long. Thanks, Melissa!

  • I’ve never been a fan of skulls in my garden. It’s an Arizona thing, too. Now a well-placed femur? That’s a bone I can get behind.

  • Yeah, I totally need to move back home to Texas because I think that’s an awesome decoration for the yard. Suitably nestled in amongst the plants, of course.

    Wow. And to think I get annoyed when people up here have fake rabbits or deer in their yards…

  • I so want one now!

  • My dad must be part Texan. He has a long horn skull hanging on the eaves of his garage. Totally creepy.

  • Texas? There are areas of Texas where a woman is more likely to wear a bandolier than a bra.

  • I’m looking at this and thinking a nice fake human skull would go good in the garden. Maybe with a shiny jewel inside like The Rescuers.

  • Uhm I dunno, about skulls in my garden. Lol. I suppose I’d love anything that is green or has bright colors because it invigorates me but if I ever fulfill my dream of becoming a movie set designer, I’m sure I won’t miss the skull for the Western desert scenes! 😀
