Meet Toady, the large toad who’s lived in the side garden for the past four years. On Sunday, he was a bit cold and buried himself in the dirt to stay warm. He has a special water dish I keep filled that he likes to sit in most of the summer. 🙂
Known for quality, beauty and creativity, glass and jewellery designer René Lalique (1860-1945) created this stunning crystal eagle's head hood ornament in the late 1920s. I photographed it on a 1930 Cord L-29 Phaeton Sedan at the recent Fleetwood Country Cruize-in fundraising event.
