Good morning and happy three-day weekend! Hopefully you get Monday off! 🙂 I am going to take “Labor” day to heart and try to get a little ahead this weekend. Or – you know…at least caught up! ROFL!
I’m planning to go live tonight at 7pm Eastern over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page – I’ve got a “cool” card to share with you! Take a sneaky peek!
I think – hope! – you’ll like it so…please come take a look, okay? 🙂
Tonight. 7pm Eastern. Right here!

Finn Fan Fix
So….today’s Finn Fan Fix is not about Finn.
Instead – I am going to give you some learnin’.
Cuz I’m generous like that.
CAUTION: if you have an overwhelming fear of spiders….abort abort abort. Scroll back up.
Still with me?
Meet…Argiope (pronounced “are GUY – o – pe”) aurantia. AKA the Garden Argiope or Black and Yellow Argiope. Or…more poetically – the Golden Orb Weaver!
He (she?) wasn’t in the garden on Friday morning but had spun its web by the time we fed at dinner.
I kept trying to get a “better’ picture…thinking this was his/her bottom side.
Pretty good view of all the legs and stuff but…I was looking for a face.
It’s remarkably difficult to get a good photo with an iPhone camera when you’re too askeered to duck under the plants to get closer. When you have to do full zoom on the telephoto – you gotta hold really still. Apparently not my thing!
So – I gave up.
I googled him and discovered that Argiope aurantia actually means “guilded silver face”. Which means that my first picture…
…WAS the picture I needed.
The things you learn!
So…he sort of looks like my ponies when they’re wearing their fly masks, don’t you think? 😉
Big belly and all! 😉
