      A beautiful Royal purple spider to tickle our senses !~
    2. LaurenRedmond LaurenRedmond, 2 years ago
      This is so cool and perfect for Halloween- he's perched on the pumpkin waiting for an unsuspecting fly and because he's near enough the same colour as it he's able to blend in perfectly!
    3. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 2 years ago
      Both are really neat and a nice display!

      Does the mark say Czecho?
    5. nutsabotas6 nutsabotas6, 2 years ago
      Both pieces are beautiful, but that spider brooch is stunning!! I agree with themuse, looks like Czecho. :)
    6. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 2 years ago
      Jenni, you know how I feel about red, so your
      beautiful pumpkin is #1 in my book.
    7. AnnaB AnnaB, 2 years ago
      I wish all spiders in my house were like this one! Then I wouldn't mind them LOL
    8. OldeAsDirt OldeAsDirt, 2 years ago
      That is both creepy and beautiful!

      Thanks Phil for the super nice compliment, you always say the greatest things & make me smile :)

      Lauren, you totally got what I was trying to convey here, the lurking spider on his 'punkin' waiting for his prey! I'm so pleased you enjoyed my little Halloween combo & totally appreciate your fab comment

      Thanks MrsT for very nice compliment & appreciating my Halloween staging here, the best thing was getting to show the spider's rhinestone colors, as they looked black under regular lights - it needed kitchen sunlight + LED lights to show color

      Thanks Ken and themuse for IDing this Czech-made spider, I can see it now & posted the mark upside down as the seller did, who tried to pass this off to me as a Hobe mark (well guess it worked, I bought it lol). Ken your compliments are primo as always

      Eileen I am really happy you liked the spider & didn't hate it as I know how you feel about crawlies like snakes - in real life I'm not a spider lover esp those huge garden spiders, but this one is nicely made & I love the prong-set rhinestones on such a small item, quite intricate. Yes I hoped the red glass pumpkin would appeal to you, my red loving friend! Great words and fab compliments, thanks a mil

      Right Anna, nothing worse than waking up in the morning and seeing a big house spider on the wall - hate those daddy long legs most! Wonderful comment my friend, thank you

      OldeasDirt I so agree, this spider jewel was beautifully lit in the seller's ad, I thought it was both creative and a designer piece (wrong there), so I ordered it a year or so ago, when the pkge arrived it looked like a real black spider & when I held it the feathery legs creeped me out & I dropped it! Since then I've come to like it alot as a Halloween piece, it always gets a big reaction

      The Halloween loves are super appreciated

      Loooovely spider! The pumpkin is kind of cute too :-D
    11. Celiene Celiene, 2 years ago
      It almost looks like you could slip a little piece of scented cloth in his hollow body and make it a vinaigrette! LOVE him!
    12. buckethead, 2 years ago
      Awesome Arachnid and Cucurbit!
      Happy Halloween :)
    13. Newfld Newfld, 2 years ago
      Pascale I just knew you would like my spider, it's so real looking, and I love your great compliments

      Thanks Celiene for the super creative comment, spidey would look good on a vinaigrette bottle, preferably pumpkin vinaigrette!!

      Buckethead I'm glad you enjoyed my arachnid & cucurbit display here, wonderful compliments, thanks so much & have a happy

      Thanx 4 the love & a great Halloween to all

    14. AnnaB AnnaB, 2 years ago
      Oh no, I think daddy long legs are cute! Sometimes i rescue them from troubles their long legs get them into LOL It's the other kinds, like Sac spiders, that make me cringe, but i know they have a reason and purpose, so when I can, I just take them outside on a piece of paper. Ticks, on the other hand, i could never like even as a gold jewel encrusted with diamonds and emeralds sitting atop of a Faberge Egg! =)
    15. Newfld Newfld, 2 years ago
      Anna it's so nice to hear that you don't like to kill spiders, my very humanitarian grandma also used to catch them on paper & throw them back outside alive. Whenever I see any bug inside (except ladybugs) I get very distressed thinking about potential bites, & grab an all natural citrus cleaner with a stream spray so it floods them on contact & at least they don't suffer. Outside, I never bother them, as you say they have a purpose in our ecosystem

      Thanks so much guys for the love & happy Halloween
    16. Newfld Newfld, 2 years ago
      Thanks & Happy Halloween Thomas, always totally appreciate the very kind love
    17. themuse themuse, 2 years ago
      I ignore any spiders in my home as long as they aren't brown recluses. They are the sign of a healthy ecosystem. Plus they catch flies ;)

      Your little guy is really cute, and being czech makes him all the more special
    18. Newfld Newfld, 2 years ago
      Thank you Jennifer for the Halloween luv, hope you had a good one

      Thanks themuse for your nice comment, good to hear from another compassionate spider person. For myself, I'll take the jewelry one & leave the live ones outdoors lol! Very glad you enjoyed my rhinestone arachnid too, thanks so much for the kind words
    19. valentino97 valentino97, 2 years ago
      I LOVE this spider!!
    20. Newfld Newfld, 2 years ago
      Lol Mary I thought you would appreciate this, it is so totally real looking I almost screamed when I opened the box - it even has feathery legs! Thanks for the super comment & luv
    21. Roycroftbooksfromme1, 2 years ago
      Hey jenni ... you sure its not a tick ...hmmm lol, cute cute cute....'=))
    22. Newfld Newfld, 2 years ago
      Very possibly Roycroft, it is surely a buggy bug! Thanks for the super compliment & bug alternative

      Thanks a bunch for loving this
    23. Newfld Newfld, 2 years ago
