If you have been diligently reading my blog (you better be) you would know that I just love to piss off my neighbors. I know, not very neighborly, but oh so much fun. Besides, it seems like it has become sort of a running joke in the neighborhood. What will Jane do next? Most of them get a good laugh out of it since we do take good care of our yard, but there are a few that are not so thrilled. That’s mainly why I do it. If they laughed and enjoyed it I’d get bored.
Everyone has seen the pink yard flamingos and a few have even seen the skeleton flamingos, but now a couple of artists selling under the name Chris and Janes Place on Etsy have come up with their own twist. Zombie Gnomes feeding on one of those oh so tacky pink flamingos. They are hand casted, hand painted and sell for $55. They have been getting so many orders for these that they are a little behind in production, but so worth the wait. I am so excited to get mine. Now I just need to think of a great way to reveal it to the neighbors

Circling Ghosts

Today I found an awesome new decoration for your front yard. They are Circling Ghosts that hang from a tree attached to a fan. I really want to do this one, but the trees in our front yard are not even close to big enough. I’m going to have to put Scary Hubby on it. He’s a technical genius. I know he’ll find a way to make it happen. I can just imagine how great they would be floating around our tombstones. If you want to make it just click HERE. It sounds pretty easy if you already have a big tree in your yard. The only thing would be if you don’t have an old ceiling fan lying around. I did see some really cheap ones (around $20) at Home Depot a while back. I bet if you look around or ask your friends you can probably find one. This guy bought the ghosts at KMart, but I would probably make these myself. I’ve made many ghosts over the years, so I think I can handle these. Do me a favor? If you are going to make this, make sure the ghosts are a realistic size. I hate mini ghosts and other crappy props like that. There is nothing scary about a teeny tiny 12″ ghost. Anyway, I’m so excited to do this one! I just hope we can figure it out in time for this year. Always looking for new ways to freak out the neighbors. Do you think they’d mind if I left them up all year?

Alien Gnome Bandits

Alien Gnome BanditsSomeone pointed out these Alien Gnome Bandits to me a while back and I just love them. The only problem is they remind me of something and I just can’t put my finger on it. It’s probably a movie, but could be a TV show. All I can remember is that there are some little people or trolls or tiny monsters taking away a gnome from someones yard and they are carrying it exactly like these guys. They are laughing and snickering while they run away with it. This is driving me crazy! I know a short ride…yada yada yada. I know it’s something I have seen recently, though. If anyone has an idea of what I am remembering please, I beg you, let me know. Regardless they are just hilarious. They were designed by Utah artist Fred Conlon. He uses recycled and found metal that will rust over time to make these weather safe guys. The regular one for $49.95 is 8″ tall, but there is also a large one at 15″ tall available for $149.95. A little steep, I admit, but so worth it for the laugh you’ll get every time you leave your house.
