I had a friend who was really creeped out by slugs and snails. Yet, knowing my love for all things with eye stalks, she was still kind enough to get me a wind-up snail. The one she gave me is the lighter colored one, the one furthest from the camera. I doubt she’ll ever see this, but in case she does: Don’t worry, the knight definitely wins! The snails have been defeated!

Snail Attack!

Late knight snack

Avenged!

Don’t worry – The knight’s injuries were only minor, and he went on to fight many more battles.

At first I had the plane landing in Jurassic Park where a T-Rex almost instantly finds them…

But then I saw Owen’s dragon laying on the ground and realized that while the plane is mid flight a dragon comes from overhead and eats their pilot.

I recently got a set of two crusader knights from Playmobil – a Templar knight and a Teutonic knight. They sit on my desk and when I’m away and practice their fighting.

We gave my son some dinosaurs for his birthday. Who would have known that I’d have just as much fun with them.

I decided that my previous themed blog just didn’t work. I didn’t like that information public. I didn’t like it to stick around for long, either. Facebook is the best place for that kind of stuff.

So now I’m going to change this blog to a mostly photo blog, maybe calling it “Still Plays With Toys” or something like that. I’ve really gotten into creating scenes with Owen’s toys, and my own, and photographing them. So, this will be place for me to post those. I’ll probably be posting a lot at first since I’ve been collecting them. After that it might be more sporadic – whenever I get inspiration.
