Lizards and Gecko's

I have small collection of lizards.... these are a few of my 'treasures' for this week....

This handsome fellow has appeared on my blog before... my SIL made it by wool felting.... beautifully done and clever beads etc added to finish it off .....


This is the largest of my lizards.. I left the light switch in the picture to indicate his size
Quite a handsome wooden fella given to me by my daughter


These are two beautiful ceramic gecko's who were given to me by a friend 


I found this stocky chap at a craft fair.... he sits at my kitchen counter


this rusty old character came with me from Zimbabwe - a friend of mine ran a little business making these


This is a Tuatara from New Zealand (a reptile but not considered a lizard)
Made of metal... good and solid


MIL brought me this handsome lizard from Zimbabwe
beautifully made with wire and beads


Melody is hosting Tuesday's Treasures
and I'm off  HERE to see what others have picked out today
she has gone a bit Gothic today and found some gargoyles

.... whiltst widget is having his snooze
I'm doing a bit of experimenting today with this....


any guesses
here's a clue


Wishing you all a Treasureful Tuesday

  3. Oh it's so hard to choose which one I love best. I love the felted one and the rusty one. Oh and the beaded one. I have a family of the real thing in my TV area clicking and clacking away most nights.
