New Free Blog Backgrounds and Banners

I did it. Yuck. It was scary. I saw it scurrying across my tile floor trying to escape. It was a black, long legged, creepy spider. Did I mention it was itsy bitsy? I have to admit, I HATE bugs! BUT there's one caveat: I CAN'T kill them! I hate that sound of the crunch you hear when you stomp on them or smoosh them. Only one problem, when my husband isn't home, I have to be a 'big girl' and do it!!! Eeeeeew another one! I'm calling the bug man tomorrow morning...

Do you have the 'guts' to kill bugs?

On a prettier note, I just added a treasure trove of fancy images from our TCBOTB vault!!! They were starting to get dusty, so I shined them up, and made them available to all of you! These are some more beauties from our fabulous buddy Jacque from Creative Urges. Check out her blog. Remember all of the designs come from her collection of fabulous textures, and fabrics. A touch of vintage chic.

Here's a sweet sample:

Have a BUG-FREE day (hopefully)

Pin It!


  1. I do not mind bugs...but anything that is linked to the mammal line...that is a whole different story.

  2. I think I'm pretty ok with bugs except for ROACHES!!! especially those huge ones which can even fly. I'm terrified of them, so I have a can of bug spray handy at home (but it's never on hand when I want it) :)

  3. I can't stand the crunch either. I have to suck them up with my vacuum. Connor however would like most of them to be rescued and gently placed outside. Thank you grammy for teaching him that.

  4. Janiece - if I ever had a mouse or rat in my house I think I would throw a fit too. I'm right there with ya!

    KC - What a good idea with the bug spray. I might need to get some!

    Tammy - Connor is so funny! I love how he wants to save them! I've tried my vacuum in the past, but then I feel it slide up the hose. And that makes my blood curdle!!

    Glad to know I'm not the only one who is a 'bug-a-phobe' <---if that's a word. :)

  5. OH, spiders scare me...and I don't like the noise they make when they're being extinguished. It's all gross. That's why I make my dad get ride of the spiders and other creepy crawlies. Y uck.. I totally scream, too :) :)

    The new banners are really cute ;) :) I love vintage, junk, romantic, wh atever!!! It's all so very pretty :) :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather ;) :)

  6. I unfortunately am the bug exterminator in my house. Although, I think my family only acts afraid because they don't want to do it. LOL!

    I love your TCBOTB backgrounds currently use Moments in Time (Love it!). I just have a question and I couldn't figure out how to contact you. Regarding adding a link to my Etsy store on my blog or would that put me out of compliance with your terms? Sorry if this isn't the place to ask, or if you could direct me, that would be awesome. :) Thanks so much.

  7. Oh you took the words right out of my mouth. EWWWW! Yes BIG ugly fast Roaches are the worst...hence one of the many reasons I moved out of South Florida. But had my first scorpion encounter here in beautiful Arizona a few months that was surreal!
