Sunday Snap!

Do you like my new statue in the garden? As you can see, he's talking to someone on his mobile phone! Hee Hee!


Do you think I should get a little fig leaf for him?!

No, no fig leaf [do they make them that small?]giggle and the cell phone comment made me laugh. SO TRUE! It is exactly what he looks like.

Why are you up so early my friend?

Bethe77 said...

No leave him just the way he is. I like him.
A cell phone that is truly funny! Though when you said that and I llloked at him I thought yea maybe...?
Blessings

Duncan D. Horne said...

No! I think one should be able to appreciate the full workmanship of this nice little statue!

Greetings from blistering hot Malaysia!

Thisisme. said...

Skippy = Hee Hee! Yes, it would have to be a teeny fig-leaf. I wasn't up early, I'm afraid. I just had this post scheduled!!

Bethe - It just looked to me as if he was on his mobile phone, so I couldn't resist a photo!

Duncan - yes, I agree! We should be able to appreciate the full workmanship!! Gosh, I hope you mum and dad are going to be able to cope with the heat!

IWasn'tBloggedYesterday - not too much at all! Hee Hee!!

HA,ha! Love the little man - definitely he should remain untouched and in his natural state! :)

lyndylou said...

ha ha that was funny! I don't think you get fig leaves that small ;) was it cold yesterday, is that his excuse? LOL

orchid said...

My Dear sweet Lady,

Haha, Ditto♡♡♡ I have the same opinion with the others.

I think we all need someone to talk to, don't we? What or who is he having nice chat with cellar-phone♫♫♫
Love, xoxo Orchid.

Sush - I know, so many comments there! It takes me almost as long to answer comments as it does to write my blog posts! Hee Hee!! Glad you liked the summer house. I still can't work out how you made the connection with G-T!!! Thank you so much for your sunny thoughts my friend, but I think rain is forecast :( I shall be so disappointed for my beautiful daughter. I am trying to stay calm!!

Gawgus-things - it looks as if someone has made the connection!! Don't know how! I will leave the little cherub as he is.

lyndy-lou - actually, it was quite warm when I took the photo. Hee Hee!!

Orchid - hallo my Japanese friend! I am wondering how you get the little hearts and musical notes onto your blog comments. They look very sweet! Yes, I wonder who my little cherub is talking to?! Sending warmest wishes to you.

Odie Langley said...

Either a fig leaf or some miracle grow (LOL). Have a happy Sunday. It is rainy here in NC

EvaMarie Sa said...

I like it a lot, and you should just leave him as he is. It actually does look like he is talking on the phone...funny.

Thisisme. said...

Shady - Miracle grow! I like that one! Yes, it's dull here in Devon today, with rain forecast :(

EvaMarie - I know, it wasn't until I brought him home from the garden centre that I noticed that he was talking on the phone!

Mountain Mama said...

Oh, such a cute little guy to add to your beautiful garden! I don't think a fig leaf is necessary, unless he calls you up on that cell of his and asks for one. Then you'd better run right out and get one for him, I think! LOL

I LOVE your new header picture.
So amazingly lovely! We had roses that color in our garden back home and I sure miss them and their wonderful scent.

Happy Sunday to you! :)

EmptyNester said...

This gave me such a good laugh! You are too funny!

Thisisme. said...

Mountain Mama - lovely to see you here today my friend. I'll wait to see if the cherub calls me to ask for a fig leaf then!! That's a climbing rose which is all over the side of our house at the moment.

EmptyNester - thank you. I think you are funny too!!!

Shady Del Knight said...

Goodness gracious, Thisisme! Until you told me otherwise I thought that statue was the entertainer for the hen party having arrived for the gig a few days early! (LOL) I love statuary and that one is a fine addition to your layout. How's the extended weather forecast looking?

PencilGirl said...

Wow!! That's the cutest looking statue I've ever seen! :D :D
And he really does look like he's speaking on his cell phone! :D
Don't bother with fig leaves though.. :P

Thisisme. said...

Shady - lovely to see you here on this Sunday dear friend. LOL! I would expect a little bit more than that for the hen party!!!! Forecast for Saturday is showing rain (or showers) at the moment, but I have high hopes that all the positive thoughts from my little bloggy friends will pull us through!! Did you see Alfred over at G-T's blog today??

PencilGirl - lovely to see you here again today my friend! Glad you liked my little cherub and, yes, I won't bother with the figleaf!!!

Jackie said...

He might need something in the winter to keep it warm!! Jackie in Surrey

Thisisme. said...

Jackie - that's a very good idea! I hadn't thought of that. Perhaps I'll knit him a little something!!

Kristina said...

What a cute little fellow!!! Perfect edition to the garden! I don't think a fig leaf is necessary one bit! If you do knit him something for the winter - make sure it's brightly colored and draws just a little bit of attention. LOL - that will make it even more worth it! :-) then post a photo of course!

Bouncin' Barb said...

He's harmless in the buff. I like him. That full bloom rose up top is absolutely breathtaking. I want to come visit your garden (and you of course).

Grammy Goodwill said...

All these comments are so funny. I don't have anything as funny to add, just that I laughed out loud when I read your cell phone comment. He was ahead of his time, wasn't he?

Thisisme. said...

Kristina - OK! I'll have to try to remember that when winter is upon us here in England, and take a photo to show you all!

Bouncin'Barb - I would LOVE it if you came to visit the garden (and ME!!). The rose in my header pic at the moment is a rambling rose, which goes all up the side of the house. Still in bloom at the moment.

Grammy Goodwill - there you are - you WERE funny, saying that he was ahead of his time. LOL!

flowers on my table said...

Very cute, I think you should leave him commando style! Love Linda x

Thisisme. said...

Linda - Hi! Do hope you're feeling okay and not too sore at all. Commando style it is then!!

Stella said...

No fig leaf. He looks just like some naughty little boys I've seen. Just think when the statue was first cast they probably didn't know what a cell phone was. Cute post.

kneesandpaws said...

hahahahaha! Have you noticed that all the ladies said no to the fig leaf! Well, Duncan said no too...
I think a leaf would totally ruin the effect. Your garden is like Eden anyway!
I so needed this laugh today. Thank you for sharing your sense of humor!

Thisisme. said...

Stella - I agree with you about the naughty little boys! He is very well modelled I think, but very old. (Bit like me! Hee Hee!!).

kneesandpaws - yes, it's funny how no-one wanted the fig leaf put in place, isn't it?! I'm glad it made you smile today my dear friend.

Belle said...

I would like to see him in a Tarzan loincloth, just to see if he looked like Tarzan's son, Boy.
He is a beautiful cherub!

becca said...

aw how cute reminds me of my little chuncky monkey running around Nekked.

Teresa - in the Middle Side of Life said...

love the little statue! i agree - it does look like he's on his cell phone. i wouldn't change him either... don't all little boys like to go without clothing? hahaha!

LV said...

That is just going a little too far, when a stature is using a cell phone. Yes, he definitely needs a leaf. You have such fun post.

Chatty Crone said...

"Leaf' him that way - it will give people something to talk about!

Susan said...

I know-late again, but I had seen this and needed a closer look. I agree with most of your other blogmates...no fig leaf. He's very attractive Thisisme.
