I've Been Invaded!!



I've been invaded...not aliens, worse, much worse!! I know, I sound hysterical...I am!!! Ok, I'll explain so read on, all will eventually become clear. But first the freebie!!

Today's freebie is called a Little Dutch paper Pack. I named it that as it reminds me of some tiles I saw in Holland. I was playing around with brushes and this is the result. I hope some one likes them...I do!

You can download the Little Dutch Paper Pack here

I didn't post this yesterday as 4shared was being a pain again. What has been wrong with it these past couple of days? Monday I just posted my blog and after that I couldn't use 4shared until Tuesday morning and then by evening it was no joy again,  I couldn't get the download link as it was on the blink again. Also if you didn't manage to download Mondays linked frame, it wasn't the link it was 4shared!!

And the invasion!

I have a beautiful wisteria over the back of the house, covering the back wall and over my the double doors from my dinning room, it also goes under my son's fact it's...big! The wisteria is no's the visitors in it that are!! Eeek!!

They are nasty little and not so little caterpillars, not only are they creepy but they're hairy!! Take a look! These two are little ones! Any ideas?



These little monsters have been hiding in the wisteria where their lovely mum left them and now they have all hatched or what ever they do and are crawling everywhere..not to mention eating my wisteria!!

They're energetic little chaps too.....there I was having one of my rare deep clean sessions and I looked up and there it was...crawling across my son's bedroom ceiling...the cheek! Luckily he was out or he would have thought I had planted it for revenge over the moth thing. Not content with that..I nearly died when I flopped down in a garden chair this afternoon to take a well earned rest for five minutes and felt my hand itch, or was it twitch? Well anyway...there he was...or she, not too sure on that one, crawling from the chair onto me. and proceeding up my arm.....double Eeek!! It's a good job that the neighbours already know I'm insane!! So now the first person who opens a window is in serious trouble!!

So tomorrow I need to ring Charlotte..she'll know what to do with them. Anything creepy crawly and natural that girl has stored somewhere in her head. I just hope that she knows how to get rid of them as some are starting to go on to the next stage and pupate!! My god..what are they going to change into just doesn't bear thinking about!!!!! I swear to you there are hundreds of the things, they pear out of the foliage and almost stick their little tongues out saying "ha ha you can't reach me!" and it's true they are way above this is war!!

Now, I'll concentrate...promise, unless one climbs onto me..I'm getting paranoid!! Every tickle and I am convinced it's them.

Well, I'm off to work!!

See you all tomorrow and take care and I hope the sun shines for you!

OMG, those are the strangest looking caterpillers I've ever seen. Living in Hawaii there aren't too many "strange" critters like on the Mainland. But hey, I wonder what they turn into? Hmmm, it'd be interesting to know what they are called and what they become. Anyway, sorry they creep you out, I'd feel the same way, LOL. Thanks for the pretty papers - and leavin some LUV - aloha!!

June please take care, Do not get them on your skin or near your eyes, I was told that they can cause a serious reaction. Mind you I will believe anything anyone tells me, but it best to take care. they will and do grow into beautiful moths, or butterflies can't remember. I will find out more if I can. I had them about 5 years ago, but they have never returned, although I will still not walk under the infected tree to this day!! Mwah x

That's a tussock moth catepillar. They morph into one UGLY moth, just to warn you! And yes, their hairs do cause irritation when touched. Fortunately they don't live that long! Good luck with these ugly buggers!
