Pat Kennedy - Your Washington, DC Real Estate Connection


Wordless Wednesday: Ribbit. Ribbit.

Let's call this one "Lipstick on a Frog".

This fellow is amazing.  He lives along the side of a road on Bainbridge Island - it's the other Washington!   Some neighbors did this, creating a frog out of a couple of rocks stacked one on the other.  You might also notice the little creature in back of the frog.  Not sure exactly what he is.  But he sure is cute.

Patricia, that's fun.  Looks like the possibility of another emerging on the right some day.

Pat, great that you could capture and share.  Now, if they gave them sound effects....

Patricia - Well your right about saying "Rivit."  We know that, because mid-sized frogs go "rivit."  Little ones, go "reedeep" and BIG frogs go "romp romp."  I know that because my 6 year old granddaughter told me so.

That's funny.  Seems almost spooky if you're in the wrong frame of mind, like say, after a night out with your friends, or having had a large dose of painkillers in the ER for a broken limb.

What other title could this little guy possiby have? Nice bit of whimsey in a beautiful area. I'm enjoying seeing the Seattle area through your eyes. Have you had time to visit with any of the Active Rain buddies in the area?

My mom loves frogs, but I don't think she's ever seen one with quite as much lipstick!  I think you need to go spray paint a bikini top on that thing!  LOL

It seems I'm the only one to comment so far who thinks the rocks would be a lot more attractive unpainted.  Does anyone else agree? 

Posted by Kirsten Lindquist, Realtor - Sonoma Wine Country (Pacific Union International) about 10 years ago

Pat, Makes me think of the painted index finger and thumb faces.  Fun!

He ALMOST blends into the landscaping. Some creative folks on that side of the coast!

It's such a great display of someone's art work I could really drive off the road viewing this one.

Great work by the neighbors! Really creative and funny, just what a community needs.

Patricia - The little critter into the left looks like a lady bug from where I sit ..... the gal on the right is what I would call a "Blue Ghost" , like some members here in the rain  ..... only She is a little on the green side ..... perhaps from the thought of kissing the frog to see if it really is a prince

How funny.  We have a paper mache elephant, about 7 feet tall, in our neighborhood.  He got it on Craigslist.  My hubby says he's glad we live in a niehgborhood where someone who would have that lives.

I was thinking the little guy on the left looks like a ladybug, too!  These are absolutely adorable - it's the "good" kind of graffiti!

Rabbit, Rabbit, Gulp! Looks like he just swallowed a fly!

We have a big rock along the freeway that people always paint. It reminds me of that one but it changes often.

Posted by Steven L. Smith, Bellingham WA Home Inspector (King of the House Home Inspection, Inc.) about 10 years ago

That's cute. The thing behind the frog looks like a lady bug.

Hey Pat, this is such a great piece of art work, use what is already available and just add to the concept!

I find it very interesting when I see a big rock and someone else sees a Frog.

Amazing how someone could see the art in rocks and make it look so great

How cute.  I wouldn't want to see all rock formations painted though.  I like them in their natural state.

That is indeed cute.

here is another frog for your collection - my granddaughter with the frog in front of my ex-husband's house in Germany. She is over there visiting her Opa Heller right now - frogs are popular everywhere!

Cute! Makes the rock look kind of welcoming.  What a nice touch of neighborhood whimsy and just like you, to capture it and share it with all the rest of us.

I'm a little terrified of that rock/lipstick frog. Not going to lie!
