Blanche du Bwahahahahahaha

Meet my latest spider creation, Blanche du Bwahahahahahaha. I made a beaded web strand for Blanche so that she can hang alluringly on the wall, be taken for a walk, be worn as an ornament, or be safely tethered to one spot.

Blanche has had a rough life. She lost her mate a few months back. No... she didn't bite his head off. She's not that kind of spider. He lost his life in a tragic accident. Rolled-up L.A. Times. (It could have been worse. It could have been the rolled-up L.A. Times before they downsized it.) She found herself with 543 beady babies to raise all on her own.

Then she lost her web. Yep. Foreclosure. Sign of the times. She got into one of those Re-Fi now loans. There's no way she could make the payments, especially with her husband gone. And she's not as young as she used to be. It's not like she can pull all that spider silk out of her... well, maybe she can. But not as quickly as before.

Fortunately the kids are grown now, weaving webs of their own. Blanche can finally relax a little. Take it easy.

Her requirements are few: a couple of beaded flies, a web to call home, maybe a pig to watch over. Can you help. Adoption is available right here.
