Looking for Gargoyles (in all the wrong places?)

Ever since I read Rue's post about gargoyles on her Rue and Hyssop blog here I have become somewhat obsessed in wanting to find my own Protector. I think a witch needs a gargoyle just as much as a broom or a cauldron. Though our property is protected by witchcraft already, what's the harm of adding a bit more. Browsing the web you must know there are at least 2 gazillions sites. The one I'll show you today has a wide variety (to see the website click on this: gargoyles for sale)

Some of these are quite dangerous-looking, others are whimsical, funny, ugly, tacky and downright gross. Peruse these examples and see which one(s) you would like hunched on your doorstep.
Frog-goyle?




Bad mood or leg cramps?


Good grief, this guy is much too lazy to be of any use

This face reminds me of someone, maybe a British rock singer?

Would you pick this one?

This satyr type is not too bad, except he looks like he is answering nature's call

Grin or grimace?
Gargoyle humor

Oh, that last one, definitely! Too funny! (And your descriptions of the other ones are hilarious!)

Actually, I love the lazy one! Kind of fits my mood, right now. So busy on a project, I barely have time to scratch my nose...

I have a friend that makes gargoyles :-) I´ve ordered an angry dragon from her but she has troubles making her dragon look angry :-) :-) So I´m thinking of getting a gargoyle from her instead :-)

Have a great day!
Christer.

I would take the ones stealing the gnome, lol. I like a little mischief around the house as my boys can tell you.

LOL ; Robin, I am laughing my head off! Great post my friend! I love everything you said with each gargoyle o) Thanks for making my day!
I love the one you said, he looks like he is answering nature's call! I have two more gargoyles in the room where I paint and work on my computer. I can't wait to show them. I think you will really love them!

"Bad mood or leg cramps?" lol

The first protector of my house was (and still is) a gargoyle. His name is Wicked Grins. You can see him in this post (http://pagan-culture.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2011-05-20T00%3A13%3A00-04%3A00&max-results=5). I have one in my kitchen too, and there is a smaller one who guards my Spring Maiden. I love my GGs.

The gargoyles are so cute! I really love the "lazy one," I am drawn to the gargoyle cats myself (big surprise).

I have also been into Dragon's lately as well (in Chinese astrology I am the Dragon - LOL)

Blessings always,

Kim

What a fun filled site with so many glorious gargoyles to drool over!!! I'm already missing my gaggle of gargoyles who are currently hibernating in a moving box.
Thanx for sharing the site! :0)

Robin, I chuckled all through these images with your comments. If I had to choose on of these, it would certainly be the last one. Hilarious!!! Blessed week to you, my friend.
