James Bond, beer, and tree frogs.

Frogoholic - raw bronze (no patina yet)

Frogoholic - raw bronze (no patina yet)

It's fun combining things I like, so I'm combining
• my bronze wall hanging tree frog,
• secret James Bond-like gadgetry, and
• beer...
to make Frogoholic!

It's the wall mounted tree frog that's now also a stealth bottle opener.

What could be more fun than that?!

Unassuming wall mounted tree frog, soon to become weaponized to 'Frogoholic'...

Frogoholic has yet to receive its patina, and is currently still in the testing phase, since I want to make sure the bronze doesn't get all chewed up after opening bunches of bottles.

I call it research and development.
Then, a bit later, I call it searurch and dvelelopment...

Then, assuming the metal holds up nicely, I'll get some made, probably with a yellowish green patina and send them off to M-I-5...

'Right, now do pay attention double-O seven...'
'Excellent, just the thing for unwinding after a rough day at the office.'

Frogoholic patina options- I think I like second down on the right best...or possibly top left...what do you think?

I think they are amazing and now I want one:) I like the color in the first photo with the natural background. He has a touch of blue mixed with the green and he looks real. What a wonderful idea!! Beautiful!
