Thank you kindly for your wonderful comments, Penny and Tina! When I was a child, visiting the "Little House" at the bottom of the garden was often an adventure ... especially at night! We had a grapevine growing over an arbour that shaded the path leading to the outhouse. Green tree frogs found this to be a marvelous place to make their homes. I wasn't as worried about the frogs leaping onto my head as I was about the slithering legless creatures that hunted the frogs! Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit... rustle, SQUARK!!! Now THAT was a sound that sent shivers down my spine!!!

I love the story behind your charming outhouse Rhonda, beautiful work and color palette Happy New Year to you and your family
I am so glad that you like this design and the story that goes with it, Paula! Thank you kindly for your lovely comment!:-)
Beautifully illustrated Rhonda, I love the story too!
Thank you for your kind and thoughtful comment, Janine! I remember well when these "little houses" were a feature of everyone's back yard.;-)
Still have one of these at the bottom of my garden! It is just a little shed now. Beautifully drawn Rhonda :-)
I am so glad you can appreciate the Aussie humour of this design, Carolyn! Thank you very much for your warm and wonderfully supportive comment!:-)
So very Australian. My grandmother actually had one of these on the farm. I used to be so scared to used it at night. A great piece of Australian history that you have recorded so beautifully.
Thank you kindly for your comment, Amy! I'm glad you appreciate my quirky design!;-)

Im still smiling with this creative and realistic story, Its a great design very rich in details and great to convert this whole frogie story into a children's book.
Aww, soo cute! I've been missing your designs Rhonda! Beautiful drawing!
Thank you very much for the positive feedback, Tara, Amy, Jana and Sheila! I'm glad that my jolly green frog tale brought some laughter your way! :-o) You should all come "Down Under" for a bit of Outback adventure!!
Awesome artwork! Thanks for the laugh today Rhonda!
Beautiful illustration Rhonda and such a fun story to accompany it!! I think a trip to Australia would be an awesome adventure. Maybe someday....
Rhonda, I love this artwork and your hilarious story behind it is priceless!!!! I love the tree frog sitting on the toilet seat......so funny!!!!!! You are so talented!
What a fun read, Rhonda! Love your illustration! It made me smile. -Tara
Thank you very much for the great comments, Victoria and Boo! I'm so glad that you can see the humour in my design! I grew up in an area where large green tree frogs were in plentiful supply. They would come out every night and hop, kerplop! kerplop!, across the roof. They would then attach themselves to the windows where they would feast upon the moths and mosquitoes that were attracted to the house lights. One particularly large one would sit like a sentry guarding the back door. My Mum tolerated him sitting there as he did dispatch many invading mozzies! ;-o)
Delightful Rhonda! Such an iconic Australian thing - the green tree frog in the loo! It happens at work regularly in the wet season ;-P Beautiful execution of a great idea. Please post a photo if you wallpaper the wall of your bathroom - such a fun idea!
Beautiful illustration AND so fun!!
Thanks for the positive feedback, Rebel! Not only do you have to beware of the frogs, you also have to watch out for the slithering reptiles that hunt the amphibians when visiting an Outback outhouse! ;-0)
Yep, we've had frogs popping up when least expected... Even in the indoor outhouse! Great idea, looks really good.
Thank you very much for your kind words and thoughtful suggestions, Motyka! I was actually thinking of having the design printed on wallpaper and using it on the inside of the bathroom door, to give the room an out-of-doors view! ;-o)
Oh what a fun design! I love your curious little froggies! What a creative space, I think this would make a very fun accent fabric in a rustic bathroom- shower curtains, hand towels, even wallpaper!
Thank you very much for the lovely comment, Penney! :-[)
what a charming design and I love the muted color scheme
Thank you, Sharon and Charlotte! I really appreciate your nice comments and positive feedback! :-)
Oh my, I love the design and the story makes it even more perfect.
Thank you very much for the lovely comment, Deborah! :-)
Rhonda, this is the sweetest design -- the colors, the delicacy, and it all leads up to a . . . frog! Well done and I love the title of this design too.
Thank you for your kind words, Alex and Jillian! :-)
Haha! The silly subject matter is so beautifully illustrated! Well done!
Oh my! This is wonderful x
Thank you very much for the lovely comments, Sylvie and Dinorah! I am so glad that my cheeky design brought back happy memories for you, Sylvie! <3
Beautiful idea and artwork, I love it! : )
Who would have thought.. oh you did..ha ha ha ha ha ha, this is really good Rhonda! Brings back memories of Africa.. thanks.. :^D ~ Sylvie
Thank you very much for the wonderful comments, Lisa, Su, Shirley, Kerryn, Angela, Tina, Amy, Vo, Ruth, Dawn and Caitie! Reading them was such a treat for me! :-)
What an amusing and original take on the theme, I'm sure all Aussies will especially appreciate it! Beautiful job with the illustration, those little frogs are so cute :) Looks great in repeat too!
Rhonda~ I love outhouses! I have sketched quite a few myself. I've also had experiences with the creatures that like to call them home! My encounters have been with mostly spiders in November during the hunting season. Great idea here ! You rock ! Dawn
This is very neat. I love it. Great.
This made me laugh until tears ran down my face!
Rhonda this is so funny and so beautifully illustrated!
This is delightfully funny and illustrated terrifically Rhonda!
LOL I had that close encounter when very young and eventually came to Canada but on a camping trip in Queensland I had further encounters which I can now fondly remember as being very funny. Thanks for bringing the memories back. You've done a great job here.
Too right Rhonda - and how charmingly illustrated and story told (I've certainly been there - nothing like a frog in the bowl to hasten your exit, at least I left the door on tho'!). This is a totally unique take and I hope it does well in the Contest!
What an amazing illustration, telling a humorous story that we can all relate to! Rhonda, your designs are certainly one of a kind!
Thank you very much for the positive feedback on this design, Isabella and Karen! I am so glad that you enjoyed my Aussie Outback humour, Isabella! ;-0)
This is wonderful!
Rhonda, you are so talented and entertaining. Your artwork is fantastic and your description had me nearly falling off my chair in laughter!
