If I remember correctly, someone posted about wanting some larger gargoyles. I just found these at Factory Card Outlet for twenty bucks a piece. They're about a foot tall. I think they're worth the twenty bucks because they're foam covered with latex, but their wings are wired for posing...I'm going to replace the latex red eyes with red marbles...And I'm tempted to leave them up all year!

Yeah, good point! I'll have to keep an eye on them. Good thing they're on the north side of the house...probably won't matter. I'd hate to go out and see them melted all over the roof! I think its latex, but I'm not sure because I've never used the stuff. Just has that feel to me...

My cement gargoyle stands tall all year long, i guess he protects my house
It's cool to hear someone else keeps a gargoyle out all year long! I have two rather large cement gargoyles sitting on the edge of the walkway to my front steps. I've opened up the vineyard to U-pick business this month and people usually come to the house if I'm not in the vineyard and ring the doorbell to make arrangements to pick grapes. I've had two different sets of people this week ask me if my gargoyles were "good" or "protective". I tell everyone that gargoyles are guardians and mine are nice unless you aren't! :D There seems to be a somewhat common misconception around here that gargoyles are "evil" :rolleyes: , so I try to be a good PR person for them whenever I get the chance.

That's too bad people think they're bad...gargoyles are supposed to scare away evil spirits (probably doesn't work on Halloween though!). Churches were the first to use them, weren't they?

Can you guys post pics? I'd LOVE to see some cement ones...

I'm sure you will like the gargoyle, turtle. Their stuff is usually very nice. I've ordered some dragons from them and been very happy...
