Grey/Gray and a Little Visitor

And my attempt at the French Grey. I thought I'd start out small. I had these candle holders They were black. So after I found some grey spray paint, I decided to use these as the guinea pigs. I think I like things grey/gray.  I have one more candle holder to spray to add to these, that I'll put on my coffee table.

While attending to my backyard yesterday, I was looking at how well my roses where doing and I found that it had a visitor. I almost did not see it. I don't have any idea what you call it.... but there it was. And of course I had to take a picture. It has yellow eyes.....

The gray looks good. I like that look with white wash over it too.

I have no idea what that bug is!
