Can anyone please identify what this is and what creature leaves it? It is all over my sister-in-laws back yard, her decorative items, widow's tongue, on the side of her car, her pool furniture... very strange.

I'm glad you asked! I've seen them too, and have no clue.

I'm pretty sure it is the eggs of Lacewings. Green Lacewing, a beneficial insect. I found the eggs on my car door a few years ago.

The thread "Green Lacewing - Beneficial Insects" in Brugmansias forum

The thread "(Chrysopinae); Green Lacewing eggs on Milkweed" in Plant ID forum
The thread "A row of little hairs with green bulbs on the end stuck to the inside of my door" in Plant ID forum

Edited to add links.

They are very beneficial but I've been bitten by the larva and the bite was worse than a mosquito. They were in my olive trees, and fell on me when I was sitting under them. They don't fly at that stage, so I just stay away from under trees they like. I just did a quick search, and here is some info.
