Garden Decor


Seems like just a couple of weeks ago we were writing about the dog days of summer. Time goes by so fast, tomorrow marks the first day of Autumn. Of course with Fall comes Halloween. In our book, it is never too early to start thinking about Halloween decorations. With Autumn knocking on our door, that means October is coming upon us quickly. What better way to celebrate the changing of seasons than to share with you our favorite Halloween inspired, spooky pieces.

Dragon Skull Large Statue

Okay, honestly this sculpture is not limited to just Halloween. In fact it would look pretty cool on a bookshelf. However, we love the idea of spreading some fake cobwebs over the top and surrounding the sculpture with candles to set the Halloween mood.

A Gothic Sentinel Gargoyle Garden Sculpture

Gargoyles were said to ward of evil spirits and were commonly found outside of Gothic churches. When the haunts are out, rest assured this guy will do more than ward off evil spirits. Yet another sculpture that would look great in a garden or home year around.

Cat With Mask Halloween Sculpture

This cat sculpture is on the more cute side than spooky. However, it is a Halloween stable and a favorite year, after year. If you love this guy, we have a cat sculpture for almost any occasion.

Not only are we in the dog days of summer but it is also National Dog day! What better way to beat the heat and celebrate out canine friends than to share some of our most adorable dog statues.

Piper Scottish Terrier Dog Statue

Piper Scottish Terrier Dog Statue

The Scottish Terrier is one of America’s most beloved dogs! It’s one of the only breed of dogs to reside in the white house more than three times. They are nicknamed ‘Diehard’ because of their feisty determination. Much like our Piper Scottish Terrier statue, it will adorn your garden or interior decor year after year with feisty tenacity.

Bull Dog Mascot - Spike Canine Bulldog

Bull Dog Mascot – Spike Canine Bulldog

Another Statue.com favorite but a little more ferocious… cute… but ferocious is our Bull Dog Mascot Statue. Bull Dogs were once bred to be fierce protectors but now they are a docile family dog. This statue embraces their heritage and would make an awesome addition to any school or business too!

Dogs In A Car, On A Road trip Wall Plaque Sculpture

Dogs In A Car, On A Road trip Wall Plaque Sculpture

Last of our favorites but certainly not least, is Statue.com’s Dog in a Car, on a Road Trip wall plaque sculpture. On a hot summer day what is more enjoyable for a dog than to stick their nose out the window. This timeless plaque will bring back memories of hot summer days with man’s best friend!

Some of my favorite Statue.com pieces do not fall into our traditional category of sculptures and fountains. In fact, I love our Henri cast stone pieces. They have the look and feel of wood but are made of durable cast stone. Which translates to less maintenance and better longevity of the piece.

In addition to longevity and less maintenance, cast stone pieces are very heavy. The process of making cast stone involves a special blend of portland cement and light weight aggregates.  This makes them perfect for outdoor use.

Each of our Cast Stone pieces is hand worked after casting to create a unique and beautiful finish. This hand work gives these pieces the look and feel of wood. A very visually interesting touch!  Furthermore, the finish of most Henri pieces can be customized to suit your decor. Whether it’s dark or light the finish will be just right.

Garden Patron Saints

Spring has sprung… I am trying very hard to ignore the fact that it is still so cold outside. But alas we have crossed the threshold of the Spring equinox. I don’t know about you, but I am itching to get into my garden. We purchased a new home late last summer. This will be my first gardening season in this house.

Following our theme of a blog post about a Saint each week of March, I thought I would share some Patron Saints that might just bring good blessings to your garden… whether it be veggie or flower.

Saint Francis

Nature's Sanctuary Saint Francis Garden Statue

Nature’s Sanctuary Saint Francis Garden Statue

Patron Saint of the garden’s birds and animals and of ecology. Founder of the Franciscans, he is often shown preaching to the birds.In Nature’s Sanctuary Saint Francis Garden Sculpture will be a religious and nature focal point will leave your guests in awe! Saint Francis rises over three feet high on his generous, four-foot-long log perch. This Italian patron saint of nature reaches toward the gentle lamb at his feet, showcasing amazing detail from the folds of his garment to his benevolent expression. The artist captures intricacies sometimes lost in sculpts this grand in scale, casting our exclusive in quality designer resin as an heirloom for decades to come.

Saint Therese 

Saint Therese - Theresa Statue 25

Saint Therese – Theresa Statue 25″ High

Our Saint Therese of Lisieux Therese Martin statue is a sculpted likeness of this beloved woman. She was cured from an illness at age 8 when a statue of the Blessed Virgin smiled at her. Many lives have been touched by her intercession. Prior to her death, she vowed, to “Spend my heaven doing good on earth. I will let fall a shower of roses .” For this she is the Patron Saint of Florists.  Her roses continue to fall everywhere in the world to those who pray for her intercession. Saint Therese Statue would make a beautiful addition to any rose garden.

Saint Fiacre 

Saint Fiacre Sculpture 30

Saint Fiacre Sculpture 30″ High

Saint Fiacre Garden Sculpture is made of cast stone and is wonderful for the home or garden. Saint Fiacre was born in Ireland and raised in a monastery. Much of mankind learning and knowledge was brought to the monasteries and left in the care and protection of the monks. Travelers brought seeds and plant material, as well as cultural enlightenment from as far away as Rome and the Holy Land. Saint. Fiacres days at the monastery taught him a deep love of silence, the joys of planting and harvesting crops and an appreciation of nature. Drawn to the religious life and the desire to serve God in solitude, Fiacre decided to establish a hermitage for worship. Monks in those days were regarded as physicians of the body as well as the soul. Soon people were flocking to Fiacre for prayers, food and healing. He fed the hungry and healed the sick with herbs from his garden and prayed for all who came there. From his work be became Patron Saint of vegetable Garden and men who like to garden.  Our spiritual garden figurine of Saint Fiacre is cast in cast stone to add a meditative and miraculous presence to your own Eden. Another quality Statue.com religious garden statue!

January Dream

“Anyone who thinks gardening begins in the spring and ends in the fall is missing the best part of the whole year; for gardening begins in January with a dream.” ~ Josephine Nuese

We shared this quote a while back on our Pinterest and Facebook but some how it escaped the blog. While January is behind us (thank goodness) we still have a ways to go in the Midwest before we see thawing and blooming. That doesn’t mean a girl can’t dream, right? What garden style do you dream of?

Cento Urn On 6' Pool Fountain

Cento Urn On 6′ Pool Fountain

My dream style is one that mixes the deep South (think Charleston and Savannah) with the formality of English gardens. I love the idea of mixing the Massarelli’s  Carnelian Mountain finish Cento Urn with the pop of bright colors from azaleas and roses. I can almost hear the fountain flowing now.

Unfortunately, Spanish moss does not fair well with our deep freezes but I do love the evergreen look of Spanish Moss providing a romantic backdrop.

Dancing Girl of the Wind Bronze Garden Statue

Dancing Girl of the Wind Bronze Garden Statue

Of course my dream garden would not be complete without statuary. The Dancing Girl statue gives my dream garden the formality of the English Garden… despite her free spirit.

My grandmother use to line walkways of her garden with mint, rosemary, lavender and various other herbs. Her beautiful logic was that when one passed through it would create a fragrant journey.  I hope to do the same this year when the frost subsides.

I am also looking forward to the chirping of our winged friends. No perfect garden is complete without a birdbath and birdhouse.

What does your dream garden include? What are you dreaming about the most in your garden? We would love to help you make your dream garden a reality!
