Last Day to Save Big on Shipping Costs

Giant Buddha Monument-Sized Garden SculptureShipping costs are an annoyance but quickly grow into a burden when buying several items or large objets d'art. While the extra dollars for shipping might not be too much with small items, hefty fees get added onto the costs of larger, heavier purchases. Sometimes, they are so much that you seriously begin to consider driving to the store and using your own car to carry that beautiful, antique replica chair back home. That may cut costs but for most people, it's not really an option because the store is too far away or the purchase just too big for your vehicle. When buying online, people don't usually complain too much about the shipping costs because they view them as necessary sacrifices to make in light of the low, online prices and ease in purchasing unique items.

Nevertheless, it's always better to pay less and this weekend you can do just that when making purchases of $75 or more from Design Toscano. It's the perfect time to buy big, heavy items like a large Buddha statue or Gothic tables so take advantage of this last day of free shipping from Design Toscano on $75 or more purchases and place a large order today!

The Perfect Garden Statue for Feeding Birds

Nature's Nurturer: St. Francis SculptureGardens frequently act as a temporary escape from more stressful aspects of life. Whether going there to read a tantalizing book, doing yoga, or landscaping, it can help you refresh, recuperate, and get ready to head back to your day job. For this reason, every backyard needs the right type of garden statuary to heighten the peaceful atmosphere. Buddha outdoor statues and a pagoda are perfect compliments for Asian-themed gardens and garden fairies make for an excellent addition to every backyard. If you also like to feed the birds, you can't go wrong with a statue of Saint Francis that can also act as a bird feeder.

Saint Francis of Assisi was known for his deep appreciation and love of the natural world. Hailing from an affluent Tuscan family, he cast off all of his worldly goods to get closer to God and nature. Tales tell of Saint Francis taming a savage wolf and feeding the birds from his hands. It only makes sense then to include a bird feeder with this detailed Saint Francis statue. Fill the statue's basket with bird seed and watch as sparrows, jays, and other avian backyard visitors come to your garden.

Buy the Saint Francis statue or order more than $75 worth of objets d'art from Design Toscano and get them delivered to your home for free from February 16th to February 18th!

Every Garden Needs Greenmen

Your backyard can look fantastic with the right types of garden statuary and sculptures. A The Spirit of Nottingham Woods: Greenman Tree Sculpturepagoda statue always looks nice in an Asian-themed garden as do Buddha outdoor statues.   However, no matter what your garden decorating theme is, it's always going to look better with a "greenman" or two. This doesn't refer to gnome statues or little men from Mars. Although that would provide an interesting touch to any backyard, the sculptures that work with any garden are depictions of faces that appear to come right out of the tree they are placed on.

Most show old, ancient faces nestled within gnarled branches and craggy tree trunks. They bring tree spirits and dryads to mind and indeed this is what they essentially depict. Whereas  statues of garden fairies still manage to stand out in the greenery, greenmen sculptures blend right in with the trees. Hang up one of these mystical sculptures on a shady tree trunk and it will look as if the tree has a face staring out at you and your guests. These sculptures aren't limited to trees either. Many also look striking when placed on a wall, especially when it's a garden wall covered in creeping ivy.

Get 20% off these fantastic garden sculptures and other decor until February 14th!

Asian Garden Statues and Decor Fit for an Emperor

Emperor Xuanzong's Fat Horse Asian StatueThe emperors of ancient China and Japan filled their homes with amazing works of art. During the Ming and Qing dynasties, beautifully lacquered furniture decorated the hallways of the Imperial palace in Beijing. Vases, paintings, and Buddha outdoor statues were scattered throughout the massive residences of Chinese and Japanese rulers. While much of the art during ancient Asia was limited to a small number of rulers and the very rich, most modern day people can fill their homes with similar looking pieces and thus live like the emperors of old.

Show the Emperor Xuansong's Fat Horse statue in your home and you will be displaying a replica of one of the most highly esteemed works of art from ancient China. Place "your horse" where it can be seen by all and tell guests that the original statue was made for an important Chinese emperor.

In ancient China, there were no telephones, computers, or intercom systems. Other means of communications had to be employed to let people know when the emperor was going to speak or when it was time for dinner. The easiest way of getting other people's attention was with a large, bronze gong. Although you don't have to use it to announce meals or speeches just as the emperors did, you can own very similar decor in the form of  the Sheng Kwong gong.

Asian decor fit for an emperor, Japanese garden statues, and all Asian garden sculptures are 20% off until Sunday, February 5th!
