Beautiful Weathervanes as Functional Garden Statuary

Strutting Rooster Full SizeAt Design Toscano, we carry far more than unique Bigfoot Statues, dozens of high quality stone garden angels, and beautiful furniture. Our collection also includes such functional decor as fountains, drain spouts, and weathervanes. Weathervanes in particular are wonderful decor for any home. These fun items hearken back to old fashioned times before any weather forecasters or electronic gadgets could tell us if a storm was headed our way. Instead, we had to rely on almanacs, educated guesses of community elders, and a good, strong weathervane.

The weathervane had to be strong enough to stand up to the biggest gusts of wind, hail, and winter snowstorms, and this is why they were crafted from metal. Our weathervanes follow that classic tradition, are fully functional, and will last for decades (if not centuries). Not to mention, they also look fantastic! Our Windblown Wicked Witch Metal Weathervane is beautifully detailed and is available as a garden stake or as a weathervane for the roof. For even spookier decor, get the Crescent Moon Vampire Bats Metal Weathervane!

We also have several beautiful copper weathervanes in our collection. The Strutting Rooster Full-Size Copper Weathervane shows the same classic rooster form found on old farmhouses in rural New England. If the house or garden would look better with a weathervane that has a more modern look, you might like the Celebration Wine Bottle Copper Weathervane.

Greek Garden Statues or an Animal Yard Statue?

Hebe, the Goddess of YouthMid summer is here and it could be time to change some of the garden statuary. Those garden fairies that were a perfect addition to a backyard during the spring just don't seem to fit in with the other summer decor. Or, it could be that you just didn't get a chance to buy any new decor before summer kicked into gear. Whatever the reason, when it's time to go shopping for new statues for the garden, even if you already know where to buy high quality decor for the best prices, you also have to figure out what to buy.

For example, do you go with a new stone garden angel or other form of classic statuary, or a realistic animal garden sculpture? It would be nice to buy all of the above and more but since most of us are on at least some sort of budget, we have to settle for one or two of our favorite choices. If you are looking to add a touch of class to the garden, you might want to go with something like Hebe the Goddess of Youth or Thalia, Muse of the Garden. If the backyard could stand for a more natural look, we have a large selection of animal garden statues, including such wild animals as the Lioness of Namibia.

Garden Cherub Statues for an Adorable Yard

Versailles Cherub Urn and PlinthAngels are representations of heavenly, perfect beings that can do no wrong. This is why sculptures of angels tend to be majestic, are bereft of flaws, are serene, and are neither male nor female but a beautiful, other worldly creature that resides in the heavenly realms. However, not all angels are mature and adult in appearance. Some angels look like chubby, innocent, winged babies. These are the cherubs and sculptures of these miniature angels are the perfect means of adding an adorable touch to any garden.

Whether by merit of their small dimensions or innocent appearance, cherubs tend to be more versatile than larger, winged angels. As is shown by the Versailles Cherub Urn and Plinth, they can be used to decorate urns and other classic garden decor, including outdoor garden water fountains. The Cherubs at Play Sculptural Fountain is adorned with several playful cherubs that give this classic functional decor a lively appearance.

Most cherubs, though, just look adorable. The Balancing a Dream Sculpture is a cute, sleeping baby angel that lends a peaceful, lazy look to the backyard. Complement this cute decor with other adorable cherub sculptures like the "Cherubs d'Amour Statue"  and the Topsy and Turvy Cherub Twin Statues

Remember Loved Ones with a Garden Angel Statue and Garden Marker

Always in our ThoughtsWe remember loved ones in a number of ways but one of the most intimate is with garden decor. Although you could put beautiful garden statuary on display that reminds you that special person, there is also garden decor designed to pay tribute to loved ones. Such remembrance decor can take the shape and form of angels, benches, and other statues. Garden markers in particular are a suitable, easy type of remembrance decor to put on display because they are just the right size and demeanor. They are also inscribed with endearing messages that remind us of how loved ones have touched and affected our lives.

The Mother's Garden Memorial Garden Marker is shaped like a heart, etched with a detailed flower, and inscribed with words that connect the loving bond shared between mother and child. Like other memorial garden markers, this cast stone item will last for decades if not centuries. Our garden markers also range from the simple yet sweet Always in our Thoughts Angel Wing Marker to the larger and more elaborate I Thought of You with Love Angel Cast Stone Memorial.

Of course, you could also go with any number of angel statues including memorial angels like the beautiful Angel of Grief Monument Statue, and the Divine Memories Angel Sculptural Monument.

Fantastic Flying Resin Garden Statues

Wingspan Seagull StatueGarden statuary has become much more than classic sculptures, angel statues, and gargoyle figurines. Thanks to advances in resin technologies, we can also decorate the yard with beautiful, realistic animal garden sculptures, exquisite garden fountains, and a host of unique statuary for a fraction of the cost associated with marble and other sculpting mediums. Statuary can also be engineered to hang from trees and even look as if it's flying through the backyard. 

What? Flying garden statues? Yes, decor like the incredible Prehistoric Pteranodon Dinosaur Statue can be hung from trees or rafters to help it "fly" through the yard or place of business on wings that span ten feet. Put this incredible garden sculpture on display in one corner of the yard and the equally life-like Pteranodon Scaled Dinosaur Statue in another part of the backyard for full flying effect.

If the garden or home would look better with a flying sculpture of a modern-day animal, you might like our Wingspan Seagull Statue. This realistic statue of a gull has a big, six foot wingspan, and can be hung from a tree in the backyard or inside the home. It also looks great when displayed near a pool.

Religious Outdoor Statues for a Christian Home

When adding decor to the backyard, we tend to use garden statuary that is a reflection of the things we enjoy, our attitudes, and our beliefs. For a Christian home, this decor can take the form of works that features phrases from the Bible, a white dove carrying an olive branch, sculptures for outside that feature a number of Christian symbols, and other types of decorations.

Jesus Loves the Little ChildrenOur Jesus Loves the Little Children Garden Sculpture is a wonderful, high quality, Smiling Christ statue that adds a cheerful touch to any garden. Put this happy, endearing sculpture in a prominent place as a reminder of your Christian faith. Complement this fine statue with a classic Holy Family Sculpture. This beautiful garden decor is closely modeled after similar Holy Family statues that have graced the peaceful gardens of Italian churches and estates for hundreds of years.

Many Italian gardens also display Christian-themed sculptures in miniature grottos and other quiet corners of the backyard. Our Meditation Grotto of Sorrento evokes the same sense of wonder with fine, hand-painted details.

No Christian-themed garden is complete without a stone garden angel. The Angel of Ravenna is one of many fantastic garden angels in our collection. Like the beautiful Intercession Angel: Praying Hands Religious Statue, it was directly cast from antique statues found in an Italian cathedral.

Three Reasons for Using Garden Décor with a European Flair

European gardens are well known for hosting beautiful garden statuary, sculpted hedges and topiary, and stunning fountains. Large, extensive gardens in major cities also display a variety of antique sculptures, some of them from the Victorian era, others from older times. There are several reasons for using similar decor in your own garden, including the following three reasons:

Ascending Angel SculptureA classic, classy appearance: Few garden statues are as distinguished as a classic stone garden angel or other sculptures that would look right at home in the garden of an old European estate. The fantastic Ascending Angel Sculpture is just one of several classic angels in our collection.

 

  • They add character to any backyard: Even one European-style garden sculpture will transform the character of your backyard. Put statues like Hebe, the Goddess of Youth, or a fine replica of the famous Venus de Milo sculpture in the yard and your place takes on an entirely different, more distinguished appearance.

 

  • Wonderful resin statues for a great price: Although the statues in our collection are fit to be put on display in large estate gardens throughout Europe, they are far more affordable than any antique sculpture. Our Marcellus Sculpture, a high quality replica of a Roman era work of art, is one such statue.

Thai Teppanom Beautiful Being Garden statuary can take many forms. We have said that before but it's always worth reiterating to help people avoid the mistake of buying the same old, poor quality garden statues.

Unique Statues for Garden and Gothic Décor for the Home

Zen, Garden GnomeIt's easy to find decor for the home and garden but it's not so easy to find unique, high quality items for low prices. Well, not so easy unless you already know where to shop for them. You won't find detailed, beautiful animal garden statues, the best selection of stone garden angels, nor unique objets d'art for the home at the nearest big box store. You might find a few nice items after scouring stores for hours but even then, they are going to cost more than you probably want to pay. The easiest place to shop for high quality decor is at Design Toscano simply because we have a huge selection of unique, high quality items for great prices.

For example, if you feel like buying a new garden gnome but would much rather have a gnome that stands out from the crowd, you just might like the cute "Zen Garden Gnome" Statue. Although this gnome would rather meditate than work in the garden, he hasn't relinquished his white beard, pointed red hat, and other typical gnome attire. Complement his search for higher consciousness with the "Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog" Statue.

As for interior decor, you will find hundreds of exquisite and stunning items in our Basil Street Gallery as well as such high quality Gothic-themed decor as the Warwickshire Dragon Glass-Topped Coffee Table and the Chateau St. Roche Sculptural Wall Mirror.

Saturday is a Perfect Day to Decorate the Garden with Sculptures for Outside

Zairen, the ZebraToday is Saturday and many of us dedicate much of this day to the garden. After a long week of work, the garden is a welcome, relaxing place for rejuvenation, especially now that the warm weather has come back to town. How nice to sit out back on a favorite bench to read a good book, sip on a cold drink, or just watch the birds come to the feeder. However, most of us also have to spend some of that time trimming plants, taking care of vegetables, and just decorating the garden. That can be hard work at times but it always pays off and is usually much more relaxing than working at the office.

You will know when the backyard needs a new statue if one or more of the other statues start to look "old" or if the garden looks sort of empty. When that happens, the garden will probably look much better with a new statue or two. The best statue for the garden depends on your likes and how you feel like decorating it. That new sculpture might end up being something along the lines of a functional religious statue like the Nature's Nurturer: St. Francis Sculpture, or perhaps a beautiful animal yard statue like Zairen, the Zebra.

A quality stone garden angel can add a dramatic, classic look and we also have striking collection of greenmen sculptures to put a face on your favorite Maple, Oak, or Basswood.

Wall Decor in the Form of a Garden Angel Statue

Brixton Abbey AngelWhen we think of angel sculptures, most of us have classic angel statues in mind. These are the majestic angels that we see in churches, in Italian courtyards, and in many a garden statuary collection. There are many fine angel statues like this but there are also angel sculptures that look like children, that can be used to remember loved ones, and that can be used as wall decor.

The Santa Croce Angel Wall Frieze is one of the more magnificent wall decor angels in our collection. Available in small and large sizes, this replica of an 18th century Italian work of art is a stunning display of angelic beauty. Although some angels stretch their wings, this angel nearly envelopes herself in a pair of highly detailed, huge, feathered appendages. This stand out decor can be hung on the inside of a large garden wall or used to add unique charm to the interior of home and business.

If the garden walls work better with a smaller garden angel, the Brixton Abbey Angel Wall Sculpture is a wonderful, functional piece that is modeled after an antique, Victorian angel statue. The beautiful little angel featured in this sculpture holds a large seashell that can be used as a bird bath, to showcase flower cuttings, or hold potpourri.

Statues for Garden Can Be Anything from Fountains and Angels, to Animals and Urns

Iggy the IguanaThis is garden decorating season and while some of us are veterans at finding the best animal yard statue for our backyards, other people are just getting started with a new garden. They may have just moved into a house with green space, or recently decided to decorate the backyard. Either way, getting started with garden decor can be as frustrating as it is rewarding. Much of that frustration comes from looking for garden decor in places that have very limited collections of low quality items. However, shop for garden decor at Design Toscano and those frustrations will be eliminated because we only deal in beautiful, unique, and high quality items.

We also have a huge variety of decorations for the garden that go far beyond a few angel and gnome statues. For example, if the backyard could use a fountain, we have a big selection of beautiful outdoor garden water fountains. The L'Acqua di Vita Sculptural Fountain is one of several stunning fountains in our collection and looks even better when complemented with a classic urn or two.

Folks new to garden decorating might also be surprised by the number and quality of our animal garden statues. Our collection includes everything from highly realistic items like Iggy the Iguana Statue to such dynamic, fun decor as the Snapping Swamp Gator Statue.

Give the Backyard a Unique Down Under Look with Australian Animal Garden Statues

Kouta, The Climbing Koala SculptureThe garden decorating season is here and most of us mark this time of the year by planting vegetables and flowers in the backyard and shopping for new resin garden statues. We all want to find the best deals on garden statuary and make use of decor that lends a unique look to the backyard but this can be a challenge when you already have a good selection of statues to choose from. This year, instead of buying a new stone garden angel, you may want to consider statues of Australian animals. There are few places on the planet that have as many unique and signature animals as Down Under and any of those creatures will give your garden a unique, exotic look.

Instead of putting a statue of a mischievous squirrel in your favorite backyard tree, decorate it with Kouta, the Climbing Koala. This realistic animal garden statue is nearly as adorable as the actual Eucalyptus munching animals that add charm to Australian woodlands. It can also be displayed on a garden wall.

Complement Kouta the Koala with another wild, signature animal of the Australian outback, the kangaroo. The Kangaroo and Joey Australian Outback Statue is as large as the actual hoppers that spring across the Australian landscape. Put this life-like beauty in the garden and neighbors will wonder where you managed to find such an amazing pet.

The Daydream Fairy SculptureTime is running out to find that perfect Mother's Day gift! Sure, you could always put it off and do some last minute shopping but is it worth the risk of settling on some average gift or cheap, everyday decor?

However, since we have such a huge collection of high quality sculptures, we know that it can be a challenge to pick out the ideal gift for such an important person. Here are a couple of tips on picking out the best garden statue gifts for Mom:

  • Think of her interests: Think about the books she likes to read and the movies she likes to watch. If she enjoys fantasy novels, you might want to give her the Daydream Fairy Sculpture or another of our beautiful garden fairies.
  • Buy a statue that can be used in the garden and inside the home: She will like the statue even more if it works inside the home just as well as it does in the garden. The Thoughts of an Angel Sculptural Wall Roundel is one of several such items in our collection.
