Fountains are an essential piece for any garden. You can have the most realistic of animal yard statues and breathtaking statues in your garden but the backyard won't be complete without the soothing sound of flowing water associated with a true work of art. These functional sculptures have been used for ages in most parts of the world. In many parts of southern Europe, communal fountains in plazas still provide flowing water for residents just as they have been doing for centuries. If you don't have a fountain in the garden of your home or business, today is the perfect day to start a fountain tradition of your own.
Today, May 22nd, marks the second and final day for the Design Toscano 2 day fountain sale. Whether buying beautiful bronze garden sculptures that also act as fountains or going for sculptural fountains that incorporate cherubs and animals, you get 20% off the regular price when buying them today! Don't wait until tomorrow to order the Saint Remy Lion Corner Fountain or the L'Acqua di Vita Sculptural Fountain unless you want to pay full price for these and other beautiful fountains.

Today, April 5th is one day closer to warmer weather. In the northeast, Spring Peepers and Red-winged Blackbirds are calling from thawed marshes.

March is finally here and although winter still holds much of the country fast in its icy grip, its hold is going to weaken in a matter of weeks or even days. As Spring approaches, it's time to start thinking about the flowers you would like to plant. Not only do you have to decide upon which flowers you would like to have growing in the garden, you also need to pick where they will grow. Some species are best off planted separate from other flowers (roses come to mind), while other species are more suited for flower beds.
There are also flowers that look great when they grow out of and hang from a planter. Although flower pots can be used in this regard, there are much more elegant means of providing a place for flower species that hang into the air. For example, you could hardly add more elegance to potted flowers than having them grow out of the Le Printemps and Le Etoile Wall Sculpture. These sculptures for outside have a serene, classic appearance that will make your backyard look like it belongs in the Victorian era. These two pieces of garden statuary are also perfect for decorating both sides of a corner and compliment garden cherub statues.
Get 20% off this and all sale items from March 6th until March 9th!

The best decorating blends various types of decor that compliment each other to bring a room to life. When you employ framed wall art, a piece of hand-crafted furniture or two, and sculptures, the end results can easily elicit "wows" from every guest. The same goes for the backyard. Place a few animal garden statues in strategic spots and a stone garden angel near the back door and your backyard will take on new personality.
Plants also play a crucial role in backyard decor. Whether growing in pots, planted in rows, or growing naturally, flowering bushes and trees provide that living greenery that every backyard needs. There's no reason why plants shouldn't also be used inside the home. They cheer up a room, freshen the air with extra oxygen, and add life to any room. However, you can't just leave potted plants on the floor. Some look great when hung from a hook in the ceiling but pedestals are the best way to display your favorite indoor plants. They will look particularly regal when placed on the winged lion pedestal.
Use plenty of plants in the backyard to compliment garden cherub statues but don't forget to place one or two on a pedestal inside your home. Buy these and other decor from Design Toscano on February 29th and get 25% off the regular price!

If you have a gardener on your list of gift giving this year, now is the best time to help them prepare for the upcoming gardening season. Many gardeners start planning their garden themes months ahead of time, sometimes as soon as the first frost occurs in colder climates. While many others may give practical garden gifts, you may want to stand out from the crowd and consider a gift for your favorite gardener that is as unique as a garden fairy statue. Garden fairies make ethereal statements that will certainly delight during the holiday season.
A garden fairy statue
such as a simple summertime fairy on a swing will make the gardener on your list feel like the gardening season is just around the corner, rather than months away. When the weather outside is frightful, breath a breath of fresh summer air into your gift that will delight any gardener.
Garden cherub statues serve the same purpose, but can also add a touch of religious sentiment to a holiday gift. A holiday gift that comes in the form of cherubs at play

Design Toscano has religious outdoor statues for all faiths, but probably our largest and most popular collection is Christian statues. Our artists recreate scenes from the life of Jesus with superb detail and great reverence like the Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane Statue
. Artist Carlo Bronti has created the full emotional impact of Jesus praying about the difficult task that is in front of him during that first Holy Week. This will become a treasured item in your family.
Some of the most spiritually fulfilling and yet totally adorable pieces are our garden cherub statues. The cherubs are caught napping, playing in fountains and very often praying. One lovely piece is the Sun’s Rays Sundial Cherub Garden Statue
. This cute young cherub is 2 ft. tall and is prancing in the garden. He wants to know the time so he lifts his sundial to the sun and the heavens. He is a Design Toscano exclusive.
Definitely it is time to look at all of our outdoor statues, such as a stone garden angel, because many of them are on sale. We also some lovely wall sculptures depicting angels that are museum quality works of art. One such item is the Angels of St. Petersburg Cathedral Wall Sculpture
which is two feet wide and over a foot tall. This is a graceful and spiritual replica of the carving on the cathedral in Russia with the cross in the center and well detailed angels looking toward it on a sculpted piece in an egg shape.

Design Toscano is well known for its many varied sculptures for outside from Greek gods to charming dragons. Of course we continue this tradition with our Halloween themed outdoor sculptures of which the Crescent Moon Vampire Bats Metal Weathervane: Garden Stake
is a fine example. Bats, bats and more bats are surrounding the crescent moon on this weathervane which can be set as a weathervane or as a garden stake. It is made of aluminum for its rust free nature, but finished in a dark and stormy black.
This is not the time of year to be thinking of our adorable garden cherub statues (although they are lovely). Now you need to delve into our somewhat darker winged sculptures like the Kiss of Death Winged Skeleton Statue
. The story depicted here, inspired by a 1930’s statue from Barcelona, is a lovely maiden kneeling down, but alas her suitor is a bony, winged skeleton giving the kiss of death.
We try to always put a little fun and cuteness into many of our statues like our extremely cute tortoise sculpture. If you thought we couldn’t put some fun into a gargoyle, then you will be surprised when you see the slightly goofy Babble, the Gothic Gargoyle Sculpture
. This gargoyle is actually smiling, although showing some sharp teeth, and is about a foot tall. He won’t scare the kids and makes a great addition to Halloween décor.

BROWSE THESE ITEMS FOR THE HALLOWEEN SPOOKTACULAR SALE SEPT. 23 THROUGH SEPT. 26!
Design Toscano is always pleased that customers find items such as our large Buddha statue bring tranquility and peace to their gardens, but is that what you want for Halloween, no! This Halloween you might want to consider The Vampire Demon Tombstone Statue
that will bring a little of the sinister and scary to your garden. The demon with his wide wings is depicted above a tombstone in a Gothic style and is almost 2 ft. tall.
Everyone loves our garden cherub statues as they are adorable and so spiritual. At Halloween, though, you want to place some real spirits in your yard and what is better than The Dweller Below Garden Sculpture
. Peeking his head up in your garden is some sort of ghoul, boogeyman or spirit and certainly is in just the right place at this time of year. You can almost imagine him yelling “BOOGITY!”
Nor all of our sculptures for outside are gorgeous animals or Greek heroes; we have plenty of gargoyles and other nightmarish things that you can place outside for Halloween. A great piece that should be very popular is the Rest in Pieces Grim Reaper Tombstone Statue
. Yes, it is the grim reaper in your yard with a scythe in his bony hand, a grin on his skull and leaning on a tombstone that says “Rest in Pieces”.

Our customers are collectors of almost everything that you can imagine and we have all that and more in our Basil Street Gallery
with new items just arriving. Anyone in love with trains and that love to collect train items will be thrilled with the All Aboard Locomotive Train Wall Clock. Coming through the wall, or so it appears, is an old fashioned train engine done in great detail, hand painted in ebony and faux gold. The center of the locomotive is a marvelous clock with roman numerals and quartz movement. This is a great piece.
The Design Toscano collection of angels is marvelous and spiritual, whether they are a stone garden angel
or a statue of peace that can be placed on a table. This angel is called the Angel of Peace Bonded Natural Marble Statue. The angel is a replica of one that was created after World War I. She holds a laurel wreath to the heavens and is standing on a sphere of the earth, all done in wonderful detail in bonded natural marble. What better time for this spiritual symbol of peace.
As much as we all love our various angels, we truly adore our garden cherub statues
. We have a piece that is not only a statue, but a fountain, the Cherubs at Play Sculptural Fountain. The fountain is over four feet tall and consists of a water urn which flows into a larger water fount. The fun little finely sculpted cherubs are scampering all over the urn just wanting to play in the water.
Tuesday, September 13, 2011
We have a very popular sumo wrestler in our collection of Japanese garden statues and now we want to let you know that you can bring the sumo magic inside with our Basho the Sumo Wrestler Sculpture Glass-Topped Table
. Like our outdoor statue of Basho, he is dressed in only his wrestling belt and has his hair tied back in traditional fashion, to create the legs of the table he is bent over in fighting stance. On his back, there is a 3/8” glass top so that all of Basho’s wonder can be seen.
Every garden can be enlivened with the addition of one of our garden cherub statues which are cute and angelic at the same time. One favorite is the Cherub’s Bouquet Statue
which stands over a foot tall. The cherub with its detailed wings is cast in a white finish, but the flowers pop in a beautiful hand painted blue. What a treat this is.
Our stone garden angel statues make majestic statements to the heavens as they stand and reach towards the sky. However, we have some wonderful stone angels on wall plaques also such as the Angel from the Ashes Wall Sculpture
. The wall sculpture is a replica of a Victorian angel, done in fine detail with large wings and her hands together in prayer. The piece would be excellent in a meditation garden.

We have several garden fairies
and all of them brighten up your garden and are adorable. Some people like to create a Victorian theme in their gardens and if that is the case then look no further than our lovely Ella, the Littlest Flower Fairy Statue. Flower fairies are a tradition in Victorian gardens and Ella is a most adorable one standing over a foot tall. She is hand painted by the artist in the paler colors of the Victorian time and is beautiful and cute at the same time.
Our garden cherub statues are also adorable, but they have a slightly more spiritual bent with a touch of heaven in their creation. The Life’s Mysteries Cherub Statue
invokes the wonder of all that is in the universe and heaven to be discovered. The cherub is sculpted crouched down to inspect an interesting snail. His wings are well detailed and he is a questioning spiritual being.
The Design Toscano collection of religious outdoor statues is large and from many different faiths. Some of our most reverent statues are from the Christian faith and create a sense of love and peace in your yard. One such is the Sacred Heart of Jesus Italian Style Garden Statue
. This statue is replica of one from Italy done at the turn of the century and is very well known to many around the world as the definitive representation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Design Toscano is all about sculptures for outside. If you drive through your neighborhood and peer into neighbors’ yards, you will see our pieces outdoors on almost every block and the reason for this is that they are sculptured in fine detail and also our artists have an eye for the unusual. Nipper, the RCA Dog Statue
is a fine example of this. Many people remember this dog tilting his ear to hear his master voice over a gramophone and see this as a great piece of memorabilia. Others don’t remember the trademark, but do love this statue as a well detailed adorable pup and a great addition to the garden.
When one is looking for something totally adorable and undeniably cute, they need to look at our collection of garden cherub statues
. One of these is the In Nature’s Hands Baby Cherub Angel Statue. This sculpture is about the birth of each new season of the year. The baby’s head is shown held in nature’s hands and surrounded with angel wings.
Our artists create animals that are second to none in their fine detail and life like musculature such as our bold tiger sculpture. Now they have created a wall piece that horse lovers will adore and all animal lovers will want to have. This is the Stallion Stampede Wild Horse Wall Sculpture
depicting three wild stallions with their manes flying and heads rearing. The piece is 30” wide and is done in a classic relief style.
