After a winter that has been one of the coldest on record, the warm airs of spring will be a welcome change indeed. It might be cold outside today, but we can expect much warmer weather in a few weeks. When that happens, it will be high time to check out the garden and think of how we can decorate for the season. Putting garden fairies in the backyard or decorating with a cute baby animal yard statue is always a good bet but bright colors are even more important when decorating for the spring.
Yellows, shades of orange, and bright cheerful blues can compliment the same hues of the rainbow that show themselves on the branches of flowering trees, bushes, and tulips. The Regal Peacock Garden Sculpture is a good choice to showcase these and other colors during spring and on through the summer. Pair it with the bright blues and yellows on the Polly in Paradise Parrot Sculpture to add a dash of spring color to your favorite backyard tree.
The "Giant Garden Gecko Lizard" Statue will also add a touch of very welcome green to an early spring backyard. This sleek and unique animal garden statue also acts as beautiful wall decor for the garden or inside the home.

There is certain decor suited for every room in the house. For example, you wouldn't want to put a cozy couch in the bedroom or brightly colored, culinary-themed decorations in the den. The right type of decor also lends a certain look to the rooms where they are put on display. You might want to see a simple set of table and chairs for a dining area in a cottage or cabin but most of us would rather sit down to a slightly more elegant table in the home. If you would like to take dining room decor a step further and turn that part of the abode into the most distinguished place in the home, buy a beautiful gothic table.
A Gothic style table lends a truly royal look to any home because most are modeled after antiques found in the old storied halls of Victorian estates and European castles. The Effingham Gryphon Library Table is a solid mahogany furniture item with beautiful carved motifs. Whether this table is put to use in the library or as a distinguished dining table, it always make for stunning functional decor. Or, you could leave the Effingham Gryphon in the library and save the dining room for the majestic likes of the Lord Raffles Lion Table. This mahogany work of art is seven feet in length and makes a distinguished statement in any room of the house.

Some garden statuary lends a bit of extra color to the flower beds, other garden statues are meant to be cute but unobtrusive, and outdoor garden water fountains combine the beauty of a sculpture with the natural music of falling water. However, a few choice garden statues have such a spectacular bearing that they seem to fall into a category of their own. These are the statues that act as a centerpiece work of art for any garden, and are the sculptures fit to be decor in the finest of hotel lobbies and dining establishments.
We have several such works of art in our collection of resin garden statues. One of those magnificent sculptures is the Giant Scale Easter Island Ahu Akivi Moai Monolith Statue. This magnificent sculpture is carefully and closely modeled after the huge stone head statues that dot the countryside of the most remote inhabited island on the planet. Put this garden statue in the yard or in a place of business and people will be talking about it for years.
It might be tough to match the stunning appearance of an Easter Island Monolith statue but our Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe Statue comes close. This fantastic animal yard statue literally stands out in any yard on account of its eight foot height!

Animal garden statues can turn an everyday garden into green space punctuated with wild beauty. While cute animal sculptures certainly have their place, detailed, realistic resin garden statues of such wildlife as wolves, deer, zebras, and other magnificent creatures lend a wild touch to any backyard. Guests won't help but admire them and that is why the same types of wild animal statues also make excellent decor in hotel gardens and other places of business.
The big cats in particular stand out for their savage beauty and the Tiger is the most magnificent of them all. Its black and orange striped pelt is a beautiful sight to behold but don't let those colors fool you. The colors and pattern on the coat of the Tiger makes it nearly invisible as it stalks prey in the tall grass of India and the jungles of southeast Asia.
The Powerful Pounce: Sumatran Tiger Statue captures the striking, dangerous beauty of the Sumatran Tiger with very realistic details. When garden and house guests see this fantastic animal yard statue, don't be surprised if it stops them in their tracks. They will pause because they won't be sure if the statue is a real animal, if you have somehow acquired a stuffed Tiger, or if the animal can actually be a garden sculpture.

Spring might be just around the corner, but for many of us, it's still just as freezing cold as it was a couple weeks ago. Although you shouldn't let the cold weather fool you into not getting ready for spring with new resin garden statues, it's easy to understand why it can seem pointless to look for sculptures for outside. If the cold weather is putting a damper on shopping for outdoor statues today, you might want to look for sculptures suited for other areas of the home or place of business. One of those places is the library or reading room and the right types of garden statues can be wonderful for augmenting the quiet, enchanting atmosphere of those and other places dedicated to books.
The British Reading Fairy Garden Statue is perfect decor for the library. With open book on her lap, the attention of our little garden fairy is absolutely taken by reading her favorite story. Display this beautiful, classic statue in the library to help put the focus on books.
Busts are also very much suited to the library or reading room. The Caesar Augustus of Prima Porta Grand-Scale Sculptural Bust may inspire visitors to read up on ancient Roman history while the William Shakespeare Grand-Scale Sculptural Bust pays homage to one of the all time theater and literature greats.

Garden fairies are classic, fantasy-themed decor. While some do look very nice when used as interior decor, most are much more suited for the backyard. This beautiful garden statuary form has been used in European backyards for centuries but didn't become truly popular until the 19th century, especially in Victorian gardens. For this reason, the most impressive, antique garden fairy statues are typically seen in Victorian era gardens in England and other parts of Europe. Fortunately, though, you don't have to go to an auction to purchase classic, Victorian, garden fairy statues. If you don't mind paying far less for high quality, Victorian-themed fairy statues, all you have to do is visit the Design Toscano site.
We carry a wide selection of exquisite garden fairy sculptures, including several that would look right at home in old English gardens. The Pondering Fairy of Essex Garden Statue shows the life-like, detailed features of a modern fairy statue while retaining the classic beauty of a Victorian-themed sculpture. Pair this enchanting sculpture with the classic Reading Fairy of the Humanities Sculpture and your backyard will be graced with a beautiful cast iron sculpture of the same quality and caliber as the cast iron decor found in distinguished British parks and gardens. Put the The British Reading Fairy Garden Statue on display to complete the Victorian look.

It may be easy to find garden statues but it's far from easy to find high quality garden decor for a good price. A big part of the problem stems from the places where people often end up shopping for garden sculptures and other types of decor. If you look for sculptures and decor for the interior of home and business at the nearest big box stores, don't expect to find unique, high quality decor. Most of the items they carry are going to be cheap, mass produced decorations that just don't add anything special to the backyard.
Those big box stores are the place to shop if you are looking for decor that doesn't last very long, won't be admired by garden guests, and looks pretty much like the decorations at a dozen other backyards in the neighborhood.
However, if you hope to find fantastic animal garden statues like the Lioness with Cub Statue, or exquisite and artistic garden fairies like Rhiannon the Archer Garden Fairy Statue, the place to shop is at the Design Toscano site. Browse our huge selection of high quality decor for every decorating theme and you will find everything from stunning garden statues to beautiful replicas of antique furniture for great prices. Since we also have sales on a regular basis, it's worth it to check our site every day of the week.

Garden statuary can take the form of classic, inspirational sculptures such as a grand scale stone garden angel, a beautiful cascading fountain, gargoyles, or other breathtaking sculptures. However, the statues in the garden don't have to be big statues that stop you in your tracks for admiration or contemplation. They can also be incredibly cute statues that put a smile on your face and lend adorable charm to the garden. One such statue is the tiger cub animal yard statue and at Design Toscano, we have the cutest selection of tiger cub statues you will ever see.
The Sitting Bengal Tiger Cub Statue is a high quality, gorgeous tiger statue in our grand-scale wildlife animal collection. The fierce and lovely eyes of this baby Tiger have the same heart melting effect as a real, live Tiger cub. This statue also has the same big paws, ears, and black stripes on orange coat as the majestic big cat. It's just too cute! Pair this beautiful animal statue with the Lying Down Bengal Tiger Cub Statue to give it some company.
The Up a Tree Tiger Cub Statues are another pair of adorable baby animal sculptures. One lounges and makes its best attempt at a roar while the other is still trying to get to the top of the tree.

Spring is going to come to town in a month or maybe a month in a half for those who reside in the north. We are very much looking forward to those warmer days (who isn't?), especially to spend some quality time in the garden. Sure, you could still hang out in the garden today but it's just not the same with the snow, bare branches, and general lack of natural color. One of the many ways to prepare for those warm spring days is by checking out your collection of garden statuary to see if the backyard could use a touch of decor. While going over and picking out garden decor to welcome the spring weather, take a look at your animal garden statues. If you don't feel like putting out the same old items or don't even have an animal statue, it's probably time to buy one or two animal garden sculptures.
If you enjoy the great outdoors and the wild side of nature, the wonderfully textured "The Expert Fisherman" Black Bear Statue might be just what you need. This realistic depiction of a Black Bear is as close to the real thing as having a big Black Bear stroll right through the backyard. If you would rather add an African touch to the yard, you might like the Lioness of Namibia Statue. However, if these statues aren't cute enough for the garden, we also have adorable statues like Pancho the Burro Planter Sculpture and the Carrot Caper Swinging Bunny Rabbit Statue.

One of the beautiful things about garden statuary is the huge variety of forms they take and themes they can follow. While one can always stick to decorating the backyard with garden gnomes and garden fairies, nowadays, we can also put such statues on display as gargoyles, beautiful angels, and highly detailed animals. If the garden could use a change in decor, and lacks an animal yard statue, you might want to consider putting something like Zairen the Zebra Sculpture on display. This striking, realistic sculpture adds a beautiful, exotic look to any backyard and looks even better when complimented with a fun animal statue like "Pongo, the Hanging Baby Orangutan" Statue.
If you already have enough animal statues in the yard, you might want to go for a statue or two that is a bit more classic in nature. A stone garden angel such as the Angel of Patience Sculpture and the cute In God's Grace Angel Statue are just two of many fine angel statues in our collection.
Or, perhaps the time has come to put a sculptural fountain in the backyard. The Medici Lion Four-Tier Fountain is a majestic fountain fit for the most elegant of gardens while the Quenching a Big Thirst Sculptural Fountain entertains with its big, thirsty Saint Bernard.

Asian-themed resin garden statues provide a lovely, peaceful touch to gardens but some look just as amazing when displayed inside the home, or when used as interior decor for a business. During the summer, the Giant Foo Dog of the Forbidden City Sculpture makes an impressive garden statement, especially when used as a sculpture near a back door or other entrance to the home. However, during the winter months, this Asian symbol of strength and protection acts as powerful interior decor. This statue might look best when placed near an entrance to a hallway or inside the den.
Statues of Chinese deities also make an impressive statement when displayed inside the home or inside an office. This classic statue of the Goddess Guan Yin Seated on a Lotus is painted with subtle colors and makes a beautiful addition to any room or place of business.
We also have small, desk top, Asian-themed statues in our collection including sculptural busts like the Sukhothai Buddha Asian Sculptural Bust and replicas of antique sculptures like the Emperor Xuanzong's Fat Horse Asian Statue. Both of these quality interior decor items are carefully modeled after original sculptures found in ancient temples and modern museums.
Enjoy 20% off these and other indoor statues at the Design Toscano site by the end of today, February 20th.

Some garden statuary can also be used as interior decor. In fact, depending on the situation, certain statues can look even better when displayed inside the home instead of in the backyard. Even garden fairies can look great when shown in the home, including such lovely garden statues as Fiona, the Flower Fairy Sculpture. This wonderful garden fairy also looks just as good when used as interior decor because it shows such exquisite details, soft lines, and doesn't take up a lot of space. Put this lovely little statue next to a potted plant, or in a sun room for full effect. Compliment it with the equally beautiful Fairy of the West Wind Sitting Statue.
Interior statues can also be used as functional decor. The Les Filles Joyeuses Neoclassical Pedestal Urn is one such sculpture and makes for a lovely place to display an ornamental plant, flowers, or to simply use as an exquisite indoor statue. Another type of functional indoor statue is the sculptural lamp. We have several of these wonderful lighting options in our collection including the fantastic Goddess' Offering Mermaid Sculptural Floor Lamp.
Enjoy 20% off these and other indoor statues at the Design Toscano site from today until tomorrow, February 20th.

It's never too soon to get ready for spring. Although the front yard might be covered in snow, and the backyard trees look leafless and gaunt, spring will be here before you know it. It will be a relief to walk outside without having to wear a winter coat and an exciting time to get reacquainted with the backyard oasis. Although we have to wait for warm weather to do any degree of work in the garden, we don't have to wait to buy new resin garden statues. In fact, it's better to buy them now while you have plenty of time rather than when the garden needs your time during the spring.
When looking for new garden decor, there are literally hundreds of garden statues to choose from but some of the most evocative are the greenman sculptures. This unique type of decor literally puts a face on trees and dates back to pre-Christian times in northern Europe when people used to worship nature. The Oak King Greenman Wall Sculpture is a classic greenman item that lends an old, enchanting look to any garden. It will also look right at home in conjunction with Gothic decor. To decorate the walls with a pair of haunting greenman sculptures, put the Somerset Greenwoman & Greenman Sculptures on display.

One of the first main reasons for putting sculptures on display was for religious purposes. People sculpted figures that were representations of what they took to be sacred and those statues were cared for and shown in temples, grottos, and other sacred sites. In modern times, many of us continue this tradition by putting a statue of a stone garden angel or two in the backyard, or putting Christian-themed sculptures or a statue of a large Buddha on display. No matter which type of religious statue is used, we hope to showcase sculptures that inspire peace, goodwill, spirituality, and encourage us to be better people. For these reasons, the best religious statues tend to be ones that evoke emotions with a combination of drama and beauty.
The lovely Basking in God's Glory Little Girl Statue showcases those factors with sincere, simple beauty. With arms spread wide and a look of joy on her face, the young girl in this sculpture shows the type of happiness that many of us strive to feel. The little birds on her arms add a cute final touch to this wonderful sculpture.
The Ascension: Grande Scale Christ Sculpture is another dramatic statue that showcases Jesus Christ rising from the cross before ascending to heaven. Buy this statue for inspiration in a beautiful, Christian-themed garden.

Although it might sounds like impossible, wishful thinking, spring is on the way! In many parts of the USA, spring will be here in less than a month, and in a mere two months, everywhere else. The snow and ice of this year's challenging winter will be melting and replaced by fresh green grass, and it will be time to put out your favorite garden statuary decor. To help you get ready for spring, we invite you to peruse our collection of new garden statues.
These are the latest in our collection of fine decor and include such beautiful animal garden statues as the "Veiled Chameleon" Statue. Each of the scales, horns, and other detailed features on this stunning statue were painted by hand to heighten its realism. If the garden could use something a bit more cute in appearance, check out the absolutely adorable little Sleeping Pig Statue.
If the garden needs a better welcoming sign, buy the new Dolphin Welcome Statue to greet guests with the soothing blue colors of the sea and the endearing beauty of dolphins at play. After guests walk in to the garden, augment the happy, cute spring atmosphere with the grand scale Gao Gao Giant Panda Statue.

There's nothing wrong with classic garden statues or high quality sculptures of gnomes and angels but some of us wouldn't mind a sculpture or two that is simply unique, breathtaking, and nothing short of incredible. Those are some big shoes to fill but our selection of fantasy statues are definitely up to the challenge. These are the sculptures in our collection that represent creatures, beings, and ideas from the boundless realms of imagination. Put any of these statues in the yard and the garden will take on far more character than you have ever dreamed of:
The Abominable Snowman Life-Size Yeti Statue: This massive bigfoot statue showcases the wild, untamed stature of the Sasquatch along with the mystery of the huge, furry, two-footed Hominids rumored to roam the snow fields of the Himalayas.
