Yearning for urns part 2 and new goodies!

Hi there, the weather was sooo spectacular today. It was in the mid 60's and felt positively balmy! It was such a treat to be able to walk outside with just a sweater and hard to believe a week ago we had SNOW! Teddy was thrilled and did a little sunbathing:) Enjoying a relaxing weekend and happy to have the downtime!

I get so excited when I get new things in, I am truly like a little kid in a candy shop... and I got some gorgeous new pieces from my very popular and very affordable statuary line. Normally these are made to order and take on average 4 weeks however in anticipation of the holidays I ordered multiples of these new styles, as they are on the small to medium side size wise so are multi functional inside and out and are just so beautiful.

For those of you who do not know of my online statuary and planter line, as hard as it is to believe these are fiberglass NOT heavy antique statuary. They are molded after beautiful classic old world designs but can be picked up with one hand! The best of both worlds.....then you add the special antiquing that has been applied and these are just nothing short of spectacular! Many take these with them when they go to their local nursery to play around with various plants and convenient is that? You sure can't do that with stone!

My mind is racing with all the possibilities and ways to use these, especially over the coming holidays! Take a look.......

 Pair 1- practical and could be used or sooo many things. I see orchids or a beautiful pointsetta, or a pile of pine cones and evergreen, how about as a wine cooler filled with ice! 12" x 12" x 10" $ 85.00

 PAIR 2- This one is so elegant, I could see a small boxwood or boxwood ball, a large pointsetta or holiday plant 12.5" x 12.5" x 12.5" $85.00

 Pair 3- A great one for orchids or a boxwood ball, also great size for a bottle of champagne! 10" x 10" x 10" $64.00

 Pair 4 - Pretty with nothing but would be perfect (since it is shallow) for evergreens and pinecones or an orchid and I would also try this as a crudite display  as I was recently inspired to do...this would be perfect. Also great for soaps in a powder room!  8" x 14" x 9" $75.00

Pair 5- Love the square shape and regal old world design. This one is screaming for a huge pointsetta for the holidays or a large orchid arrangement. In the summer I would put a large hydrangea plant in it...beautiful!  15" x 15" x 11" $110.00

 Mr. Teddy sunbathing......and of course watching over yours truly to be sure I don't slack!

Now lets take a look at all of the amazing ways to use urns...the possibilities are endless! Have any ideas of your own?  Some of these are my own, some are my customers pictures of what they have done with the urns they bought from me and the rest are online inspiration.....

And how I have already started fiddling around with my new urns.....
 Perfect for my little white pumpkins that are still going strong

 Boxwood balls look beautiful in this style planter and literally look good anywhere!

 Love the boxwood topiary in this regal!

 Love the idea of them as a soap dish!

 My powder room

 Don't think I have gone mad..... I happened to have these trees in  my garage and the pine cones so quickly threw them in the planter to see how they would look, can see a pair flanking the fireplace in my family room.....

 Wow who knew there were so many spectacular ways to use urns!! OK if you want to get your hands on one of these beautiful planters, just refer to the item pair number and email me. They are in stock (4-6 pieces of each) so limited availability. Last day to custom order from this line to ensure delivery for Christmas is Nov.20th which is just in a few days! Thanks for stopping in and enjoy your weekend!
