Recently, my friends at Uncommon Goods contacted me and asked if I'd like to pick a product from their extensive line up to receive and review.
Well, you all know me and gardening. I chose this very heavy cement head planter! I've always wanted one of these.
I love to garden, and this will look fantastic on my patio.
I'm not sure quite where on my big patio that I'm going to put the cement head planter come spring. But I will be planting something small, like succulents or sedum, inside it, so that they will spill out and over the head.
I can't wait to see how it looks. It is so different from anything I already have out there now.
If you have an avid gardener on your list for the holidays, this would make a great present.
Or this ever blooming flower sculpture. The bloom that never fades. Isn't it pretty? I love the shape of the leaves.
I could put one of these in a tall container of grasses and have the flower be peeking out beyond the plumes.
Are you into composting? I'm still on the fence on this one. Here is a great way to get started....
I truly respect the work of artists. No matter their craft, I hold them in the highest esteem for using the talent they've been given.
Have you heard of Uncommon Goods? They care very much about artistic talent.
Here is a bit of info about them.
UncommonGoods (www.uncommongoods.com) is an online marketplace offering creatively designed, high-quality merchandise at affordable prices. They believe that creativity and the expression of individuality represent two great human treasures.
They support artists and help them get their artwork out into the world for all to see.
UncommonGoods was founded in 1999 and is privately held and headquartered in NYC.
Someone who was very important to me, and who has long since passed, used to tell me that creativity was the highest form of intelligence. And I always appreciated her view, as she was a professor of education.
No matter your needs, or who you need to buy a gift for, I think you'll find something for most everyone at Uncommon Goods. And feel good about helping others less fortunate at the same time. That is a win/win. And one you can feel good about.
