Elemental/ Spring Spotlight on Our Male Artists


Hi blogging friends...... Many of us are now starting to turn our attention to fixing up our gardens, and so I thought it would be fitting to turn our attention to some of the wonderful items that our male artisans on Etsy have created. Above is a gorgeous garden plant stake created by metal sculptor, Dillon Chandler. http://www.etsy.com/shop/VonChandler . I love this sunflower from his flower stake series. Great for adding both color and functionality to your garden.
I stopped by the etsy shop of  Simply Rustic Woodworking and found this awesome looking Cedar 13 room Purple Martin  House ( more like a Mansion!!)



What lucky birds wouldn't love hanging out in this!!
And beats having them nest in your fireplace vent ( like they did at my house) !! LOL.....
I heard chirping in my fireplace and discovered that the 'Martins' had made themselves right at home. Find this and so much more at http://www.etsy.com/shop/simplyrustic

Another great discovery was at the Etsy shop of http://www.etsy.com/shop/blackcrowforge








This cute little Mason Jar Birdfeeder will add whimsy and a great spot for your feathered friends to catch a snack.






How about watering your potted plants in style with this lovely anagama wood fired salted stoneware watering can from http://www.etsy.com/shop/landrydeese



And your fragrant cooking herbs can be readily available in this pretty planter from http://www.etsy.com/shop/jonwhitney

 High fired stoneware inspired by nature. Fabulous!!












A fun find is from the shop of http://www.etsy.com/shop/FredMorseArt , a multi medium artist.
One of the many whimsical 'Animals with Attitude' pieces in Fred's shop is this adorable fishing chicken garden sculpture.... Something to add a little Eggcitement to your garden!!  I know.....but I just couldn't help myself..... LOL......


Fred thinks this is a chicken is a guy, but it looks like a 'chick' to me....... and I love her!! Stop by his shop for wonderfully expressive paintings, prints, and ceramics.

And finally, let the wind sing to you with this pretty Heart Wind chime from http://www.etsy.com/shop/crrgary



Crooked River Ranch Glass Art offers gorgeous wind chimes, glass pendants, suncatchers and jewelry boxes.....
There is so much creativity to be celebrated from the male artists on Etsy.......please join me in checking out their shops and learning more about the beautiful and useful items they have created! .....and Happy Gardening!!
