Curviness: “A line that deviates from straightness in a smooth, continuous fashion.”
Sometimes I like straight lines. Other times I like more curviness in my design. Today was a curvy day and I found some items that I thought would make nice additions to the gardens of the curvey-inclined.
1 – This fabulous 12″ x 9″ iron welcome sign is from Modern Artisans. At $24.99 it is a “welcome” change from those ubiquitous lawn flags I see in Maryland suburbia.
2 – Do you Etsy? Etsy is the online store for handmade goods. This flower garden fabric is from Australian designer Danielle Smeets. Two pieces of 35 cm X 45 cm (about 13.77″ x 17.72″) fabric go for $14 in U.S. dollars. At that size, these would make colorful curvy pillows. Danielle also has other fabric products in her shop Of Paper and Thread.
3 – I love the furniture at Archie’s Island Furniture. I just ordered the Swedish bench in kiwi. But I wish I had a place for this bonfire-colored loveseat. Even at $875, you have to admit it’s a lot of wallop for the buck.
4 – My feathered friends are an important part of the garden. This pagoda nest box from Garden Artisans reminds me of a sleigh bed for birds! It’s a stylish birdhouse for $156.
And by the way…
This was my first attempt at a fancy PhotoShop montage. I took a PhotoShop class a while back and have been gradually expanding my skills. I consider this on the more advanced side.
