I like your wind sculptures very much. Having so far in my garden Stainless Steel Ribbons, Gyroscope Nova Wind Spinner and Marble Spiral Nova. Just to say thank you very much for sending me spare crystals for my steel ribbons.

Comment of the Week

I am contacting you today regarding the above order. This was only placed with you on Sunday so imagine my delight when on returning home from work on Tuesday I found my items ready and waiting for me.

I am extremely happy with my products and your service, the quality of my free gift is fantastic.

My garden is being opened under the NGS scheme in June and I will have no hesitation in passing your details on to anyone who may ask me where my beautiful glass balls came from.

I have some long spinners hanging from a tree that people made lots of comments about last year and I fully expect the same thing to happen this year about these glass balls once I get them displayed to their best advantage.

Thank you again.

Road out West !!!

Home2Garden is on the road out west in the United States, searching for gorgeous new wind sculptures, nature inspired gifts and garden accents. One I just loved is this glass and copper piece of true garden art. Created by artisans living in the California desert, inspired by the mountains, blue skies, and desert winds, these are exquisite and enduring.
The Western states of the US are home to many independent artisans and craftsmen who create the most enchanting, wind dancers, wind chimes and giant kinetic wind sculptures.
Sourcing these one of a kind garden ornaments is the best part of Home2garden, there are treasures in the most unlikely little town.
We will share with you photos of some of our favourites as we get out exploring and searching for the most special garden features and focal points that will make the perfect gift for yourself and others.

Comment of the Week!

Wow! Thanks Magic for your super quick response to my email. I don’t think in 35 years of shopping, I have ever known such an efficient, fast-reacting service! Well done you!
I hope my mum likes her stuff – I will certainly be ordering more from you in the future (especially that fantastic designer Buddha Head!).

Best regards

Winner has been chosen!

WOW!! What a marvellous surprise to learn that we had been awarded a prize for having entered the draw! When we did so, it was simply to say how pleased we were with the wind dancers we had ordered and the service that we’d received – never did we imagine that we would gain such a wonderful bonus! Thank you again for such an unexpected Christmas present, and we look forward to receiving the bird baths and bird feeder we’ve chosen which will enhance our garden even more!

Yours delightedly,

Jenny and Ian Mitchell

Beautiful Glass Ornaments

Such beautiful glass ornaments I love the birdbath and will be asking my daughters to buy this for my birthday, the website is great so many lovely items. I bought a friendship ball in Oxford a few weeks ago and I\’m now delighted to find another selection. If you have a catalogue I would love you to send me one.

The clocks have gone back, the afternoons darken so early and as I write the rain is lashing against the window, Winter is on its way. Our office is filling up with all sorts of Christmas gifts and gifts for the garden. Please take a moment to click on our latest staked Wind Sculptures, the Ballerina and the Pinwheel on the Wind Sculpture page. These are two wonderful wind dancers, unique and mesmerising! They both would make a delightful Christmas gift for anyone who finds kinetic wind sculptures both fun and fascinating. I am a real fan of them, I love the way they interact with the elements. It is not just the wind but because we use stainless steel, the sun reflects and sparkles off the shiny surface, bouncing light off the ground and walls! It is beautiful!

Another product that comes into it’s own in the winter is the Rainbow Bubble which one will find on a frosty morning, has turned into a giant pearl! The way we have had the glass blown and splashed with iridescence on the crown creates a milky opalescence effect that is enchanting. It is gratifying to know that our Rainbow Bubbles, gazing balls, tealight holders are all mouth blown using 100% recycled vodka bottles!

We have many other new products for winter, a large selection of solar decoration and lights, Fun and whimsical christmas decorations made from natural, organic material,
treats for gardeners, and bathing products to soak away the cold with.

The light and the colour at this time of year have a soft muted palette, there is still gold in the trees, the berries are brightening, and many shades of green and brown surround us in Chorleywood. It is as if nature is holding her breath for but a moment before winter truly arrives.

What a busy autumn it has been! Trade shows, retail shows, and creating sensory gardens for local schools whose children are severely disabled. This is what we, at Home2garden enjoy the most!
It is wonderful to turn whatever space is available, whether a garden or just a cement courtyard into a space of stimulation and enchantment with our products. The children, many completely wheelchair bound, are able to look out and see our Wind Sculptures, Wind Dancers, Sun Catchers and Wind Chimes come alive and play in the elements.
It does not matter if the day is rainy, sunny, or even snowy, they will be moving and changing all through the day! When the weather is fine they are allowed out doors. Then, the children are fascinated by the magical Rainbow Bubbles which enchant them with their rainbow colours and reflections of fast moving clouds above. The wind chimes fill their ears with music. It has been a rewarding experience working with places like Heritage House in Chesham, and meeting so many dedicated personnel and parents who strive to make this special place the best it can be. Most of the children will attend this school from very early in life until they must leave at 18 years old.

I was exhibiting at the Royal Windsor Christmas Fair this past weekend and many severely disabled children were being taken around the stalls. All would stop at our stand and the parents would park the wheelchairs in front and encourage the children’s awareness of all the spinning, colourful items being displayed. The children could not speak but there were many sounds of joy and approval – it was so pleasing to me, I let them each have a little something to take home, giving things away has a way of making one feel prosperous in their hearts, if not their pockets!

As the nights and days grow darker and colder, perhaps think of gifts for those who are housebound, or an elderly isolated person, who would really enjoy something unusual and beautiful to contemplate and enjoy as it plays in the ever-changing elements of nature. A sensory gift for the garden is for all of us to enjoy, but especially pleasing to those who are most restricted by illness or disability.
