Crayon Garden Sculpture, Lubbock, Texas

While I find this to be stunningly beautiful as a piece of art, I can’t help but wonder about the practicality of this particular landscape installation.  Using thousands of large crayons, artist Herb Williams created a field of sculpture flames for Unwanted Visitor: Portrait of Wildfire at the National Ranching Heritage Center in Lubbock, Texas.  My concern….will these not melt in the hot Texas sun?  Perhaps it is only temporary, it would certainly be a fantastic permanent display.

    thanks for your help!!

McKinnon and Harris Furniture

As outdoor furniture makers go, sometimes it is a sea of sameness, which is why I love McKinnon and Harris.  Their stuff is simply more beautiful and interesting than the rest.  I don’t know any other place to get such a beautiful Tennis Chair. I mean really.  I don’t play tennis, but want the chair…

Before & After Garden: Larry’s Makeover’s

Larry O’Neil operates a Design and Build Firm in Jacksonville, Florida and these are a couple of his makeovers.  The deck is so much more interesting with its curvy shape than the standard rectangle that an unassisted homeowner might tend toward building.  And adding the tree that grows through the deck is a great touch,…
