Insert Maniacal Laughter Here

Last month I had the pleasure of visiting New York City for the International Gift Fair.  Though I didn't have much of an opportunity to do New York-ish things, I did find a veritable treasure trove of incredible products - some of which have made their way to the house already.  

Let me introduce you to our newest additions...

From the delightfully twisted mind of Fred Conlon, and brought to life by his talented hands, scattered hither and yon throughout the house are a variety of creatures you will find puglicious.  Don't go to the dictionary.  I made that word up.  

From the Army Ant to the creme de la creme in this collection of "Garden Art That Doesn't Suck", the Gnome Be Gones, they are at once repulsive and adorable.  Delicious and repugnant.  I want to pick them up and hug them but am afraid of their many pointed teeth.  

Can't you just see this fellow with some pretty flowers spilling out of his maw?

Hungry for a bite of... ankle?  Better feed him some daisies quick!

Carting off their nemesis to a fate unknown.

Ain't she sweet?

Venus Fly Trap complete with magnetic Plug Bug.

Wine caddy.

These fellows are just a taste of the variety to be found in the House.  To fully appreciate them stop in for a latte and to see what else is new!



  1. How fun is that?! hiiii! It's Belle w/ Paper Girl Productions! We met at Park Theatre during a show in December :)

  2. When these brilliant creatures first stared at me in the store, I found their menacing stance strangely attractive. My first acquantance with this "Garden art" went well, and although I cannot adopt all of them, I don't yet dare to play favorites as to not offend any of the others.
