Gift and Gift Ideas

Chris at Gift and Gift Ideas wrote and asked if I would consider providing a link to her website. I'm always pleased when someone requests a link so went to visit Chris's site the same day, and I'm glad I did. Gift and Gift Ideas carries some unique figurines and water fountains. With the interest in outdoor living spaces, many of these sculptures and collectibles will really jazz things up. Chris also has another site, Global Discount Products. You can find all kinds of things here along with a large selection of garden decor such as bird feeders, birdbaths, garden furniture and windchimes (always my favorite). Go pay Chris and her husband, Dick, a visit at both sites.

Bug Off Instant Screen

It's not exactly a garden accessory, but essential to outdoor enjoyment. Bug Off Instant Screen allows you to have a screen where you previously could not. My husband found this product when we were thinking of installing outswing french doors. Outswings don't come with a screen, so this appears to make a great alternative. This screen opens in the middle to allow you to go in and out without struggling with a regular screen door. According to the manufacturer it "closes perfectly every time". If you're looking for a screen door, check it out.

Aaron's Rainbarrels

I received an email the other day from Aaron telling me about his website and requesting a link. I immediately went to visit and was impressed with what I saw. Aaron sells rain barrels that are made from recycled plastic and include a gutter down spout tube as well as an overflow valve to connect your garden hose. The best part on top of all these great features? Shipping is included in the price! Yes - shipping is included and as we all know shipping can make or break a deal. Aaron has a nice variety of barrels and is also willing to customize a rain barrel. I've talked about rain barrels before and haven't ordered mine yet, but I may just be tempted to do so now from Aaron. Go visit his site and let me know what you think.

Time to relax

Now that we have our patio poured, my husband and I have been discussing what we'll do with all the space. One of the things we've talked about is adding a hammock. Just the thought of lying in a hammock and sipping a cool drink brings summer that much closer. fits the bill. They carry a huge variety of hammock brands, styles and stands and their prices appear pretty reasonable. I particularly like their logo - Accomplish nothing.
