Those giant cherries reminded me of these giant ears of corn statues my sister showed me in Columbus, OH.

This crazy fun! Love that crazy buddha. Wouldn't want it, but love it.

I ADORE those couches! They'd be so much fun to use in a design! :) You know I'm gonna have to do it now... I saw this one called the Angry Mom at a sculpture garden in Grand Rapids. So funny!

Much Love,
Trissta

Haha! These would freak me out if I stumbled across them at night.

Lorena said...

I actually like the couch...
does that make me weird ?

I love the couches, but I want the gargoyles. So awesome.

Annabelle Archer said...

I love the arm chairs and the couches.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Are the sofas for real... they'd be pretty awful in a living room, but outside they're kind of cool.

Lara said...

the giant man boobs are kinda disturbing but I LOVE the Chesterfields! Would be so cool to have in your back yard!

Claire Kiefer said...

Those are funny although the first one grosses me out a bit, ha.

Phoenix said...

Those cherries are rad! So is the outdoor sofas... I hope they are as soft as they look but I doubt it. Makes me want to nap in the sunshine!

Trixie said...

I love the cherries and the couches make me laugh. But that first one, man that's what I see sometimes when I look in the mirror no joke. I was trying to remember when I modeled for it :D

Kathryn said...

The giant cherry ones are kind of cool, but the furniture ones look kind of trashy...possibly because it just looks like petrified versions of what you would see all the time in a local trailer park.

That first one is like out of somebody's nightmare.

The last ones look like constipated gargoyles - certainly more funny than scary.

Caroline said...

Interesting...the first one made me laugh out loud!

I'm holding out for the Bigfoot in the SkyMall catalog.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

omg, I would laugh SO hard if I saw that fat man in someone's garden, haha. I think that would look great when you least expect it. Like a perfectly, manicured yard and then there's homeboy in the corner by the croquet set.

NellieVaughn said...

I wouldn't mind those cherries. They are, by far, my favorite fruit. The color is just so gorgeous.

Shelley said...

I'm kind of in love with the sofa! They are pretty awesome :) I finally updated...its been too long

Ashton King said...

I love the first and last one. The gargoyles definitely made me chuckle :)

fabulousjunk said...

wow.. I am always amazed at the art work you post on your blog. I can't believe they even make this stuff, and yet I want all of it... if I had a yard :(

I could definitely use one or two of these for my little garden in the city:)

Katie said...

I could use one of those couches right now as I'm outside soaking up the little bits of sunshine in England!
