Do you like having statues and other non-plant decorations in your garden?

The garden gnomes must be most famous of them all, but obviously not all folks like them. :)
I like practical decorations the most. I fell in love with these little lights which resemble a rock.
They're made of some kind of resin plastic material. They blend very well in the surroundings without looking too cheap. :)
Here is a photo of similar ones (not my photo) http://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Images/Products/size_3/GGROK3.JPG

I'm not so sure about statues, to be honest they creep me out if they look like real people.
I'd love to have a fountain though, this would be perfect:



I've also found some more pictures of interesting decorations:

That wagon sure looks so alluring. Those metal flowers too look quaintly beautiful. I wish I had some space at least.
I like real objects used for decoration rather than statues.

Very nice one maddie, it took a moment to realize that those are shoes, some kind of Crocs knock-offs.
Also, old wheelbarrows and bathtubs make nice containers too in the garden :)

I couldn't get the first one to stay online ... trying again, because this is the one I thought of first ...

I love garden art, and these are gorgeous examples of it in this thread, very cool.

I'm going to try to post a picture I have here - yay! that worked!

Okay, this is a metal birdbath I got at the thrift store for ten bucks, filled with stones I also got at that same thrift store - they were all together in a bag for two dollars.

I did try the birdbath for its intended purpose but the place I put it was not pleasing to the birds. Not enough cover apparently. As I had another birdbath that they DID like, I decided to "make art" with this one instead.

I have a better photo too but I'll have to hunt for it.

I am going to have to try the "succulent-garden-in-the-garden-clogs-idea", that is really clever and attractive.

I absolutely love this decoration, it's so colorful, it makes me smile and it reminds me of spring...oh spring, where are you?

Maddie, this spoon decoration looks wonderful, it reminds me of origami, it's very creative.
What do you think about this car? I'm not too fond of cars but I find this one quite cute:p :

I love simple things for the garden..I don't like it too crowded so I opt for just my birdbath and a angel statue that was given to me ....I also love and have windchimes in my yard.

I wouldn't mind having something like that wagon. It could be used not only for decoration, but to help with transporting garden materials. You would have to get lucky in finding one that looks authentically old, though.

I love this fountain. It looks very unique and nontraditional but also not too modern - which in my opinion is extremely lovely. I'm sure it's very relaxing to sit next to it and to watch the water flowing:

i was asking a question on the pond forum and took this pic. it reminded me of the big bowl fountain above, but this is a repurposed tabletop fountain so it's only about a foot high

Gnomes!!!!, you've got to love 'em or hate 'em but the're here to stay. They even go on holidays.
Ornimental fountains, with the sound of trickling water, can really set off a garden.
But hey, have the best of both worlds. A couple of gnomes frolicking in the cascade of water from the fountain. ;)

have't seen gazing balls mentioned. i picked up a mirror one last year when biglots started selling out summer stuff, then got two more later in yellow and blue. they sit together on a mound i'm tying to fill with flowers. i'm keeping an eye out for a red one also to have the three primary colors.

Philphine, this fountain looks so pretty, I really like it!
Currently, I dream about a swing like this, it looks lovely and it would be fun to sit on it:

This lawn is decorated with used and thrown spoons... take a look...



And here is some awesome natural garden art... Oh! my it takes my breath away..
I actually love the spoon decorations. I wonder what inspires someone to look at a plastic spoon and think, "Yeah that would make an awesome garden decoration."
