I have a quick little round up of some exciting products that crossed my desk recently
Green Bricks – An easy (*looking*- I have not used them) way to make that sea paving a little more permeable and a whole lot prettier while you are at it. The bricks hold dirt and fit with other standar pavers so that what ever you choose to plant, it has the structural integrity of the pavers themselves.
“Standard grass stones are not easy to combine with attractive looking brick pavement, and they often don’t meet the technical requirements of a road used by traffic.” — I am excited to see these and all the interesting designs that will surely come along with them in more driveways and parking lots!
Give me an old fashion Weber grill and a bag of charcoal and I am in BBQ heaven, but give me a really pretty spin on the Weber — with gorgeous grates to make my grillings look nice too — well then I might reach BBQ nirvana.
And taking a turn away from modernism…I am loving the beautiful earthy beauty of quality of Esther Studio‘s plant pots. They come in three color ways….and if the pretty factor doesn’t make you fall in love with them — listen to this…
“Esther Pottery was created by landscape designer Steve Siegrist and his wife, sculptor Renèe Lotenero, both avid collectors of rare cacti and succulents. Steve and Renèe began creating their own pots in 2009 with the help of their 11 year old son Ethan. Soon, friends and fellow plant collectors began requesting pots and before long, a family business was born. (Named Esther, as a phonetic blend of all their names, Ethan, Steve and Renèe.) Each pot is unique and created by hand in their Los Angeles studio.” – Esther Studio
I am a sucker for family businesses! And Cats in Pots….
