Help!

I am not sure why it rarely occurs to me that I can ask you all questions too when I need some help….but it just did…so I thought I would throw out a few things that I am looking for some input on.

small scale barn lights

1) I have been coveting light fixtures like these for a few years.  Problem is they are both British and I can’t find a US retailer that carries the same for our US electrical system.  I am aware of barn light electric….nothing there has ever been quite the same (too big, wrong finishes, and simply more than I want or need)….I’d like the galvanized finish, a rusted steel finish or a white finish.  I can’t figure why Home Depot or the like hasn’t figured how to make a simple mass market version for a good mass market price.  Anyone got any leads?

These lights are from Baileys and Cox and Cox.

canon ipf700 printer2)  I have a printer that I need to sell.   It is a really nice printer and it has been well cared for and lightly used.   It is a large scale (36″wide) full color printer (Canon IPF700) — that makes garden design plans look beautiful.  It would be perfect for an artist, a designer, a small architecture office…a printshop…anyone with an interest….

It is one generation off the most current model but I have spoken with the local company that services these types of professional printers (and from whom I bought this printer), and I know that they are still sold, actively supported, parts are available should they be needed, and that while I paid around $3000 for it new, they still sell these exact (used and refurbished) printers for around $1200 – $1500.  I’m asking $900….but if you are seriously interested, please, lets talk.

My parents are coming to visit for the holidays and this thing obscurely sits between the spare bedroom and the spare bathroom and I would just like to get it out of the way.

3) I am writing a book….and I am in need of some images (actually a lot of images)….if you have some great photography of gardens that are full of personality, they may be a fit for the book (I am not yet sure how much I can say about the book concept — so I am purposely being a little cagey here with the description).

I would love to see your pictures, I would love to hear from professionals that might have beautiful things in their portfolios.  I am looking for some very specific things…but I just know that if you send me some of your projects or you get in touch, we will unearth something that is just perfect!

Thanks for your help - Rochelle

Whipping Up Some Holiday Containers

Whipping Up Some Holiday Containers

After so many years of installing countless commercial and residential holiday containers, I could do it in my sleep. Seriously, winter containers have to be the easiest thing you can throw together in less than 20 minutes and I’m going to do you a favor and type up the quick and dirty 101 of getting…

A Tale of Improving Weather, Gardening and Anaphylactic Shock

The snow is piling up (over the windows at this point) and my cabin fever is turning into a strange and crazy thing. I think I might be developing photokeratitis. We’ve run out of firewood and the oversized roof-cicles are making me feel like I live in a cage. So it is no wonder that…

A Studio ‘g’ Holiday Shopping List

My wife asked me as we drove with our four kids from Maine to North Carolina, what I would like for Christmas. You know the feeling of not really wanting anything other than warmth, good company, good food, and a healthy, happy family. Well, I am having those feelings this holiday season but there are…
