I am always looking for fun ways to add a little personality to my yard and garden. Today, I present a few finds that are sure to turn heads and elicit a smile or two.

FF: The Horse Head Squirrel Feeder from Archie McPhee

ff4If you can’t beat them, have fun with them. You can’t keep the squirrels out of your birdfeeders, so give them a feeder of their own and have a laugh at the same time with the fabulous Horse Head Squirrel Feeder from Archie McPhee.

About The Horse Head Squirrel Feeder from Archie McPhee: “You have a Creepy Horse Mask, why not the squirrels in your yard? It turns out it’s even funnier on a squirrel. This hanging vinyl 6-1/2″ x 10″ squirrel feeder makes it appear as if any squirrel that eats from it is wearing a Horse Mask. You’ll laugh every morning as you drink your coffee while staring out the window into your backyard. Now, if only the squirrels would do their own version of the Harlem Shake video. Hole on top for hanging with string (not included).”

FF: The Dachshund Watering Can from Parpadi

FF2Believe it or not I have been through dozens of watering cans over the years, mostly because I can never find one that feels right. I am given up on the feel and going for the look with this Dachshund watering can I found from Parpadi.

About the Dachshund Watering Can from Parpadi: “Adorable Dachshund watering can with working eyes! The kids will love to use this and you will love the help! Can hold approximately 0.5 gallons of water.”

FF: The Peridot Gnome from Chive

FF3aOK, so my new little house on the prairie in Kansas is green. You will no doubt be hearing and seeing a lot about this new house in the coming weeks. But let’s just say the “Peridot” garden gnome from Chive, which also comes in many other designer colors, is a perfect match for the place. Green… It’s GREEN!

About the Peridot Gnome from Chive: “We were really tired of seeing the design injustice that has been inflicted on the poor gnome of late, aka biker gnomes, so we designed a modern, sleek, sexy, colorful friend that everyone wants to hang out with.”
