My Christmas wish list


I usually don’t pick up photos from other blogs & shopping websites and post them here. But I do troll many design blogs & sites always looking for cool & new products to satisfy my visceral visual need for well-designed unique products. Reading garden blogs isn’t enough to feed my design habit. No offense to you garden bloggers.

Detail of the ginkgo mobile.

Here’s a few images I’ve collected of things I want. Chief among them is this ginkgo biloba mobile. I’ve got an immense, two-story tall space in my stairwell that begs for this mobile every day. The mobile can be found here for the reasonable price of $228. But if you’re in the mobile market, you might want to check out this interior designer’s blog, A Schematic Life.

I found this tiny Polaroid-looking planter/hanging light combo to be exactly something I want but don’t need. I’ll need about 20. It can be found here. Unfortunately, here is in Korea.

We’ve been searching for just the right light to go over our round table in our turret (image right). This comes close. The glass & brass fake candle-looking chandelier that’s been there since we moved in bothers me every time I look at it. I think I could like looking at this. It’d be like moving the moon into the room. I think I could almost make this from a large lampshade and black & white transparency film.

And I don’t have a large window to add any decals to, but if I did. I’d want something like this on the right. It’s actually an architect’s custom window stencil for the house found on this blog.

And wouldn’t this be cool? A wooden turned pedestal with your profile? My wife would probably never in a million years have something like this made (she of a unique nose). But isn’t it awesome? All it takes is a photo of your profile & $150.

Being a graphic designer, and attracted to typographic solutions and unique type forms, I really want this door mat. Only $30. Can be found here.

In an effort to attract only the coolest of birds to my property, I’d take any of these Joe Papendick designed birdhouses and any of his bird feeders.

And this, the selfish Sunny Day Bench for one, is the ultimate piece of furniture for my antisocial side. No price listed. That means something.

And what gardener wouldn’t want these salad servers? $30 bucks.

I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business. Look me up at #jcharlier.

  4. GardenJoy4Me,If I can figure out where I got the image from, I want to see how much it costs first. I have a big list of things I've seen and said, “I could make that!” and never do. If there's a two for one sale on 'em, I'll get one for you.
