HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM From the Summer's Garden

At this time of Thanksgiving we extend our gratitude to our customers and followers for your patronage and support. May you get the bigger half of the wishbone this season!   All of us at From the Summer's Garden want to send a special Thanksgiving wish to Nathan, our former studio assistant, now studying abroad in Italy.  We are thinking of you and grateful for your hard work and enthusiasm.  Here's what the studio looks like right now during PEACE TO YOU:

DISCARDED WATER BOTTLES + PAPER MACHE = BOTTLE ANGELS!

Last year for Marshmallow World we created hypertufa Snofolk.  These were fun little snow people entirely sculpted by hand.  It was a fun process because it was very similar to actually rolling balls  of snow.
 For PEACE TO YOU we've created Bottle Angels, repurposed from discarded water bottles and sculpted with recycled paper mache.  Each one is a bit different because they too are made by hand.

CUSTOM DEMONSTRATIONS FOR GROUPS

The holiday sale event is a great time for your group to enjoy a custom demonstration and an exclusive shopping experience at From the Summer's Garden.  The Prairie Gardener's and the Women of St. Lukes learned how to make a hypertufa box planter and a cast leaf water basin and didn't even get their hands dirty!
From the Summer's Garden has designed a series of Hypertufa kits that simplify the process making it a snap to make your own tufa containers. Available now at PEACE TO YOU.
