Gift Wrap for $4.95

Original artwork by Michael Macone, this ceramic Life Is Measured Garden Sign will serve as a heartfelt reminder to cherish times spent with close family and friends. The cheerful, painted wall plaque includes a crimson nylon cord for hanging and reads in whimsical script, "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." Etched in clay for a dimensional feel, the wall hanging sign features an illustration of a yellow star ornament hanging from a tree standing on a green hill. This charming indoor accent can be hung in an entryway, kitchen, office, bathroom or guest bedroom. Or, due to the plaque's weather durable nature, hang this memorable message on a porch, deck, garden wall or near a patio. Made in the USA.

If you've ever been blessed with the opportunity to see a Pileated Woodpecker in person, and were thrilled by their gargantuan size, then this sculpture is for you. Mine is mounted on a pillar post which holds up the overhang on my deck alongside hanging flower baskets and bird feeders, where I spend lots of time sitting outside enjoying nature and I SO enjoy watching the gentle swaying of this woodpecker as the light breezes cause it to make a "pecking" motion. The legs of the bird are separate from the body and are permanently attached by screws through the feet and the top part of the legs go inside the belly of the woodpecker and are cleverly balanced on a plate inside which allows the bird freedom of movement as the wind blows it. It is very relaxing to watch and lifelike. You can always tuck the body further onto the legs during strong storms to prevent damage from fear of it falling or "pecking" too hard if desired. My only negative about the product was lack of instructions on how to place the body onto the legs. By looking at the two pieces separately, one would NEVER expect it to go together and work as it does. There are two small indentations inside the bird on a horizontal plate that are supported by the rounded ends of the bird legs which allows the bird freedom of movement. It would have been nice to have something which tells the customer that is how you put it together when hanging. But eventually, I figured it out and love this item.
