Janice from New Orleans LA writes:
The heads will be of my three grand daughters: Susan age 8, Layla age 5 and Sally age 16 months. They too all look great together, but boy do they have different personalities. Thanks for taking time for making a special selection. These three pieces will be the beginning of my garden for our rebuild in Bay St. Louis, MS. The girls will love this idea.
Head-Planter Lover's Photo's:
Vu from Riverdale MD...sure created a variety of beautiful female head planters with various unusual plants. She's also named her gals - Princess, Showgirl and Queen of the Forest! How fun!
Pamela from Navarre Fl, created some gorgeous curls for her Gal using Indian Rope Hoya!
Fran from Angleton Tx purchased a female planter for her sister and when winter comes and planting time is over...she decorates her head for Christmas! Love it!
Jebb from East Hampton NY...really created an unusual planting when he used Strawberries in the Male Planter head! What a great idea. His female is also very festive, planted so cheerfully with summer annuals! Jeb also came up with a great idea to fill the
hollow Male Planter instead of planting into a pot: He writes: I finally got the potting soil to stay in the male planter by using that expanding foam in a can then poking some drainage holes in the hardened foam with long nails. Fantastic idea Jebb - Thank-you!
Maria from Cranford NJ...adorns her gorgeous garden with a Male and Female pair decked out with various greenery!

I'd like to introduce the latest headshot of "Gracie" my Garden Goddess. She watches over my garden looking quite spiffy in her summer attire and greets all my garden guests. She is a little head strong and didn't like her latest "do" 'cuz it was cut too short, but she knows all about the Miracle. The morning sun bothers her, but she has several pairs of cool shades to help ease the brightness.
Everybody loves Gracie! I think she is ahead of her time!
I have loved her since I first saw her! Dressing her up was a ton of fun. I will probably do something different seasonally!
(She's so cool! Very Lana Turner like!

Kathy - I've gotten a lot of mileage out of your heads. It's been great fun. The flower on this echiverium has been in bloom the ENTIRE summer, and while the stem has now collapsed from our first frost, it still has flowers. I just refer to her, as "all dressed up and ready to party". The other guy - is called "Waukesha the Indian". Anyway, we love them. And now, I see several of my customers got them too !
Cindy from Charlotte North Carolina writes: (Zelda and Thor)
Zelda loved the idea of her picture being on the website (she's such a diva) but Thor wasn't as excited about it and said it was "girl stuff". She proceded to tell him how manly and authoritative he looked in the picture and he actually bought it! So you may put their picture on your website with our blessings.
Thank-you Cindy...I think they look quite stunning!
How fortunate for this pair to have been given a place in the beautiful garden of Ann and Bill in Tigard, Oregon!
Susan from Talking Rock Ga, writes:
Thanks.....the planter is great! I love this planter because it looks so good from all sides.....as you can see in the attached picture, I have it placed on a platform I formed from an old tree trunk that sits where several of my gardening paths intersect.....so as you walk through my garden, you can see the head planter from various perspectives (and they all look good!) It was hard to find a piece with such a nice sculptural quality and the right scale for this problem spot that looks good from all sides, but I think this worked out perfectly. Thanks for a great product!
Some of our Northern Customers take their planters in for the winter and either adorn them with a Houseplant or decorate them for Christmas!
Just a lovely couple!
Tammy from California writes:
I just wanted to let you know that both heads arrived safe and sound and have acclimated into their new surroundings. Attached is picture of their current look as a 80's hair band. lol
Thank you so much again!

These planters are stunning - Loving them!
And we love what you've done with them Eleanor and what a beautiful home you've provided! Thanks for sharing.
Helen from Harwich, MA ordered a female planter and wanted to lighten up the finish and give it an older appearance -
Hi Kathleen, This is the way I lightened her. I poured some grey acrylic paint on a paper plate and dabbed it on her with a rag and rubbed it in. I also added some patches of moss green to make her look as though moss has begun to grow. I think she looks really good and I am very happy with her. Yesterday we made a drainage hole with a concrete bit. Everything is good..can't wait to get her planted. Thank you - Helen
It is finally warm enough to have some fun planting my ladies head. She is so beautiful. I'm thought you'd enjoy a photo. Helen
Love your blog – and wanted to share my girlfriend with you! One of my most prized possessions (a gift to me from my son) – Originally adorned with faux pansies in her very long hair and currently dressed with vintage jewels around her neck and faux berries in a shorter do – which happens to be donkey tail !!! It’s pure love!! Suzanne
This is "Stella" -

We ordered this planter from you last year. She is so happy living here. I really am enjoying her. Thanks Paula - Fishers, IN
Hi Kathy: Looking forward to receiving my planter. I purchased one from you a while ago and figured that it was time for a new companion for her (she is tired of hanging out with the gargoyle!). Cavell
The creation of Cavells Cranium Harem
Cavell from Tallahassee started out with one Lonely but lovely Lady...and a Gargoyle!
So Cavell ends up with 2 more family members: (A Gargoyle Nanny?) and a pet!
Cavell writes: I finally got the stone heads organized, so here's a picture of the family with their new summer locks and their "dreadful pets"; the poodle looks so maniacal that it makes the gargoyle look loveable! The original gal is in charge of the harem. I don't dare speculate as to what goes on after dark in the garden! Regards, Cavell.
And another addition to Cavells Garden: A Planter named "Mick"
Cavell writes: in honor of Mick Jagger, who has big lips! I love this pot!
Sure looks like there's a lot of fun going on in Cavells garden!

Renee writes: For a while now I've been meaning to send a picture and tell you how much my husband and I love these heads! Our lady friend is really growing her hair out long. Thanks again, Renee - Livermore, CA
Thanks Renee! Very Cute Couple but too bad the guy always looks so grumpy! LOL
I'm so glad to see our Customers are using their heads "all year round"
Hi and Greetings from Colorado Springs. My guy was too handsome to leave out during winter so I brought him inside. He's quite outstanding with his full head of hair, wouldn't you agree? Sandra
I LOL'd at this one when I opened it! For a minute I thought he was a real "Stoner" but seeing he's wearing a 5K run visor he must be more of an athlete! LOVE IT!
Ann from Washington sent me ths stylized photo and wrote - This is Jazzielle, she is the life of the party outdoors during our fabulous Pacific Northwest fair weather months. She has come in for the cooler fall and winter seasons. Here she is dressed in her fall outfit.
Way too cool Ann! Very Cher like...don't you think? haha
Check out these other uses we've come up with for your Head!
And just when you thought you had seen it all...
Oh my! It had to be one of our very creative customers who decided to adorn her Gal with some Lipstick! And why not? It looks great!
Janet from Columbus Grove, OH writes:
I love my head planter. She is the best conversation piece. We named her Toots, added jewelry, sunglasses and a little lipstick.
That is definitely too cute Janet and gives me lots of ideas!
Thanks for sharing.
