Cardinal Serenade Bowl
In a flash of vivid red, cardinals often come and go before we even catch a glimpse. But this hand-blown glass art bowl lands their rouge beauty in your home for all to behold. Showcasing the work of award-winning artist James Hautman, this exquisite decorative vessel makes a magnificent statement on its own but also looks great with flowers, potpourri and even candies, as it’s completely food safe.
Love Birds Personalized Collector Plate
What’s a better symbol of the love you share than a couple of cuddling love birds posed beak-to-beak?

Plus, to make it even more personal, the names of you and your sweetheart are “carved” into the cherry tree featured in the artwork.
Golden Majesty Eagle Lamp
Strong. Majestic. Free. A soaring eagle in flight can evoke many things. Among them a feeling of oneness with nature and a pride of country. This dramatic lamp elicits those feelings with just the flip of a switch, bringing the renowned artwork of Ted Blaylock to life on a torchiere-style crystalline shade that “bursts” from the outstretched wings of a fully sculpted eagle.
Glory of Flight Floor Lamp
The commanding masters of the sky can be experienced in all their glory, from the top to the bottom of this breathtaking floor lamp standing 5 feet tall. Acclaimed artist Ted Blaylock’s stunning bald eagle imagery is showcased in full color on all 4 sides of the fabric shade. You can even control the lamp conveniently with its hands-free floor switch. Arrives with free energy efficient light bulbs too!
Lena Liu Precious Treasure Music Box
Even more elusive than the cardinal is the mysterious hummingbird. Through the talent of award-winning artist Lena Liu, this jewel of nature makes a beautiful on this graceful Heirloom Porcelain® music box. A hand-painted sculptural hummingbird crowns the top, appearing again in Ms. Liu’s lavish floral art across the front. And when you hear the uplifting melody of “On the Wings of Love” it’s sure to make your heart soar.

This welcome sign captures an entire flock of these tuneful birds from the art of the acclaimed Hautman Brothers, expressed on stone-like plaques. One of the plaques is even graced with your family’s name to add a personal touch all year ’round.
Pride of America Sculpture
The American bald eagle is one of the most patriotic birds (and symbols) in our country. This striking sculpture showcases a fully dimensional bronzed eagle against an unfurling American flag. Soaring above a handsome base that pays homage to our brave veterans, the presentation becomes even more dramatic with the flick of a switch as 4 LED lights in the base shine upward to highlight the eagle and flag.
