With holiday decorations hopefully stowed away, it’s time to fill the gloominess until the next big holiday, Easter, with some fun garden decoration.
These garden statues sold by Angelic Creations of Naperville come in all sizes, shapes and designs — from funny to contemporary to fantastic to religious, these guys will spruce up your yard.
Best of all? They are weather resistant even during winter.
“I’ve had some of mine for decades,” promises Angelic Creations owner Angel Whitt. She sells them from the yard of Angelic Doll House and Hospital, 816 N. Washington St.
“They are made of a special blend with fibers and stones,” says Whitt of the yard statues produced locally. “We like to support local business. And they are great quality.”
Whitt started out with a few collected pieces for her personal enjoyment. When asked repeatedly if the sculptures were for sale, she finally gave it a shot.
“So I ordered a bunch, and they were sold over just one weekend,” she says.
That was 15 years ago. Now the Doll Hospital’s yard is adorned with dragons, angels, dogs of all breeds, welcome signs, among others. Trinkets to full size, from $5 to about $400, Angelic Creations has it all.
“We get people who like to create a sanctuary in their yard in remembrance of a loved one,” Whitt says. But the Outdoor Garden Statuary, as Whitt likes to call them, also make great birthday gifts.
“We all decorate our houses, but we often neglect the outside,” Whitt adds.
Whitt gladly consults customers on their yard space and needs.
Angelic Creations is open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday, but Whitt is happy to schedule appointments outside business hours. Call Ric Whitt at 630-740-8184.
