Gurgle Pots to Make You Giggle

If you haven't seen our Gurgle Pots yet - you are really missing something - everyone we show them to is amazed by the sound they make. Based on a simple design, when water is poured from the pitcher, the air creates a "gurgling" sound inside the tail. You just have the see it (or hear it) to believe it - come in before 'these fish get away." Perfect for the person that has everything! $39.99 each.

Tree of Life

This season, the Tree of Life ornaments from Kitras Art Glass has been one of our best selling items. Each one is unique and has a special meaning  - the one shown is titled Strength and each one comes with a story tag which details its meaning. In a beautiful gift box, these ornanments come in two sizes - the 2" ornament retails for $19.99 and the 6" ornament retails for $39.99. A perfect gift that can be enjoyed long after the holidays are over. We have limited quantities - so you better hurry in for the best selection.

Welcome to the Downing Hill blog and allow us to introduce ourself – we recently opened a garden studio on Greenville Ave. in Dallas, Texas. The purpose of these postings is to share with you our observations of new merchandise in the shop – and sometimes we'll post notes about what is going on in our garden – or the neighborhood, for that matter.

We have been open for just over a week and already we have met some fine folks dropping in to say hello and pick up a few Christmas gifts. In just a short time, we can tell the neighborhood has welcomed us with open arms.

Our goal at Downing Hill is to create a place where our customers can come in for inspiration and find new ideas for their gardens. So, check back with us from time to time to see what is going on our garden studio and we look forward to any comments you would like to share with us, too.
