Here at the BSP we are avid supporters of creativity, of nature, of the marriage of the two. Our love of one of a kind, handcrafted goods runs deep and we actively seek out the best of the best to share with you. I’ll be honest: my attention lately has been focused on bringing the best of the outdoors in and accenting the home with beautiful art. I’m sure I’m not alone in this.

Jenny Wong-Stanley is an artist that truly brings art to life. Art of Plant’s tagline is: “Merging science and art to create living, changing, plant art.” There is no better way to describe the inimitable work of Wong-Stanley. (Believe me, I tried.) From bent wood to kokedamas, every piece is a unique way to bring the outside inside to positively influence. Art of Plants is there to supply with you with exactly the beauty you need.

Art of Plants is giving away one Hand Bent wood piece with Air Plant, “The Orange Jumper”, to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than Tuesday, May 20th.
Please visit Art of Plants and tell us: What do you surround yourself with to remind you of the beauty in life?
Start checking the winner’s box on Tuesday, May 27th, to see if you’ve won.

    First off, I absolutely LOVE your designs and priced so well too !
    The beauty in my life is my grandkids and am fortunate that they live in a beach community near San Diego.  My best times are with the 3 munchkins (5,6 and 10) walking the beach at sunset and them slowly edging their way to the water, feet first, then shorts then ending up in the water fully clothed 🙂 why not ?? they are kids and it’s better than them sitting inside on their mobile devices playing games

    I surround myself with love from family and friends to remind myself there’s beauty in the world. I make sure to stay in touch with old friends and to make an effort to make new friends. I cherish time with my husband, sisters and parents. If you feel like you’re life is full of love, it’s easy to see beauty everywhere.

    Books, it is a family love for many generations, my great grandfather used to walk to the local library and fill a canvas bag with books each week. He never had a chance to travel but always Said you could travel the world through books. My husband’s family are also bibliophiles and one of my favorite photos is of my exhausted husband reading Go Dog Go to our new born daughter the day we brought her home from the hospital.As a librarian one of my greatest joys was finding just the right book for a reluctant reader if that isn’t beauty that brings joy I don’t know what is 🙂

    Family photos and weird “souvenirs” from our travels. Things that have hidden meaning, that remind you of a special place or time. Things handmade, treasured and weathered. Things that look like junk, but you see the beauty in them. Irreplaceable momentos of life.

    I surround myself with plants.  I have moved so much but I always have some sort of plants in my house.  Love them because they are beautiful and good for the earth.

    Colours. Not only are they beautiful, but the reason we see them astounds me. Our eyes and light and nature and how they all work together is just so marvelous and unlikely that you can’t help but feel like a miracle. It also makes me wonder what other colours are out there that we cannot see; does everyone see the same thing I do? Colours make me feel things – red is warm, blue is refreshing, purple is profound – but they also make me think things.

    Dog hair.  I mean, yeah, I’m involuntarily surrounded by it, but if having a dog isn’t a reminder of what’s beautiful in life, then I don’t know what is.

    Old trees. When we purchased our home, the listing agent suggested we remove the older trees as they’re quite large and some appear to be dead. I hate to admit it, but the reason why we purchased the house was because of the terraced backyard with it’s old trees, stone fire place, and the brook running behind the property. Those old trees still have life in them, their branches still bloom every spring, and the squirrels and other backyard animals enjoy them still. Just because they’re old and dusty looking doesn’t mean there isn’t life in and around them.

    I have really tried to to intentionally surround myself and our household with items that are about the beauty of life–it’s been a hard couple of years! With a laugh, I have to honestly tell you that there is an inordinate number of ROCKS inside our house!!  I wonder if that’s symbolic! lol But the reason for them is that they have all been brought inside by each of us (myself, my husband, our two teenage sons) because they are interesting and beautiful, and the finder wanted to share them.  Those are solidly tangible objects that represents what is truly beautiful in life.  The little bookshelf in the master bedroom, the kitchen windowsill, the table by the front door is absolutely covered, in my jewelry box, on the fireplace mantel, in both boys’ bedrooms…we have jars of agates that are just as precious as our paintings!

    We recently moved to the desert and the view is a bit bleak and depressing, all dead browns and yellows, so having the green of plants in the house feels absolutely vital and life giving. Between plants and the laughter and kiss attacks of my three wild boys, I’m constantly not only reminded but surrounded and enveloped in beauty.

    Repurposed antiques.  I am endless fascinated by old things: especially made of wood or metal or glass.  Everything used to be SO much sturdier!  I’m fascinated by these lovely things that were really meant to last.  I want them in my house – to give a sense of strength and purpose and solidity.  So!  I find these things and I use them for whatever makes sense.  I have a beautiful old mid-centry hanging scale that I use as a fruit basket, for example.   My family has gotten to the point where they stop buying me new things, they know how much I love old things.

    I try to surround myself with happy. Colors, tastes, sights and sounds. I find the more positive I am, the more readily I see the beauty that surrounds me.

    Living things. It is such an ancient saying that plants make for a happier life, but I don’t find it any less accurate in 2014.

    What exquisitely beautiful designs! I’m bookmarking this for the future and now know what to suggest to my husband when my next birthday comes around (why is it so long from now?).

    Plants and rocks/crystals…..we have a bunch of both and I love all of them! I have a few air plants that sit on a tabletop zen garden

    I sing a lot, and there is always someone singing in my house, so that reminds me how great life is

    It’s so simple, but I love natural light flooding my home. I make an effort to throw open the window treatments every morning so I can appreciate the nature outside my house, give the cats some patches of sunshine to sleep in and watch the light wash over the life I’ve built in the home I love.
