These southwestern desert critters will brighten up any house, patio, tree or yard with their realistic designs. The colors of these southwestern desert animals range from right out of nature to the whimsical from the owners' imagination. Choose from 6" long horney toads, frogs, and a variety of sizes of geckos and lizards. We actually see these desert creatures around where we live in Truth or Consequences, NM! Each and every one is slightly different, as the dye packets used to color them all show an individual one-of-a-kind effect. Except for the purple long skinny lizard, we only have ONE of each color item in stock, so order now! Mix'n'match red small and large geckos and lizards, or purple ones, or green ones to make a nice grouping.
We'll send a card with each item with this info: "House of Chimes is a husband and wife-owned business with just a couple of part-time employees, located in the tiny town of Organ, New Mexico outside of Las Cruces. They have been in business for over 30 years and wholesale only. We are the ONLY place to find their New Mexico-made goods online! Each item is individually hand-poured, fired and decaled (if product has a decal) right on site. Truly a small-craft American business. Every single item is truly Made in USA!"
House of Chimes ceramics have been tested in the owners' own back yard with up to 70 mile per hour winds, snow, rain and just about any other weather condition tested you can think of. You can put House of Chimes Wind merchandise in your dishwasher to clean them or just soap and water in the sink. And make sure they don't bump against any other items in the dishwasher to avoid any possibility of chips.
They can be hung indoors or out for a whimsical touch to any area. All have at least one hole on the back for hanging and the larger items (e.g. lizards) have two or more holes so you can both anchor them better and place them at any angle you like. We consider them eco-friendly because they are locally crafted and not shipped from halfway around the world. These make great gifts for the person who appreciates American-made southwestern decor.
