Emoticon-Inspired Rock Decorations

The Katers Acres 'CITRUS' Collection is Zesty & Fun

— June 28, 2012 — Art & Design
These adorable pet rocks are from the Katers Acres collection and are meant to add some colorful life to your garden. Although the pieces appear to look like rocks, they are actually made out of polymer clay. The Summer 2012 CITRUS series features each rock as a different citrus fruit, which includes grapefruit, lime, orange and lemon -- such a cute concept and design that is sure to spice up your plant pots.

Traditionally, many people like to put the classic garden gnomes as decor for their exterior; however, this collection offers a modern-day take on gardening. It is full of animated characters, some in the form of fruits, animals and other original designs.

This extensive line also has ornaments, buttons and even lip balm containers. The Katers Acres collection is a great way to add some life to your garden.
