While you bustle during the day and drift off to dreamland at night, garden angels look over your buds and blossoms. And by angels we mean spiders: they're the ultimate yard advocate, banishing outdoor pests like flies, beetles, and aphids so flora can bloom freely. Inspired by these eight-legged overseers, Catherine Murphy handcrafted this springing spider stake. Its patina copper finish reflects light in warm rays, and delicate lines match the complex beauty of its muse. Sink the critter in or near a bed of flowers, fruits, or veggies as a whimsical good luck charm, and watch as it springs and sways in the wind. Handmade in Asheville, North Carolina.
