Haitian folk-art Tree of Life If you could tear your eyes off the adorable Labrador in "Marley & Me," you might notice a fanciful wall hanging in the residences of John Grogan, author of the bestselling book about one man's best friend. This Tree of Life plaque is an ancient symbol of heaven and earth, here rendered by artisans in Haiti who hammer and chisel recycled metal from oil drums into decorative arbors with five birds. The piece is nearly 3 feet in diameter and sells for $324 at; (800) 233-6011. -- David A. Keepsxx
