Decorating with Crows

There is definitely something to crow about at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop! Our fun selection of crow themed decor items will enliven your country home for the upcoming fall season.  These  intriguing black birds are a common sight across all of America. You might find them perched on fences or pestering farmers for their corn crops. Immortalized in poems, featured in paintings and songs, the crow is a fascinating avian addition to our landscapes.

Did you know that the crow is now one of the world’s most intelligent animals? They are able to comprehend the need and use for tools. Like us humans, this remarkable bird can solve problems with the use of tool making. For example, in a 2002 study, researches witnessed a crow bending a piece of wire to assist himself in making a hook, in order to grab a bucket of  food! Due to this fascinating behavior, some scientists believe it puts the crow’s intelligence level above that of the chimpanzee. Although being known throughout our history as filthy, scavenging birds who “squawk,”  there really is a lot more to the crow. Let Sturbridge show you with some of our best crows.

The warm scent of hot buttered maple, is found in our Crow Candle that makes your home smell cozy and warm. It’s generous size provides a long burn time, so you can enjoy a long-lasting tribute to the crow! Next we have our Our Family Tree Plaque, that showcases folk art at its best. The plaque would look lovely representing your family on any wall in your home. Other wall decor items you might like are the Old Crow Inn Clock and the Crow Bar Print. The clock, (featured above) is made with a distressed wood appearance, offering a vintage spin on crow themed decor. Hang in an entryway or kitchen to highlight its unique charm. The fun and clever Crow Bar Print, by artist Will Bulas, shows us a group of high flying friends cackling and sharing stories over a drink at the bar; definitely suitable for the home bar!

Our captivating Crow Candle Holder is a little bit folk art and a little bit country. The finely detailed, wooden crow provides a primitive accent to any tabletop or shelf. Perfect with our Forever Taper Candles, sold separately. If its the floor your looking to dress up, consider the Crow Star Jute Rug. Made of eco-friendly biodegradable jute, our Crow Star Jute Rug is both good for the environment and your home! Its striking design of a crow adds charm and distinction. Place it by the front door, near the sofa, or by the kitchen sink to really get to know your crow. Happy Decorating!
