Celebrate Hearts with SYW

In honor of love, Sturbridge Yankee Workshop has a wonderful array of hearts for your country home decor! Decorating with hearts is a perfect way to transition out of your holiday decor into decor that works for everyday. Then before you know it, you’ll be ready in time for Valentine’s Day! Below you will find heart themed items we offer for your wall, table top and floor.

To start, for your walls we have our Heart Wreath, featured here on the left. The natural cut twig base holds a mix of dried cream colored sinuata, lacey fern, pink sudan grass and ruby larkspur. A silk burgundy rose sits atop the loop of grass and pink organdy ribbon. Another beautiful option when it comes to wall decor, is our Eight Hearts Medallion. A special scrolled design adds a lovely touch to your wall; perhaps for a dramatic look over a fireplace, a suitable anniversary or wedding gift, or charming in a country bedroom. Featuring black metal with red undertones, it is easily hung by a keyhole hanger; hardware included.

A cute idea to display as a lovely heart accent anywhere in your home is our Heart Button Hanger; coming as a set of two hanging hearts. A whimsical array of patchwork prints in varying shades of red, pink, and cream adds country charm to a door or cupboard knob and the buttons in various shades of milky white and cream look like they came from Grandma’s sewing drawer. The key dangling from the second heart adds a vintage touch; designed by Sonja Sandell.

Here we have our Stained Glass Double Heart featuring two hearts intertwined to catch the light. Handmade in New England, this double heart sun catcher has finely soldered scalloped edges. A sweet gift for a loved one, to use as a thoughtful gift tag, or to hang in your country home. Hanging purple ribbon included. Or you may consider a singular stained heart option in our Small Stained Glass Heart or Large Stained Glass Heart.

New for the Winter 2012 catalog, we have a few more heart options you might consider. The Decorative Hanging Metal Heart Ornament and 2-Layer Hanging Heart Ornament will coordinate with our original Heart on a Wire. The fun thing about this collection now, is that because these hearts are crafted of high quality metal here in Maine, they also double as unique magnet boards. Our new Set of 3 Black Heart Magnets are fun for Valentine’s Day décor but perfect any time of year you want to create a showing of “true love” on your refrigerator or other magnetic surface.

If you’re looking for an easy way to decorate with hearts in a cohesive manner, you may like our Braided Heart Collection. On the left our pretty Braided Heart Placemats; will highlight a kitchen filled with love and family. Coordinating Braided Heart Trivets are perfect to use as coasters or for smaller items on the table. Last, but certainly not least our Heart Rug rounds out the look just right. The trivets and placemats are made of a druable cotton blend and our rug, an eco-friendly 100% jute fiber material. Your choice in any item featured here in Olive (shown), Black, Burgundy or Wheat; Red and Brown additional colors for the rug.

For a Valentine’s Day, teacher appreciation or hostess gift, you will certainly love another new item for Winter 2012: our Tin Heart Candle. Hand poured soy wax candles like this one, have a cleaner and longer burning ability. Displaying a folk art label of a bird fishing for a heart under a weeping willow tree. The scent is a bold spicy cinnamon that will remind you of fresh desserts in the kitchen. Additional details include, a red chenille ribbon tied around the top of the candle and the shrunken white heart detail within the base of the red wax for a unique look. The tin container can be repurposed after the 110 hours of burn time are complete. This candle is proudly made in the USA.
