Weekly Spotlight: Spring 2019 Birds

Wednesday, March 13th, 2019

Something we always look forward to is the addition of new bird decor to our catalog – especially the spring edition. So today we’re shining the spotlight on five new avian inspired home accents from our Spring 2019 selection.

Tealight Holders

Bird Nest Tealight Holder | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

We’ve added two new tealight holders, and while each feature a bird, both bring a little something different to the table. Reminiscent of vintage birdcages, the Metal Birdcage Tealight Holder has a bird sitting atop a very rustic birdcage with a candle holder inside, while the Bird Nest Tealight Holder offers a sculptural look with fresh color and vintage appeal.

The Iron Bird Bottle Opener is a cute spring accessory, as well as a convenient tool for parties and dinner with friends. It’s comfortable to hold while you open bottles, and will sit flat when not in use.

Farmhouse Roosters

Although a specific type of bird, the rooster is a favorite in farmhouse kitchens and living spaces. Our Metal Rooster Magnet Board is both functional and decorative (magnets included), and the same goes for the Punched Tin Rooster Night Light. Add some rustic charm to your home while keeping your decor practical.

Musical Cat Potholder

This practical home accent features a soft color palette and a lovely quote from Nobel Prize Laureate and musician Albert Schweitzer:
“There are two means of refuge
From the miseries of life:
Music and cats.”
