Monday Must-Haves: Freshly Picked Decor

Monday, May 14th, 2018

Summer is here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, and to kick off a new season of blog posts today we’re featuring five must-have home accents from our Summer 2018 catalog (in the mail this week!).

Blue Hydrangea Solar Blossom Stake

The newest addition to our Solar Blossom collection, this beautiful outdoor home accent is a show stopper. Plus, the LED light is solar powered so you can just stake it into your front yard or a garden and let it do its thing.

We’re glad you’re loving the half exposed grapevine base look of some of our wreaths, so for the summer we’ve added an Americana inspired wreath for displaying on a door or wall.

Bird and Wildflowers Pillow

We love the bright colors of this small accent pillow, which will add charm to your home throughout the rest of spring and into the summer time. They synthetic down fill also makes this one of the most coziest pillows to rest upon.

Before focusing future blog posts on this new season, we are featuring five must-have home accents that will complement your winter decor next year. They all happen to be in our clearance section, so shop quickly to take advantage of their special pricing.

These home accents are beautiful when displayed around the holidays, but their flocked details make them perfect for decorating with all winter long. The trees are ideal in centerpieces and tabletop arrangements, offering greenery to collectibles and similarly rustic decor. The red berries offer a rich color in any flower arrangement or vase, and make any room sparkle with winter charm.

All three pieces of wall art are made here in the USA, and each offer something different for your home. The first makes a perfect shelf sitter, on a mantel, table or bookcase, and like the home accents above, works well with both holiday and winter accessories.

At Twilight is done by artist Loren Blackburn, and transports you to a snowy street of day’s past, giving any room nostalgic warmth. Finally, the snowman and red bird advertising snowballs for sale creates a fun look during the winter season, and is a piece of rustic wall art that holds timeless charm.

Weekly Spotlight: Pi[e] Day

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

Today’s date, 3.14, also happens to be the first three digits of the mathematical constant called Pi. Since we aren’t mathematicians here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, we’re celebrating this day by spotlighting five tools and home accents related to Pi[with an e]. Take a look below.

Whimsical Stand Mixer Designed Aprons

We agree with artist Pat Hutter that Pie Fixes Everything, even the hunger of a little Huckleberry Pug, captured by photographer Ron Schmidt. The right seasonings and spices in any pie are most accurately added when using Measuring Spoons and tools, and if you decide to make your own crust, a Rolling Pin is a must-have. If you’re making a pie that requires mixing or ingredient combining in an electric mixer, our Stand Mixer Aprons will keep the ingredients off your clothes.
