Weekly Spotlight: Bees at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

What’s your favorite thing about the summertime? Is it the sunshine? A warm beach? Sitting outside with a good book? How about the pollinators in your yard? Okay, this last one may not be at the top of your list, but we’re focusing this Weekly Spotlight blog post on one pollinator that is vital to the health of our plants and our planet: the bee.

We’ve introduced many new bee-themed home accents to our catalog this summer, and we hope you love them as much as we do (scroll to the bottom for an item that actually caters to the bees themselves).

Artist Tim Campbell created the Bee Skep Print to the left, which features one of the first man-made beehives used to collect honey. In true Tim Campbell folk art style, this elongated wall art is perfect for a country home. Also with plenty of charm is our returning Bees Please Pitcher, which is ideal for flower arrangements and storing miscellaneous items, like utensils in the kitchen.

Next up is another rendition of a bee skep, this time on a hooked wool pillow. Artist Dianna Swartz created this design, which coordinates with our Beehive Doormat.

Finally, our Cedar Bee House. This unique outdoor home accent is specifically designed to attract bees to your flowering garden and yard. It’s constructed from rot-resistant cedar, and can be situated on a stump or hung up on a post. You can get all the information about how to display it here.

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.

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.
