Weekly Spotlight: Shop Our Holiday Cover (4)

Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

There’s still plenty of time to shop our Holiday catalog before the end of the year, and to get free shipping on select seasonal home accents. The items on our current (and last!) Holiday catalog cover ship for free, so we’re putting them in the spotlight this week.

Weekly Spotlight: Shop Our Holiday Cover (4) | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

  • If you are a collector of all things Williraye Studio™, you may recognize the sculptures on our cover. From left to right: Sleepytime Santa, Simple Joys and Night Time Friends. The latter doubles as a night light (or accent light) during the Christmas season, and all three bring seasonal whimsy to mantels, tables and displays.
  • Our Lighted Pinecone and Berry Mini Tree is unique because of the authentic pinecones used on its boughs. The size is perfect for an accent table or a bedroom, and the burlap wrapped bottom adds to its rustic appeal. Below each of these home accents is the new Buffalo Check Mini Tree Skirt, which could also double as a small table topper.

Browse all of our seasonal items here, and view the entire catalog online here (or request one to be sent by mail). Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop!

Weekly Spotlight: Thanksgiving Hostess Gift Ideas

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

Wine Bottle Sacks

Hosting Thanksgiving dinner can be joyful and fun, but we all know the responsibilty and attention to detail required to make the celebration a hit. If you aren’t hosting this year and traveling to the home of a friend or family member, consider these gift ideas and give thanks to your hostess.

Two gifts in one, a wine bottle sack adds flair and presents the hostess with an extra sweet treat for herself.

A great way to give thanks and show your appreciation is with a primitive sign featuring a message of sincerity. “It’s a Wonderful Life” is inspired by the holiday movie, but is also a charming way to express your attitude towards loved ones, especially a hostess.

It's A Wonderful Life Sign

Seasonal gifts are also perfect for your Thanksgiving hostess; fall home accents complement the warmth and comfort surrounding the holidays. Our Sugar Maple Iridescent Ornament is handmade and crafted out of a real leaf. Because of this, each is unique, making it a one-of-a-kind gift. Its shimmering orange surface glimmers among fall colors and adds cheerfulness throughout the year.

Flowers for the Hostess

Additionally, we recommend a Housewarmer Jar Candle for giving your hostess the gift of cinnamon and pumpkin pie, even when she is not throwing a party.

Finally, a go-to gift for your hostess: a lovely bouquet of flowers. They can be seasonal, her favorite or a completely whimsical arrangement. A decorative vase in her style is a special bonus, and will add an extra layer of thoughtfulness to this gift.

For more gift ideas, check out our gift giving guide, and don’t forget the best hostess gift of all: saying thank you.

Monday Must-Haves: Prepared for Winter

Monday, January 18th, 2016

Snowy Barn DoormatWe hope you’re enjoying our winter catalog, even if you are not enjoying winter, and are finding just what you need to add more beauty to your home. This week, our five must-haves are items you may not know you need until you need them; we’re here to help you prepare!

Our Snowy Barn Doormat is designed by Billy Jacobs, in the style of his New Fallen Snow image. Depending on the wear of your current doormat, or your need for one at the backdoor or maybe even in the garage, this will make a beautiful statement as a replacement or as an addition to your outdoor winter decor. Of course, it will also keep mud, rain and snow from being tracked throughout your home, while keeping a front porch or back patio seasonally decorated.

Eating Like A Pig SculptureWe know collectible-enthusiasts are always looking for ways to add to collections and perhaps use a new item as inspiration to reorganize treasured sculptures. Our new Eating Like a Pig Sculpture is a charming addition to a bookshelf, end table or mantel that boasts cheerful colors and sunny characters crafted by the Williraye Studio™. Display it as a reminder of gardening and greenery throughout the winter, or save as a gift for a loved one on a special occasion.

Blacksmith Candle Snuffer

We are lovers of flameless candles, but we also know that sometimes nothing beats a warm, flickering scented candle on a cozy winter’s night or during a quiet, snowy morning. When you are ready to put it out, however, do it in a way that will preserve the wick of the candle, and therefore the life of the candle. Our hand-forged iron Blacksmith Candle Snuffer will safely extinguish any candle and present itself decoratively as your candle burns. The turned stem is long enough to keep your hand safe, and its textured exterior gives off an antiqued look for added charm on a mantel in a family room or shelf in your kitchen.

Lavender Hand BalmAnother item great to keep on hand in the kitchen, a bathroom or on your bedside table is made for your hands: all-natural Lavender Hand Balm. It’s not a secret that during winter our skin can get dry and need extra moisturizing power, and this hand balm is exactly what you need. Allow the hand mixed lavender and soothing essential oils to be absorbed by your skin, and enjoy the soft scent and smoothness that is brought to your hands. Keep it all to yourself or give as a gift to a friend or loved one this winter or throughout the year.

Cheshire Braided Rugs

Our final must-have for winter is our Cheshire Braided Rug Collection. We love this collection for winter because of its softness, which is unlike any other non-wool braided rug. In addition to how these rugs feel under your feet, the rich colors provide a neutral and traditional look for any room, and the durable fibers can be kept indoors or moved to an outdoor space. Add a little extra warmth to your favorite living rooms inside your home, or create a cozy feeling in an enclosed porch to admire the wintry world outside.
