Weekly Spotlight: What We’re Thankful For

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Family & Friends

Gathering with friends and family is not just something we are thankful for during the holidays, but are thankful for every opportunity to show those close to us how important they are.

Friends Gather Here Sign

Pets (who are really part of the family)

We are definitely thankful for our pets – from horses to cats and dogs to the smallest goldfish.

Home-Cooked Meals

There’s nothing like a home-cooked meal to fill our homes with warm aromas and feelings of love that go into  the most thoughtful breakfasts, heartiest dinners and sweetest desserts (especially around the holidays when we can share with friends and family).

This Is My Happy Place Pillow

The Simple Things

These include laughter, politeness, conversation and all other of life’s simple things. They bring us down to earth and give us a little relief when other things are a little chaotic.

You!

And of course, we are thankful for all of you who welcome us into your homes and are gracious with words of endearment as well as suggestions on how we can serve you better. Thank you!

What are five things you are most thankful for? Express them here or around the dinner
table this Thursday in front of those you love most. Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Thursday’s Theme: Pet Decor

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

This week has been a special Pet Appreciation Week, although we know the appreciation you have for your pets extends to much longer than a week. We share our lives with our pets, as well as our homes, so we couldn’t think of a better topic for this week’s Décor article than pet décor! From accessories and necessities for your pets, to pet themed décor for your enjoyment, there are many ways for you to show appreciation towards your pet in addition to the love you give them.

For Your Pet

Spoiling our pets is almost second nature, whether it is with a variety of squeaky toys or delicious treats. If you’d like to replace that cardboard treat box on your counter with something that complements your kitchen or entryway décor, you have many options. You could try something simple, like a large Mason jar with a ribbon and a handmade nametag, or you can find a stylish tin to store those dog or cat treats inside. If you’re feeling crafty, you could even craft your own treat holder to place by a back door, complete with a leash hook!

Dog Treat TinFor those of you with feline companions, cat nip may be on your cat’s necessity list. There are many stylish cat nip options available, but it’s also relatively easy to do-it-yourself. Sew Licious Home Décor has a great tutorial on crafting cat nip out of fabric and string that you can use time and time again to please your pet.

For Your Home

There are countless décor items you can incorporate into your home that are pet themed, like rugs, sculptures and figurines, picture frames, pillows, and so much more. However, if you are looking to get a little more detail oriented and personal with your pet décor, you may consider screen-printing a picture of your furry loved one onto a decorative pillow or throw.

Kitty Face Pillow

For ideas on how to effectively design your own screen-printed pillow, we found a fun how-to on the Yellow Brick Home blog, complete with cute pet reactions to seeing the images on home accents. This is a great way to showcase any larger, non-house pets you may have, like horses or other farm animals. You’ll be able to show your love for them inside your home, during the times you can’t be outside with them.

We’d love to see how you’ve decorated in honor of your furry family members, and how you show your appreciation for them. Happy decorating!
