Combining two of the best worlds in country home furnishings – indoor/outdoor and braided – the Perry Accent Mat is made to function as a durable doormat while offering the traditional charm of a braided rug. Its slim construction allows most entryway doors to glide right over the top, preventing the rug from bunching or catching on your door. The polypropylene fibers and rubber backing are easy to clean and won’t slip on most surfaces.

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.
