Weekly Spotlight: Magnetic Garden Stake & Signs

Wednesday, June 19th, 2019

Flower Pickin' Garden Stake & Sign | Spring 2019 | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopToday we’re shining the spotlight on our Magnetic Garden Stake and the signs made exclusively for it.

We introduced the Magnetic Garden Stake in Spring 2019, and paired it with the Flower Pickin’ Magnetic Sign (designed by artist Susan Winget). The Sign fits perfectly on the double sided magnetic placard of the Stake, lending bright and seasonal charm to your front yard, garden or walkway. Start your collection with this pair, or purchase the Stake on its own and select one (or all) of the three additional Signs.

The three additional Signs can be found in our Summer 2019 catalog, and this time you will find space for adding your address. Both the Patriotic Mailbox Address Sign and Potted Geraniums Address Sign feature designs by artist Susan Winget, while artist Annie LaPointe designed the Geranium Bloom Address Sign.

Each of these four Signs is UV printed for durability and vivid, long lasting color. The magnetic placard on the Stake can be easily unhooked, adapting it for a garden flag if you prefer. In addition, the hand-welded wrought iron and powder coat will prolong the life of this durable outdoor home accent.

Thursday’s Theme: The Garden Shed of Our Dreams (a wishlist)

Thursday, April 4th, 2019

In March we talked about the components of our dream garden – a water feature, both flowers and vegetables, among other things – so it only seems right to create a wishlist for our dream garden shed.

Exterior

First thing’s first – the outside. A storm door or screen door would be great on our dream garden shed, but we can’t resist the charm of a Dutch door. Maybe the storm door can go in the front and then the Dutch door could lead out to our well designed and flourishing dream garden

We also like the half-shed, half-greenhouse look (and function!) – so that’s exactly what ours would be like, with the addition of an outdoor space to prepare pots for planting.

Interior

Typically cabinetry, counter tops, flooring and paint would not be priorities in our everyday garden shed. But remember, this is the shed of our dreams so those things are just as important as the garden tools and accessories. Wood is the perfect counter top material for our dream shed, and the washed out brick floor offers a complete look that is still rustic. The farmhouse sink is also a dream necessity, making it easy to fill watering cans and give potted plants a good drenching if they need it. A quick coat of green paint on the walls, shelves and drawers creates a natural yet cheerful atmosphere.

And while we do love the cozy galley style of the above shed, we’d maybe put in a larger addition to one end of our dream shed so we could have a rustic wood table for planting projects.
