Quick Tip: Seasonal Soft Sculptures

Soft sculptures can make a big seasonal statement in a small amount of space. Prop on a staircase, a rustic bench, a kitchen counter or chair for festive style that doesn’t overwhelm. Available for Halloween, harvest, Thanksgiving, Christmas and other occasions, you can decorate with these collectibles throughout the year!

Top Five Monday Must-Haves: 4th of July

Monday, June 29th, 2015

We will be celebrating the 4th of July all week right here on our blog, and we hope you can gain some inspiration for your Independence Day weekend from our ideas. To start off, we are concluding our summer catalog Must-Have lists with one that is patriotic themed so you can celebrate all summer or all year long. We hope you enjoy the following home accents, and enjoy a week filled with red, white, and blue!

July Festival Wreath (set of 2) shown with Stars Ribbon

Uncle Sam Sculpture

American Accessories

We’ll start off with an accessory that can be used on a wall, in a bookshelf, or around a pillar candle for a truly festive display of patriotism. The combination of sparkly red, white, and blue berries with natural-looking green leaves gives you a simple yet fun décor option when decorating for the 4th. Did we mention you get two sizes? And, if you want to add a little extra flair to the wreaths, our Stars Ribbon is the perfect complement.

American Characters

Some of our favorite décor pieces include sculptures and festive figures. The Uncle Sam Sculpture is on the Must-Have list because Williraye Studio™ embodied a couple of American elements into this one sculpture: Uncle Sam, a freshly baked pie, American flags, and a festive girl with her feline companions.

Little Miss Liberty Patriotic Soft SculptureIf soft sculptures are more your taste, artist Joe Spencer© has created charming patriotic soft sculptures for your 4th of July and Americana decorating. Little Miss Liberty adds feminine and patriotic elements to your home, and can be used as a perfectly individual piece or can be paired with her Samuel Liberty companion.

Spirited Décor

America Embroidered Pillow

The distressed wood panels of our Liberty Sign and the antiqued black font remind us of our nation’s primitive past, and of the patriotic spirit of the red, white, and blue. Additionally, this sign is made here in the U.S., so you can be proud of the quality and to display it in your home.

Finally, our last patriotic Must-Have is the America Embroidered Pillow. This accent is great for showing your American spirit in a classic, primitive way. The colors are complementary enough to leave this pillow on a sofa or bench all year long, while the gold banner, American flag, and blue piping on the edges create a charming 4th of July accent for your home.

Harvest Collectible Scultptures from SYW

Friday, October 5th, 2012

At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop there are many ways to decorate your home for the harvest season. We have everything from rugs, hooked wool pillows, wall decor, and lighting, amongst decorating themes of leaves, pumpkins, turkeys, and more. When it comes to this season’s entertaining however, we ask: who will you invite to the big “turkey day” feast?

At SYW, we suggest inviting some of our charming, collectible harvest time friends to your home this year. For example, to the left we present our Myles & Prudence Pilgrim Soft Sculptures. Returning customer favorites from last year, this pilgrim couple (sold individually) is designed by the well-known artist and designer Joe Spencer; the designer of many of our other Halloween and Christmas soft sculptures. Constructed of soft bodies, both Myles and Prudence wear traditional Pilgrim attire. His velvet clothing including a brown jacket and green pants, is complete with the brass buckles on his hat and shoes. Myles appropriately carries a colorful turkey sculpture. Prudence is delighted to bring her bright orange pumpkin to dinner this year. She wears a faux lace apron atop her velvet brown dress, which is adorned with intricate stitching on her collar and sleeves. All of the beautiful details achieved on these sculptures, are highlighted by their hand painted faces. They boast a weighted bottom for sitting on chairs, your staircase or perhaps a mantle. Available during our Harvest Sale for $119.95 each; that’s a savings of $20!

New from the designers of Williraye Studio, we introduce our Main Course Delivery Sculpture, shown here to the left. A comical decorative for the Thanksgiving holiday, this corn shaped car is on its way to deliver the main course of the Thanksgiving feast. The wheels actually move to carefully enjoy rolling the sculpture; this is not a toy. Made of resin, as all the collectible sculptures from Williraye Studio are, it is taken from a mold that is originally handcrafted and hand painted by the talented Bobbe Punzel-Schuknecht & Jeff Schuknecht. Painted with distinctive fall colors, the Main Course Delivery sculpture is a great addition to your harvest decor. Available for just $34.95 during are Harvest Sale going on now.

Other harvest time collectibles from Williraye Studio include our
Race to the Feast Pilgrim Sculpture (similar in design to Main Course Delivery), and the popular Turkey on Pumpkin Sculpture (as seen on the cover of our early holiday catalog). In addition, all of the items featured here will receive FREE SHIPPING as part of our holiday promotion.
