Monday Must-Haves: Freshly Picked Decor

Monday, May 14th, 2018

Summer is here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, and to kick off a new season of blog posts today we’re featuring five must-have home accents from our Summer 2018 catalog (in the mail this week!).

Blue Hydrangea Solar Blossom Stake

The newest addition to our Solar Blossom collection, this beautiful outdoor home accent is a show stopper. Plus, the LED light is solar powered so you can just stake it into your front yard or a garden and let it do its thing.

We’re glad you’re loving the half exposed grapevine base look of some of our wreaths, so for the summer we’ve added an Americana inspired wreath for displaying on a door or wall.

We love the bright colors of this small accent pillow, which will add charm to your home throughout the rest of spring and into the summer time. They synthetic down fill also makes this one of the most coziest pillows to rest upon.

Monday Must-Haves: Spring Cleaning Solutions

Monday, April 9th, 2018

Dusting/Cleaning E-Cloth® Glove | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopRange/Stovetop E-Cloth® | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopWith spring comes the infamous Spring Cleaning ritual. With winter receding and the freshness of spring upon us, this is a great time of year to refresh and rejuvenate our homes. To help you get started on your spring cleaning, or finish it up, today we’re featuring five must-have spring cleaning solutions and home fresheners that you can find at sturbridgeyankee.com.

Microwave Splatter Guard | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

E-Cloths® have become popular for their eco-friendliness and effectiveness. We offer two types of E-Cloths® here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. The first is one designed specifically for range/stovetop cleaning. Using just water and either the scrubbing side or finishing side, your stove will sparkle. The second is actually a glove made for dusting. The non-scratch material allows almost any surface in your home to be dusted quickly, effectively and without damage (unavailable as of May 2018).

Filthy Mutt Dog Soap | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

Often our microwave gets left behind in everyday or weekly cleaning, so here is your reminder to give your microwave a good scrub this spring (you could use the E-Cloth® above!).

After you’re finished, use a Microwave Splatter Guard on your food dishes to prevent splatter and spills from sticking to the inside of your microwave. These guards are dishwasher safe, so you will end up not having to clean anything by hand.

White Floral Shrub Linen Mist | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

Something else on your list of spring cleaning to-dos is likely to get your four-legged family member clean. The Filthy Mutt Dog Soap is made right here in Maine out of natural ingredients and will get your pup clean without the use of harsh chemicals. Since it’s biodegradable, you can even wash your dog outside with this soap (although here in New England we would wait until the spontaneous snow storm and mud seasons are over).

Finish off your spring cleaning with a soothing floral scent spritzed around your home. This linen mist is made in the USA and features imagery by artist Mary Lake Thompson. It can be sprayed on linens, upholstery, pillows and other home accents to create an appealing springtime freshness – especially when your windows are open and the scent can mix with a cool, refreshing spring breeze.
