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.

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).

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!

Made in the USA: Entryway Decorating

Monday, October 28th, 2013

Greet your guests as soon as they arrive with a welcoming atmosphere that will make them want to come inside and stay for a warm cup of tea. Here we feature some of our favorite furnishings to spruce up your entryway or mudroom, all made right here in the USA.

Fantastic Florals

It is easy to grab attention with our range of natural and faux floral arrangements, but there is something extra special about these options. Perhaps it is because they use nature inspired components, or the fact that they are created in the beautiful Cape Cod area along the ocean in Massachusetts.  You could even use this wreath above your mantel space, or as part of your table centerpiece for a dramatic appearance. These displays are expertly arranged to enhance the handmade appeal. Please note, these wreaths are recommended for indoor use only. Here we have our Merlot Willow Wreath, Enchanted Forest Wreath and First Snow Wreath.

High Back Bench with Tree Carving

A Comfortable Seat With Rustic Charm

All of our made in the USA knotty pine furniture is primitive, natural, and full of country charm. This bench, with its tree shaped cut out, is perfect for year round use. Dress it down in the off season with woodland themed items, and enhance the holiday appeal all winter long with your favorite red and green decor. This bench will offer a place for guests to sit when removing snow covered boots, or a neat option for displaying your favorite hooked wool pillows.


A Place To Wipe Your Feet

No one likes muddy foot tracks across the house, which is why doormats are such a great (and often needed) addition to your entryway or mudroom. It is okay to ask your guests to keep things neat by wiping their feet or removing their shoes when they step inside! These festive doormats feature vivid artwork by artist Dianna Swartz. Choose from the holiday wreath, or the joyful snowman.

Show Off Your Lighter Side

It is easy to see the charm of these knotty pine signs as soon as you look at them. What a cute way to say, ‘holiday cheer is here!’ when guests enter your home. Whether slightly humorous, or down right truthful, the full range of knotty pine signs available on our website are sure to bring a handmade touch to your home this year.
