Monday Must-Haves: Halloween in the USA

Monday, October 12th, 2015

Fall Memories Tile & EaselWe hope you’re continuing to enjoy our Holiday 2015 Catalog – both in print and online. For this week’s Must Haves, we’re featuring new signs and art that speak to the season, and they are all made in the USA. These make the perfect accents to your spooky décor and charming home design; happy decorating!

Pat Isaac

Halloween House Wall Hanging

The Fall Memories Tile and Easel is perfect for a small table, bookshelf or mantel in any room. Artist Pat Isaac designed the charismatic imagery and varying fonts to add a fun look to the traditional materials, giving you a unique and eye-catching accent for decorating year after year.

Black Hat Society Sign Blocks

Another Pat Isaac Must-Have complements the imagery on the tile and is part of a collectible series of wall hanging (or shelf-sitting) houses. This one incorporates charming Halloween and fall details into the design for a versatile seasonal accent to display in your own home.

Pat Hutter

Artist Pat Hutter created the Black Hat Society Sign Blocks, a unique trifecta to express Halloween spirit in an entryway, reading nook, or anywhere in your home. Vivid orange and complementary black provide the background for the Halloween-inspired text and traditional pointed witch hat; a traditionally created accent with a distinctive design.

All About the Shoes Sign

A second made in the USA Pat Hutter design is seen in this green sign, featuring classic witch shoes complemented by an asymmetrical wire hanger and black bow. Hang on a doorknob or lean against a bookshelf for an amiable, eye-catching look.

Yes, I Can Drive a Stick SignWonderful Whimsy

Last but certainly not least, this witchy saying brings a lighter feel to Halloween decorations and accents while complementing those accents with its black and white façade. Add a little whimsy to your seasonal décor as well as country charm to your home with this rustic pine sign (and our four other Must-Haves!).

Save on Website Exclusive Halloween Signs

Friday, September 28th, 2012

Halloween is just a little over a month away and it’s time to start decorating. At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop there is plenty of home decor to choose from this Halloween season. Today however, we want to bring your attention to our new Website Exclusive Halloween signs that are proudly made here in the USA. Crafted of solid knotty pinewood, these handcrafted signs are made by the skilled artisans and craftsmen at Sawdust City in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Pictured above is our If the Broom Fits Ride It Sign. Painted orange with black undertones, this comical sign is detailed of black font and a little image of witch riding  a broom. This sign would look great in any room of the home for a good laugh at your Halloween get-together, and is on sale now for just $19.95.

Next up is our Double Double Toil & Trouble Sign, shown here to the left. The well known beginning to many bewitching spells, “Double double toil and trouble, Fire burn and cauldron bubble,” reads the spooky wall sign. The edges are beveled and slightly distressed, for an aged appeal. Completing the images is an appropriate witch’s cauldron in a coordinating bright, witchy green. Customers can purchase this sign for $19.95 while supplies last.

Sawdust City’s signs offer a nostalgic feel to your home’s wall decor. Exposed wood grain and the distressing applied to each handmade sign is what gives the signs their true appeal. Looking for a thoughtful gift idea? These American made signs are always a good choice; and an Eco-friendly choice at that. Sawdust City has been recognized as an entirely “green” company. After research and verification from their lumber supplier, they can proudly say that all of the lumber used to create their products is provided by high quality sawmills who follow Green Forestry Initiatives. It’s not only the wood that’s environmentally conscious, it’s the water based paints used  too.

Other new Halloween signs from Sawdust City include the Eat Drink Be Scary Sign for $29.95, and the hilarious Broomstick Halloween Sign for $19.95. Save on your Halloween wall decor this year by considering any of these reduced priced signs; hurry, as there are limited quantities available.

Halloween Soft Sculptures by Artist Joe Spencer at SYW

Monday, September 24th, 2012

Artist and designer Joe Spencer has shared many of his collectible soft sculptures with us at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop over the years. His amazing collection from Gathered Traditions is one that is recognized by his fans and collectors as a true work of art. Joe Spencer’s talent ranges from everyday to holiday specific characters, all with their own quirky individuality. Here we’ll introduce to you some of the new Halloween themed sculptures. Perhaps you’ll consider one or all for your Halloween decorating this year.

Pictured here to the left is our new fall 2012, Clarice the Witch Soft Sculpture. Clarice the Witch ponders over which spell to cast on the orange pumpkin head she carries. This soft Halloween sculpture is designed by the well-known artist Joe Spencer; featuring the same attention detail we have come to expect from his designs. Details of note include her bulging, green painted eyes, her black nails, and her realistic, white yarn hair. Dressed in black with orange accents, she is weighted like all of our soft sculptures, to sit up right on a bench or chair in your home.

The hand painted details are what give these sculptures their true character. With out a doubt, the expression on Norbert the Vampire’s face is from the creative mind of Joe Spencer. Norbert, shown here to the left, has large green eyes and pressed together, tiny red lips which offer a slight charm to his demeanor. His black suit is adorned with bead button accents on his shirt and his black shiny cape boasts a shiny red on the reverse. Norbert’s fancy white gloves and black shoes complete the look.

Pair this soft sculpture with his companion, Xanzabelle the Witch, the lovely witch seen here to the right. Xanzabelle is a festive little witch, who although is much smaller than Clarice, stands tall with her own unique appeal. This couple shares the same whimsical green eyes, for a spooky addition to your Halloween decor. Collect all of the soft sculptures by designer Joe Spencer at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop and consider displaying them on your staircase for a frightful sight this season. The authentic designs produced by Mr. Spencer are ones that we have come to appreciate year after year, and as with other Joe Spencer enthusiasts, are always excited to see what he’ll come up with next.
