Friday, December 14th, 2012

At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, there are still plenty of great items available for your holiday shopping and decorating needs. In today’s blog we feature a selection of our snowman themed products, that not only are perfect for the coming weeks, but would be suitable throughout the entire winter season.

Pictured here to the left is our Soft Snowman Sculpture with Bear. Available now for $59.95 with Free Shipping, this cute snowman will warm your heart. A cheerful bundle of Christmas spirit, he wears a long red coat detailed with three pinecone buttons. Crafted of felted wool, the snowman’s face is hand painted and he carries a teddy bear with a faux spring of holly berries. Pair with our Soft Plaid Santa Sculpture with Bell for a homespun Christmas season. Featuring a weighted bottom for easy placement on a table or mantle space, the soft sculpture is handmade in Minnesota and designed by Donna Hamilton.

New and exclusive on our website, is the Winter Friends Collection by artist Susan Winget. ‘Winter Friends’ displays a snowy winter scene of a jolly snowman and his cardinal friend. Shown below is our Winter Friends Coaster Set. A set of four coasters comes in a convenient, sturdy and natural wood holder; perfect for gift giving at just $19.95.

The coasters are made in the USA from absorbent, natural stoneware. Using this material allows for the condensation and drips from beverages to be absorbed, and thus better protect your tabletop. A durable cork backing further protects table surfaces from scratches. Enjoying the company of the cardinal perched on one of his branch arms, this snowman is wrapped in a red, green, and blue scarf, with a black top hat and holly berry to complete his look. It’s a charming design, appropriate for use all winter long. Click on the links below to see other items with this same design:
