Weekly Spotlight: Trimming the Tree with New Holiday Ornaments

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Handcarved Santa Wood OrnamentGlittered Santa Ornament SetDo you put your Christmas tree up immediately after Halloween, or wait until the turkey is carved and leftovers are stored away? No matter the timing, trimming the tree is always exciting, especially when you add new holiday ornaments.

Here are five of our favorite new ornaments – both from the pages of our catalog and exclusively on our website. Happy holidays!

Primitive Felt Stocking Ornaments

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Santa ornaments combine festivity with the comforting nostalgia of the season – especially when they are embellished with glitter and arrive as a set. These glittered Santas add a cohesive look to your Christmas tree, and twinkle among string lights and other holiday home accents. This wooden Santa is hand carved – no two are alike – by artist Les Smith, and adds a rustic, log cabin feel to your ornaments and decorations. It also makes a unique gift to bring to a holiday party.

Stockings Hung by the Chimney with Care

A primitive take on Christmas stockings, these felt ornaments feature a slender design and antiqued jingle bells. Made right here in Maine, you can place a piece of the Pine Tree State on your Christmas tree this year, give one of these ornaments as a gift to a party hostess, or even use to embellish a Christmas gift.

Folk Art Festive Moose OrnamentNathan Reindeer Costume OrnamentNot a Creature was Stirring

You may recall the George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and other Bert Anderson folk art ornaments. This year, we are introducing his new folk art moose, featuring the whimsical twine arms and legs and a blue Christmas gift wrapped beautifully. This ornament makes a charming complement to your country home accents and rustic decor.

Also from a customer favorite artist, Nathan the Reindeer is a glittery holiday spectacle that adds childhood whimsy to your tree or festive holiday displays. The large candy cane adds a pop of color, as do the striking blue eyes of this character designed by artist Bethany Lowe (find more of her ornaments here).

Must Have Bird Accents for Every Occasion

Monday, August 8th, 2016

Friendly Doves Accent LampBird decor has its place in almost every home, no matter the occasion. For this week’s Must Have list, we are introducing you to five of our newest bird themed home accents and accessories so you can update your avian style or add a little natural flair to a space inside and outside of your home.

Bird & Branch Wall Mirror

Our Friendly Doves Accent Lamp is our first must have, because of the fresh look it gives to an accent table or end table. The realistic white doves symbolize peace, friendship and love, which offers warm sentiments to your guests, friends and family. The lamp is perfect to read by, or offers an extra source of accent lighting in a family room, hallway or bedroom. Additionally, all lighting is on sale, so you can save a little extra for another bird home accent.

Owl Bobble Ornament

The weathered look of the Bird & Branch Wall Mirror lends itself to antiqued home accents and vintage style, and the little bird on top completes the timeless rustic charm. Display in an entryway or in a family room as a statement piece or among other mirrors and bird inspired wall art.

Chicks Weekender Bag

For a more ornamental addition to your bird decor, our new Owl Bobble Ornament is just the accent you need. Artist Bert Anderson’s design includes folk art inspiration and charming features, like the antiqued look and jute twine legs. Display in a window or on a seasonal tree for natural avian appeal.

Hanging Mason Jar Bird Feeder

The next must have is a web exclusive item that can be carried with you throughout the day. The Chicks Weekender Bag is the perfect companion to bring along on road trips and weekend getaways, and the little bird flock enhances the charm of the worn look. You could also give this handmade accessory to a friend as a gift; its stylish blue ticking and cotton canvas is a timeless look for any occasion.

Our final must have and the second web exclusive home accent is of the outdoor variety. Combining your love for birds and the country appeal of Mason jars, this charming Mason Jar Bird Feeder will look exceptional in your garden or the backyard. Add your feathered visitors’ favorite feed by unscrewing the bottom, and hang almost anywhere with the included rope. The glass and metal are durable materials, and look great when used in multiples.

With these must haves, your home will be updated with the latest bird decor from the indoor rooms to the outdoor spaces.
