Season of Joy Must-Haves

Monday, November 28th, 2016

After a weekend of Thanksgiving leftovers and visiting with friends and family, we are launching further into the holiday season, or the season of joy. This week’s must-haves will bring joy to your home and special occasions as you gather, celebrate and cherish the season.

Joy Applique PillowJoyful Snowman Mantel Stocking Holder


Snowmen will never go out of style; their joyful faces warm any room, and our Joy Applique Pillow and Joyful Snowman Mantel Stocking Holder are no exceptions. The wool appliqued JOY creates a handmade look on this uniquely shaped accent pillow, fit for a rustic bench or as a decorative on the sofa throughout the winter season and the holidays.

This snowman mantel accessory will not only hold your Christmas stockings until the 25th, but will add accent lighting to a family room or bedroom. The sparkly red berries and greenery add an extra touch of festivity.

Shiny-Brite Seasonal Sparkle Ornament Set


Ornaments can ignite memories of holidays past, like those spent as a child, or when you spent your first Christmas as a couple, or when your own children crafted homemade ornaments. Trimming the Christmas tree is always personal, whether the ornaments, lights and garland are complementary or completely one-of-a-kind.

Reminiscent of treasured holidays, this set of Shiny-Briteā„¢Ā Ornaments is perfect for carrying on traditions or starting new ones with the family. With just enough glitter and shine, they come in their own box for storage or to be given as a gift.

The other must-have ornament is one for your table lamps or floor lamps. Designed to look like a charming gift box, this sparkling red lamp finial puts the finishing touches on your holiday decorating.

Good Tidings

A country Christmas – or any Christmas at all – is not complete without holiday sentiments and cheerful carols.

Our Fa La La Sign is crafted out of wood; rustic wall art like this enhances the comfort of your home and brightens up your walls with both vibrant color and a festive song.

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).

After trick-or-treating, spooky celebrations, costume parties and stashing away some of the kids’ candy for later, it’s time to change your batty decor into turkeys and gourds. Or, if you like getting ahead of the decorating game, it’s time for jingle bells and stockings.
