Top 5 Monday Must-Haves: The Great Outdoors

Monday, June 8th, 2015

June is a great time to get outside and enjoy natural sights, favorite parks, and beautiful flowers along with the great weather associated with summer. In fact, June has been designated as National Outdoors Month, and is supplemented by various events throughout the month to inspire people to get outside and explore. For this week’s Must-Haves, we are bringing you some outdoors-y inspiration for your home décor, so you can enjoy the great outdoors inside your home as well as outside.

Canoe Dog Pillow

On the Water

For many people, getting outdoors has a lot to do with retreating to an aquatic location, whether that is a backyard swimming pool, a river, a lake, or the ocean. Our Canoe Dog Pillow incorporates the water activities of canoeing and fishing with a canine companion – a member of the family for some of us. The hand hooked wool provides soft comfort while the colors add some life to any furniture and room.Coastal Serenity Print

For a more realistic image, our Coastal Serenity Print gives us a beautiful, sloping view of the ocean, lined with traditional homes and calming greenery. Incorporate into your nautical or nature-inspired décor during the summertime, or display all year round as a reminder of the great outdoors during the summer months.

For a lakeside home or retreat, our Go Jump in the Lake Sign is a fun piece of wall décor that will motivate you to go outside and enjoy the cool water, whether you actually jump in or just enjoy the view from the shoreline.Go Jump in the Lake Sign

Back on Land

Even on those not-so-sunny days you want to be reminded of the joys of the outdoors. The above items will do this, as will our Beige Garden Delight Pillow. With flower and bird imagery, you won’t just love admiring this pillow; you’ll love the comfort it provides you with as you read a book or take an afternoon nap.

Finally, you’ll need something that helps to keep your home clean from sand, dirt, and mud that can be tracked through. Our Wipe Your Paws Rug features cute imagery of a dog running through flowers, and an attention-grabbing green color that will keep its vibrancy year after year. Use it inside an entryway or outside on a covered porch to keep your home clean and decorated this summer.Beige Garden Delight PillowWipe Your Paws Rug

We cannot believe that June is so close; it seems like we have just transitioned into May, and it has gone by in a flash. Although we wish time would slow down just a little bit, we are excited for you to receive our summer catalog and to peruse all of our new and USA sale items. To get you started, we’ve chosen five new items for this week’s Monday Must-Haves, which we know you’ll love for their timeless, classic charm and decorative appeal. Happy shopping!

We are loving the whale decor this summer, and this Tin Whale Keepsake is no exception. Its distressed surface adds the look of barnacles to the blue and gray colors, creating a realistic display complete with a friendly smile and eye details. This whale will fit right in with either your airy nautical decor, or will make a welcoming addition to your rustic or primitively styled furniture and decor.

Top 5 Monday Must-Haves: Curtains

Monday, April 27th, 2015

It’s hard to believe we are already in the last week of April! We hope these April showers will be bringing May flowers; in our gardens, around our front porches, and in the planters within our homes. Ideally we would like to view our spring blooms outside, but in the off-chance the weather doesn’t cooperate, we’ll have to settle looking out of windows; well-decorated windows that is. This week’s 5 Must Have list is made up of some of our newest curtain collections for dressing up or accenting your windows, regardless of the weather outside.

Deering Plaid Curtains
These bold plaid curtains are anything but dreary; the simple design will look great in any kitchen or dining room all year long. Choose from the gathered swag, panels, valance, tiers, or combine the pieces for a more cohesive look throughout your home. Enhance the look by layering this collection with lace curtains, or make a striking statement for using the pieces individually. You really can’t go wrong.

Check & Stars Curtains (Valance)

Check & Stars Curtains
This collection features an accenting valance machine embroidered with stars and the check pattern, giving any room of your home some added flair. Available in either Garnet or Indigo, these classically styled curtains will complement primitive decor and accent more modern room designs, so use them over sheer curtains or by themselves to dress up your windows.

Check & Stars Curtains (Tiers)Burlap & Plaid Tie Curtains (Tiers)Burlap & Plaid Tie Curtains
Yes, another plaid collection – but don’t skim over it just yet. This curtain group is different than other plaid groups in that the plaid accents the edge of these burlap cotton tiers and valance. The classic Sturbridge plaid is continued on the ties, which give these window dressings and your home a little more personality and a little less formality for the freshness and spontaneity of the spring season.

Dotted Blackout Panels
As the temperatures increase and we see more of the sun, blackout curtains become almost a necessity. Our Dotted Blackout Panels are the perfect solution; they will block out the sunlight and the warmth that comes with it during the hottest of days, and even act as noise reducers. You also don’t have to sacrifice style; available in three colors with a simple dotted pattern, these panels will make a statement in any room. Keep them up all year round too – in the winter they will absorb that heat from the sun, giving your home some natural warmth.

Scalloped Leaf Lace Curtains (Swag)

Scalloped Leaf Lace Curtains
We couldn’t leave lace off this list, so rounding out our curtain must-haves are our Scalloped Leaf Lace Curtains. The large leaf detailing is simple, yet adds an elegant quality to your windows. When used alone, this collection gives your home an airy feel, perfect for the freshness of spring and the dog days of summer. Use on a door to easily admire your backyard garden, or in a family room to complete a relaxing atmosphere.
