Combining two of the best worlds in country home furnishings – indoor/outdoor and braided – the Perry Accent Mat is made to function as a durable doormat while offering the traditional charm of a braided rug. Its slim construction allows most entryway doors to glide right over the top, preventing the rug from bunching or catching on your door. The polypropylene fibers and rubber backing are easy to clean and won’t slip on most surfaces.

Weekly Spotlight: What We’re Thankful For

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Family & Friends

Gathering with friends and family is not just something we are thankful for during the holidays, but are thankful for every opportunity to show those close to us how important they are.

Pets (who are really part of the family)

We are definitely thankful for our pets – from horses to cats and dogs to the smallest goldfish.

Home-Cooked Meals

There’s nothing like a home-cooked meal to fill our homes with warm aromas and feelings of love that go into  the most thoughtful breakfasts, heartiest dinners and sweetest desserts (especially around the holidays when we can share with friends and family).

The Simple Things

These include laughter, politeness, conversation and all other of life’s simple things. They bring us down to earth and give us a little relief when other things are a little chaotic.


And of course, we are thankful for all of you who welcome us into your homes and are gracious with words of endearment as well as suggestions on how we can serve you better. Thank you!

What are five things you are most thankful for? Express them here or around the dinner
table this Thursday in front of those you love most. Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Wednesday Spotlight: Bookends

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

We have entered the last full month of summer, and we hope that you’ve been able to cross off most if not all of those titles on your summer reading list. To give you some decorative ideas for displaying and organizing your tomes, this week we are spotlighting some of our favorite bookends. We hope you’ll find a pair to complement your décor, and we would love to hear how you keep your treasured books in place! Happy reading!

Westie Bookends

This cute Westie pair is a customer favorite. Whether you decorate with doggy or pet décor, or like simply designed, rustic pieces for displaying in your home, these bookends will become a classic staple on your bookshelf, and will always look excited to see you as you grab your next title.

Whale Bookends

For nautical or beach house décor, these Whale Bookends have been creatively designed to complement oceanic accents. The continuation of the whale through the books you place in the middle adds nice movement to a stationary bookcase or cocktail table. The distressed surface gives it an antiqued look, great for providing a cozy atmosphere in your favorite room.

Another distressed, antiqued pair is the tall rabbits that are simply designed to complement any décor. Whether you choose to display them among other animal or spring décor, or decide to create an imaginative reading nook around the books they hold these fun rabbits will be a welcome addition to your home.

Rabbit BookendsOwl BookendsBookend LampOwls are associated with wisdom, so it makes sense to incorporate them around your books that are full of knowledge and storytelling. Like the Whale Bookends, this pair creates movement through your horizontal stack of books with the tree branch they are perched on. Incorporate a bird theme into your library or office nook with these bookends, or simply display them as a cute accent piece.

Last but not least is our Bookend Lamp. Although you will have to be a little more selective with the books you choose to display with this, you get ample lighting for any reading nook, office space or family room. The scrolled design and antiqued appearance give this accent a worldly aesthetic; perfect for travelling the worlds between the pages of your favorite novels.
