Red Apple MasterWe’ve been featuring apples in our recipes this month, which has inspired us to Spotlight five of our favorite apple themed items from our web and online catalogs. From décor to foods, you can satisfy all of your apple needs with Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, and incorporate a little autumn charm in your home throughout the year.

The first essential apple item is our Apple Master – an apple corer and peeler extraordinaire! This handy kitchen tool makes preparing apples much easier and simpler so you can make your pies, squares, muffins and other goodies more quickly and in a more organized fashion. The red color makes a decorative statement in any kitchen, especially during peak apple season.Country Recipe Box

Featuring an appealing apple pie and country checks, this charming box keeps your favorite recipes in one place and gives your kitchen counters a cozy touch, especially when placed next to cook books and classic cooking accessories.

If you want to keep those apple treats at home but are looking for a similar gift for a family member or friend, we recommend our Dutch Apple Preserves.

Rhody Rug’s Heritage Braided Rug – All Around the House

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

There are few places left state side that create the beautiful pieces that exist in our homes; it’s a global world and so are the things we surround ourselves with, but Rhody Rug sticks out as one of the few that brings us handmade quality products from right here in New England.

A handful of Rhode Islanders create each and every rug. When you buy one their rugs from us not only are you getting a great US made product, but each is touched by the artisan hands of the folks at Rhody Rug. A customer favorite is the Heritage Braided Rug that they create for us. This collection of rugs are 100% polypropylene – making them amazingly easy to clean. When they get dirty, we like to take them outside and just give them a good hosing to clean them up. Let them drip dry and they are ready for more.

This also means the rug is ready for the outdoors. With everyone making a second living space outdoors, a braided rug could tie the whole backyard together. How often have you seen a nice strong colored rug under a patio table? Soften that concrete slab up a bit, make your guests feel at home in the back of your’s. The Heritage braid stick out to us because of the classic colors throughout with smooth border transitions that create a perfect classic rug. From black to burgundy to spruce to tan there is a color to fit any room’s decor - including the outdoors. They aren’t crunchy like most polypropylene rugs either – Rhody makes them soft and are barefoot-ready.

It’s always nice to bring a piece of the indoors out, and the Heritage Braided Rug from Rhody rug is one of our favorites. What is your piece of indoor living that you bring outside?
