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-Brite™ 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.

Holiday Decorating with Snowmen

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

Time to Make a Snowman!

“Frosty the snowman, was a jolly happy soul, with a corncob pipe and a button nose and two eyes made out of coal.” As the familiar holiday tune goes, you will be glad to know that at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop we are just bursting at the seams with snowman decor. Snowmen are perfect for this upcoming season because not only are they great for the holidays, but they can bring cheer throughout all of the long winter months.

Featured here to the left is our Soft Snowman Sculpture, or snowwoman rather. She’s caring a “Merry Christmas” wreath to welcome guests into your home and is just filled with Christmas Spirit. Her long white coat is adorned with faux pearl buttons and hanging faux crystals. Made of felted wool, our Snowman Sculpture has a hand painted face and weighted bottom for easy placement on a table or mantle. Handmade in Minnesota and designed by Diana Hamilton.


Frosty Accents

If you’re looking for a snowman for your tree, then we’ve got you covered. Pictured here to the left is our Maine Wool Snowman Ornament; it’s frosty done the Maine way! His lovely blue mittens are attached to bendable wire arms, so he can wave and say hello to all your guests this year. Made of recycled wool, this eco-friendly ornament will surely bring a smile to your face for the holidays. Other snowman ornaments at Sturbridge include our Snowman Wool Ornament, made in the USA and our Frosty Creation Ornaments, which come as a cute set of four mini plates.

Another great snowman accent is found in our cozy Whipstitch Snowman Throw. The ecru colored background is simple, but that’s because the stars of the show are the snowmen bordering the bottom of the throw; dressed to the t with their hat and scarves to keep them warm. Its frayed edges give it a homespun feel and it looks great thrown over a chair or couch anywhere in your home.

Snowman Wall Art

When it comes to snowman wall art we have a nice variety to choose from. Pictured here to the left, is our Snow Buddies Print, bringing back fond memories of a favorite winter time activity, building a snowman! A young boy smiles proudly after adorning his new friend, with a hunting cap, gloves and a warm jacket. Look closely, a feathered friend perches on one arm keeping a watchful eye on the family dog. Artist Bonnie Mohr brings the winter season to life in her unique way.

Our other snowman themed prints are all by renown artist Billy Jacobs. All based on a similar design, the first is our Believe Snowman Print. Displaying an enchanting message of “Believe in the Magic,” it instills in us the feeling of being a kid again. His next snowman print, Mistletoe Snowman Print shows three snowmen lifting each other up to reach the mistletoe; message reads: “Meet Me Under the Mistletoe.” The last but certainly not least, is our Shine Snowman Print. Here we are touched by the innocence captured in the young snowman, reaching up to place a shining gold star atop a lone tree, reading: “Always Shine.” Aww.. don’t you just love snowmen?

Snowman Rugs

We can’t forget about your floors during the winter months! At Sturbridge we have a few snowman themed rugs that will serve as the perfect winter accent in your home. To the left we see our Snowman Star Jute Rug, featuring a snowman star print design by artist Susan Burd. Created with hand stenciling and detailed painting to evoke that “welcome home” feeling, this charming multi color round rug is the right way to greet your guests this season.

Another snowman themed rug is our Friends Welcome Rug (not shown). This cute snowman and his friends red cardinal and penguin, are ready for a fun day playing in the snow! They are all bundled up and ready to welcome your friends in for the holidays this year. A two toned blue braid, borders the cream colored background. Image appears hand painted, by artist Phyllis Stevens. Or, perhaps you will like our Winter Wonderland Rug, which has a slightly more Christmas feel. We see a very happy snowman who is dressed to perfection, surrounded by his friends in the snow covered forest. Painted image, by artist Harry Smith is set atop a cream colored background. This 100% jute braided rug has an enchanting border of various reds and greens in an alternating pattern.

With all of the accent rugs featured here, we recommend a rug liner to ensure your snowman greeter stays in place. Happy decorating from all of us at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop!
