Holiday giveaway!

Good morning!

How about a holiday giveaway to kick off your hump day? We would love to have some new friends on Facebook and Twitter, so we’re giving away a Mr. Freezey primitive snowman to one of our lucky friends! (Get it? Because he’s FREE.)

Mr. Freezey is a 17″ tall over-stuffed snowman wearing a battered top hat and long woolie scarf. He’s got twig arms, carrot nose and snowflake “buttons,” like any good snowman should have.

How to enter:

All you have to do is go to our Facebook or Twitter page and leave us a comment, telling us your favorite holiday tradition. (Bonus entry if you comment in both places!)

Then, come back over here and leave a comment telling us that youdid it. (This will make it easier to notify the winner.)

That’s it! No strings attached. We will count all entries and choose one winning number at random. You have until Sunday night at 12:00 AM EST to enter, and we will announce the winner on Monday.

Good luck!

Hit the lights

Winter is right around the corner, and we thought it would be a great time to share some of our best-selling (and favorite!) accent lamps and lighting ideas to keep your home warm and inviting during these cold winter months.

Accent lamps

The wide star pottery jug lamp is on of our best-selling lamps, and we offerseveral other items in this design, like pitchers, jugs, and canisters that would look great in a kitchen or even a den or sitting room.

Accent the Wide Star collection with a piece of garland or a braided rug:


Our primitive bowl lamp is also a big seller (and my personal favorite). The bold colors go with a variety of decors, and there's really nothing else like it. (But hurry, limited quantities are available!)

And if you really love this design, we sell an electric tart warmer that is very similar!

You can browse the rest of our accent lamps here.


We offer a great variety of shades to mix and match with any of our lamps.

The Sturbridge wine shade is by far our best-selling shade:

It is available in three sizes: 6", 10" and 12". (And also in more colors!) The entire Sturbridge collection is available on our website and is well-loved by our customers.

The Cambridge plaid shades are also very popular, and can be accented with matching curtains and valances.


Our punched tin shade is another popular style. These come in a variety of sizes, designs and colors, and are easy to coordinate with virtually any of our home decor patterns.

One idea: pair the Red Star punched tin shade in a bedroom with the vintage star quilted throw:


The punched tin lamps also come in night light form!

How do you like to stay warm and cozy during the winter?
