8 ways to embrace the cold

With snow storms and cold weather hitting much of the country this week, we thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite winter holiday-themed items and some great ways to embrace the colder weather.
  1. Go sledding! And if you don't want to go outside, we have a couple of darling decorative sleds to bring the spirit of the snowy hill indoors.


  2. Bundle up. We've bragged about our fantastic quilts here before, but really, nothing beats a warm quilt on a cold winter day.

  3. Snowmen. If you love snowmen, you've come to the right place.  We have more than 60 snowman-themed items in our inventory, from decorative balls and Christmas tree toppers, to wall hangings and kitchen linens.
