Favorite things: holiday edition

Every once in a while we like to share a top 10 list with you of customer favorites and top-selling items. In November, not surprisingly, a lot of those items were holiday themed. So if you're still decorating and getting ready for holiday guests, this may be the list for you! Here are the top 10 items our customers loved the most in November.

  Iron Plain Stocking Hanger - this was our most popular seller last month by a landslide! It's a great way to hang your stockings by the mantle with care, without putting a giant hole there! Iron stocking hanger

  Simple Iron Taper Holder - simple, but charming. HRS-46218-Simple-Iron-Taper-Holder-LRG

  Checker Berry place mat - Checker Berry does offers a charming look for the holidays, but our customers love this design all year long! (The Checker Berry napkins are popular too!) checkerberry table settings

  Believe Snowman Tree Topper C484-Believe-Snowman-Tree-Topper_LRG

  Burnt Ivory 6" Timer Taper HRS-84035-Burnt-Ivory-4-in-Timer-Taper-LRG

Baby, it's cold outside!

Here are some of our favorite ways to warm up!

A roaring fire - But since we don't all have a wood-burning fire place, the rest of us can watch this eight-hour YouTube video of a roaring fire, complete with tranquil crackling sounds. I feel warmer already.

Candy cane cocoa - perfect for sipping by that roaring fire.

Area rugs - Experts agree that an area rug can add insulation to a hard wood or tile floor. Floors account for as much as 10% of heat loss if they're not insulated, according to the National Energy Foundation (NEF). We have a huge selection of braided, woven, jute and hooked rugs to add warmth --and character-- to your home this winter. PKD-384-38-Log-Cabin-Hooked-Rug-48x72-LRG

Bake cookies - Extra calories provide the energy you need to stay warm when it's cold, and while they're baking, you can hover near the warmth of your oven.

Bundle up - Instead of turning up the heat, turn up the charm with a knit throw blanket! (And we have pillows and quilted bedding to match!)

October favorites

Here's another edition of customer favorites! These are our top-selling items from the last month. And just for fun, we've included some pieces that coordinate well with each item on the list. Enjoy!

  Burlap Natural Valance - so versatile! Match it up with the Burlap Natural tiers and complete the look with a Checkerberry oval braided rug.

  32-NNN-BRLP-BN1210-VLN-Burlap-Valance_LRGVHC-BUN-00408-Burlap-Natural-36-Inch-Curtain-Tiers-LRG IHB-181-Checkerberry-Oval-Braided-Rug-LRG

  Sturbridge Wine Window Valance - We have a ton of Sturbridge Wine items and it would be a no-brainer to pair this valance with the tiers, bedding and rugs , and they would all look fantastic! But you could also consider coordinating this with a chicken wire dome pendant light to take that country farmhouse look to the next level! PKD-315-VL-K-Sturbridge-Wine-Window-Valance-LRG Chicken wire dome light

  Vintage Star Black Place Mat - We have so many black star things, we've dedicated entire blog posts to them. Coordinating items for the place mat obviously include the napkin, table runner and dish towel. But also consider the Texas Star black rectangle jute rug or one of our new black star timer taper candles.


  Saffron valance - For tans and neutrals, pair this with a cable bed scarf. To work in the sage/olive tones, pair it with a Booker plaid woven rug. The rust tones coordinate well with the rusty bucket lamp shown below!

  PKD-600-47-Saffron-Valance_LRGDAB-Booker-Plaid-Sage-LRG WTT-TLA54366RU-Large-Rusty-Bucket-Lamp-LRG

  Grandma's Quilt lined valance - This patchwork design is such a classic country look and there are so many ways to work this into your existing decor. Our primitive nesting boxes coordinate well with the tones in the valance, and the Grandma's Quilt braided chair pads really look darling in a country kitchen.

  What colors do you have in your house and how do you coordinate/contrast them with other decorative pieces?
