Happy New Year!!

The holidays are over, you are starting to pack away the decorations, now what?
These next few months are sometimes quiet, a time for reflection and rejuvenation. Time to try something new whether it's exercise, new recipes or a little sprucing up around your home. 

Many of us are still spending more time at home because of the Covid virus. A good time to make some changes in your everyday surroundings. In the past year we have added new nautical decor items to our catalog. Check them out, maybe there is something here to brighten up the new year for you. 

Door Mats

Our door mats make a statement with their natural artisan made look. We have 5 different styles and price points. These look great on the steps of a starter home or a mansion! How old is your door mat?

Many people use our wreaths as plate chargers. A decorative layer that sits beneath the dinner plate. Wreaths can also be used as centerpieces with a flower vase or bowl. Thank you @thecreativegeneri and @IngridBrown for the two beautiful table top photos below!
