Our Arts & Crafts inspired holiday tablecloth features a unique panel design, which incorporates the beauty of a placemat into the tablecloth itself. Three highlight strips provide the perfect backdrop for your best china and flatware. We selected two gorgeous fabrics from Joel Dewberry's Deer Valley collection. The striking patterns and interlocking architectural motifs create an elegant Thanksgiving theme.

Pretty Prints Please: Butterfly Pillow Shams

Pillow shams are a pretty way to keep things tidy up top. Bigger than a toss pillow, they not only contain a regular size bed pillow inside, they're large enough to cover up other pillows in regular pillowcases underneath. Our four-patch shams mirror the design of the Pretty Prints Please Butterfly Duvet. But of course, you can create your own design to match your room, someone's favorite colors, or even to celebrate a favorite hobby or animal or school: patchwork ponies or volleyballs or team mascots.

Pretty Prints Please: Patchwork Butterfly Duvet

Tuesday, 27 October 2009 9:00

The biggest item in most bedrooms is the bed, therefore, it ranks as star-of-the-show in our teen room makeover. Plus, as anyone who knows a teen understands (or anyone who remembers being a teen); many, many hours are spent in said bed. In fact, I think most of the day would be spent there given Mom's permission and a nearby bag of Doritos® for sustenance. Our patchwork duvet is made from a dozen different fabric cuts, but they're cleverly sized into just three simple panels.

Monogram Week: How to Monogram a Plush Towel

Tuesday, 20 October 2009 9:00

Monogrammed towels lend a lush and elegant accent to any bathroom. And they make fabulous gifts for newlyweds or an anniversary. The only problem is they're often far too pretty to actually use. I've gotten past this problem by pretending my bathroom is really part of a luxury suite at a five-star resort. This image is usually shattered when my teenage son wanders through the door in his boxers looking for toothpaste. If monogrammed towels keep me close to my dream ... I'm usin' 'em!

Your choices for Halloween treat bags are many and varied: paper pouches, hard plastic pumpkins, even the old-standby: a pillowcase. But none of those is as cute as our reversible fabric tote. The easy patchwork pattern is bright and fun, but still filled with your favorite Halloween icons, like bats and spiders and moons. The heavy-duty webbing handles mean your little goblins can fill up with lots of tasty treats. And, it's a Green Halloween alternative to all the traditional throw-away decorations.

Do you have a host of Halloween goblins headed your way? Roll out this fast and easy table runner and spread out all your goodies in style. The simple patchwork design is made up of 40 squares, which makes a colorful grid of stripes, dots, bats and spiders. It's a little bit spooky and a little bit kooky. HA! Now you have the Addams Family theme stuck in your head for the rest of the day.

The hostess apron is a nod to the more elegant entertaining of days gone by, when a beautiful apron was a critical part of your party ensemble. We've brought back this vintage accessory, but with a bright new spin to match the playful palette of our Citrus Holiday projects. We combined five different Heather Bailey fabrics, then added a deep wine red for the waistband and all the ties. Flouncy skirt tiers and a bold bow we tied jauntily at the shoulder are the finishing touches that make this apron a stand out.

Sofa Caddy

Sometimes, I think my TV remote has a mind of its own. Nine times out of ten, it's not where I want it when I sit down. I figure it must get up and leave when I'm not looking. Same thing goes for all my other controls ... never around when I need them (much like gas stations). This cool sofa caddy keeps everything right at my fingertips, The pockets all have the perfect expandable gusset: big enough to easily slide stuff in and out, but not so big that things topple out.

There's one in every family. The helpful host/hostess who just won't rest – always rushing around to make sure everyone else is in tip-top shape. You know who I mean, don't you? This special holiday pillow is for that special holiday someone. Toss it his or her way and demand they 'SIT!' Bold red letter appliqués and matching red piping make a statement even Helpful Hannah (or Hank) will have to stop and pay attention to. The pillow is reversible, so when they pop up again to refill your glass, you can flip it over and try again later.
