Finding Good Blankets & Quilts In Preparation For Fall & Winter

Finding Good Blankets & Quilts In Preparation For Fall & Winter

The best part of the last two seasons of the year is the opportunity to get cuddled under a nice soft blanket or quilt after a long and cold day.

 

Fall and winter are those seasons where we get excited about the cozy pieces in our wardrobe and the chance to curl up and get warm under a blanket. While we don’t wish these two seasons to come too fast, having the chance to snuggle up, though, is welcomed.

 

Sometimes all it takes for you to de-stress from a difficult day trudging through the damp, cold, and blustery snow is knowing there is a super soft, big, warm, and inviting blanket at home.

 

Keeping blankets and quilts on hand at home during the fall and winter months is always a good idea. Blankets and quilts are different but generally offer the same results.

 

Blankets can be made of various fabrics and are typically plush and fluffy. Blankets are often one color, but can be of a certain design theme like a holiday.

 

Quilts are a patchwork of patterns and are commonly thinner than a blanket, but still provide plenty of warmth. Quilts are colorful and definitely full of varying patterns, themes, and designs.

 

The Red Brick Cottage has a wide variety of blankets and quilt bedding sets available in great colors and themes. All are of high quality and provide lasting comfort and warmth during those cold, yet cozy seasons.

 

If you have any questions about our blankets or quilt sets, feel free to contact us. We are here to help you stay warm.

Preparing Your Backyard For Summer

Preparing Your Backyard For Summer

The first official day of summer 2015 is June 21st. While that is still a month away, you may be itching to get your outdoor space ready for entertaining and relaxing in the sun.

 

After the winter we had, a great summer is well deserved and the best place to spend lazy summer days is in your very own backyard.

 

Your backyard is your own personal oasis to do with it as you wish. Whether you have a grand patio with elegant furniture or a simple grassy space with wicker benches and chairs, it is a space for you to relax.

 

An outdoor space would not be the same without picnic accessories and decor. To complete the look, you don’t want to forget the tableware, items for the garden, and party accessories. Having these will help you create a truly special place in your backyard.

 

Some of what can be utilized outdoors are: Preparing Your Backyard For Summer

 

  • Weather resistant table linens along with plates and utensils. You can find a unique pattern to suit your style, rather than having to go plain.
  • Furniture accents are the simplest pieces for spicing up a space. Decorative throw pillows, blanket for those cold evenings, and foot rests make a very inviting space.
  • Lanterns, flameless candles, decorative baskets, and wreaths are not only great additions to decor, but they are useful as well.

 

As you begin preparing for summer, don’t forget about making your yard the ideal space that you want to spend with family and friends or for a peaceful day alone. Also don’t forget to complete your rustic, traditional country display at home this Memorial Day and summer. The epitome of patriotism, the amazing 18″ reversible Indoor/Outdoor Prim Flag Pillow is a must have. This will also make an amazing gift item for the patriot in your life!

A Flameless Candle With a Realistic Moving Flame

A Flameless Candle With a Realistic Moving Flame

Candles evoke a sense of calming and illuminate a space to feel cozy and romantic. While candles are a wonderful décor accent of a home, they can be hazardous in the wrong conditions, such as with small children, pets and those with allergies.

 

In the above scenarios, candles can do more harm than good and that is just not a risk we’re sure you want to take. Small children are unexpected with their curiosity, pets won’t understand the danger of a candle, and candle scents and smoke can wreak havoc on a person’s allergies. These circumstances can certainly become a bummer for those who truly love burning candles.

 

Go Flameless Without the Real Candle Complications

A Flameless Candle With a Realistic Moving Flame

 

However, there is a solution to burning a candle without worry. Can you believe that there is a battery operated and flameless candle? Well there is and it looks and acts just like a real candle without a real flame. There is no scent emanated from the candle, but you get that same comforting glow.

 

These candles are so realistic, it is unbelievable. The plastic flame moves in a natural way, mimicking that of a flamed candle and has a smooth texture as well. There is an on/off switch with a 5 hour run time and 19 hour shut off time. The candle is stunning itself, which makes it a bonus feature for room décor. Your holiday decorating will be complimented with these candles, guaranteed.

 

Without the hassle of lighting a candle or the worry that you might’ve forgotten to blow it out, this regular or primitive flameless candle gives you all that a real candle would. If this is a product you find interesting, you can contact us at The Red Brick Cottage. You may also make an order online!
