Old and new

We took a look back at our stats this week to see what our most popular posts have been. Often, this is a tactic bloggers use when we can’t think of anything else to write about! But it’s also a fun way to see just how many new items we’ve added over the years.

Following are our five most popular blog posts of all time, plus some new items we’ve added that we think you’ll love just as much!

5. This just in! Park Designs ceramic dinnerware and bakeware

This post is from last May, when we added the Park Designs ceramics to our website.

Molasses¬†and Old Crow¬†are still a crowd-pleaser…


And Cambridge Navy is a brand new pattern that coordinates well with these pieces.

4. A customer favorite: Vintage Star in black

This pattern continues to be one of our most popular. Vintage, black, stars, what’s not to love?


3. Country quilted bedding collections from IHF

IHF has continually offered some of our most beloved bedding collections, from Checkerberry and Pinwheel, to the new Westbrook pattern, which is another lovely take on quilted patchwork and country stars.

2. Complete the look with kitchen decor + kitchen pottery

This post was published in August of 2011, and we’ve since added many more star-themed kitchen accessories:¬†Star Vine¬†includes ceramic dinnerware and servingware and a complete line of window treatments.

And our number one most popular post of all time: Bathroom decor patterns: shower curtains, rugs, towels and more.

Casual Classics

This collection is available in six colors: Persimmon, Evergreen, Bisque, Chocolate, Leaf Green and Dijon. They’re great to mix and match, and we have a huge assortment of coordinating place settings, kitchen decor and window treatments.

We also think our copper handle place settings and serving sets¬†pair well with any one of the above patterns. They have a great look that’s rustic, but sophisticated!
