Mugs, by Grasslands Road

Recently some lovely mugs arrived from Grasslands Road, a company that always impresses me with its quality ceramics.  I've been ordering from them for about 3 or 4 years now, and I can't think of one thing that has ever came in broken, chipped, or flawed.  One of the drawbacks of having a web store is that you can't pick up and touch something, to feel the quality or see how it feels in your hands.  You're stuck just taking our word for it!

Well, for whatever it's worth, Grasslands Road makes some of the nicest ceramics we have in our store, and they are very giftable.  Sometimes their mugs can get "lost" on the website, because they don't really fit in a category.  I thought it might be fun to highlight a few of the recent arrivals.

Pink Survivor Mug:


A pretty pink mug with embossed accents, simply stating SURVIVOR with a tiny heart.  I have found several nice Breast Cancer Awareness style things this year, and this mug is one of them.  There is a white one too:

Ivory Survivor Mug:


This one is a bit more unisex, and could indicate a survivor of anything that resonates with you.

Speaking of surviving, we have some baby-themed items starting to trickle in, such as this New Daddy Mug:


We also have New Mommy, New Grandpa, and New Grandma!

Anything with the Serenity Prayer is always popular, and this mug is a beautiful example of the verse...

462194L has the complete serenty text on the back side of the mug.

See all our Grasslands Road offerings HERE.  We receive shipments all throughout the year, so there will always be more.  They are a fairly seasonal company, and most patterns are not carried for more than about a year, so don't wait if you see something you love.

I don't know about you, but my morning cup of jo lingers in my hand a bit longer into the day than usual this time of year.  There's something about a pretty mug that helps brighten up those deary days we can have here in Western Washingon...

Little Bo Peep and Little Lost Lamb by Lori Mitchell

We have a great many Lori Mitchell figurine collectors at The Weed Patch, and I am always being asked what is new.  I'd like to introduce Little Bo Peep and Little Lost Lamb, new for Spring 2014!

Little Bo Peep is one of the first non-bunny spring figures in a number of years, and her little girls and boys always seem to be the cutest.  


Little Bo Peep stands about 6.5 inches tall, and holds a shepherd's hook.  She has a pink and white striped dress, white apron with little blue hankerchief, and a large pink hat with flowers.


Little Lost Lamb is a darling accomanyment to this sweet little girl.  


His chubby little body of fluff is accented with a large blue ribbon and blue polka dot socks.  He holds a yellow daffodil, and stands about 6.5 inches tall.


We have Little Bo Peep and Little Lost Lamb in stock right now, and will be receiving the rest of our Spring/Easter Lori Mitchell and ESC & Company merchandise soon.  See all Lori Mitchell HERE, and all Spring/Easter (so far) HERE.  Enjoy! :)


NEW! Round and Extra-long Tablecloths!

I have been very lax in letting you all know of the wonderful new gifts and home decor we have coming in, so some of my goals for 2014 is do a better job of this.

One of the things I am MOST excited about this year, that finally after 8 years of buying for The Weed Patch, someone has finally started making a wider selection of country/primitive table cloths, in extra long sizes and in rounds.

As of 2014, one of my favorite companies, Victorian Heart (now called VHC Brands) has start making their table cloths in the following sizes - 40 inch square, 60 inch square, 60 x 80 inch, 60 x 102 inch, 60 x 120 inch, and 70 inch round.  We have been asked over and over, and we've never had any to offer before now!

Here in a small sampling of the selections:

Burlap Black Check Tablecloths:


Burgundy Applique Star Tablecloths:

Burgundy Applique Star Round TableclothL

Tea Cabin Tablecloths:


Burlap Natural Tablecloths:


Multi-Star Navy Tablecloths:


Buffalo Red Check Tablecloths:


Black Applique Star Tablecloths:


See all VHC Brands Tablecloths HERE, and see ALL our Tablecloths HERE.

After receiving so many requests for so long, it is so nice to finally have something to offer you.  These tablecloths offer great value for a great price.  They are all 100% cotton and machine washable.  I own several and wash everything in cold water and dry on a low setting, sometimes hanging it up while still slightly damp to finish drying (but I'm a little over-cautious).  Almost all of them having matching table accessories too, like runners and placemats, as well as window treatments like valances.

If you have any questions at all about what is available, what the colors look like or what there is to match, feel free to visit our retail storefront in Bothell, WA, or our website HERE.  You can also call us at 800-876-5230 (we're open 10 am to 6pm, but remember we are on the west coast!)!
