Portland, ME, November 03, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The northern cardinal is the state bird of seven states and one of the most easily recognizable, and most conspicuous, songbirds. The males feature bold red plumage from head to toe while the females are more muted in color with deep red tones and brown highlights. Sturbridge Yankee Workshop highlights these features on two of their hand-hooked wool pillows. On the long hooked wool pillow (http://www.sturbridgeyankee.com/cardinal-long-hooked-wool-pillow.html?utm_source=prarticle&utm_medium=pressrelease&utm_campaign=hol13), four male cardinals huddle together on a holly branch with a soft blue-gray background. The tall cardinal pillow features a lone cardinal, standing out against a cream colored background. Sturbridge is currently offering free shipping on both of these pillows, through December 26, 2013.
Cardinals prefer open woodland habitats, like dense forests and shrubby areas near overgrown fields, marshy thickets, and ornamental landscaping. They perch on fairly high places when singing their cheerful tunes and feeding on insects, seeds and fruit. Crafted from recycled steel, and made in Maine where cardinals are seen in increasing numbers, the Holiday Bell and Cardinal Bracket (http://www.sturbridgeyankee.com/cardinal-bracket.html?utm_source=prarticle&utm_medium=pressrelease&utm_campaign=hol13) combination at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop will sing its very own sweet song. Powder coated for outdoor exposure, and bright red in color with a cardinal shaped piece of metal on the bracket, this bell displays the word “peace” on a diamond shaped piece dangling from the bell. Both items are made in Maine and will offer woodland charm to a front porch.
Cardinals will join together in pairs for the winter, just as these two have done on the Sturbridge Cardinal Print. American-made, with vivid and realistic artwork by artist Donna Race, this print has a textured finish that resembles an oil painting. This print grabs attention and keeps it; display this print in an entryway to greet the season each year. Cardinal pairs will commonly nest and forage near backyard bird feeder. In fact, the increased number of bird watchers adding cardinal friendly feed to their yards has been attributed for the success of cardinal populations lasting through the winter months. On the Winter Cardinal Hot Pad at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, a deep red cardinal poses in a winter garden with rose hips and holly berries galore. The hot pad is made in America, and features real spices on the inside for a relaxing, aromatic experience.
Even if there are no cardinals around, gather them together with the lighted jars (http://www.sturbridgeyankee.com/cardinal-glass-lighted-jars-set.html?utm_source=prarticle&utm_medium=pressrelease&utm_campaign=hol13) available at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. The crackled glass features painted imagery of winter scenes with cardinals perched on the highest branches. On the tall glass light, a pretty perched cardinal looks into the distance while Christmas lights and faux white-colored greenery fill the inside and reflect warm light off of the crackled glass, reading “Wishing you quiet pleasures and loving memories.” Set of two cardinal glass jars feature a sleepy country village with tall leafless trees revealing the location of the feathered friends perched on the branches. Both lighted accents are available now with free shipping at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.
