Cleaning out old sheets and blankets you no longer want to use?

Donate them to your local animal shelter!

Most shelters will accept old blankets, bath towels, sheets and and t-shirts. Shelters use these for lining pet cages, cleaning up messes, drying off wet animals, providing warm bedding, and covering kennel doors when pets need a rest from the light. Most shelters are under-served so any extra help is greatly appreciated.

Berkshire Blanket regularly donates to local shelters and organizations, including APAW, American Poodles at Work.

Help keep our fuzzy friends warm while they are waiting to be adopted!

Hot European Decor Trends

Last month we exhibited at the Maison&Objet trade show in Paris. It was a great show, despite some snowy weather. In addition to showing some new products and colors geared toward the European market, I also had the opportunity to walk most of the halls and spotted some new, ongoing and surprising  trends in color and motifs.

Here are just a few that caught my eye…


Butterflies, both mature and playful.


Nautical – Coral, Shells, Stripes, and Fish


Yellow and Grey


Underwater paradise


Checkers galore


Bold Florals


Black and white chandelier


Skulls…so hardcore!


Making a bold, colorful statement.


More fun butterfly decor!


Oceanside elegance with a pop of color.

Now that I’ve had a chance to see the Euro trends, I am looking forward to see how these are interpreted here in the US.

What to do with your Christmas tree the rest of the year?

Year round Christmas tree ideas

I love the sight of my Christmas tree.The New Year is rung in with warm toasty wishes and the sparkly lights and decorations still up. But sadly, a few the days later the Christmas trees and their cheerful decorations are boxed up not to be seen again for another 340 days! This year I am going to use one of my trees all year to keep the festivities alive. 

February I can adorn my tree with red hearts.

March rolls in and the green shamrocks will be shown.

April will display yellow candy peeps.

May & June I will have a flower garden.

July I will show my patriotic pride.

August & September sunflowers will steal the show.

October will be a tree filled with black cats and bat.

November pumpkins are the perfect fall touch.

Will you try out the year-round holiday bush? Can you think of other themes? I want to hear them!
