Home and Hearth- We say BYE to the Beast from the East!

Mar 06 , 2018

What miserable weather we have all been having recently! Whether it was wind, rain or snow- the UK has certainly had a tough time of it.  

Were you out, enjoying a day of sledging on the drifts?

Or did you take the day to relax, preferring to stay warm inside and catch up on some quality TV? 

I think we are all happy to say goodbye to the Beast from the East!
However it does seem that more wind and rain is set to continue across the UK during this week. 

Here at Sheila Maid® we have a selection of products that really make life easier.


Whether it is fireside buckets, boot scrapers to door steps - we have it covered! 

Jutland Fireside Dustpan and Brush

Check out our Jutland Fireside Dustpan and Brush- inspired by Scandinavian design, the mix of materials and colours is a lovely update to metal or plastic alternatives. Combining matt black Steel and FSC Beech, the deep pan will leave the fireplace looking spotless.

The matching long handled brush features Nylon bristles, therefore is designed for sweeping cold ash only.

This pair of accessories could be stored beside the fire or hung up using the circular holes in the handles. The striking juxtaposition of colours would work perfectly in both modern and traditional homes, offering customers style and practicality.
Colour: Matt Black. For indoor use only. Comes tied together with string as a set.
 Did you have the fire on during the cold weather? Having a fireside bucket helps keep fireplace surrounds clean and helps prevent little pieces being tracked through the house! 

Fireside Bucket in Coffee Bean

The Fireside Bucket is a versatile and practical product that we think would fit perfectly next to everyone's fireplace.

The carry handle has a wooden grip for ease of use and carrying. The lid also comes with a matching wooden handle to easily remove when in use, and cover when empty or half full. Its versatility means you can fill it with just about anything, from kindling, to coal and more. 
Dimensions: H30.5 x W32 x D30cm. Crafted in Powder Coated Steel.
Please note, the lid is designed to sit loosely on the bucket.
 Is there anything better than the cosy-ness that a real fire brings? Whether it is an outdoor camp fire or a home log burner - the atmosphere they can create is really special.

However at Sheila Maid®, we believe safety should always come first.

Stovies Stove, Burner and Log gloves

These gorgeous yet ever practical gloves will give protection to your hands when chopping wood, collecting logs or when you are refuelling your fire or wood burner!

Keep them on the hearth ready for use. Stoves get very hot and wearing these stovie gloves will allow you to open the door without burning your hands,
Fabricated in Rustic Suede, there can be a variation in appearance as this is a natural product and this is reflected in the finish of the gloves.
These gloves are large, size 10. Manufactured in the UK


When it is this cold outside, you really want to make sure that your heat is circulating around your home.
Having doors open so that heat is not trapped in one room alone is a good idea. We have the perfect item for this problem! 

Rustic Chunky Door Stop - Reclaimed Timber

Our rustic chunky door stop is the ultimate door stop, it has the presence, the looks and it does the job! A practical, pleasing door stop.

Weighs in at just over 3 kilos.Made from British Beech. It stands at 30cm in height and is 12cm wide.
The wood varies in colour and look, though be assured, you will not be disappointed with this product!

Fitted with a large rustic metal ring; this helps to move it around. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use. A great gift!

One downside to the wetter weather is trying to manoveur taking off long boots. We hate seeing wet footprints and snow dragged through the house! We might have one item that can make the world of difference...

Metal Boot Jack

After long walks customers can be assured even the tightest of wellies can be removed with the Farringdon Boot Jack. Industrial in style, the design features two bobbles at one end and cross wires which provide grip to the underside of the boot.

Metal Boot Jack- Steel

Crafted in Steel with a matt lacquer seal, the metallic grey design reminds us of stag beetle boot jacks yet we've given ours a simplified twist.

Dimensions: H6.5 x W35 x D14.5cm. Crafted in Steel. Welding marks will be visible due to the nature of the material and manufacture

Say goodbye to mess being dragged through the house - sadly we think this little guy might have something to say about that!  
With the way the weather has been- we are all firmly hanging onto our winter coats at Sheila Maid®.  They say Spring is around the corner.
This year the 1st day of Spring is set for the 20th March and we all can't wait to say Hello!
