Sewing DIY Play Eggs for Easter
With Easter around the corner, I thought I'd share a quick and easy sewing project I completed for our 3 year old granddaughter, Anna.   Anna has a "play kitchen " that she loves so I decided to use up cotton fabric I had on hand to make "play eggs" for it....

Decorating With ... Doorknobs?
I love decorating with found objects, especially if they tell a story.    Lately, I seem to be into doorknobs.     This doorknob, still in a tiny wooden section of its "door", started it all. I spotted it at the Liberty Tool Company . I had no particular us...

5 (Wishful) Signs of Spring in Maine
1. Flowers are blooming. Unfortunately, this Spring it's still so cold that they're either "faux"... or felted.   2. The song birds are back. In my March 11th post about Cardinals, I wondered where the birds were. Well, it's two weeks later and I'm happy to...

Kristen's First Visit to the Nail Salon
Today was a special mother-daughter day for Kristen and I.  It was her first trip to a nail salon for a pedicure and manicure.  I wasn't at all sure how she would do with this new experience so I sat next to her and had my toes done too so she could see tha...

Story
Introduction

I live in coastal Maine and recently retired from a long career in education. My husband, Hank, and I are in the process of downsizing from a big old Maine farmhouse to a cute little red condo in a quiet community near Casco Bay called Applegate. My passions include all things creative: home decorating, organizing, repurposing, sewing, crafting, photography and writing...as well as reading, getting healthy, traveling and camping in our little Casita. I love meeting new people and learning new things. Needless to say, what you'll probably never find me doing is...sitting still.

Searsport Shores is our very favorite campground. We have been staying at Searsport Shores regularly since we first discovered it in 2007. What's not to love? Amazing owners, Astrig & Steve, who treat you like family, organic gardens, goats, honeybees, a beautiful beach full of sea glass and sand dollars, and little trails through the woods with hidden benches and swings in the trees.. There's even an art studio! We especially love coming for Fiber College on the weekend after Labor Day each year. The campground is immaculate and everyone takes pride in it. Highly recommended.
