It’s a Huckleberry Finn sort of thing… It’s so much fun to do Spring chores…wouldn’t you like to enjoy some free camping in exchange for help with our to do list? Everyone is welcome to share…paint, build, rake, tend the fires, cook, organize and celebrate our wonderful community! For our 29th annual Ship Shape Weekend…we’re changing it up and expanding our plans to fill a whole week.  If time is tight, just… Read More

The best piece of advice I heard in 2022, while working in the studio, was from the 10% Happier Podcast: Stop and recognize happy moments when you’re in the middle of them. Literally stop and say out loud, “This is a happy time.” It’s a way to ground yourself in the joyful parts of your life. I love this! How many times have I muttered myself, “grrrrr” (or worse but why share?)… Read More

As we slide into the end of August and Labor Day draws near, we’re hanging onto the last of the true summer days vigorously. The weather is still warm and the nights are getting a little cooler, creating the perfect time for one last getaway.

I can’t believe how long it’s been since I visited our poor neglected blog…I’m making a new pledge to give it more attention as life settles into a more “normal” rhythm. What more perfect way than to share a videos of the flawless blanket of snow that covered us over the weekend? It’s 30 seconds of “nothing special”…just Penobscot Bay as it sparkles! Our little bubble of a world has been relaxed… Read More

When the clocks spring ahead, it’s time to start gathering up the winter projects that have filled all the corners of the house, workshop and studio and start accessing them with a critical eye…can I get this done in a few hours? is it worth the stress of a deadline to leave it (knitting, carving, painting project) in full view so that I… Read More

April melted into a memory quicker than it ever should. May is following along the same path. We haven’t suffered the dramatic weather that we’ve seen in other parts of the country but I think in 45 days, we’ve had 6 without rain. Cold, gloomy and punishing if you want to get outdoor chores accomplished. A perfect excuse to work in front of the computer and play in the studio if that’s… Read More

What’s the best way to celebrate the summer on the Maine coast? With butter dripping down your chin and wood smoke drifting through the air as the seafood steams in its bed of freshly harvested seaweed. Add a layer of scent coming from the homemade bread hot out of the oven and brought directly to your table. Oh, and don’t forget the boiled Maine corn on the cob and roasted onions that… Read More

It’s been a beautifully warm and dry spring.  In the past couple of weeks we’ve hosted many more guests than we usually see before Memorial Day Weekend. Some years I cringe at the thought of sharing our muddy roads and cold fog with people who have traveled so far to be with us; but this year, the flowers are huge, the grounds are ahead of schedule (thanks to the weather and the… Read More

Now’s the time when the reservations start flooding our world…the sun is shining, the tents and RV’s are begging to be opened up and aired out.  In the Spring, most of my morning and evening work hours are spent in front of the computer, answering e-mails, returning phone calls and booking sites.   This is my 23rd summer of this responsibility and I take it as seriously now as I did before… Read More

The roads are soft, the air is soft, the plants are greening and the flock is begging to graze in the campground…The days are getting longer and we’ve finally been able to spend more time outside…and we’ve noticed:
