I think it is interesting that sometimes I need to see a photo of a room before I can figure out what it needs standing in it live. Drapes going up in Room 8!

Danforth, favorite B&B in Maine

Yay!!! woke up to emails this morning telling me that Danforth was in the Maine Sunday Telegram as the Features Staff's favorite B&B in Maine. SO appreciative. Validation for lots of hard work is always amazing.

I don't know what my next project is but I already have some of the inspiration pieces collected....

Love of Animals

As long as people will shed the blood of innocent creatures there can be no peace, no liberty, no harmony between people. Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together.—Isaac Bashevis Singer, writer and Nobel laureate (1902–1991)

Ravenscleft in Seal Harbor

Really thrilled with the amount of hits Ravenscleft is getting at AOL is picking it up as House of the Day too!

This is the view that RIPS my heart out - I'm choked up just looking at it. I wish Ava could come with me every moment of every day and breaks my heart when she jumps in the window of the guest room and watches me leave. Ughhhhh..... I know sometimes she is happier at home than she would be running around with me - though most times that is preferable.

I love our babies this year - they are not scared of Ava or me - Ava just irritates them.

More yellow umbrellas...

Rare, but nice to take some time to go for a drink and dinner with friends. Tonight, it was under the yellow umbrellas at the Bar Harbor Inn Terrace.

Facebook Wisdom - so true.

The most powerful tool you have to change your brain and your health, is your fork.


My new buddy, Pip, has NO fear of the cliffs in front of his house in Seal Harbor. So sweet, he is a rescue from New Zealand after the earthquake and is SO appreciative. I guess compared to that craziness, this cliff peeking is nothing.

"Pooh," he whispered. "Yes, Piglet?" "Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw, "I just wanted to be sure of you."”

July 5th Fireworks

As much as I hate being away from Ava, probably good that she isn't in Boothbay with me tonight - two nights of trying to bite the fireworks may have been too much. We could only hear Bar Harbor's last night, these are right from the beach at Smugglers Cove.
