We’re so lucky to be able to get fresh, locally grown cranberries at Old Gray Beaver Bog…. Christmas Jam, Cranberry Merlot Jam, Cranberry Jalapeño Jam and fresh Cranberry Sauce..done. And even better, now labeled! Thank you early  Santa for my new printer, 🙂 Yeehaw!



You can’t get much more local than this! Maine Port Wine, Maine (Kennebunk) cranberries, our own organic berries and holiday spices.

Made a triple batch of Vintage Garden Berry Christmas Jam this morning. Now that farmers market is done for the season, I’m gearing up for the holiday shows!

Come by and join us for the festive Kennebunkport Christmas Prelude or the wonderful Ogunquit’s Christmas By the Sea.

Come and find the quiet center in the crowded life we lead, find the room for hope to enter, find the frame where we are freed.  Clear the chaos and the clutter, clear our eyes that we can see all the things that really matter, be at peace, and simply be.

Wow, what a busy weekend! The celebration of Christmas Prelude and I finished my last three shows of the year! It was a super sunny day for visitors and shoppers alike.  So I stole away a few moments to take some shots.

I just knew as I was typing my last post….  something was in the air–late  Saturday afternoon that white stuff began to fall.  The timing was so perfect for Santa’s arrival via lobster boat, carolling and the tree lighting.   Looks like we’ll be seeing a white Christmas after all. Now where did I put my hat and mittens?
