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.

I’ve been a collector of sand dollars for as far back as I can remember. All shapes and sizes. All shades of colors, from chocolate brown alive, to slate gray to bleached out white, or ecru in color from the clam flats.  From Maine, to the gulf coast of Florida, to the Carolina’s. In the water, alive… and dead basking along the shores. They’re just treasures to me to find. Mystical, fragile and historical and simply lovely.

But no matter where I’ve collected them… by far my fave spot is out on Goose Rocks. So after our storm blew out to sea yesterday I went on my walk and collected more of my treasures from the sea, until the sun began to rise.

It’s Christmas Prelude here this week and next, and for the first time in ten years, I won’t be peddling my wares… doctors orders 😦 but, last night a dear friend and I wouldn’t miss the tree lighting and caroling to kick off Prelude season. What a fabulous turn out and lovely celebration of the season… the only thing missing was the white stuff.  But you won’t hear me complaining! 🙂  Will you look at all those smart phones snapping away.

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.

Holiday Peace
