Morris & Essex at LL Bean!

I am so excited about packing up a box of goodies bound for the one and only LL Bean today! Keep an eye out for Morris & Essex tea towels and greeting cards at the LL Bean Home store in Freeport!  I have special feelings bout LL Bean - Growing up, my family shopped at Beans every year, even when it was just a little shop with creaky wood floors, on the second floor, upstairs from the Freeport post office. Every family expedition was entirely outfitted with well-worn, vintage LL Bean gear, from heavy waxed canvas backpacks to crinkly parkas...

Summer 2018 Craft Fair Schedule

I am feeling SO very spring-sunshine-y this week, it's glorious! And that's got me thinking about this coming summer craft fair season... yay! I've cut back on my craft fair commitments now that we've got TWO little running, climbing, wild, mischievous and delightful assistants on our little team. It was always a lot of work to pull off a big craft fair when it was just me, but now that we've got two little kids to look after, it's a HUGE undertaking! Someday the kids will be older and they'll be thrilled to spend the occasional weekend away from us and we'll get back to doing more fairs then,...

Introducing our brand-new Natural Birch Wood Ornaments!

I'm so excited to share these brand-new ornaments! They're just finished this week and I think they came out beautifully! We already have them hanging up in our windows at home. They're made in Maine from natural, unfinished birch plywood, custom engraved with my original designs. The light, unfinished wood looks just right against the dark boughs of the pine tree. You can check them out on my website!We also have lots of other beautiful goodies to keep in mind for the coming holiday season (gorgeous hand-printed scarves are so perfect for this time of year!), and will be adding more special new products...
