Welcome to my blog and shop! Although I’m a “Thrifty Yankee” my life is very rich and fulfilling due to Maine’s many charms. I’m a “Chipmunk Whisperer” and lover of wildlife, New England’s four seasons, the sea, gardening, homemaking and being a steward of my Certified Wildlife Habitat. I also enjoy sharing some of my “Maine Charms” here in the form of blog posts and photos along with goodies you can purchase in my shop.
