Our second yard sale of the year is October 10th and 11th. ( I hope that is right.) We will be having in store specials too. Come on over I have been all week trying to get things together to put out in the sale.

I just want it to hit me. You know when you hear it, it should just be one of those things that you go..... Oh yeah, lets do that. So fess up people and help me out.

Maine's Own Forgotten Fairies

Denise was up until the wee hours last night putting the finishing touches on these wonderful "Forgotten Fairies".

Truly they are wonderful, especially the one that she did for me to give to Lorrie. It is of Megan and Cody and I wish I had one myself. Here is a picture of it.
If you click on the pictures you can really check them out. Megan and Cody were young when we took these. Lorrie and I use to dress them up and take their pictures, I don't think they were always thrilled but usually they were good sports about it. The story on the back of each one of her fairies makes you fall in love with them even more. She is such an amazingly talented lady. You can check out the rest of them on facebook under the Silkweeds page or Lisa Sanborn-Gray

Glass Orchids

Nancy & Greg Tang are wonderful people. They left a hectic life to move to Maine and to do something they had a passion for. That passion shines through in all the dichroic glass creations that come out of their studio. They truly are unbelievable pieces that everyone can't wait to own. We carry quite a few of thier pieces. They make everything from necklaces, to earrings, barretts, magnets, pins, one of a kinds and so much more. To be so talented, well I could only hope for that, but to be fortunate to have their things in my store, I am that .... indeed. Here are a few pictures of what we carry. You can also find them @
Click on the pictures to see them close up. Enjoy and take a trip over to their website and check out a great USA (Maine) Made product.

Fall, Fall and More Fall

Happy Wednesday Everyone,
If you haven't already you should go to and sign up for our monthly newsletter. There is a 40% off coupon on the bottom of it.

Fall, wow, I hate to think of it, but I can tell you that yesterday as I started putting out fall, this is my favorite time of the year to decorate for. I just love the warm colors of fall. So here are a few pictures to show you what we have done so far.

I took Monday off and Denise got this display done, it is so cute. If you make the picture bigger you can see the rats better. They are so adorable. I know that sounds funny, but they are.

The Mantle needed a new picture and some different candlesticks over it. So after I fixed that, I added a few things to the display that Denise had started there. She had it looking great, she just ran out of time..... I know how that goes.
Here are a few more, pictures, I added a close up of the rat.

So there are about 12 more boxes of fall that need to be put out so I will get at that today. Let's see how much of a dent I can put into the pile.
If you get time, come on over and check it all out. This is when I think the store is the nicest, the colors just seem to make me feel good, maybe it will do the same for you. Have a great day and remember "It's Always Worth The Trip @ Silkweeds".

Happy Monday

Sorry for the absence, it has gotten busier at the store and I sometimes feel like a one armed paper hanger. I promise to be back this week with pictures of all the new stuff. I am decortating for fall this week, so there will be lots to see. Have a great day and remember "It's Always Worth The Trip @ Silkweeds."

Maine Pursenalities

First things first.............. One big black bird means heart failure if not noticed in time........ I took yesterday off, I don't get many days off lately and I am fortunate that my friend Denise or my mom fills in for me. Denise happened to work yesterday and Avis had worked on Saturday. Avis left Denise a present before we left work Saturday Night, with a little message on it. I found it, on my cash register this morning when I got to work. It jumped the begeezes out of me. So I think Denise must have snickered all night just waiting for the morning. What she had to worry about is where he might show up next. HaHa

On a slightly lighter note, Look at just how talented Denise is, She has been knitting, felting and even hand felting so much. She redid the front display yesterday with some of her new work. Check it out. It is beautiful and so very unique. Sometimes it is just nice to get something for yourself or someone you love that is hand made, right here in Maine.
Enjoy a little look at some fabulous work by a unique and wonderful woman.

The blue one with the daisy's is wonderful and is my favorite, but to small for me. So I think I will have to opt for the yellow one at the top of the display. I love yellow, it makes me feel sunny and bright, even on a day like today. Oh and check out the bowls, they are so cute.
Remember that "It is Always Worth The Trip @ Silkweeds"

Rhonda has been at it again

Check out this mirror that Rhonda made. It is the cutest and the spoon on the left hand side could be used as a towel holder. She is so talented.
Tomorrow I will take pictures of the Gazebo and the menu. So that you can all be tempted with that.

The happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have.
