About Me

Hello everyone..I'm a 47 year old small town girl from central Maine which is a wonderful place to live. I've raised two children who are grown and my fiance and I own the house I grew up in. His son lives w/ us and he's seventeen.
We have 5 acres of land that I love to garden in Maine's short summer. I spend winters cooking comfort food and oil painting, basket weaving and cross country skiing...around here we try to embrace the long Maine winters, to avoid cabin fever.
I work full time in a hospital emergency room as a housekeeper...and I'm a clean freak and am always on the look out for short cuts to make less work for me.
We do the work in our home ourselves, to save money ...but also b/c we like the gratification it gives us. I love antiques. I also like to experiment w/ faux finishes and techniques for refinishing wood furniture.
I love the out doors and like to bring that inside any chance I can. I like muted colors and rustic furnishings and wall art.
We also enjoy backpacking the local mountains, camping and kayaking, we like to go for long rides and look at old houses and dream about having a wonderful old home to fix up, like the farm house pictured in my profile.
When I'm alone and puttering around the house I leave the TV on HGTV, my future step son even knows to switch it back when he finishes watching his shows.
I love the comments people leave, either positive or negative..I take what I want and leave the rest... Happy decorating everyone and see ya soon!!!...~Carol~

Made in the shade, these Photos were taken in June when the lupine were blooming Here in Maine the lupine starts to bloom around June just after the Daffodils and tulips go by, the lupine are not part of the shade garden but I thought it good to know when thing bloom at the same time ...Like the Poppys and anenomes and single peonies and Vibunum...Some of the things  photographed are not for the shade and I have marked them  with an *, Gardens Design
