My Neighbors!
Topic: FAMILY


This is one of SIX of my furry neighbors.  My friend breeds Berners, also known as Bernese Mountain Dogs.

They are pretty big and similar to St. Bernard dogs. They have a very sweet  temperament. This winter I think I will hook them up to a sled. :}

Gnomes from Crystal!
Topic: FAMILY


My daughter Crystal has recently moved, and because she is now four hours away from Lubec it is difficult to see her as often as we would like.

It was a treat to get these three Gnomes in the mail today.

Thanks! :}   MOM

# 23 Original Fur Toys- West Germany
Topic: FAMILY

When I was a little girl in California my mother would go to the bank and would allow me to visit a toy store across the street called ARNIE'S TOYLAND it was owned by a really beautiful lady named Flora. I remember that the store had Mattel toys, but most of my family worked for the company so Barbies and board games didn't appeal to me. Arnie's had large glass display cases with Dollhouses and dolls made by artists and my mother knew that I wanted something from the GLASS DISPLAY ISLE. I woke up one Christmas to find a dollhouse and a mouse family from Arnies Toyland. The mice were made from real fur by a company called Original Fur Toys in West Germany. I don't know what happened to them as I got older, but I do know that the mice are pretty tough to win on Ebay because collectors are bidding on them left and right.
I have always thought of recreating the mice I had  using faux fur. I will have to put it on my to do list. :}

So Very SAD
Topic: FAMILY


Over nine years ago I purchased my first home in Maine that belonged to a widow in the area, her name was  Ruth Hutchinson and she was a local school teacher.
I purchased the home while I was living in Georgia though a fax machine at a local library. I received the faxed image, made an offer and had the closing the same week. I purchased the home SIGHT unseen, because it was truly love at first sight. When I arrived at the home it needed a great deal of work, but the views of the ocean from two sides on all levels was breathtaking. On snowy winter days I used to go up to the attic and write in my diary about how beautiful the Bay looked edged in white snow, and the seagulls would fly by the window at eye level while it snowed.
An opportunity came up to purchase the home I currently live in and I offered this home to my sister (owner finance). She decided not to move to Maine after paying it off, and sold it to a nearby neighbor that swore up and down that he would not tear it down. Today they finished gathering the rubble from a pile that held so many of our family memories. I am told it was torn down because the neighbor that said he would NOT tear it down decided to improve his ocean views and intends to put up a small two car garage structure, maybe a kennel for their dogs. I understand that people have their own ideas and priorities, I live and let live.  I just  can't help recalling some of the holidays and memories that we have had in that home as a family and knowing that we were the last family to enjoy the home is just heart breaking.
