Fall is here and so are my Fall Cranberry Berry Wreaths. Gorgeous red cranberries and twigs. Love this wreath with the green leaves mixed in for accent color. What goes better with Fall and Thanksgiving than Cranberries! Click here to see this wreath and many others.

I am buying a house! This will be the first home of my own since my divorce 2 years ago and I am so excited to be moving. All my belongings will get to come out of storage and keep me company again! I may be spending a few weeks getting settled but will continue to take orders.

I was so lucky to find this house - located on a dead-end road with only 7 house. Quiet and very low traffic for my kitties and dogs with lots of woods for them to roam in. Not the dogs! I will continue to work in my existing shop for now but hope to get a new shop built next spring.

Also have a new twig wreath to show you! This is a one-of-a-kind. It is made with a birch base twig wreath and has lots of raspberry, blueberry, blackberry artificial berries and green leaves for accent. I love this one. My mom loves it too and I am having a hard time keeping it away from her!

Summer Activities At Mainely Twigs

Hard to believe summer is turning into Fall here in Northern Maine. The cool evenings are upon us and it's great sleeping weather! I love Fall most of all.

Here at Mainely Twigs I am gearing up to start gathering twigs and other natural supplies to fill my storage room. I enjoy this part of my business most of all because I can be out in the beautiful sunny fall days. My two little doggies love it too because it means they can go into the fields with me. I have a miniature beagle (Queenie)and an american eskimo (Jessie). They love running around the fields investigating all the great new smells while I gather my twigs. We always have fun and go home tired!

New Wreaths!
I have added some new wreaths over the summer. You can now get pip berry wreaths! Lots of colors to choose from. I will also be making swags with pip berries. Here is a picture of one made with yellow pip berries.

What I have been up to!

Haven't been here for awhile - spring is pretty busy for me because this is when I cut lots of twigs for my wreaths. Now that leaves are all out I am getting caught up on other things.

Working on some quilts, organizing things. All in all it's restfull work that I enjoy sometimes.

Took my two little doggies to the beauty parlor yesterday for a spring clipping. My little American Eskimo got a major clipping and she is a little uncomfortable with the new cut I think. I love it - discovered she has big ears! She was so hot during the uncomfortable days and will feel great for the summer now.

I have added some new things to Mainely Twigs! More pip berry colors in stock. Mustard, Navy, Burgundy, Mauve, Red are all available. They are availabe in the heart wreath shown here or in a traditional twig wreath. Sorry the pictures are not where they should be!
Well I guess I better get to work today. Wishing you all a blessed day.

Another New Wreath!

Here is another new one! I love designing new wreaths and am always looking for things I can use in my wreath to make them unique. This is a one-of-a-kind wreath that reminds me of the fields of wild strawberries here in Northern Maine! I have spent many happy hours with my mom and sister picking these delicious wild strawberries and this wreath brings back some of those wonderful carefree days spent together. I like the unique oval shape of this wreath. I hope to have more oval designs soon.

New Wreaths!

I have been busy making some new twig wreath designs here at Mainely Twigs this winter. I love them and hope you will too. This is one of them - Sunflowers & Crows nesteled in a pretty Birch twig wreath. I found these sunflowers and just loved them. There are buds and blooms in the wreath and they look so lifelike. I thought a raffia bow fit well with the theme but my green/tan country check bow would also look great in this wreath. The wreath measures approximately 22 inches total diameter. You can see this wreath and others on my website.
