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.
