Crawfish, Crick-ettes & Soft Baby Chickens...

Hello Lovelies~

I hope you are doing well out there as usual! Things here are heating right up. Literally. Maine has had some pretty hot weather lately and I love it. Summers in Maine are kind of the best ever. Where to start?

First, another reminder, I am donating a piece to the Ronald McDonald House's Purses with Purpose Fundraiser. I just dropped it off as a matter of fact! An 8 x 10 print of my Sea Fence photo, matted and framed in a bright white, contemporary 11 x 14 frame. Perfect for that summer home or living room. Plus, do I need to say it's for a good cause again? If you're local, it's Thursday, click the link for details on how you can help!

What else? Oh, my S'mores piece has been featured on Motorland Vintage America's summer brochure at their gallery and car showroom! If you recall, I did a Vacationland shoot for their space last fall and decided to do a couple of conceptual shots there at the end involving... a Yeti. Oh, yes. Well, the owner felt that nothing said Maine Summer like a Yeti attack. Lucky me! Take a look. I will be working with the fine folks at Motorland again this summer on various projects. What a great group of men.

Well, Father's Day is right around the corner, and that's sort of a big deal over at STAG. Needless to say, I have been beefing the shop up with great items just for the special man in your life. Plus, June 12th is STAG's first anniversary! So, I decided a celebration was in order. June 16th, I am having a storewide sale just for you: 15% off when you enter "Father" as the coupon code when you check out. Get Dad the very best: Get STAG Vintage!

Well, it's not all work and no play over here, fear not! Some very good friends decided to throw a "bug party BBQ" this past weekend to kick off summer. What is that, you ask? Well, they ordered Crick-ettes (dried crickets) and made those available for eating(!!!) along with an entire selection of Bloody Mary mixes and of course, normal food. Like those beautiful crawfish. I haven't had crawfish since I moved from Missouri. (Needless to say Mainers eat lobster.) But they were very good. It was such fun. Plus, I got to hold a baby chicken and kiss its soft, fuzzy head which sort of made my night. If this party was any indication, this summer will be a very good one.

Until next time: unpleasant dreams...
