OUR MAINE HOUSE KITCHEN...A LOOK BACK AT WINTER


We are often asked what it was like when we lived in Maine.
Two southerners moving from Texas
up to a small New England village 
right smack dab in the beginning of Winter.
This was the entrance to our neighborhood.


We had chosen our home during October.
We moved the week before Christmas.
I fell instantly in love with our Maine House.
It was a big colonial style home with
beautiful light and perfect coastal colors.
This was my kitchen and I absolutely loved it.


Our views out the kitchen window were often magical...
squirrels, wild turkeys, deer, raccoons, mallard ducks, fox
and
a nighttime visit from a Moose!


I remember the very day this picture was taken
We were heading back to Texas
and 
setting the stage for the "showing."


It was Christmas when our house went on the market.
We worried about trying to sell our home
during the winter months.


I loved the tile backsplash! 


Those are my two little Moose on the windowsill....
I must remember to look for those...
I haven't seen them since we moved back home.

on a January night.


Mae was watching the snow fall.
She must miss this....
all her woodland friends...
especially Mr. Jimmy.
We did indeed make memories.

  7. Well do come back one day! I want you to know that Maine skated on the latest storm Jonas or whatever the name. The lost moose made me chuckle. There are so many things that I haven't seen since my last move over twenty years ago.

  9. Hi Estelle! My fiance loves your pictures. Your cat is cute. My fiance thinks your kitchen was very inviting and roomy. Memories always stay with us no matter what ever happens. I bet it was magical seeing all those wild animals outside your windows. Have a great and magical day!
