Dream Home for Sale (Woolwich, ME)!

Happy September, everyone!

How happy it makes me, knowing that 
Halloween is just around the corner now...
Before we know it, we'll all be cobwebbing our homes,
scooping out pumpkin guts, and appeasing little ghouls 
and goblins with grab-fulls of candy corn! ♥

So, notice something new around 
I Heart New England?

Well, for one-- I autumn-fied the layout, replacing
the old header with a Tasha Tudor illustration
from her beautiful book, Pumpkin Moonshine.

But that's not really what I wanted to point out...

What truly made me giddy with contentment
after its discovery this morning was that....

We reached 100 followers!

I can't believe how far this little blog of mine
has come since January-- and I just wanted
to thank you all again for your support
and kindness! I don't know what 
I'd do without you guys ♥

I now would like to
present to you the latest  
Dream Home for Sale!

Robert Reed House, c. 1765
(Woolwich, ME)

"Meticulously restored to its authentic character worthy of its original owner, Robert Reed c. 1765. This distinctive colonial offers over 2,800 square feet of living space including four bedrooms and two baths. A myriad of features includes seven fireplaces, beamed ceilings, gorgeous pine floors and paneling, a stone patio off the kitchen and a detached barn. 
In the 1930’s, Pulitzer Prize winning author and poet Robert P. Tristram Coffin resided here while writing his book, Kennebec, Cradle of Americans. Coffin fondly wrote of the house, 'A fireplace in every room wide enough to take a family of twelve into its warm arms, bedrooms above also with fireplaces and paneled in pine cut on the farm, all golden brown and velvety from the sunshine and use of many years.'"

  7. Hello dear Erin,

    I loved your comment on my posting today. No, YOU CAN'T ever predict Mother Nature.

    I will post colorful photos of our Maine autumn when we return from Beatrix Potter's village. We're going in mid-September for me to do some investigating for my new book project.

    Sending fond wishes for autumn breezes. Hey, I have a signed copy of Pumpkin Moonshine in a brown and gold leather binding. Given to me by a reader.

  12. Hi. Thanks for visiting. I appreciate all your comments. Love this saltbox! {of course!}. Over the next few days I think I'll have time to read all about your New England adventures. I know when I get started, I'll be here awhile. What were your favorite places and why? We are still hoping to go at the end of September; hopefully to see some fall but not be in the middle of all the tourists at peak season.
