A Fairy Lobster!
If you're lucky enough to live in Maine, is there any other type of fairy? Fortunately, she's way to cute to become an ingredient for . . . . .
Along the way, we spent a gorgeous Maine morning at the Cape Neddick Lighthouse in York, Me. This picturesque lighthouse was built in 1879 and is one of 63 lighthouses along Maine's 5,000 mile coast.
After a leisurely morning of driving to the beautiful mid-coast town of Damariscotta, we had lunch at King Eiders Pub, a lovely historic tavern (over 100+ years old), followed by a shopping and picture-taking excursion around town.

Damariscotta is a sweet little town filled with lots of pretty shops. I couldn't resist snapping a few pics of the local color.

A few pretty posies!
We also paid a quick visit to one of my daughter's favorite shops, Damariscotta Pottery. This artistic handmade pottery is recognized by it's creative, elegant, colorful and joyful designs.

A Mug and . . .
A Whole Lot More!
Since one of the predominant colors in today's post is blue, I've got to share these unique swings. My daughter's talented friend, Sarah, has been sewing all through the winter and spring, and has finally opened her own shop in Brunswick. I just love her new space!
Just two more pictures, and I promise you that I'm finished for the day. Whenever someone mentions Maine, thoughts generally turn to lighthouses, the rocky coast and lobsters. My thoughts of Maine are of gorgeous old farms, weathered out buildings, rolling emerald green hills and dewy fields. My thoughts are also filled with that beautiful ephemeral fog that lovingly caresses the morning.

May your day be filled with color and light!
