Vintage Sugarloaf Window

We were honored to be a part of this year’s Sugarloaf Charity Summit. Benefits went to the Martha B. Webber Breast Cancer Center and the Maine Cancer Foundation. This was a fun project to work on. The retro graphic is etched onto an 30″x 18″ inch glass window. We hope you like it!

A Little Something for Someone Special

Our latest project was one that is very near and dear to my heart. The story behind this necklace has great meaning to my family.

The necklace was given to my mother whose birthday was last week. She is the most remarkable and resilient person I know; a two-time breast cancer survivor who has been battling this disease for many years now. The word “hope” comes from letters my younger sister kept while she was going to summer camp during her childhood. The letters were between her and my mom and had subject matter only young girls and their mother’s could understand. About a year ago, my sister found those letters and read all of them. She went to a tattoo shop and had the word “hope” tattooed onto her forearm.

The rock has meaning as well.  It is a heart rock that my father found on Cliff Island in Casco Bay. My family has had a summer cottage on Cliff for over 90 years. During our childhood we would scour the rocky beach for treasures like sea glass and heart rocks.

My father approached me with the heart rock and asked if this could be one of my first projects as a new business. I etched the rock with “hope” on the front of the rock and “family” on the back. I couldn’t be happier to do something for someone I love and admire. Big thanks to D. Cole Jeweler (www.dcolejewelers.com) for doing such an amazing job with the casing.

My mother’s fight is something many families can relate to. My family has collaborated with Maine Cancer Foundation to raise money and awareness for cancer research in Maine. To learn more, please visit the link: http://mainecancer.org/news/challenge

Building Out the Space

Now for the fun part! I’ve always been a believer that when you build something from scratch, it instantly becomes special. I explored the Internet looking for a worktable and cabinets for our space and quickly realized this was something I was going to need to build. After several trips to Lowes, Rockler’s, and Home Depot construction began.
