Rainiest Summer in Maine on Record 2023

It kind of looks like a painting.
And maybe that's why we have tons of artist living on the coast.

Below is how the summer really played out.

A Charming Cape -  You just can't find it.

Again...this would make a great painting.
But who would sail in it? 
Not me.

But this is day to day life this summer in Maine.

We didn't have much of a tourist season as you might imagine.

If you like to Kayak.....

Above represents an almost nice day....You could manage a hike without mud boots.
For me , when I look at this walking path I only see TICKS.  
Yes, there are so many ticks.
I am definitely a city girl.
Plants belong in pots and all streets should be paved,
and next to the paved street should be a concrete sidewalk.
 I just can't help it. I don't like dirt on my shoes.
I don't like living far away from everything.
To pick up a container of milk it's 9 miles there and 9 miles back.
And don't get me started on how long every drive takes.
(Forget getting your Ben & Jerry's home without melting !)

And let's not leave out the beautiful 
but darting deer ...

Early morning & dusk heart attacks for me!!!

I think I would trade all this beauty for an occasional traffic jam.
Let's face it I would actually spend less time driving 
and in the car with a minor back up in traffic.
And I would get my Ice Cream home and it would be just right!👌

I end this post with the fact that Maine is a beautiful place 
with great people.
I just prefer my plants potted.

Just Moved Back To Mid-Coast Maine

I just moved back to Mid-Coast Maine in an area called St. George.
Spruce Head. 
It is a beautiful area.
I came back to be with and care for my Mom.
She needs help now, things can be over whelming when you are 86.

Since I arrived on June 3, 2023 it has rained, been cold and is extremely foggy.
I am not a happy camper.

And now this is where I want to be.

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.

Private Paradise
