AirBnB in Bowdoinham, Maine..

It's rainy and gray outside, so I'm enjoying this bit of sunshine on my kitchen counter-
some sunny sunflowers and the cozy glow of candlelight.
If you gave me a gorgeous crystal vase, I honestly wouldn't know what to do with it. Give me an antique jar, milk bottle or a piece of old earthenware, ironstone, or hob nail milk glass and I'll be much more pleased. This milk bottle is not an antique, but is a sweet momento of my 60th birthday trip to Maine.

(See the photo journey of that trip in these posts-

Our AirBnB in Bowdoinham, Maine had the sweetest hosts. The kitchen was stocked with healthy, organic food for us and this bottle full of fresh milk. I asked if I could purchase the bottle, but our hosts insisted I just take it.

The AirBnB was located inside a newer barn style building next to the owner's old farmhouse. Inside was a two story apartment with a kitchen, dining room, living room and bathroom. On the second level was another bathroom, a loft area with a bed, another bedroom, then a large room/dance studio in which the hosts placed two more beds. The setting was beautiful with woods behind us and the owner's flower and organic vegetable gardens around us.

All ingredients for the meal were purchased at the Bowdoinham Farmer's Market.)

  1. Your photos are gorgeous! The AirBnB looks like the perfect place to stay and I love the milk bottle with the sunflowers in it is such a bright spot on a gray and rainy day.

  2. Lovely photos - such nice decorative touches throughout.
    Thanks for sharing at

  3. What a charming place to stay. I am not sure I would want to go anywhere else.

    1. Maine is too irresistible to not explore it, though!

  4. What a unique place to stay...sounds lovely and the pictures you found to take, I really like. The one of the kids on the vase made me smile. Can just imagine children joy if they were doing that and having a fun, silly time.

    Love the milk jug vase.
