Mount Vernon, Maine
I'm a fifth generation Mainer. My husband's family are Mainers as well. We and our two grown sons have lived here all our lives. What I love about Maine is …everything! The changing seasons, the landscape, the access to the mountains, ocean, fields and forests, lakes and rivers, and the culture. There's just so much to see and do here all year round!
My husband and I were up to Greenville a few years ago fly fishing, and I happened into Becky's new shop. We got into a conversation about this pretty dragonfly necklace that another artist had on display. I said, "A dragonfly! That's the logo on my candles!"
She said, "Oh, candles? I don't have candles in here, and I'm kind of allergic to them."
"Mine are soy candles," I said. "They're very eco-friendly, and I use an all-cotton wick that makes them very clean burning."
Becky said, "I want to see them!" And so that's how I got my connection with Gallery on the Lake.
I love to create scents that bring me back to places I have traveled, and I know other people do too! So when I create scents for Greenville and the Moosehead Lake area I want some that make people think of the North Maine woods or of the fishing trip they had, beautiful Moosehead Lake, or the cabin they stayed in. So my scents are geared towards the memories of this unique and special place that people want to share with others!
Oh, and by the way, I bought that pretty dragonfly necklace to remind me of Greenville and the Gallery!
What's the Rest of the Story?
Both my great-grandfathers had jobs that were very authentically Maine. Can you guess what?
To get the rest of the story, ask Becky at Gallery on the Lake!
