A Gift from Maine

Ah, Maine. The sound of the ocean and the wind whispering through the pine trees. The smells of the sea salt air and the sweet hint of balsam fir in the forest. There are so many things that we cherish about our great state of Maine, and we love to share these things with all of you. Give a gift inspired by this great state with an Embroidered Balsam Pillow or an Embroidered Balsam Tree Ornament made right here in Maine; both are filled with fresh Maine balsam fir needles. This adorable terracotta owl will hold balsam essential oil, made right in Maine. Artist Harry Smith, from Maine, designed the tree ornament and the terracotta owl.
