A New Giveaway and Maine

The winner of last week's giveaway is: linda@alacarte

This week's giveaway if for a great basket from Stonewall Kitchen in York, Maine. If you haven't checked out their website you should. They have great stuff and I stop there each year on my trip. www.stonewallkitchen.com
The basket includes some items from the store itself and things I picked up here and there along the trip. There is blueberry soap, maple syrup, blueberry jam, dip mix and all kinds of goodies. To enter leave a comment on this post. If you are not already a follower, sign on to follow. The winner will be announced next Saturday!


This is the outside of Stonewall Kitchen.


It is situated in a quaint setting.


They have a wonderful kitchen and you can dine outside.


My favorite license plate.


They sell housewares and garden things too.


And they have the coolest bathrooms.


When we leave Stonewall Kitchen, we head to Ogunquit, Maine. Along the way we saw many places decorated for Fall. This is made from hay rolls.


We always take Teddy to Wells Beach. Hey lady, do you know you have a gull on your roof?


Gulls....they are everywhere.


This is their beach.


They have no fear of humans at all.


I actually think they enjoy using us as poop targets.


I swear they would sit right on your head if you let them.


Teddy loves this beach.


As you can see it is very rocky and treacherous to walk on.


But Teddy is not deterred, she is on a mission.



I've seen this look before.




It is her 'time to roll' look.


Teddy is a roller.


She doesn't just roll, she squiggles in the sand.


Total puppy bliss.


Some dog experts say that dogs roll because they want to take on a new scent.


Then they will not stick out to other animals as a newcomer.


However, this does not explain why she will roll on any towel she comes upon. If I so much as drop a dish towel, down she goes.





And god forbid we come across a dead animal....they are Teddy magnets.


She is pretty much the same with poop.



But there is nowhere she enjoys rolling more than Wells Beach.


And just that quickly she is back up!


And off on her walk.


Except she always stops to see....


just where mama is!


Mama is capturing the Blog Tech capturing me!

Looks like great fun. I'll definitely be adding Stonewalk Kitchen to my list of must see places in main. Teddy's not alone in her desire to roll in anything, my Cheerio is the same. His favorite is Eau de dead skunk. Ewww

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I am so excited I won last weeks giveaway! Thanks so much.

I love to see Teddy rolling on the beach, dead animals and poop, not so much!

Teddy, sweetie, I would do exactly the same thing if I were there, roll around and make a spectacle of myself. Lucky pup! The basket looks amazing!

Robin Larkspur said...

This is why we all love Teddy...she has the most expressive face too. Roll away, Teddy!!! Stonewall Kitchen looks so inviting. Your new giveaway is also very inviting. I will keep my fingers crossed once again!!!

Joane said...

I'll have to get up to Maine one of these days. Count me in for your giveaway! So generous of you!

Congratulations to Linda!
I like that website but I´m not sure about that roasted garlic onion jam :-) :-) :-) It doesn´t sound that nice to be honest :-) :-) The place itself was really nice too!

I do like seagulls :-) I had a friend that had a tame one :-) But I do prefer Jackdaws even if they smell :-)

Teddy is so cute :-) My boys prefer rolling on hog droppings :-) :-) :-)

Have a great day now!
Christer.

Congratulations to the latest winner of "Teddy's Treats"!!

Oh Teddy, she makes my day! Great photo op of Teddy greets the beach!

Went this morning and purchased the goodies for the Cranberry Orange yummy good cake. I will let you know just how good it is.

Someday I hope to have the necessary attachment to download and share a bit of what's going on with me. Soon. :))

Wishing the best of everything to settle in your life and in the lives of those you love!!!

xoxo to Teddy Beach Bunny.

Creepy Glowbugg said...

I think Teddy needs her own blog. So much personality and fuzzy pants to match! LOVE Teddy's adventures!

Beverly@Beverly's Back Porch said...

What is it with doggies and rolling in stinky stuff? Annie and Mazzy can find horse and donkey poop 3 fields away.

More No Knead Bread in the oven!

Lilac Wolf (Angie or Angela) said...

I've always wanted to visit Maine. I am from Bay City, MI and we have a ton of gulls too. This summer I took the boys to my old park and the gulls were practically attacking them for a bite of poptart. I had to keep dancing around the boys making noise.

As for the rolling dog, it also doesn't explain why my dog constantly rolls outside our house and inside, I think it's a happy thing.

Deborah said...

Got my fingers crossed.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful photographs!!

So Teddy likes to take on the scent of that beach and whatever it is you're cooking in the kitchen. Makes sense to me. I'm not going near the poop though.

Debbie said...

Now I know a little sumpin about Maine....seeing how I live here....don't ya know! Ayuh...that's right. It was grand to see Teddy in Teddy Heaven or mud heaven....not sure which it is! What a happy pooch she is and what a lucky lady you are to get to travel so much and have such a wonderful life. Yah....I LOVE New Hampshire's slogan on their license plates too..."Live Free Or Die"....wonderful. Our's is Vacationland....honestly I don't get that at all. That should be Florida I think? Great post!! Great food!

~*~Aria~*~ said...

You go on such fabulous adventures, I love all the lovely pictures.

Teddy looks quite content, rolling in the wet sand. I'd like to join him!

...and did someone say blueberry soap?

Sea Gypsy said...

What a wonderful basket! I've had some jam from Stonewall Kitchen and it was delish!

My old dog Abby was a roller, too, and loved to roll in the sand. She also loved to try and roll on stinky things but luckily her aim was a bit off, so she would stop, sniff the offensive item, and then flop over about a foot away and just roll, roll, roll. We weren't about to point out to her that she had missed her target completely. :)
