Fathers come in many forms. Sometimes there’s a special grandfather, uncle, brother, godfather, friend, or mentor we want to thank for being part of our lives. Choose a Words of Wisdom Ornament to reflect your “Dad’s” personality, or a Sports & Hobby Ornament, with his name and year on it, that captures the fun you’ve had together.
A Grandfather's love will never grow old, he's a tower of strength with a heart of gold.

Did you know the traditional gift for a 5th anniversary is wood? One of our Handcrafted Wooden Ornaments would be a unique way to commemorate the occasion. You can tell if an ornament is made of wood, or some other media, by reading its description under the picture of it on our Website’s product page. On that same page, you can type your names, title, and year for personalization, and see their location on your ornament. Wedding

Samantha is a graduate, too. After being rescued from a shelter, Samantha needed to go to obedience school to become a well-adjusted member of the family. Of course, she passed with flying colors, as she is a very intelligent and loving dog. She remembers all her commands, and responds to them as instructed. She answers questions well too, especially if they contain the words “walk,” “eat,” or “Frisbee.” Samantha can even tell what time it is. A long stare and a whine reminds you it’s mealtime, in case you’ve forgotten.

While Mom is Sam’s “trainer”, Dad is her playmate. Samantha loves being outdoors, playing Frisbee with her Dad, or just exploring on her own in a field of dandelions.

"Wow, I am surprised that I had placed my order Monday night at 9:00pm and this morning when I arrived home from dropping my son at school my ornaments were here. They are wonderful and just as I had asked. I was a little worried about ordering them over the internet and you being able to understand how I wanted them to look but they are perfect! Missy from NH. "I just received my ornaments today. I ordered three and all were very different. They were more than I expected. Absolutely beautiful and the service was quicker than I expected also. I am delighted to have discovered your site and will make this a yearly tradition." Alana from Canada
"I really enjoy seeing pictures and hearing about Samantha. Our yellow lab, Lacey, died two years ago and I'll always miss her. Seeing pictures and stories about your dog makes me smile - dogs are wonderful! Thank you." Janice from PA


May is a wonderful month on Mount Desert Island with more springtime greening and blossoming every day. Daytime temperatures have been seasonably comfortable in the 60’s, with an occasional summer-like day in the high 70’s. We look forward to June for the start of our busy summer season. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are expecting 2 million visitors this year, including 96 visits by cruise ship passengers and crew. Virtually every major cruise ship company will pull into our harbor, including the maiden voyage by the Cunard Line’s Queen Victoria on September 30. Our first cruise ship visit was on May 14 by Holland America’s Maasdam, and our last one is on November 1 by the Cunard Line’s Queen Mary 2.

Of course most Bar Harbor’s visitors come by car, and this coming weekend will be one no car enthusiast will want to miss. From May 28 – 31st, over 100 Corvettes from across Maine, New England, and neighboring Canadian provinces will rumble into Bar Harbor and be on display. It’s called “Margaritas in Barharborville.” For more information, visit

Throughout our busy tourist season, “Friends of Acadia” volunteers maintain park resources so visitors, coming by car or cruise ship, will enjoy its awesome beauty. Last year, more than 2,500 volunteers contributed over 12,000 hours cleaning drainage along carriage roads to reduce erosion, re-opening and maintaining hiking trails and vistas, and constructing new village connector trails for serious hikers. Come and enjoy our island!
