Sorta Kinda not happy about not being a Mermaid

Nantucket Beach

Being a land locked water baby is hard.  That is one of the biggest things I miss about the coast of Virginia and North Carolina.  Atlanta has its own offerings, but not as exciting as the more northern sister states.

I do wonder what kind of magical life it would be like to live in the ocean.  Just think of all the creatures big and small that you could be in awe with.  How wonderful it would be to glide though the ocean and seeing formations and sunken treasures not seen by anyone in centuries.

Even though I love the beach, I cannot imagine what it would have been like to have worn woolen clothing and to have been hauled into the ocean via a bath house.  I think just getting dressed to go into the water would have worn me out.

I do hope you are having a wonderful 4th and I leave you with a few more coastal images.  Close your eyes and if you listen very hard you can hear the methodical rhythm of the ocean lapping at the sands of the coast.

As always, thank you for sharing your time and support.  I hope that have enjoyed perusing through my nautical designs.



  1. Those are fabulous (says the girl who is crazy about mermaids and sea lore)!!

  2. Loved it too (says the girl who lives in IL but spent 5 years in Hawaii and also misses the ocean)!

  3. I live on Long Island near the ocean and almost never go. I like walking the boardwalk at night, but I don't like the sun and sand during the day. Go figure. I really love your mermaids.

    1. I am envious!!!I do like the beach at night. I really do love it in the fall and winter too. Thank you for the compliment.

  4. Where can I find the pattern for Nantucket strawberries?
