The Way We Roll

Steve caught a Florida Pompano!

Great neon yellow detail.

This catch is a little larger! It almost got the best of the fisherman! He was a Sand Trout.

In the mean time she uses salt water to clean her water color brushes.

Our special place in time, now, back to business.

Nautical Haul

I looked everywhere for lanterns.

I found some glass net floats.

Every float has it's own, "signature" knot.

These two floats are humongous. Perfect for a center piece.

This is a nice size lantern, very nice!

This pair should be painted up and electrified. 
His and Hers! Mostly his because she can't lift hers!!

Life rings, hemp line and bumpers, megaphones and portholes.
I love the two anchors. Have a nice evening.

North Carolina Fabric Run

Forty eight new fabric swatches to add to our collection, here, at Anchor Cottage.

Then, I went remnant shopping! Interesting that there were not a lot of blues available.

I like the black and white collection.

This fabric and trim I am using for pillows on the "Blue Bell Cottage" sofa.

I bought this printed silk with Jackie R in mind!


Happy and light.

I have a little less than nine yards of this fabric. It needs pink cording and pillows to make it dance.

The reds look cozy for the season.

Walking on my wild side!

Sweet and pretty.

The green family was plentiful.

Yards of fabrics on bolts. 

This is who uses the guest bedroom when I'm in town. Laugh out loud, wake up, time for a photo shoot!
