"Oh Honey, It's Almost Fall" Etsy Treasury

Three of my items in my Etsy Shop have been included in a Treasury.  It is such an honor to have just one item in a Treasury but I have three.  Thank you, designloveshare, for including me in your Treasury. 

Be sure to visit her Treasury "Oh Honey, It's Almost Fall" at  It includes many lovely items.

The Perfect Gift

Looking for that perfect gift? In today's economy everyone is looking for that perfect gift that's not too expensive;  something that will be appreciated and used. Everyone uses a coffee mug whether for coffee or tea or soup or any other beverage.  Mugs get used by everyone.  My mug and coaster sets are beautiful and make great gifts and best of all they are affordable.  So visit my shop and check out my collection.  More sets are going to be added.  If you see a coaster that does not have a mug contact me; any of my coasters can be made into mug/coaster sets.

The Mystery of Lighthouses

Lighthouses fascinate me.  They are not only beautiful but they have some great stories that go along with them.  I love the Nubble Light located in Maine.  There's not a summer that goes by that my family and I don't visit it.  This last time I took more pictures of the Nubble (not that I don't already have enough) and I was inspired to do something special with the photo.  That's when the idea of making art tiles popped into my head.  I then started looking at all the lighthouses in Maine to make a collection.  I also decided not to make coasters but to make the tiles to display either on an easel or plate hanger.  I also wanted to put a brief history of each lighthouse on the back of the tile.  I then started to research each one's history. 

The Nubble Light was built after the shipwreck of the Isidore off the coast of Cape Neddick. All 16 men on board died and according to legend the Isidore reappears as a ghost ship along with its crew. 

One of the keepers had a 20 pound cat that would swim across the canal to the mainland to hunt rodents. 

Every lighthouse has interesting stories, some gruesome and some haunting.  Follow my blog for more stories and updates on the Lighthouse Tile Collection.

Lighthouses of Maine

Oh how I love the coast of Maine.  A recent visit to Maine inspired me to created art tiles of Maine's lighthouses.  A brief history of each lighthouse will also be included along with an easel for displaying your tile.  Collect them all.  Here is a preview of what to expect.  This is an original photo of the Cape Neddick Lighthouse, also known as The Nubble Light.  It is located in York, Maine.  Follow my blog for all the latest updates.
