We love wicker and we especially love vintage wicker. Here are two examples of great old wicker that has been freshly painted and new pillows. It is truly amazing what a coat of fresh paint can do!
I’m in Atlanta attending the SITE SE chapter annual fundraiser for Wine to Water. wine to waterThis non profit was created by a Normal everyday North Carolina bartender and builds wells all over the world in countries that are in disparate need for fresh water. Mermaid cottages always donates a stay and Paula Deen ( who has to be one of the most generous women in the world) donated an autographed cookbook and goodie basket for the silent auction. Tonight’s “southern supper” fundraiser will raise thousands of dollars for Doc to build more wells
I’m staying with a Tybee friend who also lives in Atlanta. And being a good Tybee person of course she has an oyster painted by BellamyBellamy Murphy Murphy. And being a proper southern lady she has beautiful fresh flowers on her table.
I love to find vintage bird prints or botanicals. Not the real thing- they are way too expensive. But the prints by Gould or Audubon are what I look for. Found this great one of sea birds in an old junk store on the panhandle of Florida. Now just need to find the perfect old picture frame for this treasure!

We just love to enjoy our local shrimp for dinner. Before I moved here I always steamed my shrimp. Now I cook them the Tybee way. Super easy and so delicious. Get a big pot of water and bring to a full boil. Add the shrimp. Let them boil in the water for exactly 4 minutes. Take them out and put in a colander to drain. Then toss with lots and lots of old bay seafood seasoning and some fresh lemon wedges. That’s it!!!! Enjoy!
