Mermaid Sightings: They’re In Annapolis, Too!

Mermaids are everywhere!  They’re in Annapolis, too!  This week’s Mermaid Sightings come from Rhonda, our Mermaid friend in Maryland.

“I found these in Annapolis last week.  The one with the tag is a fan for sale at Bed, Bath & Beyond. (They also had crab fans!).”

This beauty was spotted at Bed, Bath and Beyond!

“The other is the logo for a car wash.”

Mermaid Sightings: They're In Annapolis, Too

We even did a little checking and found that Maritime Autowash is a Best of Annapolis award winner!  “Maritime Autowash is a full time carwash utilizing state of the art hybrid technology.  We recycle 97% of our wash water and only use biodegradable detergents and waxes.”  They’re a leader in environmental conservation, just like us!

Thanks to Rhonda for sharing these two sea gals with us.  Remember, when you’re out and about and see a Mermaid, snap a photo and email it to diane@mermaidcottages.com.  You and your Mermaid Sighting may be featured in an upcoming blog post!

Mermaid Sighting: Siren’s Call

This week’s Mermaid Sighting is Siren’s Call Wine and it was sent in by Ro from Jackson, SC!

Mermaid Sightings:Siren's Call Wine

 

“Follow the call of the siren and you will find us.  A wine inspired by the melodies of Greek mythology’s most  alluring seductress.  A wine cultured from notes of sophistication an unquestionable beauty.  A wine that answers a call.  This is our wine.  This is Siren’s call.”

We love this beautifully branded and illustrated wine bottle design!

“Like the sailor-seducing mermaids of Greek mythology, Siren’s Call draws in wine drinkers with its alluring design and robust flavours. Hand-drawn illustrations and typography highlighted with cream and flecks of gold make for a truly tempting wine no mortal can resist.”

As we like to say, it doesn’t matter to us if the glass is half full or half empty…All that matters is there’s room for more wine!  Thank you, Ro!  We love your Mermaid Sighting and Siren’s Call.  Remember, mermaids (and mermen) are everywhere.  If you spot one, send it to us and you could be featured in an upcoming Mermaid Sighting!

The Mermaids of Tybee Island

Diane Kaufman air the Mermaid Cottages gathering

I recently attended a gathering of the Mermaids at Bohemian Cottage.  Here are a few shots I took of the Mermaid Cottages team and Diane.

There was a master class of towel and sheet folding by housekeeping and a dessert contest.

There is one shot of a mermaid that inspired this blog post.  I’ve been accused of dressing for my rooms in the past.  As an interior designer you get in the groove with color and pattern, it just happens.  Notice the zebra stripes.
