Happy Valentine’s Day- Tybee Style!
What a fun, busy weekend planned on Tybee today and tommorrow! Not only is it Valentine’s Day ( be sure to tell the people you love that you love them today!) but people are converging on the island for a number of reasons!
Seaside Sisters Coastal Cottage Shop is featuring two of my favorite artists this weekend. Pam Martin will be bringing her vintage trailer decked out in Valentine happiness for the weekend. She’s bringing special cards, special jewelry, all sorts of coastal art and her usual very happy and sunny personality to share with everyone. If you didn’t see her little trailer last visit- be sure to stop by, it’s definitely worth the trip. She’s also purchased and is restoring another vintage trailer which should hopefully make it’s appearance for our big St Patrick’s Day weekend celebration on March 14th Weekend.
Some of you know of the artist named Gypsy who sells her work in the shop as well. Gypsy will be here in her vintage hippie trailer ( but it’s actually not vintage to her, just her usual mode of transportation – hey- when you’ve named yourself Gypsy- that’s how you travel!) She has an entire van full of new art she’ll be sharing with everyone. For those of you lucky enough to stay at M. Paddy Cakes Vacation Apartment this spring or summer, be sure you check out the mural she has created for that home! M. Paddy Cakes has two outdoor shower ( hot and cold- private- and we know showering outside is one of the true pleasures in a beach trip!!!) so be sure you admire her terrific art!
Tie the Knot on Tie is also this weekend and since it’s the third year is aptly named “Three times a charm” ( actually one of my personal motto’s in life!) You can get married or renew your vows on the Tybee Pier tonight with assorted strangers and people in love if you so chose. Last year there was a very large March deployment and we had a number of very young soldiers getting married before they left. Quite an emotional evening to be honest. Fortunately we have more soldiers coming home then leaving, so perhaps we’ll have alot of them returning to renew their vows!! www.tietheknotontybee.com for more details, or better yet, stop by tonight and cheer them on!
Sending love to all of you!
