Our newest Artist @ SeaSide Sisters Coastal Cottage Shop

I have a wonderful new artist being featured in my “shop within a shop” @ SeaSide Sisters here on Tybee. Catherine Lovett does amazing bright, vivid coastal scenes- usually painting on large canvas .

She’s done two incredible paintings that hang in my cottage- one of blue crabs and another of wild Georgia Shrimp and lemons. They are so beautiful, her art will be appearing in a future article in Paula Deen’s magazine . The pictures just make your feel like you’re on the coast! She will also be a featured artist at the 15th Annual Telefair Art Show in November www.telefair.org


We are very lucky because Catherine is now painting just for SeaSide Sisters very small ( 5×5 or 4×6) and affordable (under $50) original pieces of coastal art. The above pictures: A Basket of Oysters, an Oyster, a Shrimp, a Starfish and a Sanddollar and even a small picture of Tybee’s Back River are now in the shop.
Stop by and see this bright and cheerful fun original art!!!

Our Roving Blogger Hallie’s Movie Updates

I can’t be every place at once, so one of my favorite Savannah friends- Hallie- has volunteered to be my guest blogger complete with photographs. Here is her newest report from Downtown Savannah AND the newest movie being shot here – produced and directed by ROBERT REDFORD!!!! PS- I’ve also included a picture of Hallie and one of her all time favorites – Paula Deen!


“Well, the second day of filming for The Conspirator commenced on a beautiful sunny and comfortable Tuesday in downtown Savannah, GA. The movie, as you can see from the props, is set to take place during the 1860s. The story is about Mary Surratt, the lone female charged as a co-conspirator in the assassination trial of Abraham Lincoln. Directing this film is none other than the handsome and famous Robert Redford (as you can see from my blurry pictures).
The movie will feature James McAvoy (Atonement), Evan Rachel Wood (The Upside of Anger) and Robin Wright Penn (Message in a Bottle). Recently added to the film cast is Justin Long (Mac computer guy and He’s Just Not That Into You).
McAvoy plays a disfigured Civil War hero who comes to Mary’s defense, while Long will play his best friend and fellow soldier who also assists as McAvoy’s conscience. Robin Wright Penn will play Mary Surratt and it is rumored that Evan Rachel Wood will play President Lincolns wife, Mary Todd Lincoln. Filming is set to run into December so more updates to come from beautiful Chatham Square, primary location of the filming.”
