Happy Little Cottages By The Sea

Cottage Charm, Coastal Calm

June 2010

Screened Inn, Tybee Island, GA

We can finally stop saying “the other side of the mess hall”.  The contest held on The Lettered Cottage was incredibly successful with over 2000 people voting on the name.  You could vote and then actually watch the tally happen with each vote. Amazing!

We also named the various bedrooms-  The Lettered Love is the Master Bedroom, Sand and Sea is the bedroom with the two twin beds and the bright and sunny yellow bedroom is called Lemonade Mermaid.

Photo shoot will happen on Friday, Open House on Sunday afternoon ( this weekend) and we’ll be hopefully welcoming guests next week!!!

Pictures are coming soon….

Name the Cottage Contest- we’re having fun now!

Yes, the contest is on!!!  I have narrowed down the over 500 suggestions of names for the new side of the mess hall and the voting has officially begun. We have over 900 people who have voted, so don’t forget to join in the fun!

I actually had so many great names to chose from that I ended up deciding to name all the bedrooms as well.  This picture is the “yellow bedroom and these are some of the very fun things Layla and Kevin are working with to create a truly magical space.

You only have until Monday June 21st to vote, so don’t be left out!  www.theletteredcottage.net

Who knew submitting names could be so much fun! You can even see the tally of where the various names are in the contest.  Love this!

Tybee Island, the busiest place on the face of the earth!

I AM SO BUSY!!!!!!    The phones are ringing like crazy, the emails are flying thru cyberspace and landing on my lap top and black berry, the guests are arriving and departing faster then I can remember- SUMMER IS HERE!

On top of the busiest summer season ever,  Layla and Kevin are working like crazy on the Mess Hall.  Creating pure magic. Truly magic! If you haven’t been to their website, you have to visit daily.   And on top of THAT- we are doing a photo shoot at a couple of our cottages this Friday and Saturday for a coffee top table being published in Australia.

All this is a round about way of saying I’m keeping up with Twitters and Twitter Pictures on a regular basis ( very easy to tweet and take a quick picture) as well as our Mermaid Cottages Facebook page.  So if you’re not seeing alot of blogging, please check out the other two quick snippets of our Tybee Island lives!

Pictures of our newest Guide Dog Puppies!

All “four” of my dogs- on the fence side with me is Berkeley ( the almost year old black lab) and Boomer ( the 14 week old golden retriever) and on the other side of the fence is Danny and Max. Who truly had no interest in playing. All they cared about was when was their human coming back over to their side of the fence so they could go inside and cool off.
The newest puppy came to visit us last week!  Boomer is a 14 week old Golden Retriever Puppy.  Is there anything cuter this a golden puppy?
Berkeley is the other guide dog puppy we are sponsoring- he’s almost a year old now and about to go back to Guide Dog school for his training.  This picture shows  his tail and you can also see how much bigger he grew!
When I first decided I wanted to offer the guide dog biscuits as a way to raise money to help sponsor a guide dog I had no idea how long it would take to put together the label the product and everything else.
It was worth it when I saw these two pups last week!  And will be even more worth it when Berkeley hopes finishes up his guide dog training and becomes some type of a service dog!
