Cozy Cottages & Happy Homes

Cottage Charm, Coastal Calm

May 10, 2011


PAWS and PADDLES, our newest pet friendly cottage is all ready for a visit from young Griffin and his best gal, Mae.

Griffin is an avid outdoorsman and he’s looking forward to pulling a few big ones from the waters around Tybee.  Mae is just happy to go along and find some great adventures, too.

When it’s time to serve up the day’s catch they’ll enjoy the Pawsome Patio and back deck at Paws and Paddles!

When you share your Tybee adventures with your best furiend be sure to post your photos on our Facebook pages.  We love hearing about your Dog Tales and  everyone enjoys adding more smiles to our Wag Pack.


Mermaid Sighting: More Fabulous Art!

What do we love more than anything? OK, mermaids, that’s true…but besides that? COLOR! Around here at Mermaid Cottages, we just love colorful art, and when we see work like this…we can’t help but love it! These beautiful mermaids are the creations of artist Susanne Reisterer of Kalamazoo, Michigan. Susanne is a super talented lady and we just can’t get enough of her fun, funky artwork! Here’s what she had to say about her work:

“I love colorful, whimsical art! I tend to create highly patterned art. I try to keep my art light hearted and fun and I freely use dots because they remind me of laughter! I hope my art brings a smile to your face and delight to your day!”

Susanne's art is just fabulous!

It definitely makes us smile, Susanne! Your art fits the quirky, fun loving spirit of Tybee for sure!

Not only is Susanne a fabulous artist…as a middle school art teacher, she shares her creative spirit and talents daily with her students. Such an inspirational lady! Susanne has so much more wonderful work to browse and enjoy over at her shop, Summer House Gallery on Etsy, so make sure you visit her there! Beautiful art galore!
