Beach Bum Biscuits: There’s Gonna Be A Bark-B-Que!

At Mermaid Cottages, y’all know we take special pride in taking wonderful care of our beautiful pet guests!  As it turns out we’re not the only ones!  Our good friends at The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort and Spa are holding a Bark B Que to benefit the Greater Savannah Humane Society and build a low cost community pet spay and neuter clinic!  Join us on Saturday, June 18th for the Bark-Gun Golf Screamble, the Hush Puppy Silent Auction, vendors sponsoring the Tour de Wolf and some fantastic Bark B Que!

All dogs are welcome and encouraged to attend, but owners must be leashed at all times!




Mermaids in Our Midst: The Fabulous Elizabeth Demos

Our good friend, Elizabeth Demos!

Everyone at Mermaid Cottages is so proud of our good friend, designer and stylist Elizabeth Demos! She describes herself as a wife, mother, friend, author,entrepreneur, photo stylist, event designer, creative spirit, merchant of marvels, bona fide junker, amateur blogger…and we think that describes her perfectly! We have know for years that she is one talented lady -especially since she was the styling genius behind both Doyle’s on the Beach and Crabby Jo’s Cottages– but now the entire country will know about how awesome she is because, Liz’s work made the cover of Southern Living Magazine!

Liz regularly contributes to amazing publications (check out the list here!), but this is her first national magazine cover and we are super excited for her! You can check out the article here- Southern Living: 7 Ways to Make a New (Old) House or in the brand new June 2011 issue on the newsstands now. Liz Demos never ceases to amaze us with her fabulous work and, of course, this home is no exception! The pictures have us positivly swooning and fanning ourselves…what a beauty!

We are so proud to say that Liz has her studio right here in Savannah! Make sure you check out her beautiful website and blog over at ElizabethDemos.com. You can even follow her drop-dead-gorgeous photo stream on Flickr for endless inspiration!

Congratulations again Liz! You definitely deserve the national spot light. Keep up the great work!
