Flirting Mermaid


Hi, my name is Katya. I am from Siberia (brrr-r-r-r). But now live in Cyprus:) I am making DOLLS  for  “BIG KIDS”. For those who still remember the ROAD to CHILDHOOD: to the time when trees were bigger and dreams were brighter…

Iron Mermaids

We’ve got another great Mermaid Sightings for y’all!  It’s called Iron Mermaids!  It looks almost like there’s a Mermaid Convention going on at The Beach House Market in Panama City Beach!

Mermaid Sightings: The Beach House Market

The Beach House Market is home to a lot of fabulous things! They’re filled to the brim with shabby chic home decor that includes lamps, shells, depression glass, nautical items, jewelry, rugs and Mermaids!

You’ll find this unique shopping experience just past Pier Park and Highway 79 in Panama City Beach, FL.  They’re located inside the shopping plaza next to Dollar General, on the right.  Y’all better hurry before I get down there and bring every one of these fish-tailed beauties back to Tybee Island!

Remember, Mermaids are everywhere and they come in all shapes, sizes and colors.  When you see them, email your photo to diane@mermaidcottages.com and you could be featured in an upcoming Mermaid Sightings blog!


Puppy Dog Tails

There’s nothing fishy here.  This Mermaid is thankful that my heart beats in rhythm to a trio of puppy dog tails.  Danny, Sophie and Boomer are my ambassadors for love, life and caring.  They each came into my life at different times for different reasons and, just like pieces of a puzzle, they fit and click and see me and accommodate me.

Puppy Dog Tails
Here’s Danny!

It’s their passions and capacities for acceptance that guide and maintain the plan to make room for pets in my life and my business.  They also help remind me we’re here to serve and share and make living much more enjoyable at Mermaid Cottages. …
