Just returned from FL via Savannah, GA one of my favorite spots. We saw lots of lovely seaside/port city storefronts selling seafood. Your lovely illo was a great reminder of my shrimp and grits lunch. Hope you are well and enjoying the start of summer.

Heather I will meet you there. What a great idea to leave us a pattern. I sure wish I was somewhere with a little more breeze like come off the Gulf shores.

I love your seafood store. I can smell the sea and it makes me want to be there! Great idea of putting up you black and white drawing for people to colour.

I love this Heather! I also love seafood too! Manhatten or New England Clam chowder are favorites that I don't get to have often enough. Maybe....I will make some soon. :-)

Marlene said...

Wonderful! Now I too am hungry for seafood. Maybe shrimp for dinner tonight. Love the details in this one.

maddyrose said...

Delightful. The detail in this piece is fantastic. Were you sitting on a bench in front of the place when you sketched it? Now I have a hankering to make a pot of Manhatten clam chowder.

Birdie said...

I really love the colors in this one, and I'm super-excited about being able to print and color my own! What a sweet, generous idea. Thank you.

Wow, Heather, this must have taken you ages! did you base this off of any shack you;ve visited or just pulled it from your mind? you know what is so funny? It's that when I thought of this theme I immediately thought this was a perfect tie-in for one of the places one of your sweet little characters would visit. Instead, you took this an entirely different direction--juast as amazing, mind you. I love it. so clever. love the flags and littel touches you did all over this piece. TY.

claire said...

Yes please! I would love to be there (having just returned from the beach I'd love to be back there). What a great idea and beautifully done as always.

Daniella said...

Julia Christie said...

Gosh darnit you have the best imagination!!! How are you my friend?

I LOVE this store and all the details are sooo cute!

Some clam chowder or lobster bisque sounds pretty good right now as it is RAINING yet again here in the northwest! Uggggh!

(So excited to be going on my trip this coming weekend to oregon and will be treating myself to some lattes and maybe a few glossy magazines thanks to your wonderful gift!)

Miss you and so sorry I've been so absent lately - just awful busy!

hugs and smiles

Ahoy to you Heather. This seafood shack is so much fun, and there are lots of interesting details to enjoy. Is that a lighthouse weather vane? Love the festive flags.
