Seas The Day Mermaid Table

There are mermaids everywhere at Lake Powell,
just in case you didn't know!  They joined us for
dinner, despite the sign saying not to feed the mermaids!

My sister in law wanted to have a craft day,
and she was making wooden signs.  She has
a little wood shop in her garage.  It was so
fun watching her cut, sand, and drill the wood.
I decided to make this mermaid sign.

At Lake Powell we have a huge table that
Hubby's company made - Tyvarian.  It can seat 12.

I found these adorable plates on Overstock this summer.
I had seen some Mermaid plates in Hawaii, but
they were one of a kind and cost-prohibitive, so
I started searching online for some plates.

These are the dinner plates.  Isn't she just adorable?

The salad plates feature a different mermaid.

A similar mermaid decorates the bowl.
I was able to buy 16 of each.  Since
 we have limited storage on a houseboat,
I gave away a set of taupe plates that I had.

I found this pineapple flatware last year.  It is heavy and 

Having a great love for mermaids, I am
thrilled with these new plates.  They can
swim up to eat with us anytime.

I also got a new shell chandelier this year.
The old one was worn out.  I love how the
breeze creates such a beautiful sound as
the shells tinkle.
I found it on Pottery Barn Teen.  My son
went down early to set up the houseboat,
and he assembled the chandelier - I was
amazed at his skills!

Some new Flamingos also joined us at Lake Powell 
this year.  I found these at At Home.  I just
love their sassy, mysterious look.  My granddaughter calls
them "Mingos"!  My son 
thought they were so cute, he was afraid someone
might steal them!

Thanks for joining me and the mermaids and
flamingos today.  

I will be sharing this with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
