skipper

Put a little skip in your summer with some nautical touches. I have often thought that it would be fun to find some bright outdoor patio furniture upholstered in a sailcloth and some high gloss all weather furniture.  Does summer put a skip in your step?  

(Today is "Creative Thursday" and I am enjoying the on-line pod casts which I will post about next week!  Marisa's voice and words always put a skip in my step!)

My heart skipped a beat when I saw today's illustration! I see myself in that seat, feet propped up on the table, a book in my hand, sunglasses on, people watching all day long!

That would be pretty. I would love a beach va-ca right about now. Just to relax and look at the water would be dreamy.

The lady in your sketch looks so elegant! Beautiful! My favorite nautical clothing items are blue and white striped boat neck T's!

Sailcloth and high gloss??? Two of my fav pairings...one of my tricks is to actually use high gloss boat paint. You could skate on the finished effect it's sooo shiney! Now whe're really talking nautical...XXOO

I could jump into that illustration right now and be happy as a clam.

Love the color combination and the herringbone brick patio.

Yes, especially with all of the flowers everywhere. But often times the weather is just too hot!

I love your sketch -- makes everything seem nice and cool.
