Coastal Blueprint Posters

These coastal blueprint posters measure 12″ x 12″ and depict both nautical animals and structures.

The first shows a lighthouse, sailboat, and anchor, and the second an octopus, seahorse, and crab.

True, they’re more map-like than blueprint-like, but, either way, if I had a beach house, this art would be on the walls.

Sandy Snowman | Christmas in Siesta Key, Florida

It was negative 16 degrees in some areas of the country this week, but here in Tampa, Florida, we’ve got a balmy high of 79 today.

Most of us Floridians do wish it was a wee bit cooler, but we’re still enjoying Christmastime in our own way.

In the spirit of the season, I wanted to share this photo by Barbara Weibel of a snowman built from the soft, white sand of Siesta Key:

Sandy Snowman  |  Christmas in Siesta Key, Florida

As a local beach bum who has known the joy of toes buried deep within the cool, velvet sands pictured here, I can share a smile with this contented snowman.

Merry Christmas from Florida!
