~~Anchors Aweigh~~

Summer reminds me of the water... here in Michigan we are surrounded by the Great Lakes and a multitude of inland lakes as well.  I've always loved anything nautical; being near or better yet, being on the water, enjoying the cool breeze it offers on a warm summer day, or my favorite, walking a deserted beach late into the night.  And lighthouses.... Michigan has more lighthouses than any other state in the US.  One of my favorite things to do is visit each one, learn it's history, it's ghosts, and just imagine how many old ships have used the beacon during rough waters and treacherous storms. Yes I love old things nautical, and here are some vintage style mixed media collages made similar to the way I made the White Christmas shadowboxes several months ago.  I can almost feel the lake breeze, smell the fresh air it brings in, and hear the lonely wail of the seagulls. One can dream!

It's a gorgeous day here. We just had lunch at Lobdells and enjoyed the awesome view of the bay.
Still some ice but wonderful to feel the sun again.
Must be almost Spring.
Love these pieces you did.
Hugs, Amy

What a wonderful trio of beach beauties! I can hear the waves lapping against the shore and feel the sun on my face :)
