Diner Signs

I’m such a sucker for diners so when my mother created these cute diner signs I squealed with glee! I need one for my kitchen to give me that diner feel at home. The signs can even be printed on metal! How cool is that?! Now I need to get myself an omelette!

The metal one is below!

The next two are examples of signs that can be personalized. Make it your own!

A Cute Pair of Sailboats

A pair of matching small sailboats begin a morning sail on the glassy surface of Tarpon Basin off of Key Largo in the Florida Keys. The sky is cloudless. One boat pulls a dinghy, and the reflections tag along, as well.

I don’t work for Zazzle I just love my mother’s work and I want to share it!

Beachy Breeze

These photos of the Bahamas are phenomenal and you are MISSING OUT if you don’t experience them. AMAZING.

A yellow-throated warbler perches on a palm frond on Great Guana Cay in the Bahamas in late fall. These warblers are commonly seen creeping about in the crowns of palms, probing among the fronds with their long bills during the winter in Florida, the Caribbean and other tropical areas.

The yellow-throated warbler is a clear-voiced singer in the treetops in southern woodlands of the United States, according to the Audubon Society. Yellow-throated Warblers return very early in spring to the U.S. pine woods and cypress swamps, where they may be seen foraging rather deliberately along branches high in the trees. In the Midwest, they are typically found in riverside groves of sycamores.

It’s a small song bird, with a yellow throat and chest, gray back, black face connecting to stripes down its sides, white eye stripe, white ear patch and two white wing bars.

Beautiful cirrocumulus clouds seem to converge on the Church of St. Simon by the Sea in Treasure Cay, Great Abaco Island, The Bahamas. The turquoise-trimmed white church, which is Anglican/Episcopal, was established in 1972 and dedicated in 1999. The church can seat 150. A bougainvillea blooms near the front door.

Furniture and umbrellas in bright colors decorate a deck of a bar and grill on Great Guana Cay in the Bahamas. The bar is a very popular destination for both locals and tourists. Big, fluffy white clouds add the final touch to the outdoor decor. On the back of the card is a view of the beach behind the bar.

A queen conch shell glows in the afternoon sun as it rests on the powdery white sand of Great Abaco Island in the Bahamas.

The queen conch Lobatus gigas is herbivorous and lives in seagrass beds, although its habitat varies by development stage. The adult animal has a very large, solid and heavy shell, with knob-like spines on the shoulder, a flared thick, outer lip and a characteristic pink-colored opening.

International trade in the Caribbean queen conch is regulated under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) agreement, in which it is listed as Strombus gigas. This species is not endangered in the Caribbean as a whole, but is commercially threatened in numerous areas, largely due to extreme overfishing.

The meat of the queen conch is featured in many Caribbean dishes, such as conch fritters, chowder and salad. The empty shells are used widely as decoration.

popular destination on Great Guana Cay in the Abacos Islands of the Bahamas is Nipper’s. The restaurant has two pools, several decks and a stairway to a white sand beach. A gift shop sells t-shirts and other products. If you wear a Nipper’s t-shirt, you are likely soon to be greeted by a fellow Nipper’s visitor throughout the world.
