That cottage looks adorable. You are going to have such fun!

Preppy 101 said...

That pink door is divine!! Love it!

CoffeewithZooly said...

Okay. You're officially allowed on the deserted island with me and @daisy_loves. She finds pretty things, you paint and I open the champagne (thats my artistic limit). Very witty conversations, - Whola! A perfect world

the BLAH BLAH BLAHger said...

I love the new pic! She looks so FAB!

rosecottagegardensandfarm said...

Oh, dear! I think I shall like to stay here after I get back from Chateau Dumas! But, it may be awhile...I am so in love with all things French.

Your photos are the perfect images for the hot summer days! So sweet!

Best,
Debbykay at Rose Cottage Gardens and Farm

Lylah Ledner said...

Love all the Frenchy pink and could I have one of those cupcakes please? I'm crazy about them!

Fun...very fun spot you have here! Love it.

Julie@beingRUBY said...

Arhh Fifi. You're killing me! I'm dreaming of a holiday right now... in desperate need.. and also tired of winter [here downunder] and here you have displayed everything I could want. Gorgeous little cottage and your purple painting is a winner!! Julie

Susie Q said...

Oh but this is right up my alley, so to speak! I love this....what a blissful time qouls be had...I just spent over an hour delighting in the cottages on the web site. I do think I have discovered one of our next vacation spots! We loved savanna when we were first there and would love to stay on Tybee. : ) And how wonderful! Almost all of these little jewel boxes allow doggies!! Kipper is so excited! He can go as well!

Oh to sit on The Breeze's porch and drink a lovely bit of cool refreshment and enjoy one of those yummy cupcakes...oh. Heaven!
Love,
Sue

Mad Em said...

That tub- to die for.

daisy loves said...

Hoorah to you joing me and @coffeewithzooly on our desert island! As well as being a dab hand at the champagne opening she is also a fantastic cook so you and I can just do 'pretties'! Mind you can we swap the desert island for the Breeze Inn? This place too pretty for words!! x

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

How a-propos - I just finished reading Mary Kay Andrews' new book, "The Fixer Upper". Great post, Fifi!

Eileen said...

This was a beautiful retreat! A nice mini vacation from life for me!

And I'm using the drink recipe at a party this weekend! Thanks!
All the best,
Eileen

cindy said...

so lovely! you are too good to us with these wonderful trips and your illustrations always make them better. enjoy your weekend!

Susan @ Your home, only better. said...

Thanks for the mini visual vac! I needed that! And I just now realized that I have a "thing" for polka dot towels. I love that pic!

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

oh my! that porch painting is sooo beautiful! I'd love to join the porch party! have a great weekend! xo

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

I love Savannah and Tybee island! They are so fun to visit. Your paintings make me want to spend a week or two on Tybee.
Hugs,
Penny
p.s. my sister is still deciding which picture she wants you to paint....as soon as she figures it out I will send it to you.

That Girl Designs said...

Ah, I always enjoy your paintings of the ladies. Another great one.

Terry said...

What is it with those Tybee girls? Tybee is wonderfully modest and compact. It's an island in a breathtakingly huge marshland, on par with "The Marshes of Glynn" at the south end of Georgia.

Jennifer Froh said...

OH! That place is amazing!!! drooling...
LOL! :)

Kristin said...

I'm sold. I need a getaway STAT! Your paintings are so lovely!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Make sure you eat at the Crab Shack. :)

Jacqueline said...

The Breeze Inn looks terrific...I'm off to my own Inn in Italy so see you soon. Have fun XXXX

Char said...

but if you go to Savannah you must go to Back in the Day bakery on the way to Tybee for the best cupcakes in the world. (http://www.backinthedaybakery.com/blog1/buttercreamandrosesblogger.html)

that photo of that bathroom is just lovely!

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Struggler said...

What a wonderful place to stay - all the photos you've shown are great, but I particularly like the bathroom with its spotty towels.

Thanks for offering the notecards, too!

Mary Kay Andrews said...

Fifi--your enchanting paintings make my Breeze Inn Cottage look even better than the reality. Thanks so much for visiting--are those your zebra-print flip-flops and sunglasses on the back porch? I'll ship 'em off asap.

imjacobsmom said...

Thanks for taking me away with you - I needed that! Happy Weekend!

Pam Kersting said...

Have a fantastic stay at the Breeze Inn, my dear! I always love your posts! Do you know I almost named my first child Fredericka after my German Grandmother ... but low and behold, I got a William instead!

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

Oh I love both of the paintings. I love the Breeze Inn the best. Looks like a fun place to go spend some time at.

Carey said...

Now that's a getaway. Just the name "Mermaid" would get me there. I was nuts for all things mermaid when I was a kid and still have a raggedy scrap of my early 1960's mermaid beach towel. I think the hubs has been using it to wash the car:( I'd better go look for it. I suddenly want it back badly. (p.s. love your painting; now I want to wear matching gloves with my swimsuit too)

Carey said...

Oh, wait. That's not a bathing suit, it's underwear. Nevermind:\

shopannies said...

The Breeze Inn looks wonderful

Piper Jacquelyn said...

So beautiful! What a great start to the weekend - lovely Fifi artwork! Happy weekend!

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

OOPS, I just noticed I said I loved BOTH of the paintings when there are three. I meant to say ALL of the paintings. Sorry. I still love the Breeze Inn one best. :)

Amisha said...

Lovely pictures!

Libby Murphy said...

Oh for a Savannah Breeze in a big icy glass with a straw. That's living and cooling.
Happy Twirls

♥Mimi♥ said...

Another rainy and cloudy and dark weekend. I fear that summer is not coming to northern Michigan this year...sigh.

With that in mind, Pink Saturday is a day that cheers me up and allows me to share a wider world than my gloomy portion.

♥Thank you so much for participating this week because it made my day just a little brighter♥
