Nantucket

Thursday, August 27, 2009 |

We are having a wonderful time on the island. I'm so enjoying having my husband all to myself! The weather is amazing, the shops adorable and the beaches are beautiful! We have met some very nice people and even ran into friends of friends.
After a long day of relaxing, we go to a restaurant of choice for dinner ~ that's the best part of vacation for me!
I may never return home :)
Currently I'm trying to decide if If *need* one of these fabulous Nantucket lightship baskets. They have a very interesting history behind them and the craftsmanship is amazing. I love all the options of decoration you can choose from {you can even have your monogram placed on them in scrimshaw!} and make them your own.
Decisions, decisions

My aunt is continuing my family's long-standing of Nantucket Basket making. I've built a nice collection, and find that the purse I reach for most often is the "Opera bag." It's a little more user friendly and fun that the heavy lidded baskets. Her site is

Just make sure you get a real one, there are so many knock-offs out there!!

Oh, do I love Nantucket. And I only have been there in the winter..., it must be awesome there right now. Love the baskets too. I think I have at least 5 post on Nantucket and Nantucket Decorating Style @ my blog Completely Coastal. Enjoy!
