Some of the pretty things inside the house we rented on Anna Maria Island...

I wanted this little table at the bottom of the stairs.  So many neat drawers to hold treasures!

The house had way too many bedrooms for just Sweetie and me, but it was the cutest place we could find at the time we booked.  Each room had nice artwork (all prints but nice prints on canvas) on the walls.  I like that touch - makes you feel like you are in a home, not just a rental house.

The many paintings of boats (especially this one) made me think of Jeanette Jobson's boat paintings in oil, using a palette knife.  This print looked like the original was with a palette knife.

Even the poolside chairs were pretty colors (and compliments on the color wheel)!

The only pink sunrise I saw while we were there.  This was the view out the back, over the pool, looking toward sunrise.  Pretty pink sky the last morning we were there. 

Goodbye, Anna Maria Island!  See you again som

Rhonda that table is lovely. Looks like this house was just wonderful. The art really did make it seem like a home. Thanks for sharing your sunrise too. Have a great day!

Love the chairs since they are the exact colors of the chairs on The Crooked Little House deck! And boy, would I ever love to have that multi-drawer piece of furniture.

Debbie, it was a lovely house.
Elizabeth, I'm not surprised you have complimentary chairs at The Crooked Little House :) I loved that little chest of drawers.
Caroline, glad you enjoyed the photos. I am finally getting back in the mood to paint from some of the photos and memories of the place.
