Arts and Crafts
Look closely around the Blue Shutters and you'll see all sorts of interesting items: paintings, photographs and just about every nautical nick-nack ever made. There's a new addition -- one that's in one of the most visible spots in the Blue Shutters...but something you may never notice. Next time you're here, check out the fan sitting over the main room sofa. Tim Whitten from Maine stayed with us earlier this month and left this item -- a bellrope made from a single piece of string. We thought it would make a cool pull for the fan. Go to Tim's site to see some of his other work, including bellropes, decorative knotwork, and knot tying tools such as fids and prickers. Here you will find ships bell lanyards, sea chests, and sea chest beckets -- all made by Tim.
