..... OR Mermaids & Sailors .... They go well together, no matter in which order I place them. These are two of my favorite subjects that I pursue in Art, Literature, Film, Music, Antiques & Collectibles and the Decorative Arts. I will be sharing things here from my collections and other items from the internet that I find appealing to me.
..... I also enjoy all things related to the "Seven Seas", which, of course is the domain of both, Mermaids and Sailors. This may include oceans, islands, ports & harbors, beaches, sea creatures, and classic sailing ships, to name a few.
..... So, relax and enjoy the sometimes wild, but always wet, world of Mermaids & Sailors !!

Chemises hawaenne, ukull et bar cocktails, la culture Tiki s’installe au Quai Branly jusqu’au 28 septembre prochain. Pour la premire fois en Europe, une exposition entire est consacre cette culture venue tout droit de Polynsie et devenue dans les annes 50, un vritable art de vivre aux Etats-Unis
"Since the day old Trader Vic and his boy Don the Beachcomber decided that bars were way cooler when they ceased to be grimy dens of sin and transformed into faux-tropical wonderlands, the Tiki bar has been embedded in American drink culture. They’re places where men can be men… while drinking fruity drinks out of pineapples and wearing tacky floral shirts. Fewer bar scenes have as rabid a following as Tikis, and with the scene seeing an upswing in popularity, we’ve decided to track down 17 of the best Tiki temples in the U.S. Then we drank a lot of rum."
Some fantastic Tiki Bars in this list… but they could have easily expanded it to 20.
Foundation and Hala Kahiki could have been some worthy additions! Not to mention Trader Sam’s, Trader Vic’s and Don the Beachcomber!
