Lighthouses are the beacons of light that have guided mariners to safe harbors for as long as there have been ships at sea. They have been a source of safety and inspiration for many hundreds of years in every part of the globe. The lighthouse in our banner above is at Sandy Hook New Jersey and is the oldest operating lighthouse in the United States. It went into operation in 1764 and except for periods of war has been in operation ever since. It is one of the first lights that mark the entrance to the New York Harbor.

Our lighthouse theme for August is for all of us who love lighthouses no matter where we live. Lighthouses represent hope and safety and dispel darkness, but they are also historic and graceful. During this time of world-wide trouble we all need the kind of hope and safety that lighthouses represent. Perhaps you might like one of the many we have in our online store to remind you of the hope that we have in the future when all of our lives will be guided back to the safe harbor we have always lived in before the beginning of this pandemic year.

Now listen, it is the middle of Summer, donít sit here and look at your computer all day. Get out in the hot weather. If you have a boat, get out on the water. If you have a favorite beach or a cottage on the lake, go there and enjoy the sun, water and family.  Only be safe and keep your distance from strangers. Wear a face mask if you have to, wash or sanitize your hands often and keep yourself and your family safe.

Fair winds and following seas.

Famous Lighthouses Throw Pillows
Starting in 1990 the U.S. Postal Service commissioned paintings of many famous U.S. Lighthouses to commemorate our seafaring past to be printed as postage stamps. Several of those paintings were then printed on fabric to make throw pillows out of. That fabric is no longer available but we still have some.
Each pillow is washable 100%color safe cotton with overstuffed polyester fiber fill.
