Portsmouth Cloud Oars and Life Preservers Yardage by Amy Smart for Riley Blake Designs | C12914-CLOUD
Portsmouth, New Hampshire might be one of my favorite places on the planet. Twenty-five years ago I married into a New England family - my husband’s parents and extended family are all from Portsmouth and southern Maine, right on the Atlantic coast. As a result I’ve been able to spend many summer vacations and family reunions soaking in the New England nautical perfection: beaches, sailboats, lighthouses, thriving hydrangeas, the smell of saltwater, and American flags and buntings hanging from colonial houses built before 1776.
This collection is inspired by faded vintage quilts at the beach, sand in your toes, celebrating summer and the 4th of July with flags and picnics, lobster rolls and barbecue, and ending the day with the perfect sunset.
