Guest Post: Nantucket Inspiration

Hi again, it's Nikki from Cupcakes for Breakfast. I'm headed to my most favorite place, Nantucket Island, for a week-long vacation on Friday and I just can't wait! I visited ACK almost every summer growing up so I have the best childhood memories from the island. Suite Paperie also just shared with me a preview of adorable nautical-inspired stationery for a baby boy and it immediately reminded me of playful summers on Nantucket. Rope bracelets, visits to the Toy Boat toy store to play with wooden boats, lobster lollipops, curling up with mom on a rainy day to read Obadiah and draw sketches of the ocean, collecting sea shells at the beach to make sailor's valentines...these memories are what childhood Nantucket summers are made of. Some of my favorite pieces from this inspiration board include the felted cases for storing colored pencils, hurricane vases for large candles (just in case the power goes out!), and a straw tote that holds everything for trips into town or the beach.

Ok, I'm off to ACK! Enjoy the rest of your summer!
