Who found this image and story of a tiny floating shelter that, as she says, looks like it could be from Mermaid's Hands! The houses in Mermaid's Hands are made of salvaged wood and roofed with thatch, but with corrugated metal over the kitchen portion, but people living in Mermaid's Hands are adaptable and would love the painting on the side.

It was found floating 180 miles south of Grand Isle, Louisiana. Pen Pal starts with Em wondering what would happen if she could detach her house and have it go floating free--I guess this little house was finding out! (It turned out to have been a floating dock in Key West, Florida--so that's quite a journey it went on.)

Gotta love the art ♥

That is pretty awesome! I can so imagine the Mermaid's Hands people loving the colors.

I really like that painting and the color scheme.

Me too. Part of what I like about the painting is that it's what artists call "naive"--not some pro person doing a pro version/vision of a mermaid, but just somebody painting what was in their heart.

What a sweet little house! Who wouldn't love to spend a night there?

I'd like there to be a window, but maybe there's one on one of the sides we can't see--otherwise, it's perfect!

Complete with a mermaid!
Send the owner's a copy of Pen Pal.
Somehow Em's musing reminds me of Anne Frank.
