Nora Butler’s Whimsical Seaside Illustrations

 I found some delightful prints online done by Nora Butler
and knew right away that I'd have to include them in my blog.
Wait - it gets better.
I discovered that Nora has a shop - in Naples, Florida, 
of all places, where we'd soon be vacationing!
The coincidence was too cool to ignore.

Sure enough, we found Nora Butler Designs
in Naples' Crayton Cove, at 800 12th Avenue South.
Total beach charm, the shop was stuffed to the gills with
Nora's prints, figurines, clothing and note cards.
And as a bonus - I got to meet the artist herself.

Nora was blessed to grow up with Florida sand between her toes.
She developed both a talent for drawing and a love for the shore at a young age.
Her illustrations invite us to pause and look closer at what's within,
to take time to appreciate the details.
