Pirate Y'arrrrd

The Cottage Market is hosting a "Great Outdoors Linky Party" and since I've been spending all my free time in my back yard, I thought I MUST join in on the fun.
My backyard is not your typical backyard. Sure, we have a pool, gazebos and the like.... but we also have a pirate ship, a pirate store and a pirate tattoo parlor. This year, our pirate ship got a roof added to the cabin.... last years sails were spruced up with some skull and crossbones. Red and white bunting was added for a festive flair, along with red and white fishing nets.The "Lick and Stick Tattoo Parlor" is having its grand opening on June the 9th. Peer beyond the pirate ship under the burlap awning... Here it is....It is in the early stages of construction, here is the table where all the tattoos will be given.....On the counter there is a small fairy garden... where Tink and her friends are playing with some little snail friends... be sure to check it out when you come to the grand opening!Of course, "Chloe's Unique Pirate Boutique" has been open for a few weeks now. Little Miss Chloe has been busy bagging and unbagging merchandise as she sees fit. Nothing is for sale, thats what makes this boutique unique.This is just the beginning of pirate season, there are large pirate steamer trunks full of silver and treasures to be unpacked and placed here and there... and there.... and there......... arrgggghhhh!... a work in progress to be sure!
