Lighthouse Note Cards

Lighthouses attract people.  If you look at tourism advertising, websites of coastal communities, the vacation pictures taken by visitors to coastal destinations, you will see the familiar images of lighthouses figure prominently.  Lighthouses connect people with their coast, with their seashore.  So this week I am featuring lighthouse note cards at my Etsy shop.

The note cards are reproduced from my original paintings of these lighthouses.  There are 12 cards in each pack, (two of each lighthouse scene) with 12 white envelopes, all tied up with string.

The lighthouses are all "down east" lighthouses, four scenes from Grand Manan, one from Campobello, and one from Maine.  Gannet Rock Lighthouse is located far out at sea, off Grand Manan, out in the middle of the Bay of Fundy:

Three of the paintings depict Swallowtail light from different views and different seasons:

Head Harbour Light on Campobello Island is known world wide as a lighthouse icon:

West Quoddy Head Lighthouse, near Lubec, Maine, is the easternmost point of the United States:

Altogether, these lighthouse note cards give a real seaside feel to the notes you might wish to write on the blank inside of the card.  Unique and attractive as a gift, this pack of note cards is just what you might want to surprise someone who loves the sea and sea coasts.
