Nervous Nellies

I always feel stymied when I try to describe Nervous Nellie's: a cottage industry that is actually in a cottage? A quirky living museum of island life and culture? A folk art sculpture garden that feels magical, hilarious and poignant all at once? A colorful shop of handmade goods and a tea room with homemade goodies? A sandbox with great toys? A dog that smiles? It is a treat for us to see people explore the grounds, discover the unexpected, poke into the kitchen when the kettle is boiling to have a sniff and chat up our cook, Patty. I love to eavesdrop on the ecstatic moans as people taste the jam samples for the first time, watch a child come upon a sculpture that brings delight, or see someone simply relaxing in the autumn sun on the deck, hands cupped around steaming mug of coffee watching everyone else explore, discover, and be delighted
