Blue Mussel Indoor/Outdoor Pillow
You'd be blue too if everyone wanted to steam, bake, batter or stew you, or even eat you raw! Oh, the plight of the hapless blue mussel -- just hanging onto a rock with your fellow mollusks, praying the tide comes back in before you get grabbed by a seagull, crow, predatory snail, sea star or hungry human.
These blue mussel pillows were inspired by the famous Penn Cove Mussel Farm just across the water on the next island. Of course the local mussels never reach the size of these: 21"Lx11"Wx4" thick. These indoor-outdoor pillows are hand painted with nontoxic textile paint which is heat-set for permanence. Stuffed with lots of nice polyester fiberfill, they repel water, dust, dog hair, sun and airborne particulates. The curvy part feels great under your neck on that hammock, sofa, yard swing, or beach blanket; even the sofa or guest room bed!
Mussels look fairly non-glamorous on the outside, but inside is that gorgeous iridescent mother-of-pearl shell lining and that scrumptious yet delicate meat. Maybe get two and start your own mussel farm! Designed, painted, sewn, stuffed, signed and copyrighted on an island in the Pacific Northwest .
Note: Hand painted for you, no two are alike.
