Our Grand New Adventure

2015 marked a turning point for our family: we packed up house and headed east. A new home, a new province, a new environment, a new career—a grand new adventure.

We quickly slipped into the easy east coast life where everyone is your neighbour, walking is the transportation of choice, treasure hunting on the beach is a favourite pastime and falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean is a reality (not a recording on a sound machine!).

This is our new “salty” life in magnificent Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.

Our Grand New Venture

The many faces of beautiful Cape Breton can’t help but inspire the artist inside. Janet began painting watercolours of our new surroundings in our transitional year of 2015. This led to a small card and print business, selling at the local Inverness Village Market and various shops around the island. A test run of t-shirts sporting her artwork did well, and Mark suggested launching a full-out t-shirt business. In a brainstorming session, Casidhe came up with the “Salty Tees & Co.” name, which reflects our life by the sea and her salty-ish personality. Confession: we’re all about the sarcasm in our family and we’re all a little salty betimes!

Janet’s artwork has expanded from watercolour to sketching and creating digital designs that reflect our east coast life.

Here we are today, building our salty brand, little by little, exploring all that makes our new life so memorable.
