You know all those lovely old etchings of mermaids lounging on a rock at water’s edge? Well, around here all the furniture-sized rocks are pretty much covered with sharp, scratchy barnacles, which can’t be comfy to the tush. To address this age-old dilemma, we here at Crabby Chris & Company have developed the (drum roll, please) -- Mermaid Tuffet.

The Mermaid Tuffet it is cleverly disguised as a sea urchin. In the Pacific Northwest U.S. we have oodles of beautiful little Green Sea Urchins and Purple Sea Urchins; but by the time we come upon them they are most often hollow shells (seagull sushi), and of course the spines are missing. The domed off-white sea urchin skeletons are quite lovely, and feature row after row of symmetrical dots, each marking the spot where a spine was attached.

The pillow measures about 13” in diameter by 10” high, and is lovingly decorated with rows of muted gold dots. It makes a sweet coastal accent pillow, but the little merpeople in your life will likely take a fancy to it and sit on it, mermaid style. Tell them to go ahead – the sturdy hopsacking fabric and nontoxic permanent textile paint are tough enough to take lots of use and abuse. Just spot clean as needed and air dry.

Lovely to look at, and refined enough for the most finicky of mermaids. When the word gets out, who knows how many may show up at your place?

NOTE: If you live outside of the USA and really want one of these, convo me regarding sending you the cover only, which you can stuff on site.
