Pink House Mustique - A Watercolour by Patsy Fisher. This is such a charming painting by our great friend Patsy (RIP). It must have been painted before the coffee shop was built in between the Purple House and the Pink House. The painting belongs to Henry Channon and is on loan to me as I now have the honour of holding shop!
Both boutiques were built by Arne Hasselqvist, but the gingerbread style and colouring was Johannah Alexander's idea and believe it or not took some persuading to be accepted by the Mustique planning committee of the day! Originally called 'Treasure Boutique' We renamed it 'The Pink House' in 2008. Along with Basil's Bar, it is possibly the most iconic building and certainly one of the most photographed on-island!

Just 6 days to go until the big Mustique 50th celebration party. 'A Splash of Gold' is the dress code, and we have yet to finish making our costumes!
Arriving back on-island is always an excitement but I wasn't expecting such a hive of activity after just 2 1/2 weeks away! What industry there is in every direction. This isn't any ordinary build-up to the summer high season, there is good reason for such hustle and bustle, Mustique is celebrating 50 years of the formation of the Mustique Company! - quite a mouthful!
