Wednesday Whale Love: April Fools Edition

Forget whales. Today is all about turtles! It’s a lesser known fact that turtles are my all-time favorite animal (and tortoises! I group them together). I love them so much because they carry their homes around with them on their backs, so they are always home no matter where they are. Amazing! I have a small-turtle collection that I keep on my dresser, aka “The Turtle Shelf.” They had their own shelf at one time, but after moving and rearranging and condensing and reorganizing, they ended up on my dresser. The perfect size for a collection member is between 1 and 3 inches and is made of glass, stone, or metal. Stuffed animal turtles, while accepted, are allocated to an adjacent surface so they are close but do not mingle.

I want all of these. All of them!

ALL OF THEM!

Wednesday Whale Love: whale-shaped bags

That’s right! This week we’ll be looking at some amazing creations NOT JUST because they are whale-shaped- but because they have intricate details that make them super awesome.

Take this Orca Bag for example. It could have been just a regular and boring back pack. NOPE! IT’S AN ORCA!

I normally shy away from leather but this little guy is too cute to pass up.

And I saved my favorite for last! Think of the things you could stash in that mouth!

Happy Wednesday!

Wednesday Whale Love: Clocks

I love wall clocks. I don’t mean digital clocks, I mean analog clocks. They are my favorite kind! I learned to tell time with them and, actually, if I look at a digital clock I have to “translate” the time to analog in my head. The first thing I did after signing my lease was buy a clock for every room in my apartment. I mostly went with plain round clocks between $3 and $5, but these would all make terrific replacements!

This one would go right above my desk!

This one is perfect for the bathroom:

And this one I would put in the bedroom above the door.

Happy Wednesday! And do you prefer digital or analog clocks?

Wednesday Whale Love: Magnets

I grew up in a house with a bare fridge. Our pictures weren’t hung when we were small, our school work didn’t make it on when we were older. Family pictures didn’t go there, and neither did postcards. The only thing that made the cut, year in and year out, was a magnetic calendar from the (super nice!) Realtor that helped my parents get their house. That calendar lived on the side, next to the cabinets, mostly out of view. Now, years later, the only magnet to grace that fridge is a lemon-lime colored square that reads, “Mr. Right & Mrs. Always Right.” So I have a weird relationship with magnets. I want them all, but I only want to display my absolute favorite of favorites.

But I deff want all these! And button magnets are so fun; I made some shamrocks for my Gram (but then kept forgetting to give them to her so they hold up our take out menus).

Yes to everything by The Fancy Narwhal! I’m especially taken with this Distinguished Narwhal magnet set :)

I’m actually digging this full set of 12 magnets, but (obviously) the whales take the  cake.

Truly, everything by Isabell’s Umbrella is cheek-pinching cute.

IT’S WEDNESDAY! What have you done with your week so far?

Wednesday Whale Love: Night Lights

I slept with a night light until I was 17, so night lights will always have a special place in my heart.

Sweet and simple:

This one is really neat- I like the color a lot.

(source)

And my favorite find:

And I know the perfect bed-side table I would keep it on ;)

I hope everyone’s week is going well so far! Happy Wednesday!

Wednesday Whale Love: Brooch Mania

I have a couple really neat whale-themed brooches, but a girl can always have her eye on one or two more! This first one I found is so pretty with that shell embellishment!

(source)

This red one almost looks like a fruit snack. A happy, smiling fruit snack :D

(source)

And this one, Oh! Whale brooch with Moby Dick script on it? Yes, please!

(source)

Actually, if you know a book lover you should definitely check out House of Ismay on Etsy. Great, unique gifts for your literature obsessed friends!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Wednesday Whale Love: Hair Clips

Bobby pins are my all-time favorite hair accessory. I mostly use them to clip my bangs back now, but I’ve been known to rock a couple of fun ones just to switch things up. Here are some really cool ones I found on Etsy this week!
