Any of these / ALL of these pillows would look great on my little blue Ikea sofa :)
I’m still working through this book, but the third that I’ve read so far has been really enjoyable!
Pillows with non-rectangle shapes always catch my eye. How fun is this one?
And who doesn’t love the Squid and the Whale?! Plus, when they aren’t pillowing around, you could play fight with them.
Hope your Wednesday isn’t dragging and that the rest of your week isn’t boring!
I know I’ve been absent for a while and I was working on this elaborate post where I explained myself but then I was just kind of like, “Uhm, nah……” (Although it is saved in drafts so maybe it will make an appearance in the future.)
The holidays are just around the corner and you might need an idea or two for that special whale-lover in your life. My go-to for all things gifts is always Modcloth. Always. I spent 3 hours on my phone last night browsing gifts. And I finished my shopping weeks ago. But this whale whisk is a great idea for any chef! Quirky kitchen gadgets are always a hit.
For the clean-freak in your life, this adorable nail brush will brighten up their bathroom & their finger nails.
And perhaps the item I have been coveting most since I moved into my apartment, the Whale Welcome Mat.
The perfect mat for the perfect home.
I hope everyone’s Wednesday is warm and dry! We’ve gone some kind of rain/snow mix happening outside right now and the view from my window is about as close as I’m willing to get to it :)

As if I didn’t think ModCloth was great enough, they have to go and stock these amazing shoes!
I’m literally drooling over here, guys. I’ll be keeping a close eye on these babies- I can only hope they go on sale before they sell out.
I would love to hang this on my wall:
I have a lot of slanted walls, so space is a little limited. But for this print? I would make it work.
And I think this little carpet is the only thing missing from my bathroom collection:
I already have the toothbrush holder and the shower curtain. Plus, I could really use a little rug for in front of the sink :)
Happy Wednesday, everyone! Hope you all have a great week!
Whale duffle edition!
I want to make a duffle bag. I’ve been looking for patterns online and studying them in stores (read: Target) get get a better idea of how they’re made. I want to create something simple but still give it my own spin. Here are some beauts I happened upon in my research.
I’ve seen a larger, blue version of this one before.
I really like how the mouth is an extra pocket. I LOVE pockets!
I wish, wish, WISH I had the patience to knit / crochet because I would be all about something like this:
But I just can’t get into it. It takes too long for me to transfer the idea in my head into a net of yarn knots. I have a friend who’s pretty good at it, though. I’ll just leave the crocheting to her.
I think this one is my favorite though:
I like how the front part is 2 pockets, it puffs up to a realistic whale shape, and it looks pretty roomy.
When/ if I ever get around to this project I will definitely share pictures!

Wednesday Whale Love

This week is all about clever whale bags!
This dice bag is super nifty. If it was a little bigger I think it would make a great beach bag!
I’ve had my eye on this precious purse for such a long time!
And this. Ah! It’s beautiful! Amazing! Adorable! So many other adjectives! It’s perfect. I would take it everywhere.
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
My friend, Claire, shared this awesome dress with me:
ModCloth has the BEST dresses. They’re so fun and cute and unique. I get so many dresses from ModCloth. Personally, they are pricey for my budget so I scout the sales or wait for a special occasion.
And when I was looking at the yellow beauty above, I found this blue beauty below!
I like the yellow dress. But this dress? Head over heels for! The colors, the shape, the print, everything!
And what dress is complete without a belt? (Most dresses, I think. But I’m trying to build a whale outfit here!)
This buckle is perfect! Not too big, not too small. Just a great accent, for any outfit.
Hope it’s not too frigid where ever you are! Allegedly there is warmer weather on the way, but I’ll believe it when I see it :)
Let’s talk about Belugas. They are arguably the ugliest whales out there. They look like lumpy sea ghosts. Swimming around in freezing cold water for most of the year. Always getting attacked by polar bears and killer whales and Inuits. Obviously you aren’t blending in well with all that ice, Belugas! You’re still on the protected species list! But I did find some cool Belugas on Etsy.
These earrings are beautiful. Hand painted and everything!
This iron-on patch is intense. You can totally see the Sea-Ghost coming out!
I love anything that can hang on a whale (which is why I have no empty wall space in my room). This whale is majestic! He’d be the show stopper of any wall.
Hope your Wednesday isn’t too cold!
