Wednesday Whale Love: Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day, everyone! It seems only appropriate to feature repurposed and plat-related items on the blog today. I’ll save the knife collection for next week :)

This driftwood coaster can hold your drinks and your pens!

I would love to have this upcycled pendant in my collection. Can you believe it used to be a spoon?

This wall garden is gorgeous! And the plants are low maintenance- just my style.

I hope everyone is having a good week so far!

Wednesday Whale Love: Planters

As if I didn’t already have enough plants in my apartment already, I found some adorable whale planters I’m just dying to get my hands on and fill with new leafy friends!

This one is for an air plant. I on’t have any air plants, but they seem easy to care for and those are my kind of plants!

I love the mint/aqua color of this one. And those little fins, awe!

This little cutie is my favorite. That smile, the two-toned coloring. I’m smitten!

Hope your week is going swimmingly so far! Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Wednesday Whale Love: Socks

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE socks. While I don’t always like wearing shoes, I super like having my feet covered. For warmth! In the winter I layer socks over my tights inside my boots, and I treat socks like slippers when I’m puttering around the house. The only time I don’t like wearing socks is when I’m sleeping. I have a whole dresser drawer devoted to them, but that doesn’t mean I couldn’t add a pair or two more ;)

I love the sharp contrast of this pair. Plus, those whales are real cute.

It looks like mint is going to be a big color this year, so I need this pair to stay on trend.

And these ones: so cool! Whales under and above the sea? C’mon, just try to tell me these aren’t sweet.

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

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).

(source)

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

(source)

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?
