You might not be able to turn your dining room table into a true seafaring vessel, but with these whimsical Ocea Placemats from anthropologie, you'll get the perks of being surrounded by ocean life without any chance of seasickness.
The placemats, available in Piranha, Octopus, and Puffer Fish designs, feature bright colors and fun shapes that are sure to put a smile on your dining companions' faces — regardless of how the salmon turns out. For those of us who are more skilled in creating a beautiful table than in the culinary arts, this is a real plus.
You might not necessarily want to eat out of your dog's bowl, but these dog bowls? That's a different story.
This set of four bowls featuring illustrated dogs belongs on your dining room table, not on the floor in your pooch's feeding station. Let's face it: Smart as your dog might be, he can't fully appreciate how adorable these doggie drawings are, can he?
Each bowl features a different breed, so they're sure to please pretty much any dog lover. Especially the ones who are partial to Labs, Poodles, Pugs or Chihuahuas. Which one would get the most use in your home?
What do you get when you mix a dash of quirky with a dollop of girly — and throw in a shot of mod for good measure? The Flamingo Repeat Shift from Anthropologie, of course!
The short silk shift features an echoing pink flamingo pattern on a bright blue background. The striking pattern is complemented by the simple sillhouette of the dress, which is cut to show off killer legs. Or, if you're feeling particularly cheeky, you could always pair it with some bright pink tights or leggings to really play up the flamingo theme.
Whatever way you wear it, you'll be sure to stand out — in the best possible way.
What is it about hedgehogs that makes them so irresistible? It must be the sweet little face poking out from that prickly exterior. Regardless, we've found ourselves drawn to everything hedgie lately, and the Fluffed Hedgie Pullover from Anthropologie is our newest obsession.
The cotton sweater by Monogram is comfy and casual enough to be paired with jeans, but could also be dressed up with a skirt for a date-night outfit that's full of whimsy. The soft fabric contrasting with the spiky quills in the design is sure to get a second (or even third) look.
For best results, this item should be handwashed (and in our closets!).
It can be... trying, to say the least, to get your pet to sit still for a family portrait. And when you throw a child into the mix, it only gets harder. The number of shots it takes to get everyone smiling, looking at the camera and not flailing around may or may not be the number of shots it takes to drive the family photographer absolutely nuts. Happily, we've found a creative (and supercute) solution: a custom cross stitch portrait!
The Custom Cross Stitch People Portrait from Uncommon Goods offers several options, including a couple only, a couple with one or two pets, a couple with one or two children, and a couple, one child and a pet. There's a simple form to fill out for personalization, but you also have the option to send in photos of the subjects you want in the portrait to give the artist a better feel for your family's vibe.
Anybody else wishing they'd perfected the art of this hobby back in the eighties when it was popular the first time? Yep. Us too.
You're going to want to make a note of this.
The world's cutest way to mark a page is now just a click away! The Smile sticky memo notes bookmark tabs (yep, it's a mouthful) are available in utterly charming kitty designs that are seriously the cat's pajamas. If pajamas were sticky notes. You get it, right?
The sticky notes are about the same thickness as a Post-It and can be written on (if you're OK with defacing these fetching feline faces, that is). Just think about all the potential uses! Save your place in a book, mark an article in a magazine, or, you know, just decorate your computer with them. We won't judge.
