current obsession: all the fish in the sea

I’m heading home to Virginia Beach this week to visit family and catch up on a little beach time (assuming the severe storm threat passes- eek!) so I’ve got water on the brain. This time of year I really miss the smell of salt air and it leaves me longing for anything that reminds me of the ocean. One of my favorite ocean-related motifs is a great fish pattern or shape, so I thought I’d indulge my beach home-sickness with a little fish-themed roundup. I hope you’ll find something in here to bring a little bit of the ocean into your home. xo, grace

Reminds me of my favorite book – Swimmy. Love love Love that blue & white scarf. So cute!


My grandparents’ last name is Fish, so I have to confess that on far too many occasions over the years, I find myself falling back on buying them things with Fish motifs. Some of these are so fun I see I will have to continue the trend.


I was wondering why there was a sudden influx of orders for the fish shawl at work. This explains things!


So, this is where my fish are hanging out! Nice school of fish.
