Human/House/Harvey: Beach

Human House Harvey, BeachI’m terrified of the ocean…well any big body of water for that matter, but I can’t seem to stay away from the beach.  The sand, sun and fun activities — on-land only– get me so excited for the summer. So even with this irrational fear of the big blue abyss, I can’t help but love everything beach-themed. Here are a few beachy items for me, my home and my pup. —Stephanie

HUMAN – How fun would this Coney Island beach scene iPad case look while using your iPad on the beach? A scene within a scene.  I love it! And I’d toss in this beach umbrella iPhone case for good measure.

HOUSE – I’ve become a big fan of taking time in the morning to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea.  And if I had an adorable tea serving set like this Anthropologie shell set, I would definitely make even more time.

HARVEY – It’s rare for a Shar Pei to love the water (Harvey is a Sharperrier – Shar Pei + Terrier mix), and while Harvey won’t tempt the ocean waves, he absolutely adores the beach.  So I thought these boat themed toys were just perfect for my not-quite-so-nautical pooch.

  1. I love that iPhone case! It’s so hard to find good ones- thanks for sharing!

    That iPad case looks like a Martin Parr photo.

  3. I love that dog toy! Very cute for a beach-loving dog. We have a golden — they love, love, love water — and he actually went to the beach for the first time this weekend. Maybe this will inspire Harvey to tempt the waves :)

  4. Wow! the tea set is adorable! I would love a cup of tea in it…..
