Cheery Observations

Celebrating the Unique, Sustainable, and Creative

Whale Inspired February 21, 2009

I like Vineyard Vines in my ‘own’ way.  Not in the ‘I have to have everything from there and the preppier the better way’.  More in the ‘their whale logo is adorable and their clothes fit well’ way.

I especially love their whale t-shirt and decided to do a little investigating to see what other fun(ky) whale items I might find.

Over on Englishmuffin’s Etsy shop, there is the ‘W is for Whale’ animal alphabet card.

Boatman Geller (home to seemingly all stationary preppy…wow…the colors!) has this whale stationary which I already own.

On Uncommon Goods I found this cheerful Whale Mat.

On Three Potato Four (a wonderful shop of vintage and new finds for the home and children–it’s like a truly amazing yard sale where everything you look at is something you want), I found several things:   a former whale ashtray (much MUCH better as decoration!)….

My fiancee also pointed me to Squared Eye’s (a web design/application firm) website, who uses a whale as their company’s symbol (the whale looks to be modeled after Jonah and the Whale).  The firm carries the whale theme throughout, with phrases such as ‘come swim with us’ and ‘see what swims beneath the surface’.
