Whale of a Tale

While their preppy brethren are often adorable (as evident here, here, here and here,) I've found myself rather smitten with more nautical and slightly serious portrayals of whales.

I've had a crush on this sweet guy for months now; I think what I adore most are his little teeth! With a $12,000 price tag, this antique weathervane won't be mine, but I do hope he finds a very happy home.



Also, for some whale artwork that would look perfectly at home in a little boy's bedroom, look here and here.

Whales are such majestic creatures...I love your objects of choice!

What an interesting choice! We have a lot of whales here in South Australia and where I used to live in coastal Victoria, and they really are beautiful. Perhaps start with a cushion cover and go from there. Enjoy! x Jayne

My little man's nursery has a whale theme, thought it's aqua and avocado colored...not quite as rugged as these. Ah ha. I ordered a bud vase from and hosted a giveaway with BROOKLYNrehab. Her stuff is so fab!

Oh, I love this! I could use a whale in my house I think.

Loved the whale from 1st Dibs - but if you can't have that one, it reminded me of a cute one from Wisteria.
Great post - very fun!
