'D' for Decorating Bathrooms

Whales for the Bathroom

  1. Whale Tissue Holder (I included a pink one in the Filing Cabinet section last week.)
  2. Moby Bath Spout Cover (You can see ours in action here.)
  3. Sing and Spout Bath Mat (We have this in our bathroom now too, and it’s a perfect match to our vintage blue tub.)

And if you need a book to read to your kiddo after their bath, may I recommend Amos & Boris?

    I ADORE all things whale — best book of 2008 was ‘Leviathan’ by Philip Hoare (read it recently in paperback).

    I have my eye on these too from Etsy:

    So adorable! Whales must be a big thing for kids these days, I saw this adorable caddy at Target just yesterday too! Great if you’re trying to corral kiddie-only bath supplies, toys, or whatever.

      Isn’t it nice? I like stories that aren’t overly patronizing to children.

    Whoever thought up the adorable whale toothbrush/razor holder is a genius! Those are the two I constantly (and regrettably;) drop!

    Those are too cute! Are these something you’re consider for Eleanor or just something you wanted to share? Either way, they’re adorable!

    Hey, would you mind stopping by and sharing any advice you have on shooting indoors at night? I’m helping out with a wedding reception this weekend and could use all the help I can get! Thanks!

      We have the tub spout cover and the mat. And I wish I could help you with your photography problem, but I’m really not that good (yet)! I go with a high ISO and a fast shutter speed, but my low-light photos tend to be VERY grainy. Good luck!

    we also went whale themed in our little ones bathroom! the tiddlewinks (sp?) brand at Target has adorable towels and shower curtains too.

    i don’t normally like to go themed, and actually i didn’t really do it this time. for once my husband wanted to pick things out, and thats what he wanted! he picked out every piece on his own and it all looks adorable!

    we also just added a super cute whale print from the Home Sweet Home print collection:

    Lovely choices!

    What book do you read to Eleanor when it’s time for bedtime?

    If you love whales, you should also check out this. It’s super cute and super functional- it stores toys and drains but also can be used to wash shampoo out of kids hair!
