Anchors Away

Memorial Day Weekend is upon us and while the weather is still manic, that summer feeling will soon set in. I have been thinking about all things marine & nautical- beyond the summery french sailor stripes that are so ubiquitous. I was inspired by this wonderful vintage photo below of a charming trio of British sailors. It is from a new tumblr site put together by National Geographic. You should see the site for yourself- it is a treasure trove.

The equally charming images below were popular Currier & Ives lithographs from the mid 18th century. I have nice vintage prints of these for sale in my shop. I love the twin themes of going away and returning home- two of my favorite things.

Here are some fun nautical accents for summer- to wear and to decorate with. Find these on etsy. I have loved sailor's bracelets ever since I was a kid visiting my grandparents on Cape Cod. How I wish I could tie knots like these.
