Hunting Seahorses

I tagged along with my mom (an avid garage salee) to a few garage sales recently. I haven't really done much buying for years. We live in a small home and it became more about scaling down and function. But I am getting antsy! I picked up a few things. My favorite being this black Pearl Wick hamper. This summer Mav painted our bathroom white with black trim so this was a perfect addition...and *ahem* functional to boot! (we have one bathroom and 4 daughters, we have to make the most of it!)
The mermaid set Mav had when we married. Aren't they cute? Pink and black, who could ask for more? I guess I could- because I would really love some seahorses like the ones pictured.  I have this great painting of a seahorse, but it has to hang outside the bathroom door because the moisture inside could damage it.  I guess I'll be hitting a few more sales on a seahorse hunt!


  1. Hey! My Aunt Betty had those when I was growing up. I've managed to find a few. I'll keep my eyes open for ya! Cute! Zootsuitmama

  2. Love your mermaid set...I am on the hunt for a good set. I have some chalk shells and seahorses for our bathroom, for hanging up when it gets renovated...

    Your hamper is to DIE for!!! And the seahorse art is fab. I love seahorses

  3. Me too! I love seahorses as well, I recently saw a documentary about sea dragons. I didn't even know they existed, but they are so cute: little sea dragons with a seahorse head!

    The hamper is beautiful, great find!

    Have a great weekend!

  4. In our last place the bathroom walls were covered with those mermaid and fish! Not exaggerating, like probably 30-40 pieces. They're all packed away now.
