Nautical Knick-Knacks

by LifeLoveLaura on June 21, 2013

I’m obsessed with anything nautical but we know that already! It can be a seasonal thing for some, donning the stripes and the anchors in the summer. It’s a bit of a shame that shops only offer this trend in the spring and summer though as for me it’s an all year round love! It started when I was tiny and seems to have been inherited from my dad who was a Merchant Navy Captain. I think living on the outskirts of Hull has also contributed, it’s riddled with maritime history. Anything with a bit of rope or an anchor never fails to catch my eye. Have you seen the kids TV programme Grandpa in my Pocket? It is set in the most amazing beach hut! If I ever won the lottery…

Here are a few of my favourite nautical knick-knacks from Next. I need some more Grandpa in my Pocket decor in my life!

I adore the anchor bedding so much that I’m going to buy it for both mine and Big T’s room and Little T’s nautical nursery. A little OTT some might say but I’ve never done things by half!

That pirate bed is awesome! My son’s nursery is pirate themed. If only he were older than 9m so I could buy it!

Isn’t it?! Awww my boy is 9 months too! I’m seriously thinking of buying it, sticking it in the loft and bringing it down when he’s old enough. The husband wouldn’t agree though ;)
