Guest Picks: Sea-horsing Around
Lately I've noticed sea horse motifs popping up everywhere from clothing to home decor. Even though they are real-life animals, they have that whimsical, almost fairy tale–like quality about them that makes them fit in more with mermaids and unicorns than with whales and lobsters. I find that children are incredibly fascinated by these small creatures, and I love anything that can inject a sense of magic and wonder into a home where children live. — Vanessa from Silly Eagle Books
