Turtle Home Decor – Sea Turtle Home Decor -All things turtle
Turtle home decor is one of my favorite things to find. Which is why I chose to write a post about it.
I love turtles, and always have, which is why I want to write a post focusing on turtle home decor. I know it’s a pretty specific type of home decor, but if you’re a turtle lover like I am, you’ll appreciate my finds.
Turtles hold a special meaning for me. I’m not sure how many of you know this, but turtles represent determination, persistence and endurance.
Turtles are often considered to be one of the wisest souls in the animal kingdom.
I can relate to every aspect in which the turtle represents. I’m sure a lot of you out there can relate to these as well. We’ve all encountered obstacles in our lives. But we can learn a lot from the wise old turtle.
For me, turtle home decor captures the essence of the turtle in all their different species.
From sea turtles to tortoises, their beautiful and uniquely designed shells and their gentle nature make it hard not to love them!
Slow and steady is the name of their game, and they do it well. We could all learn a lesson from this wise old soul, to take their lessons and move at our own pace.
Adding turtle home decor to your living space is a wonderful way to pay homage to these amazing creatures. Having them around also serves as a reminder to always persevere.
Interestingly, the turtle’s body is said to represent sections of the foundations of earth.
The top of the shell represents the topography of the land. The body itself stands for the waters that flow as the life-blood through the veins of the earth.
I think we could all benefit from the advice of the turtle, as displayed on this wall hanging.
– Swim with the current
– Be a good navigator
– Stay calm under pressure
– Be well traveled
– Think long term
– Age gracefully
– Spend time at the beach
