Nautical is a nice way to sail into summer, and anchor motifs offer just a touch. You’ll spot them on outdoor pillows, table linens, beach towels, dinnerware, T-shirts, accessories and more – often in classic red, white and/or blue combinations. Sometimes, they make a statement on jewelry – a necklace pendant, perhaps, or on earrings. And, of course, kids who love all things water especially love them. Did someone say summer vacation? Stay on course.
