I'm in the process of decorating my 12 year-old son's bedroom in a "fish" theme. We already have the bed/comforter set; now I'm working on the rest. Any great ideas?

Lady, Was over at one of my buddies house's the other day and he had some cool fishing wallpaper. If interested, I could see where he got it.

Ladylikestofish, That sounds like fun. You can find all kinds of fish stuff in craft stores or stores that sell crafts already made. I've found lots of different wooden things that hang in my camper and at home. Sometimes tackle shops will sell things like that also.

You can take an old minnow net add some wooden or plastic fish and hang it from the ceiling to fill with his favorite toys. I have also seen some really cute pillows shaped like fish. Try Pier 1 they always have cool stuff.

Phyl, You just brought back something that I forgot all about. I was in Peir 1 about a month ago and yes they do have all kinds of fish things to decorate with. I was going to tell my kids to go shopping there for me for Christmas. Now if I can remeber this the next time I see them. I've also bought fish stamps and stencils at Wal-Mart to paint with. They also have stickers of fish I seen some really neat ones at Hobby Lobby. I found a patern for crochet fish pot holders the other day on the internet. <><Mary><>

Hi Mary:
Yes Pier 1 is a place I try to avoid - it always costs me too much money! I ended up redoing my entire kitchen because of them! I saw some really cute swizzler sticks with fish on them there while looking for a wedding gift and they have a beautiful metal fish figure - kind of looks like an angel fish - in different sizes.

skinnylee, I'd just copy it and put it on here but don't have scanner and printer hooked up right now. She can get it at http://crochetbox.topcities.com/fish_potholder.htm if that doesn't work let me know and I can send it at a later time. If she crochets there are many sites that offer free patterns.

Thanks for the great ideas! I'm gonna take you up on the idea of shopping @ Pier 1, and Mary's crocheted fish "hot pad" gave me a new resource for crochet patterns! Thanks for the feedback!

I looked up fish wallpaper @ "Wallpaper & Blinds" and found some cool paper & borders, but I'd still be interested in knowing what paper your buddy has (I haven't made any paper purchases yet).

I just saw something this week for the artist in you! A boys room that had a blue bedspread with fish all over it. Then about 3-3 1/2 feet up on the wall they had painted waves with fish and weeds under it to look like a lake all away around the room. Then they had scattered glow in the dark fish in amongst the rest of the painting. It was pretty cute. They also had a bunch of wooden fish scattered around the room.

Ladieslike to fish - just saw some really cute fish pillows and fish picture frames at Fleet Farm in Fargo. If you live close to a Fleet Farm they may also have them - best thing is they were on sale.

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
