PIPERLIME Boot's Print Ad

I received Harper's Bazaar magazine in mail last week. I didn't get time to read it or even open it until last night. I flip through a few pages and see this beautiful full page winter boots ad by PIPERLIME. The boots are gorgeous, but I have to admit the white owl in the advertisement won my heart instantly. Doesn't it have an innocent expression on his face?

Halloween Owl Candle Holders And Votives

Hello! I hope you all are having a great Saturday. I found a bunch of owl candle holders and votives at Yankee Candle, which I think are perfect for Halloween decorations, and I couldn't wait to share these with you.

Vacation Pictures: San Francisco

My husband and I went to San Francisco for a few days for both business and pleasure. We always look forward to our trips to San Francisco. The weather is nice and cool compared to Tucson, where we live. We walked in the downtown in rain. It was so much fun after a long day at a business exhibition. I took these pictures of owl pouches, handbags, phone accessories and key chains at Jewelry & Pearls shop, which was on our way to our favorite restaurant, Kennedy's Curry. It's an Irish pub plus Indian restaurant, hence the name. Have you ever been there or know about this place? What do you think of it?

These pictures were taken in a shop called Lola of north beach which is situated in Ghirardelli Square (where we got some FREE chocolates!!). Amy & Ivan Nanola, the owners, have some unique collection of cards, candles, stationery, baby stuff and a lot more. I am glad I stopped by and found - cute owl soap dish, Wise owl match box, owl hair clip (handmade) and greeting card.

These owl figurines were displayed in the window of the Kanchina American Indian Gallery and an antique store (forgot to note the name of the store). If you live in San Francisco then do point me in the direction where I can find more owls. The next time I am in SF (which will be soon) I'll walk with my eyes wide open and my camera at the ready.

The Holidays are coming!

Can you believe it? It's going to be Holiday season soon. I love it. Well, it's a more of a love and hate relationship. I love that it's Holidays, weather is beautiful, families get together, exchange gifts, of course, what I don't like is spending hours in lines to shop for gifts. It's fun anyway. Right? This post is dedicated to the soon to come holidays. The first beautiful Pier 1 collage celebrates fall and I thought it would be perfect to use for this post. I created the second with using cool owl ornaments and coasters from Pier 1 Halloween seasonal collection.

Art Prints For Children

This is smart art, at least that's what I'd like to call it. Why? Because Isabelle Norman, an illustrator and a graphic designer who's the brain behind this came up with the idea of letting the customer personalize these art prints. The dialog clouds in the prints can be customized to whatever you want. Isn't that fun?

Order at Isa Form. They ship to 30 countries.

Modern Pillows

I spent a good deal of time searching and putting this together. I think it was worth it and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I wanted to share these grown-up owl pillows which could be enjoyed in a sitting room and look just subtle enough in a bedroom. What do you think?

Enjoy owl-licios pillows by Room Service for $50 each. I think it's a steal at this price. Btw, this company caters to celebrity clients like Mandy Moore, Jessica Alba. Cool, eh?

If I missed one, let me know!

Everything Linen!

Everything at Linea Carta will fit in one of the following categories: cute, unique, fresh or sweet. Linea Carta means 'paper collection' or 'paper line' in Italian. I could not stop looking at their beautiful textiles. The designs are delicate and simple. I picked out a tea towel, a pillow and a pencil bag with my favorite owl print. Check out their extensive range and be prepared to spend some time on their shop.
