Have you found the perfect gift for the perfect someone? This holiday issue of Real simple had some bright ideas among which this glazed ceramic was featured in the gift guide under $50. I love it! It'll look great on a book shelf or a window sill. Available here for $28.

Have a safe and fun-filled happy thanksgiving!
Owl and Turkey Die-cut files by Jen Allyson.
Tammis Keefe was a well known name in the world of linen designing in 1950s. She died at an early age of 40 but she still seems to be having a large fan base of her work. Her followers have a Flickr group dedicated to her work here. One of her devoted fan Kim Knight collects Tammis's 50s linen designs on her blog along with other artists' work. Her work has become collectible now. I did a quick search and found that this owl tea towel is on auction at eBay here. It seems like a rare opportunity for Tammis's fans. So hurry!

I like downloadable products as they are so easy to get and use. Don't you? This printable stationery set is by Jinjerup. The color palette and illustrations are lovely! It has everything you'll ever need to make your own stationery - stickers, note cards, labels and even envelopes.

Miller Goodman's new wooden modular set - PlayShapes, is a toy to be enjoyed by both children and adults. It consists of 74 geometric wooden shapes which can be endlessly arranged or stacked to produce hundreds of 3D creations like boat, train, butterfly and owl. It comes in that heart print drawstring bag, which is perfect as I am sucker for good packaging.

Doesn't this owl look cute with its head tilted on the side? These owls are hand printed on hemp cotton, sewn and stuffed with batting and lavender. Lovely! The pillow has a pocket on the back where you can put a surprise love note or a greeting card. The ornaments will look super cute on a Christmas tree or to decorate gifts. Available in brown and green at Moontea.
Hobart based artist Cat Rabbit crafts uncommon pieces of jewelry and creates cute plush-toys. This charming wooden brooch is one of my favorite pieces from her sweet jewelry collection. I love how each piece is carefully etched. That vintage looking key is fabulous!

I am a huge fan of Saffron Craig's fabric patterns. She had released Owls and Fields Ranges fabric a few months ago. Today, I came across some more owls on her website. Her new Christmas fabric collection 'Little pictures' features 12 lovely images which can be used in number of ways and is available in two pretty colors - red and purple. If you are like me (who doesn't know how to hold a needle) then enjoy these pre-made funky owl softies and cushions. There are other things on her shop like bags, quilts and Christmas ornaments for which you can contact her directly through her website.
This Melabo's cake topper is for a couple who are both hardcore owl fans. I absolutely love it. We all are familiar with owl and pussycat couple, I think this couple of squirrel as a groom and owl as a bride is equally an interesting couple. It was featured on Martha Stewart Weddings. This woman seems to know where to find treasures.
