Little Dear

These special gnomes are "harvested from acorns" by Aimee Ray of Little Dear. Love the hats of the little guys and the winking owl is so sweet! I bet these will make great stocking stuffer.

A+R: Owl Mirror

This cool owl mirror is by A+R, a collaboration between Andy Griffith and Rose Apodaca. They hand pick each and every product for their stores. Their products are anything but common like this mirror. Isn't it? I have never seen anything like this before.

Pillowcases by Ruck Rover

A pair of pillowcases with artwork of Dylan Martorell. One features an owl with mice and other a tree. This set is available in four different color combinations at Ruck Rover.

Holiday Card Round Up

It's that time of the year again, when we all frequent post office. I love it the old-fashioned way; going to the post office with a stack of greeting cards and gifts. It's fun for me (even if it's just once a year). I personally like receiving handwritten cards because the warm notes inside always make me smile and make me feel special . Do you buy cards or make your own? Have you already done it for this year?

Retro Whale

Retro Whale is a team of three creative minds - Kelly, Jimmy, & Jaedon. Their work is fun, colorful and quirky. Aren't these the coasters wonderful?

Friday Freebie!

Thanks to talented Valentina Ramos for these lovely holiday themed gift tags. You can download these here.

These darling animal shaped softies are hand printed on cotton fabric with polyester filling. Arounna Khounnoraj and John Booth of Bookhou also make furniture and sculptures with a contemporary twist.

Got Craft?

When I saw this Got Craft's "Holiday Edition" beautiful poster at Poppytalk, I couldn't resist sharing it with you. After all, the show's star is an owl, hehe. Seriously, it's a perfect holiday themed poster. I love all the ornaments hanging from the tree and the owl in his red scarf is so adorable!

What's Got Craft?
Got Craft is one of the biggest Indie craft fairs of Vancouver. It started in 2007 and has grown to 50 vendors selling handmade jewelry, paper goods, ceramics and more! If you are in Vancouver, then stop by or visit them here.

Vintage Cracker Jack Tin Sign

There are not many of these vintage Cracker Jack's tin signs available out there. I found it at my local store. It features objects like scissors, hammer and car, and animals like squirrel, bear, elephant and owl (of course). I did some searching and found that it's on auction on eBay here.

Decorative Tapes

L-o-v-e these decorative tapes by Petit Collage. These tapes will look great wrapped around on a brown box, or, to decorate walls or sealing an envelope of a greeting card.

Michele Varian's Metallic Linen

What would you do if you had an extra $236? I would buy myself this gorgeous pillow. I know it's a hefty price to pay for a pillow. But aren't these just stunning? These luxurious pillows by Michele Varian are constructed with 100% linen which is decorated with metallic leather appliqué. The sides have velvet trim and silk charmeuse insert. These make me want to splurge a bit (or a lot).

Miniature Paintings

Did you have a good, restful break? I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful! I stayed at home and did a little catching up with friends and family.

Let's start our another owl-y week together by thanking Ishtar for sharing with us these wonderful miniature paintings of a Swedish painter. The artist paints all sorts of animals - seals, hedgehogs, rabbits, owsl on mini canvases and stones. Love these!

Kawaii's Lemon Grass

This Kawaii's diary is so cute that you would want to carry it with you wherever you go. It has 304 pages which makes a perfect organizer for anyone who likes to keep everything in one place. It's a calendar, planner, jotter and check list. I love the cute illustrations adorning each and every page of the diary. It's Kawaii, I agree!
