Swig: The Felt Things





Adorable felt animals by Swig, you can see more of her lovely creatures here.

Remember, the "bored owl" I blogged here.

Vintage Animal Alphabet








Can you imagine the delight of been the owner of these wonderful alphabets? Every letter is adorned with charming illustration of an animal or a bird starting with that alphabet in beautiful, vibrant colors. Truly, each one is an art piece in itself. I stared at each one of these characters for a long time who are demonstrating human like qualities. How adorable is the Newt in the night gown, Lion walking with the lamp and our little guy - owl, perhaps, patiently waiting for the night to fall?

Little Owl Wallpaper




I am loving this "Little Owl Wallpaper" at Anthropologie designed by Edwyn Collins in collaboration with Katja at Elli Popp. It features simple owl sketches on a light background which will blend and look great with your existing decor in the bedroom, the sitting room or even in the bathroom. 

You can find plates, mugs and other ceramics based on Edwyn's same lovely owl illustrations in my previous post here.

2012 Calendar Round-Up Part 2

Oana Befort: Wintery Owl




If I had to choose just one artwork that represents the cold, snowy Winter and holidays to me, I would pick this "Wintery Owl" by Oana Befort.

If you are interested in bringing this little guy home then you can contact Oana by sending her an email. Her contact info. is given on this page on her website.

Some detail on the piece:
"Wintery owl" is an original illustration done in watercolors and acrylic white ink. There are no prints of it at the time. The illustrations measures 9" 1/2 x 12" 1/2 and it can be yours for $130 (plus shipping).

Klay Arsenault partnered with Anna Maria Horner to create this new collection -"Owls n’ Buddies". These special edition plush art dolls are hand crafted, one-of-a-kind and made out of Anna Maria's beautiful fabric. You can view all the owls and their friends from the range here.
