Guest Post by Papernstitch: An Owl Inspired Gift Guide

Let's welcome Brittni on My Owl Barn as the very first guest blogger. Brittni is an owner of Paperstitch online exhibition site that helps independent artists and designers promotes handmade products. She has prepared the "Give a Hoot About Handmade: An Owl Inspired Gift Guide from Papernstitch" for all us owl-lovers by picking few of her favorite products from her site.

I'll let her take it from here...

Hey there. It’s Brittni from papernstitch, the curated exhibition site for amazing art and handmade goods. Today, I am sharing my top ten owl-inspired treasures, exclusively on My Owl Barn, that will send you into handmade hoot heaven…

1. Patina Owl and Branch Necklace: Bring out your boho side with this charming, antique owl necklace from Belle Hibou.
2. Lace Owl Cufflinks: Add some flair to those boring cuffs with a pair of Beauty Spot cufflinks that ooze with whimsy.
3. Goldie the Owl Organic T-Shirt: Get wise with this golden organic owl tee from artist An Li Liu.
4. Mammam Collection Owl Tote Bag: Throw in your favorite magazine and a beach towel, and you are ready to catch those summer rays with this clever tote bag from Bold Ideas.
5. Pondering Owl Print: Bring some character to humdrum walls with an owl linocut print from Retro Modern.
6. Little Creatures Bookmark Set: Curl up with a book and a few (creature) friends with this illustrated bookmark set from Tucker Reece.
7. Salvaged Silky Oak Owl Brooch: Add a bit of hand drawn flair with this timber brooch made of recycled wood by Jetta’s Nest.
8. Owl Softie: Cozy up with this Haley by Hand chevron owl. Or pass it along to your daughter as a thoughtful gift she’ll love for years.
9. Hand Embroidered Barn Owl Clip: Keep frizzy summer hair at bay with this hand stitched hair clip from Ordinary Mommy.
10. Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner Tee: And finally, get cute and comfortable with this quirky, hand lettered owl tee, from Dressing on the Side, that poses the question, “Guess who’s coming for dinner?”.

The gift guide has something owl-some for everyone. Those owl cuff links and wooden owl brooch will make great Father's day gifts which is right around the corner.
