Anthropologie + Nathalie Lete

Have you seen the new collection of plates by Nathalie Lete at Anthropologie? This plate with the pipe smoking owl stands out in the lot of all the gorgeous plates. I guess, it's mainly because of the owl's attitude.

These lovely animals prints are by Darrah Gooden of Tiny Fawn created from her original paper collages. I like how these textured prints give the feel and look of an original piece. Stop by her store for birds and animals prints such as owl, raccoon, moose, bear etc.

Rango: Mariachi Owls

These little Mariachi owls play a vital role of band members in the animated film Rango. They were spotted touring the London streets to celebrate the movie release on DVD. I love these pictures particularly the one where all the owls are waiting in a line for the bus!

I had never seen mariachi owl before but after watching the movie's trailer this pack sure does look fun! See for yourself in the video below.
