Ceramic Bath Accessories by Umbra

Happy Friday, friends! Thank you all for spending time with me here. I'll wrap up this week with these sweet critters. Foresta is a collection of ceramic bath accessories designed by Alan Wisniewski for Umbra. The range includes three canister designs - owl, rabbit and porcupine that use part of their form for their functional design. Owl twists its head 360 to load and dispense cotton pads and porcupine stores cotton swabs to look like its quills. They are such a refreshing change from storing your toiletries in glass jars. You can find them all here.

Have a great weekend!

Bookhou: Tea Towel

I covet this owl linen tea towel by Bookhou featuring their original drawing that's printed with solvent free ink. This linen towel is naturally stronger and more absorbent than cotton so it will make drying dishes effective. And if you don't have a heart to use it to wipe counters then hang it on a wall as an art or to wrap gifts. Visit their online store to see more tea towel designs, there are total of seven lovely designs including trendy triangles, lines and more.
