Owls in the House

Ever since I saw Heather’s owl cake I’ve been seeing owls everywhere! I thought I’d share some of my favourites from around the web with you:

  1. The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle, is simply inspiring me!
  2. Gingiber’s 2012 Illustrated Owl Calendar is so cute! (via Paper Crave)
  3. And a felted owl! How great is this little guy by felt jar!!
  4. Or this amazing owl sweater by Kate Davies, via ThreadBanger.

We’ll be starting off the weekend with this owl DIY! Toilet paper roll anyone?!

Happy Friday!

Cuckoo for Cuckoo Clocks

When I was in New York one of my priorities was to visit the overwhelmingly fabulous ABC Carpet & Home. There are so many levels in that store that I’m not sure I even saw everything! But one of the things I did see, and fell in love with, was on the wall downstairs in The Conran Shop. Isn’t this contemporary cuckoo clock by Pascal Tarabay amazing!! I’m absolutely smitten. Functional and beautiful, all wrapped up into one!

I think my obsession may have started when Layla, over at The Lettered Cottage, posted about Camp Wandawega. Just look at this wall of painted traditional cuckoo clocks!!!

Or maybe it was when Sarah first posted the pic of this simple red cuckoo clock framed on her wall, and I thought “of course!”.

And, you can always count on the makers of the world to satisfy any odd sort of decorative cravings. Whether with string art or printed versions, the options to feed my addiction are endless!

Some friends and I recently joked about all of the uses for tiny birds, as we were at a birthday party and the hostess (and birthday girl) had just opened a gift of almost exactly these same birds. Here’s a pretty picture that tops all of our ideas guys… leave it to Martha!
