Owl Wall Hanging

Owl Fabric Wall Hanging $18 from Darlybird

How amazing is this newest find? Really. Our new owl fabric wall hanging strikes quite a chord with me. I love its combination of a sweet childlike innocence, mixed with the sophistication in the textile-work of the owl's feathers.

Truly remarkable! His visage is hand-embroidered, and each face is totally different. What's not to love? Certainly the price is unbeatable for such a charming work of art. Back is faced with fabric and includes a loop for hanging.

And where do I envision this? Almost anywhere, really. A kid's room, a toy room, a living room . . . really, with its eclectic vibe, it could almost go anywhere.

Owl Coasters

I love these and there are so many to choose from! I need more coffee tables so I can display them!

Owl Coasters

Esty Seller: MyLittleChick 
Roughly $20

Design process:
These are travertine tiles from Turkey. I like to use this specific type of travertine tile (ravini beige) because of their smooth texture with only minimal cracks and dents (mainly around the edges). They are strong and sturdy tiles that will last a lifetime. I hand stamp and hand paint each design. I bake the tiles in the oven to heat set in the design so the design can get wet but not smudge. I don't use any kind of chemical sealer because I want these tile coasters to be absorbent. I hand stamp the bottom with my name and add felt pads.
*these coasters are absorbent, the design is heat set in so the painted design will not smudge when wet will absorb moisture from your glass or cup.

*Each tile has 4 felt pads on the bottom so they will not scratch table top finishes.

*there will be some tiles with natural cracks and chips (mainly around the edges) but not enough to affect them being used as sturdy coasters.
