Owls....

I think by now you all know that I love owls and I couldnt resist showing this little fellow (might have shown him in a post before???). I call these my Kaffe Fasset owls as I think they look gorgeous in the funky KF fabrics. How lucky am I? The mail recently has bought me some new owls.... A friend up in Queensland, Gaye, made this lovely pendant with an owl etching. Isnt it gorgeous! I will love wearing this Gaye and thank you so much for making it as my AOTM in our swap group. I just love how Gaye has attached the pendant to the beautiful tag also...its a work of art in itself!
And my lovely friend Julie Hetherington sent me these beautiful owl beads. Wont they be fantastic for journals etc. Just LOVE them Julie...thank you so much. Julie has the most wonderful bits and pieces in her etsy shop so pop by for a visit, your might see some of these little fellows and lots of other interesting pieces..

Love the little green one...cute as!
And finally a Klimt Doll that I finished recently for a friend in the USA. I love using Kaffe Fassett fabrics for these dolls, they really lend themselves to the Klimt style I think. This one is in more pastel/soft colours that I usually use.



I hope you all have a wonderfully creative week. I look forward to visiting you blogs to see what you have been up...so much inspiration out there!
