Owls.

I know there are trends in scrapping and fashion and all. Last year we saw tons of owls and then deer on scrap paper and the like. I never really got into that kinda thing in my scrapbooking--it isn't my style.

My daughter fell in love with the owl pillow shown above from the Pottery Barn Kids catalog. She is nine and we're in the midst of doing her room, so I thought we could do a tween version and somehow work in those owls.

For her, it's all about the pillows.

So I headed to Etsy for some inspo...
Okay, really. I need another obsession right now. I can't help myself. Are these not the cutest things ever?
The simple applique on this one made me squeal. Love the eyelashes too.
I love how this one is made using recycled sweaters.
This one is my daughter's favorite.
And this one can be found here with many more adorable owl pillows. Such fun!!

Am I the only one who gets hung up on things like this? What are you into right now? Share your current obsession will you? I'd love to hear what you are into.

Have a great day...

My 6 year old ds is into stuffed pigs, so therefore every where I go, I am always looking for pigs. I believe he has 34 right now!

Those owls are sooooo adorable! I am into fun, quirky pin cushions and vintage looking aprons. I don't sew or cook much so I can't explain these obessions! I also LOVE the color celery green so pretty much if anything comes in that color, I must have.

Hi Trish,
I love the owl pillow your daughter liked, it was my favorite too, I guess we have similar taste. I hate to say it but my current obsession is Facebook! There is nothing creative about it but it's so addicting. I did make hand made thank you's today for my daughter's first birhtday so I guess that can count as something creative!

Happy 2009,
Barbara P.

Hi Trish!
The owls are a "hoot" ;-) And MY current obsession is deer. Fawns. Sweet faced, vintage (or not) little does. I got a kitschy little plastic one in a destash box on Ebay...then I found a lamp base that was just TOO cute. THEN Sassafras came out with their "My Dearest" and "Fawnd of You" and I was over the moon. And then I went to Urban Outfitters and found several more excuses to buy deer. HELP ME! I CAN'T STOP!
