I’m feeling all owly this week sketching and stamping owls for Sooz’s tea towel swap that has to go out on Friday. I can’t show you the tea towels just yet but I thought I’d find a few pics of vintage owls and let me tell you there’s lots out there! It seems that owl have always been quite the trend in crafting and homewares. Up the top is a mid-century ceramic owl by The White Mole found on Flickr.You pop a tealight inside and his eyes glow.
Next we venture to 1975 and Mad about Macrame – back in the 80’s wit knit post both Monika and Amelia commented that their crafty memories of that decade were Macrame. There was certainly no shortage of pot plant hangers in our house at that time but until this week I’d never heard of owl macrame. This one is from a great blog Cathy of California.. If that tickles your fancy there’s plenty more macrame owls to be had over at Bill Davenports Treasury of Macrame Owls.
Back to modern day craft I love this cut out and make brown owl by Alice Melvin…
