Feature Friday: TheClayShoppe

So besides my obvious weakness for cats, I also have two less obvious weaknesses for adorable-ness from the animal world: owls and hedgehogs.

Don't ask me why, i don't get it either. But I do. I guess I just fall into some kind of weird indie stereotype, because I see cute owl and hedgehog stuff on etsy regularly, and it makes me whimper with joy.

Yes, I know, the idea of a 30 year old woman whimpering with joy over an embroidered hedgehog or polymer owl is pretty pitiful. Ah well. I'll take the little joys where I can get them.

Anyway, this month's featured EtsyBlogger is this hyperactive duo who have four (yes, four!) shops on etsy - and on one of them, TheClayShoppe, I found this adorable little owl mold. A mold that would allow one to make as many of these cute little owls as desired. I saw this, and a flash of a household strewn with little owls danging from the windows, the ceiling, the walls popped into my head.

And then the expression on my husband's face followed it, and I decided to shut that daydream down. But I still wanted to share this bit of adorable-ness with you all.

They also have a blog with a giveaway going on right now (for the next two days I think) for my fellow giveaway fanatics.

3 bits of commenty goodness:

They are both lovely works. Owls are creatures of such intrigue. I think everybody is drawn to them to a certain extent. Hope all has been going well with your studies and work. Have a great week :)
