MY OBSESSION.....

I admit it. I will not lie. I have become obsessed with owls.
I have always adored them, but lately, I have crossed the line from mildly fascinated to completely enthralled. October always brings out the owl fanatics. Something about Halloween and owls just seem to go together. But, for us year round lovers of these nocturnal animals, I would like to share with you these amazing creations. Below is a Barn Owl and Mouse. The fantastic owl was made by Helen Priem and the "too-cute-for-words" mouse was made by Barby Anderson. Does it get any better than this?!! Really??!! Look at those cheeks on that mouse....and those eyes!

The next photo is also from Helen Priem.
What these talented ladies can do with felt is remarkable. If you would like to check out more of their work, please see their websites.
Enjoy,
Cyndi

  3. Wow, those are amazing! I have been slowly working on an owl pattern, but I don't know that it could compete with those!

    Thanks for sharing them.

  5. Those are fabulous! If I get one more obsession, I will have to have my own reality TV show (like Hoarders, only about art/crafts - haha!). Happy Halloween! xox!

  7. Hi Pam!
    My husband Jeff tells me he is going to put me on that show all the time because I have more craft/art supplies than most stores! -heehee
