Owls #Handmade #Folksy

Saw quite a few owl designs on various crafts and decided to show some on here as I hadn`t put any on here for a while.
Most people seem to be drawn to owls and in the last several months I have noticed lots of owl items appearing, whether it`s fabric, cards, art, knitted, crochet or ceramic. I have probably left out loads of the different mediums they appear in, but you get the picture.
I wonder if it`s because owls are supposed to be wise or just that they look cute that their popularity has soared lately. I always like them because they look cute.
I think I have managed a good variety of crafts to have a wide appeal. If you have some spare time do pop along to the shops for a browse as you never know what you`ll find that could make an ideal gift for someone. Or better still, something special as a treat for yourself. Go on... you know it makes sense.
Yesterday my hubby wanted to look at suits, for our daughters wedding in February, so we went to a few shops but he didn`t see anything. Today we will venture into the city and see what we can find. Not looking forward to that as he hates the city and shopping in general really. Should be fun....hmmm. Although I can start looking for my outfit then too. Yay!!
Yesterday I took two of our grandsons to the cinema and they were here with us for a while first as my two daughters and grandaughter were going shopping for bridesmaids dresses. It`s the younger daughters wedding and the older daughter and grandaughter are being bridesmaids as well as a friend of the happy couple who now lives in China. As the friend introduced them they wanted her to be a part of their big day. I would say that she probably has the furthest to come.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

The warmth of the sun on my back,
this is something that I lack.
I need the warmth of summer sun
and yet winter is not yet done.
We have yet to endure the worst
and it won`t be the first
time we`ve endured the cold
bringing all into the fold.
True British spirit comes to the fore
as we help loved ones and more.
All of those in need
we assist with word and deed.
Community spirit is not dead,
it`s starting to revive instead.
A big change is spreading across the land
as many people begin to stand
up for themselves and what they believe in
though they don`t need to make a din.
Making a difference in their quiet way,
these heroes will win the day!
