The Wise Ones! Collection of Owls!

The Wise Ones! Collection of Owls!

Hoot Sweet - Great Horned Owl Greeting Card by Catcanpaint

Today I'm featuring handmade designs full of my favourite birds of prey!  I have always been fascinated by these solitary and mostly nocturnal creatures.  Their strong beak and talons, along with their ability to fly almost silently, enhances their predatory nature.  Owls are often associated with wisdom and intelligence in some cultures, while in others they are seen as a bad omen.  

The 'owls' I have featured here range from bookends, book covers, cards, as well as an assortment of knitted creations.  All have been 'handmade with love' by talented artisans!  (Please click each picture for more details)

Next week I will be featuring my favourite owl 'jewellery' based collections'.

Thank you for including my stripey sock owl in your collection today. Such a lot of to choose from - I especially like Dottery Pottery's cheeky owl :) If you're a lover of birds of prey and find yourself in Hampshire you must visit the Hawk Conservancy - it's family run and a brilliant day out. They do 'fly an owl/hawk' gift days too. x

Thank you for including my owl card. A gorgeous selection of owls.

I can remember going to the hawk conservancy on a school trip and it was amazing. Going on my to do list with the children when visiting the grandparents in the summer :)

Thankyou so much for featuring my owl brooch - I love owls so much. In fact, my love for owls stems from a visit to the Hawk conservancy (which oddsox posted about) when I was in the Brownies!
