My Tukoni Owls

Tukoni Tribe is a shop I always keep my eye on, as it only ever sells beautiful and cute things. Some time ago I bought a brooch of a guitar playing creature (that I somehow still haven't posted about!) and of course I also ordered the owl stickers.

I held onto them until I found the absolute perfect place for them, which ended up being my wardrobe. I have one of those big Ikea wardrobes, very plain and very white. It looks so much cooler now that it has a row of owls on it!

Anyway, the stickers (sold as two different sets) are still available in the Tukoni Tribe shop, as is a poster of the same design. But there are some other owl items too. And all the other creatures are definitely worth checking out too!

Snail Mail >> Outgoing

It occurred to me that, despite putting quite some effort into my snail mail, I hardly ever show pictures of my outgoing parcels. However, I do tend to take pictures while I put them together. So I've decided to finally post some of them.

 Anyway, this was a little surprise for a lovely mom-to-be. I went with something cute, as well as something very Dutch. The illustrations on the cutlery are the literary characters (Jip & Janneke) every single Dutch kid grows up with!

Of course I also had to sneak an owl in there. And I could not resist color coordinating everything either.

More snail mail coming soon! Including some absolutely wonderful incoming parcels...

In the Mail: alleluja

It has been a rough and uncertain time. So much so that, despite previously having been so excited about my new layout, blogging never even crossed my mind. Anyway, to cheer myself up I ordered something adorable from alleluja that was bound to make me smile. Which it did! And now that I'm back, I thought I'd show you what I picked out.

It's a porcelain kitten brooch inspired by the shape of old-fashioned cookie molds. And it has such a sweet face!

I was so excited to receive this little creature! And I hope to be wearing the brooch a lot. I also loved the colorful and careful wrapping, the cute postcard, and even the tiny business card (which I'll keep and use as a bookmark).

I've blogged about alleluja twice before. And though it had been 5 years since I last treated myself to one of Sawako's creatures, the shop is thankfully still up and running; sending out gorgeous creatures to brighten people's days.
