Wonderful addition to the dollhouse!



I have a fondness for owls-I'm not really sure where it came from but I suspect that they remind me of my grandma. I have few memories of childhood, but I remember she used to wear large costume jewelry owls when I was a child and owls always make me think of her. When I saw Julia's little needlepoint owls on her blog http://bearcabinminiatures.blogspot.com/ I knew I had to have something with an owl on it from her for my dollhouse. I purchased this wonderful little owl tapestry- it is even more beautiful in real life- wish I could pass it around like show in tell in grade school. I decided that it was so special it should hang in the bedroom of Hans and Rose's apartment above their shops. Thank you Julia- I truly love it! If you would like to see more of Julia's work please visit her Etsy shop here: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6814727 There is lots of great items to drool over :)

I love it, too! Owls are so neat. My cousin had barn owls in his barn all the time when I was growing up and we would go peek in at them at dusk--so neat to see their shiny eyes peering back at you from the rafters!
