For today’s Saturday Selection I had to feature these irreverent earrings from Mentalembellisher.  An antidote to the some of the overly cutesy t-shirts available to pregnant women, why not announce your condition to the world in steampunk style?

French Tea Towel Owl

 I had to make some of my whimsical owls using these.  This one is English – he says ‘hoot’ but I made the first one saying ‘hou hou’ which is, apparently, what owls say in French.  Loving these vintage typewriter keys which my friend Ann (aka Mentalembellisher) sent me and I think make really cool eyes.
