It’s always a good day for me when it’s raining outside. We so rarely get rain in Southern California that I really look forward to getting into the studio and creating to the sound of raindrops falling. Today I finished up this sweet lil barn owl girl all dressed up in her winter best. I created her from paperclay and she is the sister to the Steampunk owl that I made in October.



She’s wearing a ruffled collar made from vintage lace that I brought home from my shopping trip to Portobello Road in London a couple years ago.




Her top hat is decorated with more vintage lace, silk ribbon, rhinestones, vintage millinery flowers and leaves and snow white feathers.


With February just around the corner it’s time to start looking forward to creating some perfect Valentine’s projects. I’ll be spending some time on my Pinterest Boards trying to find some fresh inspiration.


Thanks for stopping by!
