Introducing Nature Owls!

March brings a change in the air and also a new toy to join the Flying Star Toys collections. This month we welcome Nature Owls!

Mr and Mrs Nature Owl live in a tree and hunt in the forest. They always take time to smell the flowers and watch the clouds. It's so good to be nature-owl they would say to each other with a chuckle. Nature Owls are nice and plump because the forest provides them with lots of good food. Mr and Mrs Nature Owl have been together for years and years. I don't think they can remember how long it's been.

Currently Nature Owls come in Mr Nature Owl in brown cotton and Mrs Nature Owl in cream quilter's calico. On the reverse is something a little special, their backs are covered with a netting fabric in a most interesting pattern. Doesn't it look like feathers? And what a curious texture it has.

The first edition is called Twilight Rose after the delicate face fabric that is fringed at the edge. The Twilight Rose edition is limited to 14 Nature Owls.

Dimensions: Nature Owls sit 14.5 cm (5 3/4 inches) tall and are 15.5 cm (6 1/4 inch) wide. They are weighted to sit independently.

It was only very recently that Nature Owls came into being. Instead of waiting their turn they have insisted they be released straight way....must be something in the air :)

i really like those owls, i have to admit to being quite lazy and reading blogs (far too often!) via bloglines, i came for a proper visit today, and i really like what you've done with your blogger template. i've been learning about how html works, and have managed a few tweaks to mine but not managed to get the tabs across the top part sorted yet.

Thanks you all for your lovely comments :)

kate, thanks for popping in and of course reading my feed :) for my template I've used the template from Gecko and Fly (see the badge at the bottom of my side-bar) as a base. I've then made some alteration in Expressions Web...not perfect but it's always a work in progress.
