An Owl on My Desk

A tiny winged creature flew through the window and into my bedroom last night....

...whispered sweet little "hoot, hoot" and perched himself on my table.

This morning, he requested a shiny new coat of colors to make him stand out from the rest... I painted him a silvery blue color with hints of lilac to make him sparkle under the moonlight.


I discovered this lovely owl on my last weekend family trip (in case you're wondering if I had carved him out of wood myself). I learned that he was traditionally handmade by the local craftsmen and sold locally for tourists who came to visit the area. Unfortunately, there has not been much exposure to their business and they only receive a relatively small amount of opportunities to what I think should be a lot bigger than they have now. So I'm thinking of collaborrating with these talented local craftsmen to recreate other little owlettes (maybe other creatures too!) and sell them in my shop. Just lending a hand to help them thrive better in a much larger forest. :)

The Blue Owl is now perching and hooting happily in my shop. Maybe you'd like to pay him a visit and help me support our local craftsmen? :)


  1. how wonderful that you are considering sharing business with local people! such a charming owl.

  2. He's great. Are owls lucky symbols like elephants with raised trunks?

    1. Hhm. I don't think it has a symbolic meaning for the locals, but it sure is lucky for me! :)

  3. Hootie hoot hoot! So CUTE! The color you've added is fantastic, and so is all your help for the local craftsmen.

  4. Congrats on the sale! He is just too super cute!!!! :) I'd love to see more of them!

  5. Your owl is adorable. I love owl and I paint them as much I can.
