Almost 1 year ago I had my fourth and last child, Sesaly Breeze, born on August 29th. I’ve never had an affinity for birds, but upon her birth I became obsessed with owls. Her nursery is completely decked out with all sorts of owls – owl wall stickers, owl dolls, owl blankets, quilts – you name it (see crib on right)! So I decided to round up some of my favorite owl illustrations and creative works that I’ve found on the web in the past year.
