Boko the Burlap Owl...

The newest addition to my owl collection hails from the far reaches of Ottawa, Canada.  Isn't he great?  I just love his fierce expression and hard gaze.  His name is, "Boko the Burlap Owl."  He is a three-dimensional soft sculpture formed out of wire and fabric.  Tracy of Etsy.com, a.k.a. Squishy-fish, created this cute little fellow.  CLICK HERE to see her shop!

Oh my gosh. Awesome.
I want one too.

I checked out Tracy's shop. I love them all!! SO hard to choose.

Thanks for the tip on this shop, I hadn't seen it before.

do you have any perching little puffs at your new homestead, andrew?

Hey Lorelei! Aren't they just great? There's so much work put into them and the fabric selections used are spot on. It was a hard choice indeed, but I think I got a goodie.

Boko has sharp little wire feet. He is cute, but like regular owls... I don't suggest snuggling with him unless you want to lose an eye.

I've noticed a lot of house sparrows in my neighborhood, but I really haven't noticed many bird friends outside my windows yet. I told all of them where I was going and gave them directions, but I guess they are still enjoying their summer in East Williamsburg. Here in Sunset Park, the only bird friends I have nowadays are the ones I get in the mail!

I hope Pom Pom is doing okay. I'm sure she is. Maybe she has baby Pom Poms now. That'd be cute.

And remember... Boko is a fearsome bird of prey! No matter how cute he is!
