On a Non-Food Related Note...
Isn't this happy little owl adorable? My friend Vicky is a wonderful artist and makes natural toys, art and accessories from wool. Yes, needle felted from wool. The process, according to Vicky, "involves taking a sharp, barbed needle and poking loose fibers thousands of times until the desired form is achieved" and I know these are very labor intensive and are just amazing! She started making these wool toys for her boys to play with and recently started selling them on Etsy.
She is super talented and I absolutely love all her work. This owl is one of her more recent designs and I loved it so much that I just had to buy it! I recommend that you visit her site and check out all the wonderful toys that she makes. She accepts custom orders and each toy is made to order. I promise that you will love all her beautiful art!
