I’m not sure if it’s all the caps-n-gowns walking around my Columbia U-neighborhood, or the bus billboards advertising that new movie Hoot, but I’ve been noticing a lot of owls out there lately. A little more sturdy than those trendy sparrows, they’ve also been popping up on some of my favorite design sites. For starters, cutxpaste.com offers up this softy from Gourmet Amigurumi, $32. For the nightowl on the prowl for small mammals, this owl necklace, $20, from Day-Lab, will do the trick. Nelson’s classic owl clock, $120, at Twenty Twenty One will keep you perky around the clock. On the bottom row, this denim owl pillow, $62, from Doe-Sf is perfect for that reading chair. Unica Home has a few of these lovely glass owls to choose from; I like this barn owl, $132. And finally, just in case your nightvision isn’t quite as adept as an owl’s, turn on this happy owl green nightlite, $45, from Mahardry Goods. Be sure to tell them all whooooooo sent you! — Angela M.
