loving: owl-y things

look what i just bought!
tell me this isn’t the cutest little tea set ever. well, actually, it’s a sake pot, but i’m going to use it for tea – especially since it comes with a removable metal strainer. thank you, anthropologie, for always having the cutest stuff ever.

i’d actually been looking at the owl stuff on the anthropologie web site for awhile, ever since i fell in love with jinnie lee’s owl tea set after reading her fantastic interview with victoria over at sfgirlbybay. interestingly – and tell me if i’ve got this wrong – jinnie lee’s white set has to be bought in separate pieces; the teapot is $28 and the cups are $24 for two. but i ordered the gray set because the mugs supposedly come with – unless they’re sold out, but usually anthropologie is pretty clear about that. anyway, the description says “owling sake pot and cups,” so we’ll see what i get in the mail this week. i’m excited either way. and now i want the matching salt and pepper shakers.

anthropologie’s sister store, urban outfitters, also has some pretty cute owl stuff, like this lamp (left – i’d pair it with this shade, in the light blue color). and i found this umbrella stand from tonic home after holly posted about it months ago. i don’t want to pay 120 bones for it, but it’s pretty cute, no?

owls are so trendy, i know, but i can't help but love them and i’m so excited for my little tea/sake set. what items are you loving lately? share!
