Wearing The Redwoods

Redwoods. They're taller than any other tree in the world. They grow only along the coastal shores of Central and Northern California and a bit of Southern Oregon. As nature's cathedral, they are giant evergreen mysteries. Once you stand next to one, or sleep under their canopy, it will be impossible to forget about them!

Britton, artist and owner of Little Owl Arts https://www.etsy.com/shop/littleowlarts fell in love with the West this past summer and the Sequoias were her inspiration to design this luscious raspberry colored shirt. She named it Redwood Twins. Isn't that perfect? It's soft and so flowy. Like I could fly up to the treetops! I wear my Redwood Twins when I long for a little California.

My very first purchase on Etsy was from Little Owl Arts, a few years ago. I really don't remember how I found her shop. It probably had something to do with the word Owl. You know. I am all about Owls. Britton was making these silver bracelets with a tubular 'bone bead' strung through thin silver wire. It's still one of my very favorite pieces of jewelry. I wear it all the time. Some of you may already know about her. And if you don't, you should see this artisan's creations!

She screen prints, by hand, all her sketches onto T-shirts, hoodie sweatshirts, tank tops and yoga pants. All her designs are inspired by nature and what she might find in the wild. Wear a Fern, an Aspen tree, a Sand Dollar or a Jellyfish! Check out her fiber art and jewelry and this girl is mad about Indigo! At Little Owl Arts blog, she writes about nature, hiking and sea shore wanderings. And trees. See her artwork, her marvelous sketches and watch the process of dyeing fabric or hand screen printing right there in her own house. Meet her many pups and Posey, her parrot!

There is a quote on Little Owl Arts:

"your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it" ~ Buddha

That is my friend Britton.
