Owl and Phoenix Cookie Jars from Anthropologie

by Jamie Sanford on January 27, 2011

Can I just say that I love Anthropologie?  The collection of items that they carry is really well curated and fits into their developed aesthetic.

Of course, we know that I am drawn to owls, and now I get to feature 2 of them!


The Winking Owl Cookie Jar is available for $68.


Phoenix Cookie Jar is available for $69.95.


Wise Owl Cookie Jar is available for $128.

These are more decorative than anything else, putting cookies into something like this will probably result in a lot of broken cookies and crumbs.

Speaking of cookies, I totally cheated on making holiday cookies this year and used the fabulous pre-made dough from Pillsbury.

I can’t find it online but you can pick it up in the grocery store for a few dollars.  You open this up, slice into little discs, add sprinkles and whatnot and then bake.  They are quite delicious and since you do add a bit of yourself into the process, they let you cheat in the best way.

If you have time and the desire to do the real thing, AllRecipes.com has a massive cookie recipe index.

Halloween Prep Week! Owl Lantern!

by Jamie Sanford on September 29, 2010

You knew I wouldn’t be able to resist an owl item for Halloween week, right?

This owl lantern is affordable and fabulous, and could possibly fit into your decor all year, depending on how you feel about owls.

The description from World Market:

If you’re looking for a spooky accent for your Halloween festivities, whooo can resist our Hanging Owl Lantern? Handmade from metal, this owl will appear to glow with wisdom when a tea light is place inside. He loves to hang out at Halloween parties or outside on your porch, welcoming trick-or-treaters.

Whoooo indeed. The owl lantern is about 6 1/2 inches high, and is available from World Market for $9.99. In addition, Halloween items purchased from World Market before October 2nd will receive free ground shipping, which means you have plenty of time to receive your items before Halloween. Happy shopping!

USB Owl

by Jamie Sanford on September 24, 2010

All week and I haven’t linked to the entire collection of owl items on The Daily Wishlist? Click here for a full listing of posts.

The last item for Owl Week is this cute little companion to perch on the computer.


Very cute, right? The owl plugs in to your USB port and the owl moves a bit and keeps you company.

Not for everyone, I know.  Kids would probably love it, I would love it too, but I’m definitely a kid at heart so no surprise there.

The USB Robot Owl from ThinkGeek is available for $19.99.

Owl Umbrella Holder

by Jamie Sanford on September 23, 2010

I think that one of the best ways to add some personality to your home is to weave in items that are unexpected. Anyone can have an umbrella stand, but this one is just a bit more interesting.

See what I’m saying? I don’t have an umbrella stand and now I want one. Right now.

This ceramic owl umbrella stand is available from Urban Outfitters for $128.
