This summer I've been to quite a lot of lovely markets. Mostly ones that combine food with lovely gifts. So apart from eating some delicious stuff, you might have guessed that I picked up some very cool items as well.

One of those is this owl plate by Ingaga. I actually picked it up from her sale section, lucky me! Anyway, she makes some stunning porcelain items. Their shapes are very pretty and they have the most beautiful teal illustrations.

Anyway, there is an online Ingaga store as well as a facebook page, so visit those if you'd like to see more!

Bookmark Subscriptions!

This is something I've been wanting to do for ages, because I know how awesome it is to get happy mail! And today I just went for it… so you can now get a random Blue Eyed Night Owl bookmark in your mail box each month. Yay!

They may be bookmarks I now have in the shop, old designs, bookmarks I haven't released yet or even a one-of-a-kind color or design. (But I'll avoid your least favorite color and/or animal if you tell me what it is.)  Delivered giftwrapped, of course!

You can choose between 3, 6 and 12 months and each one saves you a little more money than the one before as they all come with the same shipping fee. Also, the 12th month is on me if you subscribe for an entire year.

And since I love my blog readers dearly I thought I'd make an even sweeter deal for you guys… If you order in September you can even get free shipping -on subscriptions only- by using the coupon code: "DOUBLESUBSCRIBER".

Mixed Shelf #14

Every once in a while I have a huge Japanese reading kick. Now is definitely one of those times! I'm currently engrossed in an amazing book and it is making me very excited about reading a lot more Japanese fiction again.

Wanting: 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami
It has been a while since I read any Murakami. I mentioned I got stuck in one of his books and it has put me off trying any others. Which makes hardly any sense, since he was always one of my favorite authors. Of course there is his brand new release, but I have to admit I'm way more curious about 1Q84. Despite its gigantic page count...

Reading: A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki
One of my birthday gifts this year! I planned to start this a lot sooner, but I am very glad I kept it until now. It's the perfect book for this time of the year, or maybe even this time of my life. Anyway, I'm enjoying it tremendously! It's a novel, but half of it often confuses me (in a good, and very enchanting, way!) because of it's many autobiographical elements.

Waiting: Hardboiled & Hard Luck by Banana Yoshimoto
Banana Yoshimoto is one of my absolute favorite authors, if not my nr. 1… so it's quite surprising that I have never read the first book of hers I ever bought. In fact I only read half of the books on my Banana-shelf. I just like to spread them out so I can pick one up whenever I feel like it. And thankfully she's still writing and releasing books too.

Are you into Japanese fiction? And if so, can you recommend any nice novels? I'd love to hear about some new ones.

You guys know how much I love woodland items, so you can probably imagine my excitement when I spotted these Loli Millie antler headbands. They might get a few strange looks on the street, but they do look very cute!

And at the very least they'd be absolutely perfect for a fantasy fair. I've been wanting to go to one of those for ages, but can never seem to make it work. Maybe the one next spring. Who knows?! If so, I might just bring these antlers.

Anyway, I bet the could really spruce up a regular Fall outfit too. And the come in many different colors!

 So check out their Etsy shop if you'd like to see more of them.

Last Call for Sunshine

I was afraid summer was over, but was crossing my fingers for just a bit more. And I got it! This whole week is supposed to be wonderful! The perfect chance to spend time outside and wear all the summer clothes I hadn't yet.

Ring: Six - Purse: H&M - Bracelet: bought on vacation - Skirt+Top: Vera & Lucy @ By Fabrio

Like this colorful set I picked up at this new affordable shop I discovered this summer. It can be worn together or separately. I saw it in the window and had to have it. Love that print! Also, I happened to have the perfect purse for it!

Owl Things Considered

You may remember that I'm on the quest for the perfect backpack. Well, I saw one on My Owl Barn yesterday that might just be it… I love how it's a pretty owl, yet doesn't look childish. I would totally wear this outside. With pride!
And it's actually pretty cheap too! Especially on the US Amazon right now. And it's waterproof, which is a must for me. Also, the small pocket on the front actually has inner pockets. So it's definitely practical too!
